It takes guts to be an entrepreneur. It is much easier to work for someone else than it is to build your own business. Through passion and persistence, you know it is the way to go. Fear of failure and thinking about what others might think of you weighs on your self-confidence and makes you feel vulnerable. Embracing fear and leaning into your discomfort produces real personal growth and development.

It is vital to surround yourself with people who support you, encourage you, and inspire you to dream big. At The NIIC, we coined the phrase: Dream Big. Get Real. Start Small. It’s our way of saying that you don’t have to compromise what you think or believe is possible. We can guide and inspire you to activate your business.

Self-confidence is an essential entrepreneurial skill. Knowing how you might behave or react to obstacles and identifying how you might perform in various situations might set you up for success. Take this short 14 statement self-confidence self-test and see how to improve your abilities.
