So what is stopping them?
Well according to my recent survey more than half fear failure, and the second biggest worry is money. Welcome to the common and vicious thought cycle - of course if you think you are going to fail you will worry about money, because if business fails, where is the income coming in from?
J.K Rowling famously said 'it is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.' Sometimes you just have to take the leap of faith.
I recently gave a talk where we discussed the common belief of not being good enough - the thing is sometimes that belief is real... you just need to add a 'yet' to the end of the sentence. When we remove the belief linked to 'imposter syndrome', the feeling or thoughts we have of not being good enough despite being at the top of our game, despite life being pretty rosy actually, despite attracting all the best things, then we are free to know what is real. Sometimes we are not good enough (yet) - sometimes we need more experience, training, qualifications, skills...but if you are using that as a reason not to start you are procrastinating!
So if you want to make money doing what you love, if you are that one, or even half a person who is ready to quit your job for a career turning your passions to profits then simply:
1) Decide what you want to do and by when
2) Do your research
3) Work out your finances
4) Identify your support network
5) Decide what is the next step
