Stepping Out of Our Comfort Zone

All of us are stepping out over the precipice of our comfort zone we take on that next new client, hobby, partner, or that next new skill set or tool. New budding business owners are in anguish at having to somehow invite clients into their brand new practice. There is so much uncertainty in their professional career. They feel so vulnerable to rejection, and more devastatingly, they are vulnerable to their own self-talk.
