Biz Bomb – Pushing Through Fear of Getting Yourself out There
Drumroll please!!! The secret to pushing through the fear that comes with running a business? Is realizing that the fear doesn’t go away. Not much of a secret hey? No matter how long you’ve been in the business, you will always be fearful, feel vulnerable about something!
You may feel impostor syndrome, have self-worth issues, or just feel like your confidence has gone out the window. You are not alone in feeling this way. In fact, a lot of times when we sign up to be a health coaching, we don’t actually realize that means that we were going to have to put ourselves online out to a bunch of strangers.
We get it! It still feels uncomfortable putting ourselves out online. It always feels uncomfortable launching a new product to the Internet *cough* like Kendra's HTMA Expert Course *cough*. It always feels uncomfortable when you're vulnerable. Putting yourself out there online is like sitting on a podium and letting people throw judgment at you.
But with fear, can come great reward and success! And if you don’t fit through the fear, how will you ever know if you’ll achieve your goals and establish yourself as a successful business owner?
So the secret is: the fear doesn’t go away. And you absolutely MUST push past it. No matter how many courses you do, unless they are self-help courses, that fear will remain.

Hey guys, Kendra here. Welcome to your Biz Bomb episode of the 360 Health Biz podcast. So this is where we give you a super quick tip for your biz and it's so juicy and it's so awesome that it's basically like dropping a bomb on your brain and then your head explodes.
So today we're going to talk about pushing through fear and I'm going to tell you the number one secret to pushing through the fear of putting yourself out there on the Internet. Are you guys ready for it? We're going to get right into it. Drum roll please. The secret to pushing through fear is realizing that the fear doesn't go away. It doesn't go away.
Regardless of where you are in your business, when you're trying something new or you're doing something a little bit different or doing something out of your comfort zone. And let me tell you guys, you cannot run a business inside your comfort zone. So the fear, it doesn't go away.
I still get scared every time I put something new out online. Every time I do anything that's a little bit different than what I've currently been doing up until that point, I still get scared. I still have a bit of self-worth issues and I still feel the fear of putting myself out there. And I think this is a really, really important thing to realize. Even though you might feel a little bit annoyed with me right now because when you realize that the fear doesn't go away, what you understand is that you just have to push past it, right? And I think a lot of us, we have a lot of fear. We might have impostor syndrome, we might have self-worth issues, we might just not have a lot of confidence. And a lot of times when we signed up for our health coaching school, we didn't actually realize that meant that we were going to have to put ourselves online out to a bunch of strangers. It's a weird thing, right? It's not normal.
So the thing is there's no point in waiting until you get that next course or you're like, "If I do this, I'll feel more confident. Or if I get this knowledge, I'll feel more confident or I'll feel better about myself." Whatever it is, there's no point in waiting because regardless of how many courses you've taken, you're still going to feel that fear.
So when you know this, you realize that you just need to push through it. The only way to get over it is to not let it hold you back. And that is the thing, regardless of where you are, the fear is still there. The biggest difference though is that the fear stops holding you back. The fear stops being an excuse for not taking action. Okay?
So like I said, I still feel the fear and when I feel it, I acknowledge it and I realize that it's uncomfortable. I try to sit in it for a little while and be like, "Okay, this is pretty uncomfortable. I don't know about this," but I don't let it hold me back. So there's no point in continuing to update your education to take more and more health certification courses, thinking that that's going to give you more confidence. That is not going to make the fear go away. It doesn't go away. I've said it, I'm going to say it again. The fear does not go away. The uncomfort does not go away. It always feels uncomfortable putting yourself out online. It always feels uncomfortable launching a new product to the Internet. It always feels uncomfortable when you're vulnerable. Putting yourself out there, basically sitting on a podium and letting people throw judgment at you, that's uncomfortable, and that's never not going to feel uncomfortable.
So now that you know this, hopefully what you realize is it's uncomfortable. Running a business, it's uncomfortable. It doesn't feel good. It feels weird. It's scary. It makes you doubt yourself. But if you don't push past the fear, then you're never going to get yourself out there. Which means you're never going to have a successful business and you're never going to achieve those big, big, big goals that you have.
