9 Biggest Fears Of Entrepreneurs

We read about their successes on the internet, in business magazines or watching them tell their success stories on television. You see them with their ever-sparkling smiles, dressed up in their branded suits. Perhaps even their luxurious meals and exotic holidays in different parts of the world.

But what we do not see is the various fears they have in them despite their overwhelmingly confident appearances. Beyond their flamboyant lifestyles and seemingly unbreakable self-esteem, they are as humane as we are when it comes to dealing with a universally known emotion; FEAR.

Even as early as their business startup stage, capital without a doubt becomes a prime concern. Speaking of capital, SME business loan

sis an option if one has the desire to venture into the idea of entrepreneurship. But do remember that certain considerations must be made.

Here are the 9 biggest fears of entrepreneurs:

Paperwork -Whether its bills, charts, tax forms, or documentations, they are nightmares to entrepreneurs due to the potential mess and confusion it can cause. It is also fatal in the sense that making even a minor mistake such as not writing their names in full can result in tax return delays etc. Not to mention they have to take up time sorting out such mistakes, and that is certainly time consuming.

TV Series - While watching TV series can do no harm, but this is not the case for entrepreneurs as TV series can result in addiction and sleepless nights which will cause them to wake up late for appointments or not being fully alert while negotiating extremely important deals and that can result in losses.

Eggs - While eggs are known for its nutritional benefits, it is a no-no for entrepreneurs as eggs resembles the number “0”, which could well symbolize how their business will turn out.

Flowers - As beautiful a flower is, it never stays alive for long, and thus it is a metaphor of a short-lived success; the last thing an entrepreneur wants. With the piling up credit card debt and SME business loans debt, the short-lived success is shortened even further.

Turtles - While turtles are utterly harmless animals, they are superbly slow and neither entrepreneurs nor their businesses can be like the turtle in terms of growth and returns. Natural born entrepreneurs probably routed for the hare as kids (to their great disappointment).Employment - Being told “I am offering you a job” is a direct threat to their business goals and motivation because it gives them the temptation to think they can easy money (albeit much lesser) just sitting in their cubicle staring at the computer screen all day rather than jumping from one place to another to meet different people whose names they struggle to remember anyway.

Waterfall - The downward movement signifies the way their business will grow thus they prefer beaches and oceans which signifies “abundance”.

“No” - Getting “no” for an answer can mean anything from failing to close a lucrative deal, obtain loans or convince investors. Yes, the simplest yet extremely on-your-face word sends shiver down their spines!

“I will think about it” -For them, it literally reads as “Sorry, I am not interested” or “I am afraid this cannot work out” to them. They may use this phrase regularly, but hearing it uttered to them send shivers down their spines!

So in spite of their appearances that often resemble a picturesque of unshakable self-esteem, they are indeed afraid of some things that may not be outright fearful. Fortunately, there are ways to overcomefears of entrepreneurship. But fear is not entirely just a weakness, as channeling it in the right way can be the-ultimate drive to success.
