The good news first. We have product. I’m in business.
The bad news?
I’m afraid to launch. Can I really sell 2400 pairs of socks?
Hard to believe, right? I have years of experience growing successful businesses, and yet, I’m having trouble pulling the trigger.
What’s holding me back?
I know everything isn’t perfect, so I’m waiting until it is.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, and I just need a few more weeks to remember all the things.
I’m afraid that nobody will buy our socks, and then what?
I’m afraid to fail.
You know that voice in your head? The one that stops you from moving forward? The one that gives you permission to make excuses?
That voice has been loud for the last few weeks. I’m sharing this with you because I bet you know how I feel. It happens to most of us.
And I’ve decided a little fear is a good thing. It keeps us in check. But, even if all the bad things happen, we’ll just create a new plan. That’s the best part about e-commerce. We can switch it up, and try again.
Nobody’s really watching.
And if we keep trying and learning, we’ll make progress. We don’t have to be stuck. And we don’t have to be afraid to try new things.
So, if you feel a little stuck today, or a little lost. I get it. But I promise you, for almost every business I’ve seen, there is a path to success.
It’s highly likely that it will take a few tries to find it. And that’s ok. Most people quit too soon. Or just never really start.
So, I’m just going to start.
This week, we’re running an event for “Proof of Concept”. I’ve partnered with an Influencer for this one. Let’s see what happens when we make an offer to a curated audience.
Stay tuned and I’ll tell you what we did and how many socks we sell.
After that, no more excuses. I’ve got to sell some socks!
