155: How to Overcome Shame in Your Business


Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough? Like you made the wrong decision? Like everyone else is ahead of you?

Let’s talk about shame. This episode is all about how shame shows up in our businesses, why it’s there, and what you can do to get rid of it. The more we talk about it, the less power it has over us. I’m sharing practical steps to overcome shame in your business. 

Many of us had no background in business before we started our own, and that can cause feelings of inadequacy, but I think it’s the opposite! You are brave for putting yourself out there, resilient for learning as you go, and worthy of love and respect from yourself and others no matter what. 

Shame is heavy. It’s time to lighten the burden. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What causes you to feel shame about your business
  • Why you never need to feel ashamed of your business decisions 
  • The growing pains that come with running a business
  • The vulnerability in starting a business
  • Accepting that there’s no straight line to success
  • Why it’s so important not to judge others or yourself 
  • How to take the shame out of the things you are ashamed of 
  • Getting the support you need 

The only person who truly knows the challenges and the successes of someone’s business is the business owner themself. No one goes through this process without facing challenges, so if you’re comparing yourself to someone else and feeling bad about where you’re at, it’s time to stop. You deserve better. Be proud of your work and remind yourself that you’re doing your best.
