"Fear Not a Factor" 

By Felicia Lee

Being a business owner doesn’t have to be a frightening experience

How many of you have had a dream of owning your own business? (raise your hand please). You have sat in presentation after presentation with many resources. You leave the meeting pumped….

What happened over time? Fear….. The bible tells us that God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind.. The words sound wonderful right? I come to you as someone who spent twenty years assisting her parents with their successful home-based business.

It is warm and fuzzy supporting someone else business. We can cheerlead and do everything needed for the administration to be successful... Unfortunately, in supporting everyone else our vision can go lacking. Why did it take me so long to step out of my comfort zone to walk in what God has for me? To be honest I found myself being compared to others.

Through prayer, fasting and understanding God’s word for my life I decided that I wanted to see what was on the other side of writing a flyer to offer my services. I recently joined a business selling $5.00 jewelry. This assignment as an independent consultant has taken me way out of my comfort zone. I have a sponsor who was not pushy but invited me to see how the business could fit into my future. Constant training is important in being successful. It is okay to better oneself.

I have realized that failure only comes when the daily grind is non-existent. Yes, it can be frightening but the reward comes one day when you reflect on seeing others encouraged by your life. I encourage you to be fearless as we only have 1 life to live. Our life is really not our own.
