Hey there, amazing mompreneur! Creating a business is a fantastic journey with exciting successes and challenges. If you’re feeling a lack of self-confidence as you grow your business, don’t worry—I’m here to support you! Here are five practical tips I share with my clients to help them build confidence while they focus on growing their businesses.

1. Anchor Yourself in Truth to Build Confidence

Life can sweep you up in a whirlwind of emotions, blurring the lines between what’s real and the fear-driven stories we tell ourselves. It’s crucial to quiet those whispers that cast doubt on your capabilities.

You can not run a successful business if you are playing that broken record in your head that you are not enough, can’t do it, or don’t know where to start. (PS- If you want to learn more about the thoughts holding you back, check out this blog post.)

Take Confidence Building Action: Redirect your focus to what is TRUE: your talent, your passion, and the invaluable contribution you’re making to your family and community.

2. Create a Solid Plan to Gain Confidence in How You Will Create Success

Business owners who lack confidence typically do not have a solid action plan in place. Sure, they have an idea of what they want to accomplish, but they do not have a written plan with a solid strategy to carry it out.

Action plans are not just a piece of paper with goals written down; a solid plan will show you a strategized way to success. By having a business action plan in place, you can be confident that you are on track to business success, even when hard seasons hit.

Take Action Knowing You’re Going In The Right Direction: Create a solid action plan and read through it monthly; knowing you are putting your efforts in the right places will help build your confidence.

3. Do NOT Get Distracted From Your Goals (Protect the Confidence you are Building)

Commit to an unwavering focus on your end goals. Do not go down the rabbit holes that take you away from the strategies you have in place. There are so many online courses and programs that want your attention. But every step you take away from your action plan, the further you get from your goals. The further away you get from your goals, the more confidence you lose.

Take Action with Boundaries that Protect Your Confidence: Create a laser-like focus on your action plan and set boundaries that prevent you from going down rabbit holes. Every step toward your goal adds to your self-confidence.

4. Celebrate All Wins – Big and Small to Build Confidence

Every single win counts—yes, every last one! Those social media shares, each new subscriber (even if it’s your bestie), and every positive review stack up, building a mountain of evidence of your evolving success. When you celebrate these milestones, you fuel your confidence. How does celebrating your wins help you gain confidence? Because having awareness around your wins and celebrating them is a way to create tangible proof that you’re making strides, however small they may seem. When we recognize the work we have put in and the results we are achieving, we gain confidence!

Take Action With Your Business Wins: Every month, go back and write down your wins! Did you add a new client to your schedule? Create a lead magnet? Gain more subscribers/followers? Or if it is a hard season, maybe you can celebrate that you didn’t quit. Whatever they are, write them down, and then CELEBRATE!

And for those mamas out there who have a hard time celebrating themselves, you might need to make a list of how you can start to celebrate you! Yes, I see you, little miss “my hobby and fun is my work and-or kids”. It is important to celebrate your achievements, even if it feels awkward at first.

5. Surround Yourself with Community Built Confidence

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and certainly not alone. Create a network of strong women who know firsthand what it takes to juggle motherhood while building a business. Connecting with women who understand your journey will offer you reassurance about your business progress and remind you of your potential for success. Whether working with a business coach like me or joining a mastermind group, immerse yourself in an environment where reassurance is served generously. This network is your sounding board, reality check, and cheerleading squad all rolled into one.

Take Action to build confidence through community: Commit to finding three women in the next 90 days who will support you as you grow your business while building your confidence. If you know who these women are already, but have been out of touch, reconnect in the next 30 days.

The Truth About Self-Confidence

Building your confidence isn’t going to be an overnight transformation. Like your business, it grows incrementally. In between the school runs and strategy sessions, remember to pause and reflect on your incredible journey. You are doing something phenomenal. And with each small step forward, you’re not just building a business; you’re creating a legacy.

Go forward with grit, grace, and the knowledge that you’ve got this. Because believe me, you truly do.

You are the heart and soul behind your business, and with each passing day, your self-confidence will bloom, reminding you of the powerhouse you are. Keep pushing forward. You were made for marvelous things.
