Course Description

Many dream of starting a business, but let fear of failure stop them turning their ideas into a business… preferring to stay in jobs they don’t enjoy rather than following their dreams and passions – feeling trapped in worsening situations.

Contrary to belief, life is filled with endless opportunity but too often we get caught up in our internal dramas. As a result, we walk around blinkered by fear and fail to see what is available and open to us.

If you’re ready to take control of your life and start living the life you desire this, course will help you to put fear into perspective. You will understand the role that it plays in keeping you safe but realise that keeping yourself safe will prevent you from succeeding.

This course will guide to you to remove the fear of starting a business. Discover how to use the fear to drive you forward. Learn to listen to your fears and address them so that you can move forward with clarity of mind and a calmness to deal with whatever life throws at you…The course is delivered online using a combination of videos, audios and worksheets and available to you via our private member site – giving you instant access via your computer, tablet or smart phone.

The course is broken down into four modules to be taken over a four week period. However, as the whole course content is available to you immediately you can set your own pace – you have total control and will have unlimited access to your course for one year from date of purchase.
