Overcoming Fear and Just Doing It

 Overcoming Fear and Just Doing It

One of the most common things I encounter when working with my clients is fear. Three of the biggest fears I encounter are: fear of failure, fear of success and fear of the unknown. I’m here to tell you that even as a surfer who braves the cold, Northern California surf, I have certainly had to face my own set of fears, not only in the water, but on land, too. I wanted to share a story with you about this. In 2001, I was in the early stages of starting a non-profit called C.E.O. Women, an organization dedicated to helping low-income immigrant and refugee women become entrepreneurs. I was planning our first networking fundraising event to attract donors and volunteers in San Francisco.
