Laura Murillo Shares the Top 5 Mistakes that New Entrepreneurs Make

After completing her first year in business and working with many female entrepreneurs in their first year of business, Mindset & Life Coach Laura Murillo noticed many mistakes that we all tend to make. While the first year tends to be the hardest because you’re probably a solopreneur, trying to fit the puzzle pieces together with how everything works just so you can bring in money can be overwhelming – even after having learnt the perfect strategy,  many can’t seem to move the needle forward in their business.

They buy the courses, invest in group programs & top level business coaches but still fail to see results. Why? Because they haven’t invested in their mindset strategy. So many new female entrepreneurs think it’s just fluff because they think it’s just about “thinking positive” & telling themselves “I can do this” in front of a mirror everyday. Mindset counts for 80% of the work a new entrepreneur must have in their business, and here Laura shares 5 Common Mistakes New Entrepreneurs tend to make in their first year of business.

1. They are waiting for things to be perfect.

Perfectionism always tries to get the best of us by preventing us from moving forward. It’s definitely a sign that you fear making mistakes and you might also fear what other people would think of you if things don’t seem perfect.

What you should do: Journal what’s the worst that could happen & acknowledge that progress is better than perfect.

2. They worry about what others will think.

Opinions are based on what people go through in their own life experiences. What does this mean? It means that it would be impossible to please the opinions of 7.8 billion people so how would we know which decision to make?

What you should do: Ask yourself whether you’re here to live someone else’s life or yours.

3. They don’t know the ‘why’ of their business. 

Setting goals is great but setting INTENTIONAL goals are better. Why? Because there is no point setting goals if there is no meaning behind it. Without meaning, you lose the motivation, drive & commitment to keep going even when things don’t go as planned.

What you should do: Reflect how your life would change if your business moves forward.

4. They set unrealistic goals

It’s understandable how much we all desire to see instant results. But when we rush to make things happen it’s because you’re giving yourself impossible deadlines. This makes you feel overwhelmed, anxious and leads to procrastination.

What you should do: Improve your time management & build a business around your life.

5. They are staying in their comfort zone.

We’ve all heard it. Great things don’t come from comfort zones but why do we stay there? Because it feels cozy, comfortable & a lot better than fearing the unknown!

What you should do: Uncover what your most deep rooted fears are and learn to step away from the comfort zone.

If you do the inner work, build an effective mindset strategy & take action, you’ll be on your way towards building a sustainable business. To help you kickstart your mindset strategy, Laura shares with us her FREE guide: The 10 Step Roadmap to Achieve Ultimate Success for ambitious women and female entrepreneurs, who are ready to remove their mindset blocks & claim their next level of success in their life & business.
