Not sure you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur?

If you’re an introvert, empath, homebody, or just plain shy, read this twice:

You don’t have to be an outgoing, type A go-getter to start and grow a successful business.

I promise.

Thick skin and charisma aren't prerequisites for success. They are skills you can build without changing your personality or compromising who you are.

In today’s MarieTV, media strategist and B-School grad Angela Chee helps me answer this far-too-common listener question from Tamara:

“I have this irritating belief that I just don't have entrepreneurial skills. I'm quite shy. I'm not the pushiest of people. I'm introverted. I feel like all these qualities are NOT good if I want to be a successful business woman. Can people like myself still create a successful business?”

This dangerous myth about “what it takes” squashes thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs like Tamara before they even get started.

Don’t let it stop you, too.

Watch now and learn how to:

  • Gain the business skills you need without changing your personality.
  • Build unshakeable confidence in your unique voice.
  • Get over your fear of being on camera — for good.
  • Grow a mega-successful brand without leaving the house.
  • Delete the destructive stereotypes that hold you back.
  • Be 100% yourself and THRIVE in business.

If you dream about starting a business but struggle with self-doubt, watch this episode now.
