EP278 The 3 Types of Confidence Women Entrepreneurs Need

It goes without saying that confidence is key when it comes to being a fierce female entrepreneur. However, confidence does not come easily to everyone, so it needs to be learned and practiced. A lack of confidence can hold you back and make you feel stuck, but what you may not realize is that gaining confidence can be a fantastic growth strategy.

In today’s episode, I discuss the importance of building your confidence while growing your business and why not all forms of confidence will result in business success. I explain the three types of confidence you need to help you scale your business and tips on how you can build your confidence while growing your organization. I also explain the importance of being curious and asking for blunt feedback and why it’s okay if your work-life and personal-life is unbalanced as you scale your business.


“Building confidence is absolutely critical for all women leaders, but it is completely non-negotiable for women entrepreneurs.” – Eleanor Beaton
