I have no idea what I'm doing

How often do you feel this way?

If your answer is "often" or "always", you're in good company. From the poll on my Instagram stories, it looks like most of us feel pretty clueless much of the

time. I think this is to be expected, especially for people who are trying new things, building a business, or attempting to change the world. If this describes you, then you are in uncharted waters, and it only makes sense that you will need to use guesswork and adjust your plan frequently.

If that "I have no idea what I'm doing" feeling is overwhelming today, let me make a couple of recommendations.

First. Reach out to someone who is trying something new and ask for their experience. Even if they look like they've got it all together, I promise you, they have no clue what they are doing most of the time. And, by reaching out to a kindred spirit, you begin connecting to people around you and building a supportive community. You know how I love a supportive community!

Next, listen to the most recent episode of the How I Built This podcast (here). I can think of many examples of people who created successful businesses when they had no idea what they were doing, but these two share their ignorance very openly, and I just love it.

Don't stress. You are right where you are supposed to be, and you have everything it takes to figure out the next step. You've got this.
