Charlie's Story

The Fear to Founder program has honestly been quite transformational. In fact the last 48 hours I think I've finally bounced out the other side and am now committed to leaving my job at the end of April (if I can last that long!) and have finally seen what I'm doing as a business not just a hobby. For me my biggest blockers have been mindset related (fear not of doing this - as it's something I'm passionate about - but fear of not being able to make it pay financially). So to get to grips with that, to really deliver into what those issues were and how to work through them and have the ability now to manage them when they surface again, has been a game changer for me. I feel like I've just elevated myself and my confidence way beyond where I was. I'm now pushing myself to do things I wouldn't have had the balls to do before. It helped me identify my strengths, how I can build on those and how those are my USPs. But aside from the mindset work (which I actually believe is fundamental to everything) there is the planning, goal setting, branding help (defining what you stand for, developing an identity and values that you run everything in your business by), PR support - there is just so much! I won't lie I'm in slight overwhelm by the content to work through but I know I have all the ingredients to plan for the next 5 years and beyond and I'm crystal clear on my goals and priorities for the next 12 months. Caroline helped break it all down into manageable chunks. And when she says she's available throughout the course, she really means that - email, phone support, she's there. She really knows her stuff - she is hugely intuitive and has a 6th sense for getting to the root of things.

Honestly, I can't believe the progress I've made in 8 weeks. I know without it I probably wouldn't have got to this stage for another year or two and certainly not with such a firm foundation and supply of materials and exercises to fall back on!
