The Courage to Launch: How to Overcome Fear and Start Your Own Business

8 May, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Courage to Launch: How to Overcome Fear and Start Your Own Business is brought to you by the Skyrocket Startup Coaching Meetup. This interactive session is to be facilitated by Matt Ainsworth, an experienced entrepreneur and professionally trained executive coach who has successfully launched and grown their own businesses while living in Tokyo. As an executive coach, Matt currently supports other founders in building their own successful ventures both abroad in Japan and locally in Australia.

During this workshop, Matt will draw from his personal experiences as an entrepreneur and their professional background as an executive coach to provide participants with practical guidance on overcoming common fears and obstacles that prevent people from starting their own businesses. They will also provide valuable insights into the importance of developing a growth mindset, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and creating a strong and clear vision.

It can also benefit existing founders who are struggling with imposter syndrome, embracing risk and finding it difficult to take the next step.

This workshop will be insightful, and interactive and allow participants to be creative and share their own experiences. Matt will incorporate activities such as small group discussions, coaching exercises, and a Q&A session to encourage participation and collaboration.

By the end of the workshop, participants will have gained the knowledge and confidence they need to take the next step towards launching their own businesses. They will feel empowered and equipped with the tools to overcome fear, take risks, and build successful businesses.

Whether you’re just starting out with a small side hustle or looking to launch a larger venture, The Courage to Launch workshop will provide you with the support, guidance and tools you need to overcome your fears and start building your dream business, led by an experienced entrepreneur and executive coach.
