Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

Learn To Trust Your Gut In Business

In this quick episode, I’m pulling back the curtain on one of the hardest lessons I’ve learned as an entrepreneur.

It’s not having hard conversations.

Not making revenue projections.

Not keeping a tidy to-do list or a pretty project plan.

In this episode, I’m talking about trusting your gut as an entrepreneur. Which is a tall order. We all want to trust our gut… but it’s not always that simple.

Because every day, entrepreneurs…

→ Navigate fear

→ Bear responsibility for the success – or lack of success – in our biz

→ Feel the weight of the effects that our big and small decisions make on others 

→ And, if we’re being honest, try hard not to question our own ability

Right?

“Going with your gut” can get muddled and lost between ALL we’ve got going on.

But it’s also a non-negotiable in entrepreneurship.

So after 13 years of running my own online business, I’m sharing how I’ve learned to hone this instinct and stick to my guns…

…including one big mistake I made by hushing my inner nudges and going ahead with a decision anyways. 

So give this episode a listen and let my lessons learned be your lessons learned.

Cheers to you, friend, as we learn how to slow down, listen, and trust ourselves.

Here’s a glance at this episode...

  • [02:35] Should you trust your gut? 62% of top business execs let their gut lead the way and always trust it.
  • [05:25] There's a significant difference between being too picky and knowing in your gut that it's the wrong choice.
  • [07:20] Notice what your initial gut feeling is and then notice what happens next. Are you being too picky? Are you really feeling something that you need to pay attention to?
  • [10:32] After making a decision, start journaling. When doubt starts to creep back in, go back and read about why you made the decision in the first place.
  • [11:13] If you feel it in your bones and it doesn't work out as planned, it was still meant to be.
  • [13:25] Being in tune and having the ability to trust yourself puts you on a whole different level. Go with your gut!
