I want to start a business but I talk myself out of it every time. I know there's things to think about like a need/want and demand....expenses, and if my talent can compete. If I did fail, it wouldn't be a big deal as the initial investment is close to nothing.....but there's something holding me back....maybe self esteem? Lack of support? I don't know why I need to rely on others reassurance of what I'm doing and how I do things.
Will someone give me some insight and/or direction?
Just so you know, the business I'd like to start is floral services out of my home. My mom has arranged flowers for weddings, funerals, proms, and special occasions/holidays all of her life because her mother did it, and all my life i've helped my mother. I have talent, but I feel like I depend on others to tell me I have talent for me to believe in myself.

The truth is, it will kill your business if you fear, there is a universal law called" the law of attraction" if you give your time to what you fear, it will come true.
Time will not cure it by starting the business, you can cure it with your thoughts. I have actually started blogging about how to do that. There is also a service by a very successful who helps people like you, http://www.youareaceo.com/success4me
Things dont just go away. Yu have to work at them and set your own success up.
Wishing you the best.

I won't lie to you, starting a new business is scary and it poses many challenges. You need to work hard, very hard. My best advice to you is to educate yourself. Read as much as you can about the floral business, about running a business, about marketing then set up your business. Once it's up and running, start networking and advertising and never stop working.
If you don't have the support you need offline, I invite you to join my Cafemom business networking and support group Mommy Movers & Shakers.
