Managing a team is scary. Hiring an assistant is not.
Running a marathon is scary. A 5k today is not.
Leaving a salaried job is scary. Earning some money on the side is not.
Identifying the end-goal is important. It makes the baby-step seem easier. And if you start to worry about how you’re going to get to the end-goal, just identify the next baby step.
Because a few assistants, a few 5ks, and a couple grand on the side add up quickly.
