Fearless: When Fear of the Unknown Gets In the Way

Fearless: When Fear of the Unknown Gets In the Way

What does it mean to be fearless? I’m a thesaurus girl, so looking up synonyms is a regular thing for me To be fearless is to be brave, unafraid, dauntless, and audacious, just to name a few.

Having the reassurance that God has my back has always been able to uplift my spirits and get me to the place I need to be.

I once heard a successful business owner say…”if you’re not tracking everything you put out there, you’re doing business like an amateur.” Some of us are still in the trenches with our business for sure, but success follows success and that includes getting to know the people who are interested in what you have to offer.
