A top concern that women entrepreneurs have is being judged. What I have found is that we, as women, are our toughest critic. Most people want to either cheer us on or don’t really think of what we are doing at all. Let’s face it, people are busy or are thinking of themselves. The people that matter most will offer constructive feedback – those are your people. Listen to them and learn from them.
Here is how I have handled the not so nice critics, including myself, from my experience as a business owner.
Jane’s Tips Leap & Grow:
- Try not to take someone’s harsh remarks personally. I know their comments hurt, and people will be mean and cruel to spite you.
- People say mean things out of jealousy or fear for you. Shake it off, square your shoulders, reexamine your goals and get back out there.
- Are you taking care of yourself? Too many entrepreneurs are pushing themselves to exhaustion. Some good old-fashioned self-care like taking a half day off, a long bike ride, a massage or a play date with a friend will help put things in perspective and take the “ouch” out of the situation.
