In this article I will share the nuances of social anxiety, how it affects business and how to overcome it.
There are statistics that say as many as every third person can experience a vicious cycle of anticipation throughs and overthinking that is eating up so much energy, sidetracks our efforts, and deceives us into questioning ourselves and our work for periods of longer than 6 months.

There are no short cuts to satisfaction with what you do and making money at the same time. Yet, there is an effective process to start with.
Tackling social anxiety can be started with a highly effective, science backed three-step process:
