Being an entrepreneur is an exciting and demanding career choice, and for most, it seems easy enough to know that you need to generate money for your business to survive. But it’s not always that easy for many. Many entrepreneurs jump into business without considering the mind-limiting beliefs that they carry.  Quite often, you are not aware of the beliefs that hold you back until you are deep into the sales activities of the business.
