Entrepreneur Network partner and advice guru Jennifer Hacker of the website Toast Meets Jam meets a lot of young entrepreneurs seeking advice, and she says that one of the biggest obstacles that females in particular talk about is self-doubt.

"One of the biggest fears I hear from young women entrepreneurs is that they feel like they have no idea what they're doing, and they're afraid that somebody's going to call them out for it," she says.

In this video, Hacker shares five tips to stop self-doubt keeping you from starting your business. Things like finding your support system -- people who are going to help you grow your business -- and telling people about your business, even thought you might be afraid of negative feedback, will help you face those fears and get yourself moving toward success.
