Ghosts, ghouls and goblins — oh my! While children clad in Halloween costumes may fear witches and zombies, many Villa Park businesses are equally terrified of failure.

When we’re scared, it’s easy for fear of failure to paralyze us and we end up doing nothing. Instead of taking an all - or - nothing approach, break down what scares you into small, manageable parts.

Going step-by-step, you’re more likely to succeed, and each success will build your confidence.
