How nervous/stressed are you before you launch a new product/concept?

I will be honest, in the next week we will go online with our new service (A web builder). And it is not yet going like I want. I'm stressed, sleep 2 hours a night and I'm really an unpleasant person to my co-workers at the moment.
Of course there are a million ways to relax, but it just not works at the moment.

This is the biggest thing I ever made, it did cost me years of programming and I even lost count how much money we invested in it. Beside that 10 people work for me, so I feed them and their families.

SO YES, I'M FREAKING OUT!

Any tips?

    Woah I hope it goes well. I've not done anything on that level. Just thinking about launching my book makes me nervous and wake up in the night. I always find that cycling or running helps though. Or just any exercise. It really sorts the brain out when it's anxious and stressed

    Hello Allegandro. I understand you perfectly, it is a situation that I lived. Follow your heart and use your head and you will find your way. Made a simple question when you are in this situation: "I worry if something changes?" The success provides a process consisting of these situations so you're on your way!

    If you are really stressed out, I would take a car and just take a few hours off. Go sit in the woods, barbecue with your team, and just relax. I am sure that this will do you really good.

      Thanks, this Sunday we will go with the complete team into to forest, do some paintball and have a BBQ. Great Idea.

      Until that time.... I just need to try to relax.

    If you hav confidence that what you're doing can help people live a better life then do not think anything else but your targets amd launch it. It will improve with the experience you gain day by day. if you hav your targets and dreams in your mind there will be no place for nervousness, anxiety and any other negativ feelings. Keep your dreams in your mind always and you will automatically get ideas that will take you towards your dreams. Just do it, act. And yes, be polite with your co-workers. Wish you luck!

    Allegandro bro. I also know how it feels. I just wanna say, Don't get your hopes too high. Because How much awesome your service are, there will be people who will dislike it. They will also try to put you down. But trust me, there will also be people who will like it and will surely help you. You don't have to worry about. All you have to do is to build trust among readers and money will flow.

    Just launch it, it will never be "perfect" especially in your mind. There will be bugs but that's what feedback and updates are for.

    Like everyone said go out and do something active to keep your mind off it for a while, think positive, it will work out. Stressful, yes, but also very exciting to launch something new.

    Good Luck

    Yes it happens. Happens more when you are launching your first product/service. Stress is lesser when you are frequently doing this type of work. Good luck for your launch :-)

    First of all i hope the product launch goes great. For me whenever i create and launch a new product, i don't get excited about it at all. It's just another way to make more money, and prolong/enjoy this lustful lifestyle that i have. (Lol i'm kidding...kind of).

    You'll be fine. Are you feeling anxious because the people around you and in your circles look up to you highly, and expect "big/great" things from you?

    My best tip -- either go to a good massage parlor or get a high-end back massage chair. You'll thank me later.

      It's perfectly normal to be stressed or nervous over a new launch. that's because you're stepping out of your comfort zone and stepping into the unknown. It's the best feeling ever, that let's you know you're on the right track. Outsource some help if needed, get plenty of rest, cover all your bases and don't let the "What if's" take over.

      You're actually training yourself to be a Do'er instead of a procrastinator, it only get's easier from here once you cross this barrier, you'll start to get used to it. Try not to overdue on coffee, it will only make you more jittery, nervous and cause more anxiety. It's better to launch and learn from experience, than to let fear take over and never launch. Congratulations on your launch, and I wish you the best

    Yesterday we had a paintball/BBQ in the forest.
    I got shot in the face from 1 meter, but maybe I deserved it.
    Most of all it was a great day and a lot of stress went away.

    One week left till release of our product.
