What are the main challenges of being a young CEO?

I’d say the main challenges of being a first-time or young CEO is just second-guessing yourself on the big decisions. Like wondering “maybe I don’t know the real answer” and “maybe I’m kind of naive here” but we often know a lot more than we give ourselves credit for knowing. That’s something I definitely struggled with in my past and now I’m pretty confident with any decision I make.
