Building a business (or 3) has been one of the most fun and fulfilling things I’ve ever done. Sometimes it’s hard and other times so frustrating, but mostly it’s a blast!
I’ve had so many moms tell me that they’re looking for something more in their life but don’t even know where to start. What would they do? And then, once they do start, how do they balance motherhood and business?
I totally get it.
It’s a lot to think about. But I’ve spent the past 7+ years working on one business or another and I’ve figured out a lot of the logistics.
Before you do anything else, you’ll need to choose something you want to work on. This can often be the hardest part! There are so many amazing things in the world. But just remember, this doesn’t have to create world peace, it just has to be fun.
You’ll need to figure out where to get the time. This usually means leaving some housework undone and/or delegating some childcare. Remember, you have all the time you need.
You’re going to have to come up with a business structure that will give your future customers or clients a way to access your talents or knowledge.
You’ll need a way to make that business structure bring in money. That’s it!
If it seems like a lot, then just start with your why.
I’ve realized that the main goal of my business ventures is to bring me joy. The working mom side of my life also helps me make friends, learn new things and bring in money, but most importantly, it makes me happy!
The coolest part is, you get to decide what you want from your business. If you mostly need extra income, that’s a great goal. If you really just need time away from your kids, that’s reason enough. Or if you’re dying to spend some time on your personal development, that’s fantastic.
It doesn’t really matter what you choose, but I’ve found that increasing joy is always a great motivator.
Ready to get started? Yay!
