Home Based Business Women Success Stories

Home Based Business Work At HomeHave you noticed how more and more women are starting home based businesses?

Even in my own network circle, I’ve seen a shift in the number of moms who have decided to go full-time, working from home in 2014 alone.

To be honest, I love it!

It made me want to do a little research just to see for myself, how much the industry is growing.

Here is what I discovered…

  • According to the Direct Selling Association, in 2013, the direct selling sales force increased 5.7% to 16.8 million in 2013, a record high. Get this, even during the height of the recession, the home based industry experienced a surge of new direct selling independent representatives.

Changing The Game For Aspiring Mom Entrepreneurs

Aspiring Mom EntrepreneursIf you are an aspiring mom entrepreneur, I’m sure you will relate to this post.

Most entrepreneurs run into challenges when starting a business, but moms have a completely different set of challenges the average entrepreneur may not experience.

It doesn’t matter if you are married or single…adding entrepreneurship to the mix of motherhood is downright overwhelming for many moms.

This is something I know firsthand being a work at home mom of seven – six still at home.

  • If you have infants or toddlers, there is no such thing as, “sticking to a schedule.” They demand your time around the clock. The trick is figuring out how to occupy their time so you can fit tasks in, in between.

Network Marketing: Does Slow And Steady Win The Race?

slow and steadySome people start a home based network marketing business and choose the slow and steady path. Yet others dive in and go hard and fast…which is better?

Well, in my opinion it’s a matter of preference.

I’ve been on both sides of the fence and can say, in my experience, slow and steady will win the race…eventually. But the question is, why wait?

Most people I talk to who are ready to start in network marketing want to start making money quickly. However, the majority of them start pretty slow.

Why is that?

Perhaps they lack the confidence to go full force.

Maybe they aren’t ready because they haven’t been trained.

How To Know If You Are Unemployable

Are you unemployable?WARNING: This post is not for everyone. So, if you are closed minded, limited in your thinking, and don’t get why someone would want to relinquish their “security” in a regular job, I invite you to click away now…

I’m sharing my beliefs and thoughts on when a job is not an option for those of us with the entrepreneurial spirit.

I can tell you, I’ve had numerous JOBS and could never stay put in one for very long (the longest was a miserable 6 months). I did everything from being an in-home daycare provider, nursing assistant/home health care, to working in retail, housekeeping, administrative assistant, and customer service.

When Entrepreneurs Get Asked, “What Do You Do?”

What Do You Do?I chat regularly with entrepreneurs who have multiple “things” going on, or more than one stream of income. I also hear, how for the most part, they are  sometimes unsure about what to say when people ask that one question….“so, what do you do?”

Let me first say this, when people ask me what I do, it’s hard for me to give a formal, normal title to sum it up. I could say – Marketing Consultant…but thing is, I do so much more than that. Truth be told, I DO quite a few things…when I wrap it all up, I say…I help people create Life Freedom!

Because technically, that’s what I do!

What Busy Entrepreneurs Focus On To Get Things Done

busy entrepreneurWhen most people think of an entrepreneur, they automatically assume that we don’t do much with our days. Unlike the rest of society, we supposedly have lots of extra time on our hands because we don’t have to work so hard…

YEA, RIGHT!

I actually believe we work harder than everyone else because we have to manage EVERY role in our business, not just show up and perform one particular task (that’s a post for another day.)

Despite what regular folks think, entrepreneurs are actually, very busy people. Most are building their dream alongside a day job, going to school, raising a family and the list goes on.

There is a saying I hear a lot. “Busy people know how to get things done.”
