Why A Home Based Business
You may be one of the many, many individuals looking to discover a way to increase your income. Or, you may be a parent feeling the emotional burden of having to choose between work and family. Maybe you can simply relate to the fact that you are not living to your fullest potential, or walking in your purpose.
Whatever your situation is, you know there is something more.
You are tired of struggling.
You are sick of stressing.
You are ready to live the life you deserve.
You have kept your options open, and have decided to explore the idea of a home based business. I can remember being in this exact same space, and making my decision to say YES, to creating a new life for myself and my family.
It’s been my observation…
NON-entrepreneurs think entrepreneurship is some how easier than traditional work. They see us on Facebook often, watch us ‘brag’ about how happy we are, and how much we love our lifestyle. For a lot of us, that’s just our truth.
We also know, that just because we live our passions and choose to pursue our purpose in life…doesn’t mean the road isn’t always smooth.
In fact, entrepreneurship forces us to remain on our toes…always strategizing, always masterminding, always brainstorming, always thinking, always creating.
We don’t shut down or turn off at 5pm.
How many times have you questioned or wondered why you were experiencing the things that were going on in your life? It may feel like turmoil, it could be negativity, or any combination of challenges.
What you have been doing up until this point may seem like it is no longer serving the original purpose. You may be feeling a shift in direction…but for one reason or other, you are hesitant. Perhaps even resistant all together.
During the first half of this year, that is exactly what I was going through. It was my season for transition. Even though I didn’t quite recognize it at first, it became clear after I gave myself some time to process.
There is always one thing that holds entrepreneurs back from experiencing success.
Do you know what it is?
It’s not lack of knowledge.
It’s not lack of time.
It’s not lack of money.
In fact, as entrepreneurs, we all experience a time on our journey where we ‘lack’ one of these things. Life gets in our way, things happen and we sometimes get stuck where we are.
We start to allow our current situation to alter our thinking and distract us from what we need to be doing in our business. I know because I have been down this road more than once.
When some people hear the words, Network Marketing, they automatically get a bad idea in their mind. Most of the time it is because they are greatly missed informed, or have heard negative stories from those who’ve had little, or no success.
The truth is, starting a network marketing business has great benefits, especially because it doesn’t require a college education or tons of experience.
In fact, I came across an interview by, Jack Canfield (affectionately known as “America’s #1 Success Coach,” and the originator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series.)
In the video, He shares his views on the value of the industry as a whole.
Entrepreneurs are known to spend countless nights and endless hours, up working on building their dream. Many of us know what it’s like to be so involved, that we can go almost an entire day before we realize we haven’t eaten a single thing.
You may laugh as you read this because you know it’s true.
But reality is, after a few months of this…a lot of entrepreneurs notice a few extra pounds from lack of exercise and even some new aches and pains from the amount of time sitting all day at a computer.
It can seem hard to make time for our health even though it is vital to our long term success.

Is to be a source of inspiration and a help to women and moms who have a passion for entrepreneurship. I’m dedicated to showing women how to get their time back, earn a lucrative monthly income in their spare time, and be able to leave the 9 to 5 world…forever.
In order to do that, I’m making a huge sacrifice of time over the next 30 days so that I can work exclusively with those who are serious and ready to do what it takes to have a life of freedom.
Have 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.
If 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.
