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.

I am a: Mom Entrepreneur
Tell us about yourself: I’m a mother, wife, caregiver. I also work full-time in addition to running my business. I LOVE people and I base my business on having STELLAR Customer Service.
Tell us about your business: In February 2007, I launched Lucretia’s Body Oils and Sprays. It was that day that I decided to take a leap of faith and make my longtime dream of owning my own business a reality. I started my company with just $200.
September is going to be a pivotal month for growth and will require a higher level of focus and attentiveness…it is time to shift into greater position.
Are you ready to Step Into Your 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.
Some 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.

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.
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!
