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!

Learning From Your Setbacks

Learning From Your SetbacksHow many setbacks have you experienced on your entrepreneurial journey?

My guess is many…

The truth of the matter is, we all have them. Each of us goes through hard times in our lives, which affects our business.

Believe me, I’m no stranger to setbacks.

I think sometimes we have a tendency to look at other people, and only see the ‘good’. We see their success, we see their growth, we see their happiness and see them living a freedom lifestyle…but, rarely do we see the struggle that came before all of that.

We don’t know the back story of where they really came from.

Branding And Marketing Yourself Online

So many people talk about what they want…Happy Woman

They want financial freedom.

They want their time back.

They want to quit their dead end job.

They want to be home to raise their kids.

They want to live a life free of stress, debt and overwhelm.

What happens next?

They turn to the internet looking for answers on how to achieve the new American Dream…Internet Entrepreneurship. They ‘catch the vision’ as they stumble upon the top leaders in the industry and big time gurus. Those 6 and 7 figure internet income earners.

BINGO…JACKPOT!!!

You start to think, “if I just do what they do…”

Is Network Marketing For You?

Women in Network Marketing IndustryYou’ve heard it before, Network Marketing, Direct Sales, MLM, Opportunity…Scam, Pyramid Scheme. Just a few common names used to define a home based business opportunity by individuals and skeptics alike.

There happens to be a great misconception surrounding the Network Marketing industry. Primarily due to lack of understanding, or even pure ignorance. However, despite what you may have heard, Network Marketing is in fact, a legitimate home based business model.

The MLM Scam…

Now, don’t get me wrong, there are some companies out there passing themselves off as reputable which gives the other solid companies, a bad reputation. The easiest way to recognize a true pyramid scheme is not based on the triangular structure, but if there is an actual product or service being sold.

Work At Home Mom Success In Six Simple Steps

Tamyka Washington - Work At Home Mom of SevenWhat’s the one question a work at home mom wants to know from me?

“How do you manage being a work at home mom with seven kids?”

The answer is really simple…I just do it! Of course, that is not what people really want to hear…they want to know exactly what it is I do.

I have a BIG reason why I do what I do. It is the main reason I made the decision to truly pursue entrepreneurship back in June 2002.

That fact is, I’m a REAL mom and my reason WHY is my 7 children! I can’t see myself being anything other than a full-time mom to them.
