We all have enough on the daily to-do lists without adding more. This is why we're tempted to let possibilities in our lives go; it's too much trouble or maybe it seems like there is too little to be gained. Here are three big reasons why you should take chances whenever they come up.
"Sometimes you never realize the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr. Seuss.
It may sound cliché but the saying is so applicable, true, and effective that one cannot ignore it. Being an entrepreneur today, one is compelled to be innovative and unique, but taking advice from what already works, or from someone who already knows the answers to the questions we have, is a good business strategy.
While there are elements of life that are undoubtedly out of our control, we increasingly understand that our reactions to life events, our general mindsets, and our intentional habits can lead to more desirable outcomes, in business, as well as in our personal lives. What we envision as possible depends, largely, on perspective. What can we do to harness the power of possibility in our lives?
The thought of starting your own business is both exciting and a little nerve-wracking. You've been mulling over an idea and even created a vision board for your business. But how do you know if your idea can turn into a thriving business?
Do you have a new business idea you've been chewing on?
It can be hard to tell if you should move forward with your new idea. Life is already busy and you only have so much time for your family but what if your idea brings freedom and income to your household?
Sometimes our minds fill with lies such as "what if this doesn't work out" or "what if I'm not good enough". Taking a step of action on a new business idea can be scary. You can only achieve your dreams when you silence the lies and begin to walk forward. Instead of living in regret, here are reasons you need to take action today.
We all wish there was a magic button we could push to give us an extra twelve (or more) hours each day, but until that button appears, we're on our own when it comes to balancing life as mom entrepreneurs.
While there's no magic button, there are a few things you can start doing right now that will give you instant balancing powers and help you better manage your time?
One of the biggest obstacles we all face is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, and fear of success are all valid and real struggles we face every day. If we want to feel successful, it is imperative that we not only learn to face our fears, but that we learn to push ourselves past them.
It's hard balancing the challenges and priorities of being a mother with those of a successful entrepreneur. Yet, as the spring nears, now is a great time to take stock of your career and household and "lean-in" so that you can achieve the necessary balance to excel both as a mom and as a fierce business owner.
Taking the Next Steps in Exploring Your Business Idea
You have a business idea. Perhaps it's an innovation in your current field. Maybe it's informed by a pastime or hobby. It could even be a nagging feeling that it's finally time to consider working for yourself. However it arrived, an inspirational moment is exhilarating, but it can also be intimidating. What should you next?
