I've made a major decision.
2017 was an important year for me. It was the year I learned CONSISTENCY. You absolutely cannot run a successful business or hope to make any amount of money if you aren't consistent. It just doesn't work.
And you can't cheat consistency either. You can't do a bunch of stuff “for the week” and have it count. Not really. Some things, yes. But mostly — nope. Businesses require daily care and feeding.
Especially home businesses.
When I started this blog, my inclination was that this was going to be a record of my journey in the home-based business space. I wasn't consistent. And then I had some training that suggested I change the format of my blog. Then, I tried to cheat consistency. Still didn't work.
Lo and behold, when I finally got serious and started to do the work, I started to get some traction, build a team and make money! Hallelujah!
And then I realized something else. I am not the only one who struggles to make a home-based business work.
Maybe its you – dear reader. Do you start and stop the business? Does life get in the way? Big project at work? Feeling guilty about spending time with your children and other loved ones? Feeling like you can't do it all?
Funny thing is, this has also happened to top earners (we are talking 6 figures and up). I've heard the struggle stories. They are relatable. To a point.
I found myself giving excuses.
“Yeah, but they had a supportive spouse”
“Yeah, but they got in at the right time”
“Yeah, but they didn't have a long commute”
I was WRONG. Yup. Wrong.
Sure, every story is different, but part of the problem with growing your own business – being your own boss – master of your own destiny — is that you think that your specific set of problem are unique and therefore success is difficult if not unattainable.
It's not true.
The only way I think that I can really help you in ways that others may have not been able to is to show you my journey.
Come along with me. Follow me as I tell you my day to day struggles, failures and successes. Whatever I learn along the way, I'm passing it on.
Why am I doing this? I'm really putting myself out there!
Well, for one, I have decided 2018 is the year of no excuses. Blogging my journey will give me accountability. Secondly — I want to prove to you that yes, YOU CAN do this!
I am in my 40s. I have 2 little girls, an adult daughter, a husband, and a cat. I have a full-time job in I.T. that is demanding and frequently requires over 40 hours of work per week. I commute 5 hours a day (no, that is NOT a typo).
And I have this business.
So come with me while I chronicle what I'm doing on a daily basis. How I'm managing it all. I promise to be honest and confess all my failures and my successes. Every single one of them.
My prayer is that I help someone.
Ready? Buckle up. As soon as I press publish, I'm committed.
To Your Victory,
