I need more hours in the day!! I might be crazy for starting my own business. As a mom with a full-time schedule, there is little down-time. My main worry is being able to afford a great life for my kids, while actually spending quality time with them. When I thought about launching a blog, I had a full-time job. Obviously, maintaining steady income through any transition is a must. I did not have kids… Well, actually shortly after my launch, I found out I was pregnant. My wonderful and very supportive husband was editing my book sitting next to be in the hospital trying to make use of every minute until our son arrived. While I was posting and following up with clients. Totally nuts!
Since his birth, I’ve learned a lot, including a bit better time management. In fact, in 4 short years, I have started 2 businesses, written 1 book, and spent tons of time with my family. The best part, I did it all while keeping my full-time job. You can too!
Launch your blog or business within 30 days [ad], while keeping your full-time job. [Link] Plus, your sanity. The goal is to maintain a steady stream of income with the intent to quit as soon as your self-owned lovely new business can support you. Why – to reduce risk! You can project your initial earnings with lots of research, but there is no guarantee. It is better to take a more conservative approach. I was able to quit my full-time job within 14 months. That might seem like a lot, but I was out on maternity leave the same year. I took the time off, thoroughly embracing our new addition as a new mom. Plus, I spent time to launch my book [link/ad].
Now I enjoy the best of life! I work from home on my very own business surrounded by my family. Often my son is running in and out of the office, screaming “MOM”. He thinks it is hilarious and can open doors also to his amazement. This was slightly embarrassing initially. I realize now it is a treat and my clients think it is adorable. While launching my blog that turned into a successful business, I embraced it all.
How did I do it? The trick is to focus on revenue, i.e. making money. Eliminate all the tasks that do not increase your bottom-line, at least initially. It’s easy to keep a business going that makes profit. In my 30 days to start a business, you only need 1 hour a day to get going quickly. Your attention should be on optimization, not fumbling through startup. This gives you the time to work during the day, cook dinner, and spend a few hours with the kids each day. That’s right each day!
