Is working yourself into the ground every day really the best way to give your children a better future?
I know what you’re thinking: Bills have to be paid, school fees have to be settled, and money has to be found for year-end play costumes and new sports shoes. Not to mention those orthodontic braces that definitely won’t pay for themselves. I get that, believe me. Every Mom wants to do the best for her children and give them the best possible lifestyle – it’s a natural part of being a parent!
But here’s the thing:
We all feel so darn guilty about it.
We hate that we’re always rushing off to meetings or sitting in commuter traffic. We can’t bear to look our children in the eye when they realize we’re not going to make the gala or the prize-giving. And we hate having to tell them that Suzie’s Mom will be picking them up from school today. Again.
Yes, it makes us feel good when the money we earn means we can treat them to a weekend at the beach, or take them to the movies. But these outings are few and far between. And at the end of the day, they don’t really make up for everything else we’ve missed out on because we were working.
Now, I’m honestly not trying to add to the guilt here! Far from it, in fact. What I do want to do, however, is show you that there is another way.
Be The Change You Want To See
He knew a thing or two, did Ghandi! I know that thinking about change can be a little scary. In fact, you probably haven’t really even thought much about it at all until you started reading this! At least, I hope you’re starting to think about it. Because I truly believe that if you’re really honest with yourself, you know you can’t keep on doing what you’re doing. Something’s got to give, and if you’re not careful, that something will be you. Or, worse, your kids.
So, let’s take a look at options for a moment. You could look for another job. Perhaps one with a shorter commute, or a bigger salary? Or maybe something half-day that would give you much more time with your children? Definitely an option, but, is it going to work for you? Do you even have the time to start looking for something new? And it’s not as though jobs are particularly thick on the ground at the moment. At the end of the day, you’d really only be trading one set of problems for another – and you’d still just be working to make someone else rich.
So, what other choice is there?
You could start you own business! No, you really could! I know you may not think you have the right skills or business know-how, but please believe me when I tell you this:
You could start you own business! No, you really could!
It doesn’t matter! You can learn!
Think about it: You weren’t born knowing everything you know today. You learned it all. You probably didn’t know much about raising kids either when you had your first one, and yet look at you now! Just like you learned all that stuff, you can learn what you need to know to start your own business.
I know this because I can teach you. I’ve taught hundreds of people just like you the skills they need to run their own highly successful businesses, and you can listen to their stories here (insert link) if you like.
But I digress.
The Best Time To Start Is Right Now!
Of course, I’m not the only person who can teach you how to run your own business. There are all sorts of other ways too. You can read books or watch a few online videos. Maybe even investigate getting a qualification via an online learning platform. But where do you start? How do you even go about finding ideas for the right business to start?
Because let’s face it – over 80% of new businesses fail within the first three years. So how do you avoid becoming part of this frightening statistic? You choose a business with virtually unlimited growth potential! One that makes money for you and your clients. And of course, clients who make money doing what you tell them to will happily keep on paying you!
I know this is all quite a lot to take in at the moment. When you started reading this blog, you probably weren’t even thinking about changing jobs, and now we’re talking about you starting a whole new business! I get that it’s a bit overwhelming. So let’s dial things back a notch for a second.
