Why a Home Based Business ?
Mums are Biz and Buzzy juggling with jobs and family, which in some cases include raising children. Raising children by itself is a full time business.
Mums who wanted to stay home and raise their children so they can provide a better quality of life had to look for another stream of income from home.
For a lot of mums it is not an option, they want and need to provide a safer and a healthier home for their families.
And I hope to impart this Advisory to you all.
In order to understand the commitment and dedication the mothers provide for their family, one need to understand that the family structure and its environment within and outside is so important that it reflects so many factors of life such as:health, education, friendship, relationship, work, business and living life to one’s freedom and experience.
Without the experience of a good and a balanced family structure, the pain or unpleasant experiences inflicted on the individuals can and will affect one’s entire life.
Mothers naturally have the unconditional love and feelings for their children just like Mother Earth, who has provided for us.
In order to continue to provide for her family, most mothers operate their businesses from their home.
Keeping Schedules and Multi-tasking
I want to share some of the myths that one must be aware of when mothers are starting any home based business.
You need to schedule to keep your work from your house chores! If you think even for a moment this is a home based business and you can operate your business and look after the house chores at the same time, you are going to be BURNT OUT!
Believe me, when you are burnt out it is difficult to focus on your business.
Mothers are great at multi-tasking by nature and culturally expect them to be super mums.
This is another factor to be considered when mums multi-task. Multi-tasking has been the way to operate. Multi-tasking is a norm today, but the focus and effectiveness on our business or our family or our health has largely been compromised.
I am not here to discourage any mums from operating their home-based business; on the contrary I encourage each and everyone to think out of the 9 to 5 box.
The 9 to 5 security no longer exists in your business, but the fruit of your labor is yours to enjoy.
When was the last time you did not hear of someone you knew not getting laid off or is still looking for a job?
The care and attention you give to your business is like taking care of your children. You are always watching over them. Your nurturing is endless. Similarly, your business will thrive to your satisfaction and endless bliss. If you were working for someone, no matter how much you nurture and care, you might end up like a lot of people today in this economy – getting laid off.
Owning your business is also being responsible – for the ups and downs of the situation, instead of blaming others or the conditions, one needs to focus on solutions.
Sometimes things do not appear as it should and seem impossible and difficult. Remember to focus on the solutions.
We are energy beings, where we focus our energy that’s what we achieve.
Fault or mistakes does not exist. What we would have considered as a fault is altering our perception of something or someone that is being different then we would have liked it to be.
Mistakes are excuses for us not to move forward. We might for whatever reasons be fearful of someone, something, failure or success or the unknown and are reluctant to take the steps to make changes.
No matter how we react, whether we are reluctant or un-corporative the changes always occur. We are not allowed to resist change. Changes are part of life the cycle that makes us who we are. When we resist changes we deprive ourselves the opportunity to grow and our personal growth gets hindered.
When mums decide to operate their home based business they grant themselves the opportunity to grow not only personally but also professionally.
Home-based business is a life long journey; there is no turning back but only working forward to greater success. Success comes with work, dedication, focus and a great desire. What didn’t seem to work perhaps requires you to open another door other times it simply requires you to be persistent.
To achieve anything or success in life one must desire it. The desire must be passionate. Usually one will have greater chance of success when one has a desire and a want. The wants and the desires must be strong and emotionally charged.
Mindset holds the key that opens the secret to achieving success. Mums, a positive mindset is important. Negative mindsets sabotage your success before you get the chance to achieve them. The mindset is like a blue print. If the blue print is misinformed, the result can be far away from your desire.
Mums, some days the business can overwhelm you but remember to take a breather, maybe a random walk, a walk to the mall or a movie or even simply listening to some music. Do whatever it takes to break that tired and stagnant energy.
Open-mindedness and courage
These 2 terms play a great role in helping us succeed beyond our dreams.
Open-mindedness gives us to learn, to adapt, to practice and to implement tools and systems from those that have walked the trail of tears. Learning from the experts will save you great deal of time and stress. The period to achieving your success is shortened, giving you more time to experience success. Be willing to learn and be coach able, often what we have learnt and developed in our lives does not work for our business.
Courage is the will to get up and go regardless of the fears you may have. Being courageous does not mean being fearless. To the contrary, being frightened and yet forging ahead is courage. There will be many things, events and people who will get in your way. But the biggest creator of obstacles or a clear road is YOURSELF.
The rewards are endless and priceless. You learn and develop so much more that no amount of preparation from elementary, high schools, college or university would ever prepare you a real life experience that you can actually feel, touch and be.
Everything I share with you is my personal experience, and I encourage you to visit and read as much as possible (My blog used to be at http://rebeccacheng.com) as you will have the opportunity to learn and share your experience as well.
Great Journey Together!
