Your dream business is possible!
There was a point in my life where I was working a full-time “JOB”, running my online coaching business, and also giving my best shot at the whole wife and mom thing. It became pretty obvious to me very quickly that my life was complete chaos. I started to wonder what it might be like to be able to leave my job. I let my current state of chaos fuel my fire.
I created this amazing vision of freedom. I allowed myself to dream daily of what it would be like to truly live life by design. I journaled about my ideal day, pictured it, and experienced it in my mind over and over again. Little did I know at the time, I would be living this ideal day just one year later.
I knew that desire alone was NOT going to get me to where I needed to be. The ONLY way that I would be able to create change in my life would be to take massive action. This meant sifting through the chaos to figure out EXACTLY how to run my online coaching business effectively while working my full-time job.
Was it always easy? Heck to the NO! Was it worth it? Yes!!!
Here is what I did and what I would recommend to mompreneurs wanting to leave their 9-5.
- Become laser focused on your vision! Daydream, journal about your vision, blog about it, create a vision board, do visualization exercises, whatever it is that resonates with your heart.
- Create a plan. You are going to have to be very clear about how you are going to make your vision a reality. Maybe you have already launched your business and are ready to rock. Perhaps you are still figuring out “what you want to be when you grow up”. Either way is okay! You simply start where you are at and GO! Start with making sure that you are following your heart and that your business or idea truly lights you up and aligns with your PURPOSE. True success takes place when passion meets purpose. Reverse engineer your master plan starting with the impact that you want to make on the world. If you are in this only for the money, you will fail! Your focus should ALWAYS be adding value to the lives of others by sharing your story, knowledge, skills, tools, and by being authentically YOU!
- Do not take this journey alone. Find your tribe! Meaning find a group of heart-centered individuals that GET you! You’ll be able to build relationships with like-minded individuals that you can learn from and grow with. Accountability partners are great! Or, if you feel like you are ready to take your life and business to the next level, you can hire a coach to help you stay focused, keep your mindset right, and teach you new strategies to up level. My business was at a complete standstill before I hired my first coach this year. The experience was so fantastic and eye-opening for me that I decided to pay it forward by personally coaching women on a one-on-one basis each month.
- Master your mindset! This is the number one key to success as a mompreneur. You are going to experience setbacks! This is a GIVEN! There are going to be times when you feel like quitting! If you are not proactive about establishing and maintaining a positive mindset, you will fall! You will get in a funk, attract more negativity to your life by your thoughts and lack of action, and fail. This is real talk! If there is one business building activity that should be a non-negotiable during your crazy day, it is MINDSET WORK! This means reading personal development books and engaging in activities that keep your vibration high. You are here to shine your light on the world! Your light shines when your energy is high. Remember that your vibe attracts your tribe.
I hope these tips were helpful! As always, REPEAT AFTER ME!
