When we began our new family business 4 short months ago we knew it was going to be an exciting venture. I shared with you back then 5 reasons why our family was excited! But, we had no idea how exciting! In 10 days, Lord willing we are hitting a BIG rank and we are more convinced than ever that this is going to be a blessing to so many Christian families across the world. I love connecting with believers globally and how we are truly in the world changing business.
We live in an age where we can be mompreneurs and still be with our little ones at home. With the internet we can have thriving home businesses like the Proverbs 31 woman right on our laptops. But our time is limited so we need a business that will still let us focus on our homes. When I was being mentored the other day by the top #41 earner in the world, I was able to rock my sick baby and be there for him, cuddling him and loving on him.
To mentor other mamas, you know that I started a mompreneur page on Facebook. Anyone in any business can glean from all that I am learning from these high level mentors. I’d love to see you over there…
But, here’s the thing. With the rise of the online mompreneur there are many challenges. So here are a few things I have learned are critical in choosing how to earn an income from home. If you have one but not all of these, you are at a disadvantage. I also wrote a little about this in my post 5 things to look for in a home business.
~YOU need to be able to get behind and be passionate about what you are doing. What is right for one person may not be right for another mama.
~What are you mentors like? Training is critical, generic training and mentorship doesn’t go far in this day and age. Having successful mentors that can walk you through step by step is a non-negotiable as far as I am concerned.
~Is the system simple? In past companies I had to be an expert in all the different products, and there was a lot of followup with people, a lot of answering of questions. Now I share a video and can focus on the needs of my home! NEVER have I seen anything simpler.
~Is there competition? There are WONDERFUL companies out there (my previous company is one of them!) But, there are so many high quality companies similar that the competition is stiff.
~Is there duplication? This was my frustration previously was that I was working hard and not duplicating. As a busy mama we have to leverage our time and be able to use it wisely. I was able to share in an interview how and why this is a business even a large family mama has time for.
I want to encourage all of you that you can have a thriving home business–there are so many options out there, but navigating the best one for you can be tricky. I’d love to show you more about what we are doing and mentor you!
