Considering becoming your own boss in 2017?
You can make as much or more as your income right now and you can build it up so that when you do make the leap, you aren’t stressed wondering how you will pay your bills. You can make more money building your own business and be in charge of your own raises. You can start building your own goals instead of working on someone else’s goals every day when you go to your day job. You don’t have to wait for your boss’s approval to make a change.
You don’t need a ton of money to get started and you have these two trends of global impact and freedom opening up the opportunities for you. Now I’m sure you’ll agree, trying to start a successful business that matches your purpose and makes a difference, isn’t always as simple as people sometimes make it seem.
Here’s the thing. Entrepreneurship is HARD, right? Becoming your own boss is not easy.
And it’s so easy to get distracted by the pretty photos on Facebook where it looks like entrepreneurs fly to Paris last minute, drink champagne in Italy and live a luxurious laptop lifestyle from the beach. They make it look so easy so why is it so hard for us!
I am often hustling in my bedroom in a messy house with my daughter running around and dishes piled in the sink. So, I decided to create a movement around the REAL experiences of starting a business. The truth is, entrepreneurship comes with a lot of challenges.
The Doubts and Fears of Becoming Your Own Boss
You probably have heard that if you go the entrepreneur route you will you never find benefits or live without the security of a paycheck and how the heck will you have enough money to support your family.
I get it, my husband and I quit our jobs within three months of each other and we had a 6-month-old daughter. We had to make the leap and figure all this stuff out too. And then, of course, the fears of what will people think! Some family members were not in support of both of us quitting our jobs. They said, “How can you do this. What if the internet breaks!”
One of my regrets is that I didn’t have a solid business plan that I could show him when I quit. I mean it was in my head and I knew I was going to succeed, but a business plan to show him would have been helpful which is what I’ll teach you in this video series.
Maybe you’re just thinking about becoming your own boss or maybe you’re already a business owner but you want to increase your profits or utilize more online marketing tools to expand your reach and income. Either way, you’re in the right place because after The Freedom Workshop (we start December 29th! Sign up here.) you’ll know if you have a profitable business idea or not and what steps to take next.
Plus, later on in the Freedom Workshop training series, I am going to walk you through the things you need to know to build a successful business with limited time. And do it in a way that doesn’t create overwhelm and stress you out. And, most importantly, it gives you the lifestyle you want. Regardless of if you are just starting out or you already have a business but it just isn’t getting the growth that you want it to have and you know you need a change. This training series will set you up for tremendous success. I’m going to demystify the process of starting a business which is going to save you a lot of time, a lot of money and a lot of frustration.
What I Noticed About Women Who Wanted To Become Entrepreneurs
I developed this framework for building a business on the side of your day job because I saw so many women who wanted to be their own boss, work from home and turn their passion into a paycheck. They had so much talent and skill and I knew they could help millions of women with their businesses, I could envision it, but they were getting completely sidetracked and scared so they just did nothing and stayed in their jobs.
For example, I saw women who wanted to start a business who were treating it more like a fun hobby, they were trying to grow their social media accounts and get a bunch of followers online before they knew who their ideal clients were, what those clients actually wanted and what they were even going to sell. Not only that but they didn’t know what business they should even start. The worst part was that they didn’t believe in themselves and their business idea and were scared to put themselves out there. They got a few clients here and there but nothing that could ever support them full-time.
Then I saw women who already had businesses trying to get more steady streams of cash on a monthly basis struggling because they didn’t have a profitable business model in place and they were scared to make a change even though their business didn’t fit their passions and desires anymore. And not only that it’s stressful when you run a business that sucks up all your time. These women started a business to have more time with their families but now had to run the business so they had little time with their families.
I could go on, but I knew that people needed clarity – because in full transparency, that was my story too.
