When most of us begin to think about starting a home business the whole thing just seems way too hard? It's overwhelming!! Most people find there are 3 huge obstacles when they start a home business. You have no idea what you're doing, you don't know how to get customers, and you lose all balance in your life. 


Does any of this sound familiar? I had all 3 of these problems. I was completely overwhelmed and scared to death when I started. But, I found an amazing company that helped me solve all of these problems.

1) No idea what you're doing or where to start. This is an esay one to solve. When you're just starting out & have no idea what to do, you want a company that has a proven system. There is no reason why you should have to figure out everything for yourself. A system that is getting results for others is a great place to start. It gives you a guideline to follow & makes running your business a whole lot easier.

2) No idea how to find customers or make sales. No one wants to feel like a slimey salesperson. Unfortunately, when most people start a business that's exactly the feeling you get. You don't want your friends and family to be your customers. You want to find customers that actually WANT your products. That's why you need marketing training. You need to learn how to find customers, how to communicate so you don't come off as a slimey salesperson, & how to make it as easy as possible.

3) It seems like you lose all balance in your life. We are all super busy even before we start a business. We've spent years perfecting a balance between family, jobs, errands, obligations, and hopefully even fit in a little time for ourselves. When you add a homebusiness to the mix it can throw everything out of whack. Starting out, your business is going to take a lot of time. There's training, learning how to do everything, and experiencing your products. It's so easy to feel like there's not enough hours in the day. 

The easiest way to solve this problem is a schedule, a timer, & some help. Figure out how much time a day you can spend on your business, then put it in your schedule. Even if it's one hour a night before bed, schedule it & that's YOUR TIME. Next you need a timer to divvy up your work time. This keeps you from wasting time. Spend no more than half the time in learning mode & make sure you take some action for your business every session. Doesn't matter if it's writing a blog post, doing a video, posting to groups, or building your email list, just make sure you do something. 


Most importantly...don't be afraid to ask for help. Have someone pick the kids up from school, help you clean, make dinner, walk the dog, whatever it is that will make things easier. This way you're not just adding anther thing to your To-Do list, you're swapping it out. I can't tell you how helpful this step is. I will warn you that this is the hardest step if you're a control freak like I was.  


You're starting a business to create your real life perfect, so always make sure that however you decide to solve the problems that come up, the solution feels right for you.

Do you ever have one of those days where the boss calls you into their office & you just know you're gonna get your a$$ handed to you? You get yelled at or blamed for something that maybe wasn't your fault. But, you need that job so you just sit there and take it.


You know exactly what you'd like to say. You want to quit. You want to tell them the truth about what you really think. But, the fact that you NEED that job to pay your bills stops you. You feel stuck. You feel trapped. You're miserable. What you really want is a way to create extra income so that you can get out from under them. 


I know what that's like. I've been there. It's stressful. You dread going to work, but you make the best of it. Even though you are no where near happy. All you think about is if you had the money, YOU'D QUIT!! Maybe you've been looking for a new job and can't find one. Maybe you think it's safer to deal with the demon you know, what if a new boss is worse? You've developed ways to deal with this boss.


Now, imagine if there was a way for you to be the boss. A way for you to create an income from home. A way for you to free yourself from that job all together. A way to help you save money and pay off your debt. How would your life change? How much happier could you be? 


There is a way. You have a story greater than the one you are living. Isn't it time you start living it?

Are You Scared

0 Comments

We are all scared of something. Some of it is all in our heads, while some of it is all too real. 


Many of the people I've been talking with share a lot of the same fears. They are scared they won't be able to pay their bills. They are scared of something happening and not being able to cover that situation (an injury, illness, major expense or repair). They're scared of the holidays coming up because they don't know how they're going to pay for it. And they are scared that they will be stuck in a job they don't like because they have no other option.


I truely hope you don't have these fears, because I had all those fears and then some and it was stressing me out. My hours were being cut at work, I was struggling to pay my bills, I was in a dead end job that I felt like I'd never escape, and I was terrified that I couldn't change any of that.


I let that fear motivate me and I began to search for a solution. I found a lot of things that seemed sketchy, too good to be true, and total bullsh*t. But, I was desperate so I kept searching. Finally, I found what I was looking for. I found a system that was getting people results and it got me results. I connected with so many awesome people and there was training that I understood. 


As I took control, my fears kept getting smaller. I can't tell you how happy I was the first time I wasn't counting the days til the next bill was due because I knew I had the money to pay them. 


Stop being scared, and start taking action.

If you're anything like I was a month ago; the word cleanse brings up images of angry, food deprived people. Maybe they get smoothies, soup, or 1 strange food (cabbage comes to mind)but that's about it. Cleanses honestly scared the crap out of me. Apparently my boyfriend too. You should have seen his face when I told him I was going on one for 15 DAYS!!! He said, "If you turn into a crazy b*tch I will make you eat!!!"


Here's what I learned. Not all cleanses are the same and they don't have to be hard. The one I did was a raw food cleanse. It has smoothies, salads, soups, cooked & raw meals, snacks, and desserts. The recipes are so good I will make them on a regular basis. Let me say, I have not been hungry at all. In fact it's more than I normally eat. I'm happy, I feel great, and I sleep better. My boyfriend even wants to do the next one with me!! 


I also learned that like everything that's worthwhile, there is an investment. We are not horrible eaters, but I had to buy some staples and ofcourse the fresh vegtables. There's also a time investment. I did a lot of prep work so I had snacks and smoothies ready for the day. I can be lazy, so I love that with a little prep I have grab-n-go snacks and meals. Overall it was really worth it and it's probably changed the way we eat from now on. Even if we opt for a quick frozen pizza, we can add one of the cleanse recipes and be kinda healthy.

Today is National Evaluate Your Life Day! I think that it's fabulous that it landed on a Sunday this year, because for most people Sunday is kinda their chill day. There's naturally a lot of focus on doing what you enjoy. 


I believe it's super important to evaluate your life from time to time, because it's easy to just get comfortable and to settle. Today is about all the things you really want. That dream lifestyle that you picture yourself living. It's also about eliminating the things that aren't working for you.


When I evaluate my life, I start with my overall picture. My ideal dream life. I include how I'd spend my days , where I live, what I do & anything else that comes to mind. Next I break it down into general categories. Career, relationships, daily life etc... Then I break each category into I want more of & I want to change.


For example with my daily life. I want more of. I want to spend more time cooking (I'm working on a whole healthier thing), I want to spend more time outside (I can shoot more of my videos outdoors), I want more me time & I want more relationship time (I've been super focused on my business & we haven't been going out or doing things together as much as I'd like).

What I want to change I'd like to have more of a daily schedule for business activities, I want to be less critical, I want to get rid of the junk that's just sitting in storage. Sometimes they overlap, but that's ok. As long as you get a direction out of it. 


This is just to figure out the what, you can always figure out the how later.


To your infinite success,
