I went to the Niche Affilate Marketing System conference 2 weeks ago and I learned sooo much. And I met sooo many great entreprenuers. One of the many changes that’s taking place in my business is this blog post before you. I’ve put my website and my blog in one place. I was with Blogger.com-an EXCELLENT and EASY blogging platform-to come to WordPress. Everyone says this is better and will help with the things that I desire to do in the future. We shall see.
Mom entrepreneur, as you grow your business it’s very easy to become frustrated by the climb. You may not be an overnight success and that means a lot of hard work while you continue to cook, clean and chase toddlers. That may mean working on your business during the night while holding a sleepy baby. Or talking to clients while chauffeuring teenagers; all examples of my day, by the way.
But remember that it’s not about the other side, it’s really about the lessons that you learn while on this side of your small business. The lessons of creativity, patience, thanksgiving, giving love when tired, receiving help when you need it, being joyful when life is unbalanced, moving forward when you’re lost and a whole host of other lessons that, when allowed to build your character, will serve you greatly on the other side of success.
Enjoy the climb to the top because when you get there there will be another mountain to climb.
This song, sung by Miley Cyrus, is a wonderful reminder.

Running your own business can be challenging at times. It’s probably easier to let someone else deal with all the challenges and just collect a paycheck, but in today’s economy there’s not a lot of security in that scenario.
So how do I get past the challenges? How do I keep going when the going gets tough? How do I get back up when I stumble or fall down – and yes, I do fall down, just like everyone else does.
I know it’s not theologically sound to say that my children exist because of Michael Jackson, but let me explain.
I was a Michael Jackson Freak. That’s what people called me, that’s how I behaved,and that’s the name I enjoyed being called. I spent my allowance on every little MJ paraphernalia that I could get my hands on. I was smart enough to save some of the items even though I had NO CLUE that Ebay would be in existence 25 years later! Where’s my digital camera?!
