Ironically, on Thanksgiving Day I don’t wake with thoughts of gratitude. Yesterday I woke with the thought of what I forgot to get at the store. Then I got up and quickly headed out. Last night as I went to bed (well, it was 5:00am so technically it was this morning that I went to bed) I was so exhausted after sitting up and talking with my husband, that I collapsed and was asleep in less than 20 seconds.

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.
