FAQ Regarding Starting A Home Base Business

Those who aren’t serious about starting a business from home will seriously ask me questions like: I don’t have a lot of time or money, how can I quickly make a lot money working from home, become famous and have residual income for years to come while I’m vacationing with my family on the beach for six months of the year and still have enough money to retire by the age of 40?

How To Overcome the Overwhelm

lisa_decker

I just interviewed Momprenuer, Certified Divorce Financial Analysist, Lisa Decker (also known as Miss Money Matters); and OMGoodness what an inspiration!

For years she quietly worked for her husband’s business as she raised her 3 daughters. In one week she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, MS, Wrinkled Retina Disorder and a few other illnesses!  In that same year she discovered her gifts  and within a couple of years became a nationally recognized resource consultant to CNN, Business Week, Good Morning and Oprah Magazine!

Listen to her inspiring story as she gives some practical tips about How to Overcome The Overwhelming.

WordPress vs. Blogger

screaming womanOkay, so WordPress isn’t as easy as Blogger. Yeah…I figured that last year when I started my blog, that’s why I went with Blogger to begin with. It’s a template, so you just type in your posts, upload your videos or photos, add on widgets by clicking a couple of buttons in settings, make it pretty with a third party application by clicking one button and you are in business!  WordPress, not so.

If you notice the huge gap in dates here it’s because I was busy familiarizing myself with WordPress. I gave up and decided to hire Jerry Levenger. He took care of my 2 week frustration in 3 days!!

Now I’m back on my own. There are still things to learn and so little time to do so….aaarragh! Between homeschooling, clients, radio show and feeding kids (breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner! A huge job by itself!) I am now learning WordPress;  plugins, html, ftp, permalinks…I just wanted a neat blog connected to my website….sigh!

Everyone says WordPress is so much better than Blogger. Maybe in terms of is functionality but definitely not it’s user-ability.  So far I’m thinking; if it’s not user-friendly what do I care about it’s many functions!

Fortunately, I’m always open to learning new things.  I’ll say the jury is still out.

Don’t Forget To Enjoy The Climb

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.
