Just over a month ago, my digital home – this place – became my full-time gig… or as full-time as it gets combined with my other role as mummy. Here is where my heart lies, my passion. For so long I’ve had the entrepreneurial bug, craving the freedom that self-employment brings BUT I held back. I wasn’t ready to go it alone.
My life has changed so much in the past five years: meeting and marrying my husband, relocating, welcoming a baby boy into our little clan, and now preparing for another arrival in April. It turns out my work-style needed to change and move with the times too. Did I feel ready? Heck, no. Circumstances, though, gave me the push to take the leap.
And in the month that has been, already I’ve learned a big lesson. I realised I could have waited for the perfect timing forever: I could have waited until I had built up a bigger tribe of customers, I could have waited until my babies are older, I could have waited until I’d got just a little bit more money saved as a “cushion”. I could have waited… and waited. Only in taking the leap have I seen the mindset shift in being fully committed to something.
That commitment has also brought with it much more clarity and a fresh perspective. I’m not only committed to my business but crystal clear on who I want to help: if you’re a good girl who’s ready to nurture your own dreams and start-up your own passionate business, I’m talking to you. If you’re a mummy who’s decided that the time is now to make your entrepreneurial dreams happen, you’re my girl.
To mark this fresh start, you might notice that things are looking a little different around here. I wanted to make my online space feel more like me and what I’m about. I hope you like the new look… Take some time to have a little look around, get on the list – The Glitterati, and let me know what you think.
