Are you feeling overwhelmed by technology and anxious about getting your business online?
I can totally relate. Some years ago I was in the same spot … starting a business as a single parent. I had no spare time, no spare money and certainly not enough knowledge to embrace the fast moving online world of technology. None of my friends had their own business and I didn’t know where to get help.
But I also had two HUGE fears:
- Fear of regret that one day I would look back and regret not starting my own business.
- Fear of missing out on seeing my young son grow up.
Sure, I could have put my then 2 year old boy into daycare and returned into the corporate world. I would have earned enough money to support us, BUT ……..
I decided, I would give it all I had and started my own website design business. And I had to learn fast … I read all I could find, attended seminars and courses and consumed way too much coffee and chocolate, but I was determined … I had to make it work.
So many sleepless nights …
So many sleepless nights, worrying whether I could pull it off. I had doubts and I was terrified. But that made me work even harder. I pushed through all the challenges and after getting a taste of being my own boss, I knew I could never go and work for someone else.
The years went by and I learned many lessons … I laughed at my blonde moments while navigating the geek world and drove my family crazy with my “brilliant” marketing ideas.
Most importantly though, running my own business gave me the freedom to do what I wanted when I wanted. I organised appointments with clients around junior’s schedule, so I got to cheer at all his football games, I was there for the award days and I got to drop him off and pick him up from school each day. And on a few occasions, I took him out of school and we travelled …
Over the years I have learnt an awful lot about technology, running a small business and about myself.
I also learnt I couldn’t possibly know everything there is about running a business and I partnered up with passionate women and put together The Savvy Woman’s Practical Guide to Online Business to help you get started on your journey.
