Five years ago I found myself standing at a crossroad. Ever since I was little I dreamed of being a mom. As a matter of fact, I can even remember praying, at just 10 years old, that my children would live happy and healthy lives. So the idea of being a mother has been on my heart for as long as I can remember.
As the daughter of a single mother, I know first hand what it’s like to share your Mommy with the world. My best friend (Mom) worked. She worked a lot! Whenever I met friends who had stay-at-home mothers, I was jealous. Their moms could pick them up from school, and their mom’s baked them cookies. My mom, however, was running a business away from home and hiring a cleaning lady.
Don’t get me wrong, my mother set an incredible example for me. She taught me to be an independent thinker, to be someone who could get things done, to be an entrepreneur. I couldn’t appreciate those lessons until adulthood. When I was 10, I just wanted my own mom to pick me up from school…not the bus…and I wanted her to bake me cookies.
As I got older I found myself wishing that I could be both the stay-at-home mom AND the entrepreneur. I dreamed about being able to offer the comfort of a stay-at-home mom and be the example of an empowered, independent woman for my children. The idea seemed impossible.
So there I stood, five years ago, with that impossible idea staring me in the face. I was working full-time as a high school history teacher when someone offered me an opportunity that could one day allow me to work from home. My husband and I were planning to start having children within a year or so. If I got started with this opportunity, and worked it part-time, maybe, just maybe, I could earn enough to stay home with my babies. I didn’t overthink it and jumped right in!
Taking that leap of faith was one of the smartest things I have ever done. I spend each day with my sons. We go to play dates, story time and bake cookies together. No one tells me when I get to be with my children. I never miss out on milestones. I’ve left my teaching career, and I am earning a residual income because I was smart enough to get started when the right opportunity came my way.
An added perk of being in business for myself, as a stay-at-home-mom, is the connections I’ve made with other mothers. We created a community for ourselves and our children. We are examples of lifting ourselves by lifting others. We are able to network and have our children in safe environments with loving people we know, while we earn an income and balance all those unpredictable responsibilities that come with being mothers. We also get to reward ourselves with luxury vacations we’ve earned through incentivized programs with our awesome businesses.
Mothers know what it’s like to face the unpredictable and uncontrollable circumstances of caring for babies, for toddlers…even teenagers…so being in business for ourselves, but not by ourselves, and having systems in place that are simple and easy to follow made my decision to pursue a home-based business…using the relationship marketing business model…a solid, lucrative choice. It’s the only choice, in today’s world, that flows with, (and not against), the schedule of babies, of children, of making family the center of life. I could never be there for my children had I chose Corporate America. That structure doesn’t bend with the clingy baby who just wants his Mommy! The 9 to 5 grind isn’t forgiving when your little one had a sleepless night and you got even less sleep.
Relationship Marketing…whether you’re engaged in a part-time side gig to earn an extra $500 a month or a full-time role to earn an unlimited amount…you determine what that is by consistent-persistent activity…flexes with where you are mentally, physically and in the timeframe you choose.
So here is my advice to you:
