I have been asked how stay at home moms can make an income from home. Is it really possible? The answer is… I bet you can guess… YES! The challenge that I have seen time and time again is that some moms don’t start anything because they don’t realize their full potential. I have seen women who are super duper talented but don’t apply themselves or make excuses why they can’t do something. I have also seen moms that started making soaps just for their family and have turned it into a booming business! So what is the difference? They first established what they love to do and made a business out of it. But it first starts with taking action and knowing your worth. Sometimes we ALL can struggle with the thought of who am I and how can anyone take me seriously as a stay at home mom? Reality is that you have a lot to offer but have to discover your potential.
So if you haven’t found a way to make extra money from home first ask yourself what do you like to do? Is there a company out there that offers something you can be passionate about? Do they have the support system in place to achieve your income goal? Here is a quick story I know you will be blessed with. The common denominator here is taking action and knowing you are valuable!
This is story of a young Colorado mom Susan Brown. Her daughter’s day care center asked parents to bring in pillows to prop up infants who couldn’t sit up on their own. Susan created a C-shaped pillow that night and brought it to the center the next day. She soon had many more requests to make more pillows. Susan Brown is the creator of the Boppy infant feeding and support pillow. LOVE that pillow! 🙂 I love her story because it started with an idea, she took action and boom she has a multi-million dollar business today! She found there was a need, had an idea, took action to create it and it worked! She saw the value in her idea and offered it to the world!
So what are some things that you need to take action on today? Know that you can bring value to it. After all, we each bring something different to the plate because not one of us is made exactly the same. Here are some steps you can take:
1. Find a opportunity that you are passionate about.
2. Believe in yourself and your potential
3. Develop your skills.
4. Take consistent ACTION!!
Now that you have a foundation the sky is the limit for you and your success!
