Work At Home Mom: Failure Is Not An Option – Survival Tips
Posted November 13, 2010on:
As a single mom, or a stay at home mom, starting a home business can be a scary thing. Whether you’re going to be relying on your home business to pay the bills, or even just as a source of some additional income, the fact is that for most moms, failure really is not an option. So, what do you do to insulate yourself from failure? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
As a mom, this should be a skill that you’ve perfected by now, and following up over an over again with your clients and leads should be easier than potty training or teaching your child to enjoy broccoli. In all seriousness, being a mom really does prepare you for a lot of the situations you’ll encounter in business, but it can be a lot harder to want to stick it out and put in the long hours with a client that you barely know than spending time working on something with your own child. The key is to know that hard work in the same direction always pays off, so don’t become discouraged when it seems like you’re spinning your tires.
