Work At Home Mom: Failure Is Not An Option – Survival Tips

Posted on: November 13, 2010

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.

Be Diligent
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.

I really like your article. I am hoping to start my own at home business in the future, I just have not figured out how to go about it.

Start with finding a consumable product that can be sampled easily. Something that comes in a single serving. has perfect sampling products.

All you have to do is order some, try it out for yourself until you find a product you can call your own.

Then start sharing it with people. Follow up with people you chose to, let people come to you and weed out the tire kickers.

Keep moving forward and always stay in the game weather you choose to stay with the same company or not it’s a personal development thing and it helps you grow as a person and learn new things that arnt taught traditionally.

The most unique industry in the world.

Keep it simple.

Do whatever it takes, be create and seek advice from mentors until you find yourself 🙂
