Five months in, less wine more napping...?
I'm entering the fifth month of my business venture and I have no idea where the time has gone!
It's been a crazy adventure of meeting new clients, deciding how to best support small businesses, working whenever I can sneak in time, managing three young (nutty) kids and taking care of a senile, yet adorable little Boston Terrier. Add that to the soccer teams I play on, kid activities, birthday parties, playdates, date nights, friends, family affairs and a couple of sad deaths in my circle, it's been hectic to say the least. And I'm trying to quit wine (gasp!).
Finding the balance between work, kids, my marriage and taking care of myself is a daily challenge. But that being said, I'm so grateful for the freedom to pick and choose what I want to do and when I want to do it.
The first payment I received for work was in early March and while it was just over $100, it was exhilarating! It was exciting because it was symbolic of all the hard work I have put into making my side gig successful and rewarding. Now that I have 8-9 regularly paying clients, I am so confident in this industry and more so in the potential to expand and grow. Who knew that there was a next step in the ladder from Virtual Assistance!?
My goal moving forward is to become an Online Business Manager and expand my team and my reach. I'd love to hire people from the pool of skilled stay at home parents who share the same goals and values that I do. I know I'm in the early days but I'm excited about what this industry holds for me! Now if only I could find a way to gain a few hours every day.........but who am I kidding? I'd probably just take a nap.
