Mompreneurs Who Use The Internet To Work From Home
By Golda Smith
 
With an internet connection, today’s woman can work from any location she pleases and build a profitable business. Where do you call home? Is it a remote beach in Hawaii, a home office in your gated subdivision or your living room couch in your apartment? Where ever you call mom, you can raise your children and build the business you desire on your terms. When I say “women who work from home” I am referencing women who use the internet as a means of building their business from the comfort of where ever they choose, for me…it’s my kitchen table.
 
Why You Should Consider Building A Home Based Business
 
With many states having unemployment rates in the double digits and low paying jobs, many working moms realize that things must change. They realize that they are worth a lot more than they’re being paid and that they have skills, knowledge and passions they want to monetize and should. Ask most mothers why they want to work from home and one of the first responses is to spend more time with their children. The fact that you can literally build your internet business part time so that you can spend as much time you’re your family is a fabulous incentive to build your online business. What do you need? A product and or service, a list, and wordpress site.
 
Wait…there’s one more thing.
 
Probably the most important. You need a coach/mentor! Do not do it alone, it’s a recipe for disaster. For the longest time, I made this mistake and then I came across a woman who had the track record and results that I desired. It’s not every day that I meet someone who’s built a million dollar direct sales business completely through the internet! Okay, I want THAT!!!
 
One objection I usually hear is, “I don’t like sales”. To that I have this reply; if you intend to have a business of any kind then you must understand sales. Embrace it and make it your friend. Instead of running from it try increasing your skill set so that you are more valuable to the marketplace. The marketplace pays for value.
 
Another objection that I hear is, “I don’t know what type of business to start”. This was my thinking as well. I knew that I wanted to build my network marketing business online but I had no clue how. I had no desire to go to meetings, have parties, and spend money on frigid leads. With the help of my business coach I started to piece together exactly what I needed to be doing. How to market myself, breakthroughs on what I had to offer and the guts to request what I am worth.
 
So what type of business will you start? You may ideas just gushing out of your head but one of the keys to success is to focus. Pick that one idea that you will build your business on. My next question is what are you willing to invest in? I see many women who somehow believe they can start an online business for FREE. Sorry to disappoint you but you will have to spend some money. Fortunately you can get a wordpress site up and running for less than $300. Your auto responder system, which you absolutely need, should cost less than $20 a month and your website hosting should cost about $10 a month.
 
One final piece that I want to mention that will make the difference between those who experience massive success and those who spend years spinning their wheels and getting frustrated is your mindset. I’ve been in a coaching program for the last six months and although there are a lot of technical questions often times, what’s really at the root of the problem isn’t the energy drink, compensation plan or company leadership. It’s the conversation that you are having with yourself every minute of every day. It’s the crap that you been carrying for years. Carrying it for so long that you’ve almost forgotten that’s the reason your load is so heavy.
 
The health of your mindset will determine how swiftly you are able to use the internet to build a business that allows you to work from home.
 
To sum it all up, what’s your plan and how will you execute it? If you are ready to take control of your financial future and stop making decisions based on payday then it’s time for something new. If you’re ready to trade in long commutes and office politics then it’s time for something new. Your children are depending on you, the people that are waiting for you to step up and show up in the fullness of what you were destined to do are depending on you.

It takes a lot of self discipline, but working from home has changed my life. I don't have to choose between a career and being a mom! Plus the extra money means my husband and I can retire earlier! LOVE IT!

Thank you for your valuable information! I, personally, seem to have it backwards: I love being in my sales job (true sales, not retail) but I am far from having the financial means for start-up.
Money is really tight right now that even an extra $30-40 out the door every month may mean stress and ruin. But I have the goal set in mind and our recent financial situation is temporary, I know that much!

Hi Brianna-

I certainly understand your situation. You remind me of a fabulous woman who at one point in her life was 30k in debt, had $2.03 to her name and was homeless. Somehow she boot strapped it and started a business from the trunk of her car and within 4 days she generated 2k. My business coach fought several life threatening diseases and was multiple 6 figures in debt and she boot strapped it and found a way to make it work. Both of these women a now multi millionaires.

I share those stories with you to let you know that you can do the same and greater! Thank you so much for your comment, until next time…
