I started as an entrepreneur not only because I loved making money, but because I didn’t want to be just a stay at home mom. Child raising and marriage is challenging. It’s difficult. And many times you just want to escape.
My business gave me an escape from the challenges of marriage and family. It took me away from the constant complaints about what I made for dinner.
I love making money and turning my ideas into money. When I was 5 years old, I remember making menus with prices, serving my parents breakfast in bed, and getting paid! I’ve always had an entrepreneurial mind. I love being creative and being in charge of my own life.
Having a business is different than having a job. I had an “office” job for about a year after I returned from serving in South America as a Peace Corps Volunteer and I felt like a caged animal. It was difficult for me to be stuck inside an office for 40 hours a week. As a result, I’ve always been the captain of my own ship. When I had my children, I was committed to being a stay-at-home mom. But I was always working a little side hustle here and there, and when my kids were in school all day, I had large chunks of time during the day to myself to begin the long, slow process of turning my dreams into reality: to be a stay-at-home mom with a home business, getting paid full-time pay for part-time hours.
And that’s when I discovered my first business - Beachbody Coaching. If you have ever heard of or done an MLM (multi-level marketing), you know the negative perception most people have about it. I hit so many roadblocks of potential customers that didn’t understand it and I didn’t know how to stand out from the herds of others trying to do the same thing. Despite the challenges, I became so obsessed with making it work and reaching my dream of owning a 6 figure business, I neglected my kids and family trying to hustle, and spent late nights spinning my wheels at my computer. I burned out.
I could see how much money other moms were earning, but I actually got ANGRY. I wanted to figure out how to STAND OUT and earn some REAL MONEY.
So I hired my first coach. And spent a lot of money to learn the basics of becoming a business owner. I went into it with high hopes and visions of money and independence - but when it came time to launch it and sell it, I froze. I didn’t have the confidence. I didn’t feel aligned with it, and I didn’t know what the hell I was doing.
I was scared. I had never done this before and didn’t feel the confidence to charge the thousands of dollars I wanted to and to speak the message I was told to speak. So I hired another coach who I helped me get more aligned with myself, I changed my messaging, gained the confidence I needed, and I finally got some clients.
But marketing and getting clients when you’re first starting out is time consuming - and as a mom - it was too much. So I went back to Beachbody coaching because it seemed easier, and I used what I learned to make more money. However, once again I burned out.
BACK TO THE BEGINNING
We all hear about how your mindset is important, but one of the most important things I can tell you today is that how you see yourself and see the world - especially as a mompreneur - will make or break you.
There are many paths to success but all paths have to navigate through the “roadblocks” of your subconscious mind.
Often your subconscious is like a mine-field of limiting beliefs and old outdated “programs” that get in the way of your ability to focus, stay organized, balance your life as a mom and business owner, and earn a ton of money. As a mom especially, you have to be especially more organized and strategic.
You have beliefs you don’t even realize are there until you run into problems with your business:
Money is hard to make.
I have to work a lot to make a lot.
I have to do everything “right”.
I can’t afford to fail.
I have to do it all. I don’t have enough time. There is so much to do.
I have to learn it all and do it all myself.
My voyage into entrepreneurialism after my children were born was at the PSYCH-K® Centre International. During my time as their bookkeeper, Rob Williams, the Originator of PSYCH-K® taught me about beliefs, our subconscious mind, how our reality and entire experience as human beings was all based on beliefs, and how to change those beliefs so we could have a better life. One day I realized I had limiting beliefs and that maybe, if I uncovered and fixed them, I could have the life of my dreams.
I wanted to be happier, healthier, wealthier, have more time, have a clean house, and so much more - and while I was witnessing the PSYCH-K® center international skyrocket, I thought to myself, here is a solid business that is successful in the world. I need to learn this.
I was doing PSYCH-K® sessions for myself and for others on the side, and I was seeing my own results - increased happiness, life becoming easy and fun again, and money starting to flow - and the profound results of my clients who were experiencing the same things. I realized this was my purpose. So after my failed business past, I decided to really own my PSYCH-K® mind shifting life purpose, and with the endorsement of Dr. Bruce Lipton himself, along with knowing how to promote myself, having clarity, alignment, and with a lot of testing, I turned things around and am now living my 6 figure business dream.
THE REAL SECRET TO SUCCESS WITH MONEY
I know that if you, as a mom who has a vision for something incredible, and are thinking of leaving your job to go into your business full-time or if you have a business and feel stuck, you DO have the potential to succeed. And here is my best advice for you:
1 - Have a very strategic vision and plan for your exit strategy and the growth of your new business.
2 - Don’t try and do it all alone. Find a coach to help you with the important aspects of your business: your niche, your message, your services/programs, your marketing plan, etc.
3- When you are with your children and family, be 100% present with them.
4 - When you are working, be 100% focused on your work.
5 - Share your vision with your partner (if you have one) and make sure you have support from him/her or others.
I keep very strict office hours. When my children are home from school and on weekends, I don’t schedule clients or do anything work related. I am very regimented and scheduled with my time. When I’m working, I go full out, that way, when I’m not working I can walk away knowing that I’ve done my best and my best is good enough (that’s a belief to work on!!!).
Being a mompreneur can be challenging, but it’s NOT impossible. You CAN do anything you put your mind (your subconscious) mind to.
Here are 3 things you can start doing it today to start believing your way to getting rich:
1- Write a list of your top 10 limiting beliefs (i.e. I don’t have a lot of time; making money is hard, etc).
2- Write the counterpart to those limiting beliefs (i.e. I have all the time in the world to make a ton of money)
3- Pick one of those counterparts and say it first thing when you wake up and right before you go to sleep. Your brain is in Theta mode, which is the time when it is most accepting to adopting and shifting to new beliefs. It will feel uncomfortable and unbelievable at first but repetition, in 6 weeks or less, things will start changing.
The work you are meant to do will find you. It’s literally mind blowing and life changing to know that everything you have is already inside of you.
My work with my clients is much larger than me and my personal desires and needs. With my work, I am participating and supporting my clients in the process of a monumental shift in human consciousness, of which we are all playing a part, consciously and subconsciously.
You can do anything you put your mind to and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
