I have met some fantastic women this week. I went to an e-women networking event, to support my friend Elizabeth Gordon. She was the keynote speaker that night, promoting her new book “The Chic Entrepreneur”. I really enjoyed the women I met and plan to do business with many of them in the near future. Women supporting women. Moms supporting moms. Isn’t that the way it ought to be?
So it’s 10pm, and I’m doing laundry because, frankly, FEMA could designate my laundry room as a disaster area. Who has time for laundry when my business and “life” (defined today as a well child visit for my five year old, a trip to the store for a Webkinz and a chiropractor appointment for my oldest son) beckons all day long? Besides, what’s more fun, being a Capitalist or folding underwear?
One quality that sets a successful person apart–whether male or female, entrepreneur (like our millionairemom.com members) or employees–is the ability to take action. If you do not execute you do not create. It is that simple. Fortunately as moms, we possess this gift that is translatable to business.
Think of all the skills you already have that apply to running your own business:
Conducting business takes on a completely different spin once you become a mother. Children change every aspect of your life, including running your own business. I recall realizing, “Hey, this isn’t about me anymore” in the very first moments of becoming a mom. I had just given birth to my oldest son. I won’t go into the details, but I will give you the overview. He weighed 10 lbs. 9 oz., and my epidural didn’t take effect. Enough said. After he was born he needed the ICU.
