ME: "Something is missing, not right here. We have been doing the same thing year after year for the last 19 years and the results are still the same."
HIM: "What do you mean?"
ME: "I mean, I am tired of the same ol' same ol'. We get up every morning, go to work. We spend long hours there away from our children, then we come home, eat dinner and get ready to do it all over again. As long as we are doing the same thing with no change, we will have the same results...and what are we gaining from these results? I want to start a business!"
This one conversation started my research! The possibilities are limitless! There is so much to choose from! I researched many different businesses for about a year. Finally, I found my match. I chose to go with a company which has a long history of producing and selling natural products. The start up costs were very workable with my budget and I have a wonderful team of people at my fingertips when I need help.HIM: "OK. What kind of business?"
OK. So now I have a business. How do I market my business? How do I generate customers and team members? I make connections with people who have already ventured down this road and are willing to help newbies like me along the way. One of these fabulous people is Michele Scism of Decisive Minds, LLC.
Michele's purpose is one of the things that drew me to her work. "Besides my family I have one passion in life and that is to help other entrepreneurial women achieve the success in business that they deserve!"; taken from her website. I made a connection with Michele. Her heart and mine seem very similar in desiring to help others! It is through this connection with her that I learned of April's Ultimate Blog Challenge! It is my desire, through this challenge, to improve my blogging skills. Blogging is one avenue I chose to take to market my business. This is another of the "new beginnings" for me this year! They always say, "Practice makes perfect!", what better way to practice than through a challenge like this!
You are never too old to learn. I believe that when you stop learning, you stop living! So, let's take this challenge, create new friendships, and learn together!
