women at home

What’s your Why?

Every Budding Entrepreneur, upon joining their promising new business, is almost always, instructed to make a note, a board or a list, stating for themselves exactly what the main reasons they have for wanting to work from home, or at least begin the process of quitting their “day job ” to run toward time and financial freedom. I began this process at the age of 50, with 3 ,now grown, children and a failed marriage of 15 years. In one of my personal journals I found my first list of

WHY

My Why’s are MANY

MANY YEARS OF TIME THAT MY NEED TO PUT IN HOURS AT WORK, TOOK AWAY FROM MY GOD GIVEN RESPONSIBILITIES AS A WIFE, MOTHER AND DAUGHTER.

MANY MISSED OPPORTUNITIES FOR MINISTRY THAT REQUIRED HOURS OR DOLLARS THAT I COULD NOT AFFORD. MANY HEARTBREAKING REGRETS OF TIME MISSED WITH MY CHILDREN GROWING UP, LITTLE FIRSTS, SCHOOL ACTIVITIES, EXHAUSTED EVENINGS THAT DIDN’T ALLOW FOR THE EXTRA ATTENTION THAT CHILDREN NEED.

MANY HOURS OF STRESS THAT BEING AWAY FROM HOME AND FAMILY AT TIMES WHEN YOU KNOW YOU ARE NEEDED CAN CAUSE.

MANY DOLLARS WASTED TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE NEEDS OF A HOME AND CHILDREN FOR VERY LITTLE INCOME, WHEN TIME WOULD HAVE ALLOWED ME TO BE ABLE TO PLAN, MAKE FROM SCRATCH, OR JUST DO IT MYSELF FOR LESS MONEY.

MANY TEARS OF GUILT FROM KNOWING THAT I AFFECTED ALL OF THEIR LIVES BY BEING DRIVEN BY AN HOURLY WAGE INSTEAD OF JUST BEING THE WIFE, MOTHER AND DAUGHTER THAT GOD INTENDED ME TO BE.

MANY DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE WITH MY SWEET HUSBAND, GROWN CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN THAT WORKING 40 PLUS HOURS A WEEK TO EARN $40,000.00 A YEAR FOR 40 YEARS WILL NOT ACCOMPLISH!

TIME AND FINANCIAL FREEDOM!

I came to the sad realization of how much hurt my need to work outside of the home had caused my children and myself about 20 years too late.

TODAY, there are many great opportunities for women to grow a business, earn good money and have the time freedom to love and enjoy and train up their families.
