Success in the hands of the believer

The Idea of starting my own business first came to me after the birth of my third child, it then took me 14 years of toying with the idea researching companies and finding one that fits in with my training as a Nurse.

Following the birth of my fifth child, I began to seriously weigh up the pros and cons of running my own business around my children. After much deliberation, I finally made a decision in February of 2016 that changed my life all for the better! 

The only way I knew to get started was by learning a marketable skill and getting to work. So I started to respond to social media posts, In my experience, that’s where the ideas, opportunities, partners, and finances seem to come from it was a hot market. Sure, it also took an enormous amount of hard work, but that just comes with the territory.

My success was in my hands. What can I say, that’s life. Besides, look on the bright side, I'm getting to do what I want and I get to do it my way and I get paid for it. 

Financially things had been tough, I was running a farm, and kids from sport to sports, therapy to therapy the bills were piling up the break I so desperately needed seemed so far away. I put my new skills and knowledge that I had learnt through our social media marketing training and set about promoting my business.

Soon I was reaching for the stars, my confidence had grown well beyond my Uni days, personal development was new and scary but boy was it intriguing, wow I had begun to shine. I wasn't even aware how much these critical changes had empowered me as not only a mum but as a business woman and entrepreneur!

Before I knew it, my work was being rewarded with certificates recommendations, invitations, overseas travel, extra income and more importantly a sense of belonging. I was the proud owner of a business that gave me more sense of belonging than anything else in had ever done in my life.

I always say, the world is full of possibilities and countless opportunities, but your life and career are finite, you have limited time to find what you’re searching for and make your mark on the world.

Find something you like to do and just do it. That’s how real entrepreneurs always start.
