You've read those stories about mums working for themselves from home. Freelancing, setting up online shops, blogging and selling their skills for amazing rates. And you've been thinking about all the different things you could do in a dream world.
But it all seems a bit scary and you're not sure if you could do it. You're really doubting yourself. You decide that you'll think about again another day. One day. You'd love to do it, but, really, how could you actually get there.
I mean, if you can't even work out what to do, then why on earth would anyone pay you for it, right?
❌ WRONG! ❌
When it comes to working for yourself, I know how hard it is to get started. I spent 12 years telling myself that one day I'd:
a) be working for myself, deciding exactly what I do in my work day, not tied to anyone else's schedule, no manager. I'm in charge. And:
b) be earning enough money that I can live the life I want without having to work full time.
Most mums I talk to are making one HUGE mistake.
They're telling themselves they can't do it before they've even tried.
And as soon as they do that, they're taking away the option of finding out what life could be like otherwise. Because it was too difficult to get started. Too scary. Too risky.
