They say women are not born to become entrepreneurs. Handling your own business for homebased mums can take so much time, focus and effort that it might be too much for them especially if they are mothers. Yes, we here at Create Australia couldn’t agree more that women have so many responsibilities in their family that the thought of running their own business can sometimes be far fetched. It’s either you say goodbye to your career or you say goodbye to your dreams of being homebased mums; and too often people assume doing both is too hard.
It is very tempting to focus only on the challenges. However, my team at Create Australia and I believe that if you understand the advantages of becoming a female entrepreneur and starting your business now, you will become more open to achieving your goals not just for yourself but also for your family.
I was just like you a few years back. Strong willed and not willing to give up hope on the prospect of being able to juggle both a family and a career, my only question though was how? I struggled for a long time, searching for a solution. I wanted to do both—be a loving mum to my children and be an entrepreneur at the same time.
Now I look back and I know that if I hadn’t followed my dive for freedom or my dreams of watching my kids grow up then I wouldn’t be in the financially stable situation or exist in the happy lifestyle I have. So I want you to do the same. I want you to follow your heart, muster the courage to go out on a limb by starting your own business.
If you are thinking about starting your own business but is held back by all of these self-doubts, these are the 3 reasons that will tell you you’re wrong.
- This is the best time to start your own business. Thanks to technology, you can manage your business wherever you are. If you have a laptop or an iPhone, you can earn money if you want to.
- You can get more support from working mums like you. Since many more women are into business it is easy to get the support you need to start your own. Just here at Create Australia, you have so many colleagues going through the same thing every day.
- If you’re a parent, chances are you know how to balance, work out your responsibilities better. That is the primary advantage of being a mum when you’re a businesswoman. We’ve heard the rumours of how parenting can teach you so many valuable lessons in life, and I will tell you every bit of that is true. You will treat your business as if it’s one of your children.
Still doubtful of yourself? Why not have a quick chat with the Create Australia team and we’ll help you gain back that confidence! We will give you a free pass to learning how to launch your own homebased business. Call us 1800 617 111Follow Myriam Borg On Social Media:
