As most of you know, I run my little business & blog from home. I’ve taken a much loved hobby and turned it into a business. As you can imagine, it didn’t happen overnight.
In fact, with so much going on in my personal life from divorce, grief, loss and re-marrying, it was a good job I didn’t have a “proper” job because there’s no way I could’ve coped. At that time most of my work was just freelance. No real structure and I certainly wouldn’t call it a business.
I didn’t have any real direction or focus. I had big dreams and I knew I wanted to run my own business. But I lacked some basic business skills, direction and clarity. I didn’t know what to do first. And so I ended up spending months (and then a couple of years) not really achieving much at all.
It didn’t help that I was also dealing with the recent loss of my beloved Dad. Steve, my hubby, decided we should get away for a couple of weeks and so we went to Italy. While there, just chilling one afternoon on my laptop, I came across Marie Forleo’s free life/business training video series. I’m not even sure now how I stumbled on her website. Anyway, I signed up for her videos as I loved her ethos for women “creating a life and business they love”. I was inspired.
Hands down it was the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m still working on my business. It’s early days BUT I have focus, determination and the business skills to now get things going. It’s given me the confidence to believe in myself and what I want to achieve. It’s more than just dreaming big. It’s having the confidence, skills and direction to make those dreams come true.
Marie has just released her 2013 free training video series. They’re only available for a limited time and wanted to be sure to let you know as these videos were the beginning of huge changes in my life. Not just for my business but my personal life too. They’re a game changer.
If you’ve been thinking about working from home or you have a dream of a different life for you and your loved ones, go sign up for her videos. They’re inspirational and really help you get direction, focus and clarity.
