So let’s get right into it. I have two girls, one in primary school the other on my lap right now living up to her nick name “milk snatcher”. I left work when I got pregnant with the milk snatcher and in that time I enjoyed being at home. I enjoyed the school run (I’m over it now) and spending time with my baby when she was born.
In the time I was getting used to being a mama to a baby again, at the back of my mind I knew that I’d have to go back to work at some point. The problem with that was what kind of job could I have that would allow me to still be around my girls at will?
I’ve always wanted to be self-employed but to work out what I was good at I don’t think was the problem. My problem I guess is everybody else’s problem when venturing into the unknown, with no one to hide behind, FEAR.
Fear of failing. Fear of putting myself out there. Fear of sharing and not being able to take it all back, but still there are mammas out there killing it, high-flying and making their kiddies proud. I want to make my babies proud.
I went to a ‘phenomenal woman’s tea party’ by the Smilieers (Google it) and there a speaker named Joanna Abeyie said “it’s scary but do it anyway”. She made it sound so simple and then I started to think what do I really have to lose? Nothing, What do I stand to gain? Lots! So I started thinking what am I good at – that would be networking. Cool, what can I do with the skill of networking? Maybe create networking events, well no because I don’t want to to be honest. But then just like that I remembered something cool I saw about a year ago. Two ladies giving kids Glitter tattoos at a birthday party and me thinking I could do that.
Well today I’m saying I’m going to do that – yes lots of people do that but they are not me and I not them. All on my own I am phenomenal, and bar that my girls will always consider me the best, so I’m already #winning.
I went to bed at 5:30am because my mind was bursting with ideas of how I’ll create my USP and lots of researching, oh Google what a faithful friend! The more I mapped out what steps I’ll take the more excited I became, the more excited I become the more nervous I am, the more nervous I am the more I think…… JUST DO IT ANYWAY.
This is my first blog post, this is my first step forward and you’re invited to come along with me on my journey… just need to pop over to the dashboard and go live so let’s speak again next time lol.
Eek and Bye
