The reality of starting your own business

Starting your own business

Last year my husband stepped out of our comfort zone of a nice salary and decided to work for himself.  After we popped the champers on winning our first contract it suddenly dawned on me the responsibility this will hold for me. What it will mean for us.


I’m a bookkeeper, I’m the marketing department, I’m the HR department, I’m the accounts payable, I’m the receptionist, I’m the contract administration.

I’m also a wife, I’m a homemaker. I’m a mother.

I found out pretty quickly there is one way to learn a lot of this. That’s the hard way.  I fucked up. I ordered wrong doors, I sat up too late, I paid the wrong suppliers, I forgot to place orders, lost paper work, we had fights, I cried a few hundred times too many.

In between all this I started the Business Mamas course.  It was presented to me and I thought well I can’t really get any worse. This might help.

My pack arrived – with registrations, guides, log ins, guides and motivation books and contact details for my Angel. So I did what I do best and put my head in the sand.

Fast forward 3 months….

I got over my hurdles (and Maraya kicked my ass) I calmly looked through this course.. I needed help. The help was already here.

This course.

It’s been broken down to work for me and with me. It actually has all the components of how to run a REAL business.  Giving me the knowledge to actually complete some goals and also achieve things like:

A tailored Business Plan

Knowledge of my WordPress website

E marketing strategy

Plan to work for my business

Financial & Risk management plan.


Once I got over the fear of this being more work I can now see how this helps me work smarter.

The added bonus:

Working online at my own pace…

One module at a time.

All online

No one in my ear.

My own Angel to guide me

So it’s 2016. It’s going to my year of knowledge with the help of Business Mamas.  I’m working smarter not harder. I’m also getting to sleep a lot earlier!

2016 I’m going to graduate with a Diploma in Business.
