That 20 minute ride to work that just took you 45 minutes may have gotten you thinking about how nice it would be to work from home!
That co-worker who has been rude one too many times may be making you think about how much more positive your life would be if you never crossed paths again.
That last round of job eliminations that has you now doing the work of 4 employees WITHOUT a pay raise may be putting a strain on your personal life.
Not having had a pay raise in the last few years is making you ask, "should I look for something else, or stay here where at least I know how much money I will receive every week".
Since your last birthday you have been evaluating why you are working to create someone else's dream while putting yours on hold has got you frustrated.
Having to miss yet another special event at your child's school because your boss would not let you leave the office has you feeling like you are missing out on the milestones in your child's life!
Many women have been dealing with these conflicting emotions and made the decision to leave the corporate world behind to become their own boss but how do you know if you are ready to make that dream a reality?
If you are one of the thousands of women who are self-employed or thinking about being self-employed it is important to know what you are truly passionate about so that with all of the ups and downs of being self employed, you will be working at something you love!
KNOW YOUR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES: If you know nothing about networking, building your website, social media or even how your tax bracket will change; these are areas that you will want to investigate before you make the leap to self-employment.
MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THE NUMBERS: what is the absolute minimum you can afford to live on while you are creating success within your company?
CREATE YOUR MISSION STATEMENT: It is important that you create and KNOW your Mission Statement. Your Mission Statement is comparable to the destination you have in mind when you drive your car. Without it, you will be wandering aimlessly while you try to figure out where you are going and how you are going to get there.
INVEST IN YOURSELF: Remember, YOU are your business! With that simple statement in mind, how are you investing in YOU? Your vision, values, image and how you make a "first impression" are important to your success.
Remember: whether you think you can, or think you can't... you are probably right. ~ Henry Ford
