At the risk of sounding somewhat philosophical, life always has a way of preparing us. Obstacles we face are truly lessons in disguise and those who are open and ready to learn from the life lessons and expand their being.
The cumulative effect of these lessons allows an individual to tackle larger tasks and be successful with them. In the world of entrepreneurship, if you approach it with the mindset you know all you need to know and are not receptive to learning, you will fail. Not to sound too harsh but if you close your mind, you close your business.
Thinking with an open mind, what can prepare you for being an entrepreneur, keep you under constant deadlines, make you multi-task, drive you almost to the edge of insanity yet . . . you come back for more every day because of your love and passion? Raising a family!
It is remarkable how many similarities raising a family has to run a business. With the customers being your family members and the product you are selling is life, there are skills honed in the activity of keeping it all together.
Single Mom Entrepreneurs are Powerful
For single moms or dads, these skills are put to the test as they are solely responsible for the family, with no one to help shoulder the load. In many cases, these single parents will limit themselves by having the belief they are not capable of doing anything outside the norm. Their current schedules and lifestyle do not allow them to build a business they always dreamed about, that hand was never dealt with them in the game of life to play.
It’s unfortunate, as it is there a mindset that restricts them not their situation. While there may be some who will balk at that idea because we don’t know your situation. Clearly agreed, no one knows your situation like you, but again your mindset will allow you to turn the impossible into possible.
