Entrepreneurship

I recently had a friend say to me that this is really the time for entrepreneurs to flourish. I cannot agree with her more. I now more than ever desire to be more present with my family. I have a household of seven, and I don’t feel that I can really be present for my family working cooperate hours. I’m so tired of the typical 9-5 plus jobs. Even working from home but answering hundreds of calls during an 8-10 hour shift really is a lot. I would love to work on my own time but still provide for my family.

I’ve gone back and forth with myself for years about whether I truly wanted to be a business owner. I’ve spent most of that time doubting myself. I’ve started and stopped more than a few projects. Sometimes I’ve even been to busy praising the talents of others that I haven’t had time to notice my own. I’m too caught up in that fact that I can’t sew, braid hair, bake, cut grass, or sell anything. Instead I should be focused on what I can do and focused on what I do have that can help me.

I kept saying how I don’t have a hobby or talent than could turn into cash. I have a computer though. I love to read. I love to write. I mange social media accounts for my sisters business, and though its very time consuming I find great joy in just doing the work. I love to email, fax, blog, file paperwork, manage email accounts, type, and research. I do those things often just because. I’m always writing and reading articles. I’ve always considered myself to be what I call “the world greatest secretary”. I used to do paperwork and advertising for my mothers daycare and I loved it. I’ve worked in doctors offices doing administrative work and enjoyed my work load I just wanted out of that profession. Clerical work has always been my specialty. So why not go into business for myself providing that kind of support to other business owners?

R.E.S.P.E.C.T

R- Respect. Demand to be Respected. Don’t let people walk all over you because your trying to be nice. There’s a different between being nice and being foolish. If they’ve shown they don’t respect you, move on. Stop trying to explain to disrespectful people how they should be treating you. They know, they are just choosing not to show you the respect you deserve. So moving forward you don’t need that in your circle.

E- Expectations. Stop Expecting people to do and be something they are not. Just because you expect people to treat you well doesn’t mean they will. You expect that someone you care about would apologize when they’ve hurt you, but expectations can set you up for failures. Learn to separate expectations and reality.

S- Standards. Have Standards, and that goes for anyone, any type of relationships. If you don’t want to deal with people who constantly talk behind your back, talk down about you, never wanna help you, don’t build you up, don’t stick up for you when necessary and dont benefit your life in any way, Dont! Its doesnt matter if their family either. They got to go! I’m not saying be mean, I’m saying know your worth.

P- Presentation. If people Present themselves as fake, believe what you seeing. If they’ve show you they ain’t no good, stop having faith in bad people to do right. Actions always speak louder than words. Observe how people present their true selves. Don’t get hurt because you chose to wear blinders.

E- Effort. If you put forth an Effort to call, text and check on others but they don’t do it for you, pay attention. Its doesn’t have to be 50/50 but 90/10 is not acceptable. Stop making an effort to run yourself in the ground trying to worry about people who are not worried about you.

C- Commitment. Stop Committing yourself to those who would not make those same commitments to you. You’ll find yourself always upset and stating how you continue to do for people what they wouldn’t think to do for you in return. That’s letting people borrow money, baby-sitting their children, giving them rides, being a good listener, etc.

T- Time. Stop trying to delay when someone’s Time is up in your life. Everyone is not meant to go into the next chapter with you and thats okay. If they’ve served their purpose in your life, when its time to let them go, let them go.
