Over the years as a stay at home mom, I've tried lots of business ideas. I've come to realize that many moms do. We want it all! We want to have the flexibility to be there for our kids all while being able to help contribute financially to the household. The problem is that sometimes the timing or the idea is just not right and so we get frustrated and lose confidence in ourselves! Most of my businesses never got past the idea stage. A few got somewhat further...basically I would spend some money on whatever project or website idea I had and then -failure!
I can honestly say this is the first business I've ever had that has made money, has lasted this long, and that I still enjoy 7 months later which is a record for me! It's not really that I'm a quitter. I graduated from college, I'm raising three kids, and I've been married to the same man for over 22 years so I'm no quitter. I think all of the business failures taught me skills or lessons along the way that I needed for this business but also I think this business is working because I'm really being true to myself.
In the past when I tried things, I wasn't really sold myself so how in the world could I ever find success? As this little business grows, I constantly find myself beginning to stray in one direction or another and I have to remind myself to stay focused and make choices that I believe in 100%!
I feel very fortunate to have something that allows me to be creative and gives me purpose, all while I continue being the wife and mom that I want to be!
I've got lots of ideas and plans for In A Pinch and I look forward to see what the future brings!
