Last October, I jumped on a fitness journey. It was what I needed. Something that was JUST FOR ME. As a SAHM of 11 years, I had lost myself and needed to find my way back.
To hold myself more accountable, and have the ability to help other women in the same predicament, I dove in as a coach and the CEO of my start-up, home-based business. Today, there are 49 women in my online fitness group who rally, push and motivate each other one workout, one glass of water, one meal, one superfood shake...one day at a time. They are my Fit Fam and without them, I probably would have given up too. But that is the subject for another post.
For tonight, I just wanted to say that there are countless other moms out there like me who are starting their own home-based businesses so they can reduce their work hours outside of home, retire from their full time jobs, retire their husbands and bring them home, or continue to stay at home with their kids. I belong to the last group. I WILL continue to stay home with my kids, earn enough to travel every year, and retire my husband. LET ME TELL YOU THAT IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE. It happens everytime, in fact.
But it takes a whole lot of work, early mornings and late nights...years of doing this to succeed. It takes guts, courage, hustle, heart and BALLS to invite YOU to take a look at what we have to offer. That messenger text or voice mail you got? She debated on whether or not to hit send for at least 5 minutes. She doesn't take it lightly that you may ignore her or block her. But she does it anyway.
So the next time you decide to give more of your money to the big stores, chains and gyms....think of the mom who only wants to earn money while staying home with her kids. Think of the mom who is hoping to find herself again and prove to herself that she can succeed at something else outside of being a mom. Think of her dreams for herself and her family, and then put yourself in her shoes. You are no different from her. We all have the same aspirations.
You don't have to buy from her if she doesn't offer anything that you need. But if she does, oh if she does, momma....give her a fighting chance at fulfilling her dream. I just did. ❤
