What on earth would compel a busy mum with young kids to start up a business from home?
For me, it’s because I felt a little frustrated and stuck... can anyone relate? 😬
Don’t get me wrong: I am blessed to be a stay at home mum and adore it! My boys are everything to me... 🌎 BUT...
Us mums give up SO much to have our kids: Our bodies, our independence, our careers (to some extent), our moments of quiet and our sleep! To some extent our identity!
YES it’s 1000% worth it, no doubt about it, BUT that doesn’t mean it doesn’t leave you wondering where YOU went.
It can be lonely: Husbands out at work being grown ups whilst you watch Peppa Pig 🐷 and it can also be a little repetitious mentally, as you repeat ‘The wheels on the bus’ for the 20th time that morning.
Also many of us give up our careers, or drop some hours to ensure we can be there for our babies, watch them grow and save the crazy costs of childcare, so we feel the financial pinch!
In addition, we might be feeling like we miss having daily challenges to sink our teeth into and invest in ourselves, to create that sense of achievement!
And what’s more, we miss the monthly deposits in the bank account from the boss man, so we can go treat ourselves ‘cos we earned it and deserve it!
So.... I decided 2 years ago I wanted a bit of ME back! I started up #thebeplan and got to work-and have never looked back!
Is it more juggling? Yes! But then aren’t us mums expert jugglers? 🤡
Is it hard? Yes! If it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be a challenge and give so much sense of achievement!
Is it worth it? OMG YES! Every day... for so many reasons! Especially for the regular monthly income; the knowledge that you’re helping others and making a difference; and also for making yourself (and your babies) proud!
Just goes to show you can be a full time mum to your awesome kids and still go out there and smash it xxx
