It Takes a Village to Run a Business
By being a mom for ohhhhh so many years already, I have noticed how similar it is between running your own business and being a first time parent. It definitely changes you for the better, but we still end up tackling our own challenges along the way, just as parenting does.
When we first start out, there are so many emotions going through us. We are scared and excited at the same time once we make that commitment. We might have many sleepless nights, and may not know what to do next. Sometimes exhaustion sets in and we need to take short breaks, and other times it’s hard to imagine spending time away from it! We sit there sometimes just gazing at our new blog we created with the help of WA, similar to just sitting there, staring at our newborn’s face. As much as it disturbs your life, it also adds so much improvement to it as well.
Then before you know it, we somehow get through those early stages, but not without help. Our business slowly starts to grow as a child does, one step at a time, and because of the efforts and patience of our hard work, we slowly begin to see the results of our labor. As our business grows, so do we, but there is always a new set of challenges that will always come up! A new set of challenges in our online business growth, once again like raising a child. Not everything will go according to your plan. We’re going to go through burnout, but once again energy hits us, and somehow we find the will to keep on pushing ahead.
The most important thing I learned about being a parent and running an online business:
It takes major patience.
Like a child you are raising, our business needs to be nurtured and developed. Your online business and the blogs you are creating become your baby as well.
They say it takes a village to raise a child! I learned it also takes a village to help run your online business, and that’s what WA does for us. It offers the village by its amazing community, and together we watch each other’s babies grow to maturity and celebrate the first steps together, and the finished product!
Thank you, WA and the great community for all your help along the way!
