Why I Started My Business

Someone asked me a question about why I wanted to start my business. I couldn’t answer the question at the time in a way that sounded even remotely plausible. It sounded like I did not believe in myself and what I could achieve.
THEN, after not consciously thinking about it during the day, I had an epiphany and realised that I knew the answer all along.
I wanted to start this business because I am passionate about helping others and because, after owning a busy retail food business for 10 years and struggling through some very difficult circumstances, I wanted to help others from making the mistakes I did.
The mistakes of working IN my business doing all those horrible admin tasks; payroll, BAS, writing policies and procedures, making flyers, business cards, etc., and not having a Business Plan, Marketing Plan, or Financial Plan.
Along with working part-time in the business, going to TAFE (twice), working full time (for nine years) outside the business in paid employment, and trying to raise three children (when I had the time to be with them), and raise a husband, I had no work/life balance. I became burnt out. I hardly saw my children, very little time for me. had very few breaks away; as in holidays; and my family suffered.
So here I am today giving you the opportunity to get your work/life balance right. Your ‘ducks in a row’.
So, let me ask you:
Isn’t working ON your business; as in networking and marketing; more appealing than that horrible admin work?
Wouldn’t spending time with your family and loved ones be better than doing all those mundane admin tasks?
