Gratefulness in business is what keeps a mompreneur’s life in balance.
Let’s face it- we moms in business have a lot of tasks to accomplish over the course of a day, week, month, quarter, or year. We are busy. We’re busy with business goals, with family life, with personal issues, and financial pressures. In the midst of all of our busy-ness, can we still find the strength to stay grateful?
I’ll tell you who and what I’m grateful for. I’m grateful for the life I’ve been given, grateful for my husband and children who support me in my endeavors.
I’m grateful for opportunity. Here in America we are so blessed to have the opportunity to become entrepreneurs and to make a flexible business opportunity work for us. I know many of you can say the same for Canada or the U.K and other countries around the world. When we realize that although we are the minority (those working for a company vs. those starting our own companies), that we are fortunate to be in this position, we can count our many blessings. The freedom and flexibility that comes with being your own boss is priceless. Yes, hard work and labor ensue once you sign up for this lifestyle, but at this point in my life I don’t think I could trade it in for the 9-5. Been there, done that.
I’m grateful for my clients: people who pay me to help them make their business lives function better online. I love tapping into their dreams and helping them birth their vision into reality.
I’m grateful for health. Without it, what can I do? Nothing. Every day I’m grateful to God for vitamins and supplements, whole foods, and health care when I need it. I appreciate all the many fitness facilities and programs available. (It makes me realize I don’t have an excuse in the world not to work out every week). Without exercise and proper nutrition, we get weak and sick and we don’t have the strength to make wise decisions in business.
So, do you feel that sense of gratefulness in business? How are you grateful?
