Are you a woman who has ever thought of working from home? I mean the kind of job that you can really enjoy....Where you have time to meet a friend for lunch, pick up the kids from school, and still have all-important time to pamper yourself.
If you have ever contemplated this, let me tell you, your idea is not childish. It is worth not only dreaming about, but also doing something about, even if it is in your spare time until you build a following.
Through blogging, I found that women are making money by sharing their ideas in the form of hand-created treasures and even information. Yes, if you have some valuable information to impart to others, believe me, there are many women who could benefit from your knowledge.
So, if this sounds like the type of day you would like to have, let’s start at the beginning to get you living that lifestyle:
First, what are you good at? What is your special gift?
Do you have a circle of friends who can “spread the word” on social media?
Have you started a blog and built a following?
These are all important aspects to consider. Why? Because they can be a valuable in getting your business “out there.”
Today, word of what you do can spread like wildfire through the Internet. I'll tell you a true story about a woman who built a business even before the Internet existed.
I once knew a woman who loved folk dancing. Her children were grown and she had never worked outside of her home. She had some music on tapes that she loved to dance to. She called a local recreation center and arranged to give folk dancing classes. All she brought were those tapes and a cassette player. She had classes several days a week.
But, that’s not all. In addition, she loved to travel, particularly on cruises. So, she arranged cruises for her dancers. She arranged a few a year. And the best part? She taught dancing to them once a day on the cruise ship AND her trip was paid for because she brought those ladies with her!
The bottom line? She got paid for doing what she loved best. Can you imagine how much bigger her business would have grown if she had a blog where those same women--and others--could have visited? Their friends and friends of their friends could have joined in the fun too!
Women are creative. Women are resilient. Women are nurturers. Women are inspirational.
If you want to start on this journey, just “put it out there” and see how it grows. Blogging itself can bring you money too. You can show pictures of your favorite hobbies on your blog and monetize it--easy, peasy!
I have 2 brand-new ebooks available through Amazon. They offer practical advice and are non-techie.
They can help you on your blogging journey in terms of content, what to write about, how to get a following, etc.
Don’t give up on your dream. I believe that God put it in your heart for a reason.
