Thank you, Chris, for revisiting this thread and sharing your insight. Thanks, also, for your input JayDee and ThinkCanvas. I love the thought of the WAHMs support group.
Yes, it is difficult to have a serious business with everything else I have going on. However, the time that I do take to put into the business is serious time for me and usually brings serious results. It`s just that I know that the business could be doing so much more. And, I don`t mean just in gift baskets. I`ve been an entreprenuer since 7th grade. My mom said that she didn`t have enough money for me to go with a group of others on a trip to Great America. I went knocking on the doors of our neighbors to ask if I could wash their car for one dollar. I made enough to go to Great America but decided that I would save my money instead. But, that was the start of the entreprenuerial juices to flowing and they`ve been flowing every since. I`ve had many successful ventures over the years. And, my current business meets my definition of a serious business that is successful. However, as all entreprenuers know, WE CAN NEVER SIT STILL. But, at this time, other responsibilities force me, not to sit still, but to go real slow.
I often see the many programs, contests and events going on at StartupNation and I want to participate, respond, commend, advise and ask. But, as I said, other responsibilities force my hand in other directions. And then, when I do get a moment, I have to tend to running my business or maybe getting some sleep.
Believe me, my husband and children and my business barely touch the iceberg of the demands on my time. So, while I may not be able to participate, respond, commend, advise and ask, I am an avid reader. I read your threads, success stories, challenges and what`s going on at StartupNation and I am silently inspired and encouraged.
Just call me the momprenuer tortoise, moving very slow but never stopping.
What is life without giving!
