This week we talked with Katie! She used to run an in-home daycare and knew working for herself was the right fit for her life. With Moms Making Six Figures, Katie has the freedom to work for herself, put family first and earn an income. We hope you enjoy her story as much as we did!
How did you find MMSF and were you skeptical to seek more information? What ended up being the deciding factor for you to join the team?
I was introduced to the Moms Making Six Figures Team through an acquaintance on Facebook. She invited me to learn more about a referral program and it honestly sounded too good to be true.
My friend invited me to an event where I could learn more, and I realized this team could be perfect fit for me. I was excited to change my family member’s lives! Not to mention, I could also help other women to change their family’s lives, too. Joining the team was a no-brainer!
How do you decide how much time to give to your business each week?
It depends on what is happening in my kids’ lives. I have a 6-year-old son and 7 1/2-year-old daughter. I am room mom for both classes, on the PTA Board, at every ballet class and I substitute teach a few days a week.
I love that I can schedule my hours around my kids. I used to run an in-home daycare. I opened it when my daughter was born, and I have worked for myself ever since. I cannot imagine going back to an 8-4pm, 5 day a week schedule. I love not having to ask permission for time off if my kids are sick, have a special event at school, or need me for any reason.
Yes, doubts creep in regularly. Working for yourself isn’t easy, but SO worth it. If it weren’t for the incredible leaders on the team I probably would have given up on myself and my dreams.
