Another great week, another great story coming your way! We recently chatted with Stacy, who gave us the inside scoop on how she overcomes any obstacle and she gives us her reasons for building a career with Moms Making Six Figures!
Was there ever a time that you doubted your choice to change careers and join MMSF? If so, how did you work through those feelings to get where you are today?
There are always times when I question or second guess my choice to build a career here because like anything in life, it is not always easy. That said, the doubts are typically short lived as I always go back to remembering the amazing foundation I must work with here in terms of the company, the team, and the flexibility. I know from personal experience in previous careers that working with Moms Making Six Figures truly is a one of a kind opportunity and I won’t be able to find that amazing combination elsewhere.
What is your “why” with MMSF and has it changed at all over time?
To be the one who takes my kids to school and picks them up every day so that they aren’t raised by aftercare programs or other people. Since that has now been the case for 8 years, it has evolved a bit to also help others realize that same amazing lifestyle.
What is the best piece of advice you have been given (so far) as an entrepreneur?
Treat your business like a business that has an open and closed sign that you hang on the door. This will ensure you work enough hours to produce the results you want but will also ensure you turn work “off” from time to time, to have the family time and work life balance you were searching for in the first place. As an entrepreneur, it can be easy to get into a mode where you are “thinking” about work all the time, but never truly doing the income producing activities or never truly taking time off from that thinking to enjoy your life!
Stacy broughtup a very important point during this conversation. Managing your time is crucial as an entrepreneur. Getting caught up in the cycle of working too much, or not enough can have a negative impact on the quality of your life. Like Stacy, you must find your “why,” make a realistic plan, and go for it. There will be highs and lows along the way, but the journey to a life of freedom and flexibility is worth it.
