Believe me, in case you’re new to being the entrepreneurial mother®, or aspiring to be more of one, the one thing that may be holding you back right now I suspect is a form of fear! It’s OK, and quite normal…which is why I’m here.

I’m sure I don’t need to remind you that you potentially run the risk of not doing what you want to do, if you’re either too fearful and/or not confident enough to believe you can. It doesn’t have to be that way. YOU CAN DO THIS…and I’m here to help you every step of the way.

Here’s the thing…
as Leslie Bennetts– author of theThe Feminine Mistake says:

”The promise of the fairy tale – that Prince Charming marries you and takes care of you forever – usually remains far more powerful than the realities women see all around them.No matter what catastrophes befall their friends, sisters or neighbours, the lure of dependency keeps them mesmerised by a mythology that no dose of reality could break its hold on true believers – at least until such shocks are visited upon them personally.So the main thing I want to say to other women is this: PROTECT YOURSELF.Given the likelihood that you will have to fend for yourself (and even your children) at some point in the future, maintain the capacity to support yourself.Protect your children by making sure you can support them financially should anything happen to you, or their other parent.Protect your future happiness against the doubts harboured by frustrated stay-at-home mothers who can’t shake the guilt and regret they feel about failing to explore their full potential.Protect yourself against the desolation of the empty nest, which inflicts the deepest sense of loss on full-time mothers with no other identity to sustain them.Protect yourself against the feelings of uselessness and isolation experienced by so many women who didn’t cultivate meaningful work that would nourish them in later years. You’ll be glad you did.”


Cheers
