What Is It With The Word “Just”?

Based on a Networking Event last night and another this morning, why is that many Women Business Owners think so small? What is it with the word “just”? “Just thought I’d start ______ and see how it goes.” “Just trying ________ for the moment, you never know” “Just me running ________ at present and hope to one day make it bigger” Yes, they’ve all heard of “Start With The End In Mind” but quite honestly, does it really apply to them? Yet? But how? Here’s the thing… do what Seth Godin suggests and DO it anyway, “Start the Journey Before…

Motherhood or Business Ownership

After two meetings today and another phone call last Friday, the prospect of the motherhood and business ownership combination is causing some angst. The main issue seems to be for those women business owners who are currently in business and are either planning to have a family soon or have just had their first. They want to be able to have the combination work but just can’t seem to see how. The thought of having someone else brought in not look after their business is too much to bear. And, the thought of trying to run it full time as…

Want to be your Own Boss? a Women Business Owner?

This time last year, the Australian Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AWCCI) conducted the first national survey of female business owners, featuring results from some 3000 women. I thought it opportune to revisit their findings as I suspect not too much has changed in 12 months… Women own almost 40% of small businesses in Australia there are more than 700,000 female-owned businesses Women’s superannuation funds and income are lower 24% of female business owners work 41-50 hours per week, 20% work up to 70 hours 76% work Saturdays, 64% work Sundays 17% have a turnover of $100,000-$250,000 per year 71% are running their first business…

Struggle is the human condition; Hope is the human spirit…

“Just about everyone you come across today is going through some kind of struggle in their lives. Most people bear such a heavy burden, quietly and alone, so focused on making sure it looks like they have everything under control that they forget they don’t have to have it all under control, and they certainly don’t have to walk their road alone. That there is hope and help, if they would only look for it. You’re probably going through a struggle right now, even as you read this.” By Nate St. Pierre for ChangeThis.com

“The World Needs Female Entrepreneurs Now More Than Ever”…

Indeedy, it does! The key point I’d like to point out in this fine article is this: Becoming an Entrepreneur does not require any shifts in corporate culture. In fact, becoming a Business Owner does not require changing any societal norms at all. It does require however a distinct shift in your own internal thinking in combination with your family’s particular circumstances. So… why not be opportunistic and bold in 2012, and become a “3%” member? (refer last post) You can always tap into the entrepreneurial mothers group if you need support…

Join my “Mothers Group” – Viv did and look what’s happened…

As Viv has discovered, there’s a lot more to being a successful Mother and building a Mother of a Business than just dreaming about it every day.   It’s about behaving in a manner which builds a genuine business. It’s about having the confidence to do whatever you dream of achieving. And most of all it’s about Mothering as you want PLUS earn what you need to earn (and a whole lot more!). Viv McDonald is going places with “The Web of Wheels” So much so, she featured on p21 of the recent Green Guide in The Age newspaper. Viv came…
