What's on the other side of decision

August 2010. Working my network marketing business with my 4 1/2 week old baby Ryan. 

I’ve been there. 

I started my Network Marketing business a few weeks into my maternity leave from my graphic design job. I was a new momma bear of THREE littles under 8. Perfect timing... NOT.

I had no idea what I was doing really, and have very little time to invest in my business, even though being on maternity leave seems like I'd have all the time in the world... you don't. Brand new babies are a LOT of work.

I knew that going into it, but I caught a vision of what was possible for my family (quitting my 9-5 job, having more family income and all by using and sharing products I loved with the world) and DECIDED it was important enough for me to give it everything I had and GO FOR IT.  

SO many times I could have made excuses, said I was tired, couldn’t leave the baby to be at a meeting, or be on the calls, but I didn’t. I had made a decision and was becoming super focused on making that vision a reality. 

Instead of giving in to resistance, and there was a ton, I figured it out, I sacrificed and worked tired to make those goals happen and it literally changed the course of my life for the better. It wasn’t easy, but it was so worth it.

Today, I enjoy the freedom of being an entrepreneur and have done so for 8 years. I never went back to my full-time job. Those short-term sacrifices I made back when I started have brought me that last 8 summers home with my kids, always being there for school trips, pickups and drop-offs, waking up when I choose, planning my days and never having to ASK for vacation. It’s been worth every moment, the good ones and the bad ones… and trust me there have been lots of both. 

But starting this little side gig 8 years ago has given me so much more than just time and money, it’s given me massive growth.

As humans, we LIVE for growth, expansion, and change. It’s what we need in order to prosper in life. Network Marketing, or being an entrepreneur of any kind is constantly challenging you to grow and learn. Once you figure it out, you’ll get another vision, challenge or curveball that will require you to grow again. The growth doesn’t end unless you stop. 

I share this with you because I know so many of you are where I was in this photo. 

New to business, trying to figure it all out? My advice… DECIDE today that you want more, that you want to grow and that you are ready for the challenge. To not let the obstacles and excuses that can so easily crop up stop you. Stopping is the only sure fire way to fail.

By making the decision to take action on your dreams and sticking to it UNTIL will reward you in so many ways you can’t even imagine. But here's the secret... you have to get super focused, obsessed really with what you want. Think about it daily, take action and use your internal compass to guide you. That's what I did. I knew I was on the right path because the work felt good, I'm happy doing it and it excites me.  My 9 to 5 job did NONE of that. 

I’m not the same person that I was in this photo and that has been the biggest gift of all. I am a more confident, authentic, person with an unshakeable belief that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. And all that because I made the decision to GO FOR IT 8 years ago. 

What’s waiting for you on the other side of decision?
