Step 1 To Becoming A Mompreneur: Change Your Mind

You must change your mindset NOW!  You have to believe not only in yourself and your abilities but that working from home successfully and raising your children CAN be done.  If family or friends tell you that you are crazy or they give you 100 reasons why you cannot be a stay at home mom and make money from home, do not listen.  Surrounding yourself with people who are supportive and believe in you is vital in being a successful person in general.  Perhaps it's time to take inventory of those people in your life who only know how to criticize and spew negativity.

Homework:  What?  You didn't know there would be homework?  Relax, it's an easy assignment.  I want you to find 5 minutes of quiet, alone time. I realize that I may be asking the impossible here, but just try.  If you have to lock yourself in the bathroom for five minuets, do it.  Next I want you to visualize yourself being a stay at home mom and working from home.  Visualize as many details of it as you possibly can.

You should really do this at least once a day for the next two weeks.  Believe it or not, you may unconsciously have the mindset of a person who believes that they will never be successful in their own ventures.  Many of us grew up with both parents working outside the home or with our moms who stayed home and cooked and did laundry all day.  There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, however, it can lead you to believe subconsciously that that's what we're supposed to do and that's the only way to support our families.  Your thoughts and beliefs play a very important role in what we are able to accomplish in our lives.  Our thoughts and beliefs can either propel us forward or hold us back.
