Solavei helping Mom’s with Problems

Posted

“Mama, we’ve got a problem.” That’s a play on the famous “Houston, we’ve got a problem,” which refers to the 1970 flight of Apollo 13. About 56 hours into the mission, an oxygen tank blew up, knocking out the command module’s electricity, lights and water supply. Astronaut James Lovell told mission control about the problem, adding that oxygen was escaping from the spacecraft. The mission suddenly changed from landing on the moon to getting the astronauts back alive. The crew and mission control got extremely creative about doing what seemed impossible: getting the men home safely. Teamwork, creativity and determination were in full drive. It was their commitment to success, the belief that failure was not an option, that guided the men safely home.

Why am I sharing this bit of history in reference to being a mompreneur? Because when faced with an obstacle, you need the same drive and determination to succeed. When I started Stroller Strides, failure was not an option. It was my only chance to be home with my baby rather than go back to work at a traditional full-time job. I was determined to do anything I had to do to succeed. I created a business plan, not for any investor, but for myself and my husband. I needed to prove this could work. I had the attitude that no matter what obstacle got in my way (and plenty of them did), I could find a way around it, over it or under it. But I was going to make it to the other side. I knew it would be very painful for me to be away from my baby for 10 hours a day, and I was very aware of the pleasure I got from working from home and bringing him to work with me.

Moms, go into business knowing you will experience challenges. Challenges will sometimes seem impossible to overcome. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. I love reading about other entrepreneurs who have turned failure into success.

Did you know that Mickey Mouse was only created after Walt Disney lost the rights to his pride-and-joy character, Oswald The Lucky Rabbit? Remember, Disney was the one who said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” Did you know that Thomas Edison’s light bulb failed some 2,000 times before he got one to work? When asked how many times he was going to fail, he responded, “I haven’t failed! I’ve simply discovered another way not to invent the light bulb.” Did you know that Mary Kay Ash was told by her business consultants that her model would never work and that she should shut down before she went bankrupt? Her quote: “Every failure, obstacle or hardship is an opportunity in disguise. Success in many cases is failure turned inside out.”

In a nut shell we can see how being a mom and an entrepreneur is a hard but viable thing to do.  When you find an easier path then the normal MLM business that you have to keep buying product and product then your on the right track.  What about making money from your current cell phone?  Yes, what if you could make money from your cell phone?  There is a cell phone company that pays its users to share about their service.  There are many users making over $1,000 every month from their cell phone.  If you would like to make money from you cell phone then you should watch these videos.
