This Mum Entrepreneur business is tough but it is so important to celebrate success, our own success but also those mums around us. Everyone success is different, it set by what you want for you and your business. We all know that it is hard work and there will be sacrifices to be made along the way. Its important to keep checking in with yourself, making sure you are alright, you are taking care of yourself and that you are in the right frame of mind.

Grab a cuppa, your favourite journal or notebook and let’s get started!
Step 1 – Let’s review this year!
You maybe thinking, but wait Claire, we’re meant to be planning for next year?! Well doing a review of what you have achieved this year is a really great start!
Answer the following questions:
Reflect on these answers and give yourself a pat on the back! Chances are you have done so much more than you thought you did.
Now on to the next step….
Step 2 – Write down what your big dream goal is?
What is the big dream that you have – write this down.
Step 3 – What is your mission for your business?
For example: You may want to help mums who are struggling with mummy guilt – get rid of this guilt so they can have a happy and healthy work life balance.
Look at the reasons, your big why in your business. Write this down. 🙂
Step 4 – What products or services do you want to offer next year?
Write out your list of products and services. Include in your list what each package or product includes and the price point you want to sell it at. Include the date you want to launch if it is a new product or service.
Step 5 – What is your revenue goal?
For example: A target of $10k/month
You will need to sell 10 x $1k packages
Or 20 x $500 packages
Or 100 x $100 products
It is important to know your goals, so you can work out a plan to achieve them!
Now pop back next week as we will work on creating a marketing plan so you can achieve your goals!
Here’s to an amazing 2017!
When going back to work, well starting my first business Mansell Taylor Consulting I struggled with Mummy Guilt. My daughter was 4 months old when I set up the business and I had not thought about how much energy and time is was going to take, especially being in a client facing role. Every time I left her to go to meetings, which could take anywhere from 2- 4 hours it was heart-breaking. I would second guess myself all the time.
“ should I really be doing this? I am meant to be a mom, does that mean I should be with her all day”
“what if she needs me and I am not there”
“what happens if something happens to her, not being in my care”
“ is it best to work while she is little and then take time off when she is at school”
I am not sure if you have had any of these thoughts, but it is hard, well I found it hard. Now 3.5 years later and child number 2, its easier and I am certain about the choices I make.
For this reason I thought it would be great to have an expert in MUMMY GUILT on the Power Session Show:
These 3 Tips will hopefully help you with some peace of mind. I know I need to constantly work at it.

I am sure you have been in a position, or are in the position now where you are doing so much and getting little return. You are doing everything the experts tell you, but its not working, whats wrong?
This is what you have probably heard:
So I just want to back up here a little bit….. WHY DID YOU START YOUR BUSINESS???
Absolutely NO WAY!
It’s great to listen to what the experts say as they have made it already and know what they are talking about, BUT you are not them. You are a mum and FAMILY COMES FIRST ALWAYS. You do things different and you do it YOUR WAY.
Go back to the reason WHY your started your business, what is important to you. Look at the way you are spending your time, is it what you envisioned? I am not saying don’t work at all, all I am saying is have some structured business hours, some boundaries and make sure you are action orientated and result driven in those hours. I know it works, as I have done it already.
Keep the passion and LOVE your biz life!

We all get those low energy spells which you can never explain. It could be you had a bad experience with a client, you are spending your day doing something you are not passionate about, you are procrastinating, associating with the wrong kind of people (the ones that sap you of your energy)…. Whatever it is we all experience it, sometimes once a day once a week or even a month….. it happens. It especially happens to BIZ Mums as we are trying to BE ALL and DO ALL.
