Note: the point of this post is not to get the response “oh, you’ll be so busy being a mom, you have no idea.” I’m also not trying to offend anyone—so please take the next couple of paragraphs with a grain of salt:
Honestly, I’m nervous about being a stay at home mom. After being either in school and working, or just working full time for years now (almost my whole life, except summers growing up), I’m not sure what people do all day at home. Somehow they fill their days, right? Yes, I know at first I will have the job of food supply, and then I’ll have a toddler running around getting into everything. But, women everywhere are able to work full time jobs and have children that they take home. I want to be a stay at home mom, but I also want something to satiate my need for keeping busy.
Example: On Labor Day, I had gotten all my chores done on the Saturday prior and had nothing to do (except my big list of to-dos that I’m avoiding), and I started wondering what “occupation” (in addition to being a mom) I will have once I’m not working full time anymore.
Wouldn’t it be nice if I could make millions in the process?
Well I’ve been thinking about my friends Jacob and Kalli, who are quite successfully supporting themselves via an internet business. I watched an interview they had recently. You’ll need to watch it to know what I’m talking about: http://www.getrichclick.com/withclickbank/jacob-hiller/?autoplay=1
As Jacob says, “If you have something that you absolutely know will give value, then it’s just a matter of being yourself and telling the truth.” Of course, it has to be something that has a good market to sell, too. I mean, I could be passionate about something like how to pick my nose, but I’m pretty sure there’s not a market for that.
Kalli has been telling me about how great this opportunity is for a while, so I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of something that I am passionate enough about. I’ve realized that I’m a pretty flakey, A.D.D. person who doesn’t really get passionate about one thing. I usually try things and then move on to something else. I could give you dozens of examples.
Let’s leave that subject for a bit, and move on to another: Blogging. There are many people out there these days that make quite a bit by blogging. Again, I don’t think my life is interesting enough to get millions of followers that click on links enough to pay me the big buck$. Here we have the same problem – I don’t have enough passion about one thing. I don’t have something original and fresh to offer the people of the world.
Today, I put a couple of thoughts together and came up with what I have to offer the world! I can also do it while being a stay at home mom quite easily. I’m VERY excited about it, and I can’t wait until I can get it up and running.
No, you can’t know what it is yet! I don’t want people stealing my idea.
