My leap from Employee to Entrepreneur
Updated: Apr 18, 2022
One of the most difficult things I've done to date, is shift from Employee to Entrepreneur.
From when I was a little girl, I ALWAYS KNEW knew I wanted to have my own business. It started by mixing talc powder and water and doing my own show (to my mirror!) pretending I was one of those 'glamorous' TV sales people.
Then I learnt how to sew and knit (thanks Nanna!) and make friendship bracelets and thought I'd be really good at having a stall at markets. (to be honest, the hourly rate was pretty low, and I got bored).
Then a few years later (and a few more), several business later, I found myself feeling a bit lost, 4 kids deep, and the realisation that infact being a 9-5 working mum AND showing up for all the Mummy stuff wasn’t a match made in heaven.
It was about 6 weeks into be a mother of 4 that I KNEW I needed a better option. One that allowed me the creative freedom to do my thing AND also be able to be flexible for the kids.
That’s also the same time Made For More was born (always knew I’d have 5 babies). To say it’s been a ride would be an understatement, but it’s the bestest, funnest, most challenging-est thing I’ve ever done!
Just last week I got to juggle (read: blend) a speaking gig, running my leadership workshop AND go on a school excursion for my first born (because #streetcred). All of this was only possible because I took the leap from Employee to Entrepreneur. Felt the fear and did it anyway.
I know so many of you on here have been following my journey (thank you for your support). My friend is running a webinar tomorrow about making the jump/leap/’start the car’, I think you’d really like it.
If you're looking to make the leap as well, check out Business Success Academy - Working with Samantha Riley, has been an absolute game changer for me and my busienss.
