Being a work at home mom has lots of advantages and plenty of benefits. But it can be rough, you know? You can become discouraged. You might feel lonely. You may question the decision you’ve made to make a change. Perhaps you’re having a day where you just want someone else to tell you what to do. Or any one of an unlimited number of other scenarios, all of them dragging you down.
Which is why it is important to surround yourself with encouraging people. As a work at home mom, you need a support team that will encourage and inspire you. People who will help you remember those advantages and benefits of your situation, when the going gets rough.
I’m blessed to have encouraging people inherent in my home-based business model, as I am in business for myself as a work at home mom, but not by myself. My business support “team” is all things encouraging. Other places to find encouraging people: trusted family members and friends, blogs like this (!), business networking groups, other work at home moms in your community. They’re out there — persevere until you have found encouraging people with whom to surround yourself. And stay connected to them in order to keep the encouragement flowing! It will help you succeed as a work at home mom.
