Being self-employed and running your own business (as well as being a full time mum) is hard work and long hours, lots of highs and lows, but I wouldn’t change it. I am lucky enough to work from home, with my own studio in the garden and can come and go as I please. It gives me the flexibility of looking after my four year old.
I also live in a rural location, so can work all week without seeing anyone, so it is also important to network/meet with like-minded folk, just to have some adult conversation and share experiences. I belong to a business womens club and networking group and it does help.
I hope you enjoyed reading all about Lazy Daisy Glass and hope you can take some of this information and adopt in to your own business. Thank you for reading!
I think that finding a business, as i have, and developing it organically is far more rewarding and enjoyable than working for anyone else, or even just running a business with small margins, heavy bills etc. To have an online store that you pay for as you use, and even then only a small amount, is far preferable. There are no massive bills waiting to scare me to death, and the payments are instant and secure, so no manual invoicing, chasing for money or any of the other time consuming aspects of a business.
I love it.
