Sending a shout out to all of my people and some real encouragement to answer your big “WHY”. If you are an entrepreneur there are going to be times when you “just don't feel like” doing something that needs to be done!
I sincerely doubt that any of us completely escape this type of scenario. Let's face it. There are just some tasks that don't, in and of themselves, motivate us very much at all. It's for times like these that you need to be able to refer to your “WHY.” You need to be able to quickly access the motivation that comes from your primary reason to have started the journey of being an entrepreneur in the beginning. You need that driving force that comes from being connected to your passionate reason for leaving behind the false security of a J.O.B. and venturing into the unknown to find the path of lifestyle freedom. If successful, your dream will take you steadily on to financial freedom, without having to sacrifice 50 or more hours/week away from your family and those that you love to keep bringing home a paycheck.
Not everyone can live this life. For some of us, the lifestyle comes as an encore career when we can better afford to take that kind of risk. That is how I came to be on this path. For 30 years I was a Cardiovascular Registered Nurse and loved doing what I did. Being a single parent, I likely wouldn't have risked taking this big a leap of faith until my son had successfully found his own wings. For all those years, I loved my career and did well at it.
When that was no longer possible for me, and once my son was successfully launched, I came across a splendid business opportunity and jumped right in. Take a look at my website if you are a complete newbie to business start up and internet marketing as I was, because that is our specialty! You can take a look right HERE.

During my early months as an entrepreneur, I had no back up income at all. Living off savings, but with time on my hands, I struggled to learn how to integrate different systems and platforms, to get things set up and ready to go. Because of that, I've learned how to help other newbies get started.
My big “WHY” drives me forward and keeps me going when the going gets tough, so make sure that you are clear about what can get you to pick yourself up if you get knocked down, because it's inevitable that at some point you will. Getting knocked down is not failure. It's not getting back up, not having a big enough driving reason, that leads to failure.
As long as you get back up, even when it is less than convenient, hold on to your dream, and focus on your “WHY”, YOU CAN SUCCEED!
