How to Build a Business and Raise a Family as a Young Woman #motownmom #planprayparent

How do female entrepreneurs make it? How do they succeed? And more importantly, how do they successfully build a family and a business at the same time?

This piece is a special one – one that’s more personal than business. I hope it will provide some insight into the dedication that goes into growing a business and balancing personal growth at the same.

It comes down to four major components: time management, passion, a vision, and some AWESOME team members.

But to understand how I got to where I am now, I need to take you back to the beginning.

#MotownMom: 7 Ways to Turn Your Passion Into a Side Hustle

 

Becoming an entrepreneur is a dream many people have, but often the fear of leaving a steady salary keeps people from pulling the trigger.

In reality, running a small business doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing thing. By starting your company as a side hustle while you continue to work your 9-to-5 and earn a paycheck, you take most of the risk out of being an entrepreneur. You also get the opportunity to test out your idea to see if it could sustain you full-time financially.

If you do decide to launch a side hustle, you’re not alone. In fact, 37% of Americans have a side hustle that brings in an extra stream of income. Whether you plan to grow the business over time or simply add money to your wallet, start small and grow as you’re ready.
