When you think about starting your own business you inevitably go through all the pros and cons in your head. Running a WAHM Business Can Be Lonely.
|You get to set your own hours.||You will be working during ‘personal’ time.|
|You get to make all of the rules.||Making mistakes along the way will cost you time/money.|
|Get to stay home with the kids.||You get to stay at home with the kids when they are sick/tired/cranky.|
|You get to make some extra money.||It make take awhile to get your return on investment.|
|Doing what you love.||Very risky, most small businesses fail.|
When I started my business I was sure I thought through all of the pros/cons of opening a WAHM (work-at-home-mom) company. I did not consider one thing.
Running a WAHM business can be lonely
Don’t get me wrong I *heart* running my own business but it can be lonesome sitting hours upon hours on the computer by myself. I have the baby with me all day and my partner is home at night, I am never physically alone. However, it is my business and I am the one running it.
I am the one responding to customers and fulfilling orders.
I am the one developing the website and frantically trying to fix the mistakes I make.
I am the one updating all of the social media channels throughout the day and writing blog posts.
I would not change running my own business for anything in the world, but man can it get lonely sometimes.
