Resilience: A key Trait for  The Home Business Owner

 

Do you want to know the most important characteristic you will need to succeed as a Home Business owner?, its one word- Resilience.

Have you been following my posts? I hope you have been getting the inspiration required to make your first move if you want to read the second post, its here.

Today I will be talking about resilience a key trait for a mompreneur, if you are keen on running a home business, you have to be determined to make it happen and not let circumstances deter you. Resilience as defined by psychologytoday “is that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever, rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes”.

This is a basic quality which any woman who seeks to run a home business must possess, because the bad days will come especially in the early days of bootstrapping a business, when the dollars are few and you need every cent you get to invest in your business, sometimes you may have challenges that may make you want to quit or give up, but if you will keep at it, it will start yielding results that are valuable.

Power to Nurture a Home Business

Today I will be talking about our second point, ability to nurture. Nurturing can be defined as tenderly taking care of a thing until its potential abilities come through or growing something to maturity.

In my first post: power to conceive, I talked about the fact that you as a woman has the ability to conceive an Idea and bring it to bear by delivering a solution to a common problem. We all know that the start of a business is just the beginning of a journey, just like a child needs to be tended to and nurtured in other for it to bring forth fruit so does a business.

We as women have that common ability because it’s what we are built for, anyone who has had a child knows what I am talking about, no matter how many books you have read before you birth a child, you are never still prepared for the curve balls that come your way when that child is born and you begin to care and nurture it to grow.

We find that sometimes even proven concepts cannot be relied on, yet we still get to do a good job by following our inner intuitions. I believe that you can apply the same concept when nurturing a business, you can read up all the books and do the research as you need to , but sometimes, you have to rely on your gut feeling to pilot your business to where it needs to go to even when it looks like it’s not the right direction. That’s because God has placed such capabilities within us to be able to discern the right direction to follow.

Nurturing a business requires lots of patience and care, we are not lacking in both as they are the daily requirements for a mother who is bringing up her kids, you have to be consistent in teaching and correcting until the right habit is formed. The same applies to our business, oftentimes not all businesses take off to roaring success when you begin, but we have to be willing to put in what it takes to see it come to pass.

For instance when I started My Training Company: Laplace Knowledge Academy. I had done all I knew by assembling my course materials, putting out the adverts and also informing others about the training day, all I wanted was a class of 10 people because Continue reading “Nurturing a Home Business”
