When I decided to return to work in 2010 it was because I had to. We had experienced a perfect financial storm and our family needed a second income. I decided at that time that I wanted to do something important, meaningful, and make a positive difference in the world, while maintaining my ability to be present for my children before 9 and after 2.
And after a few years in business I discovered that as a solopreneur and mom of four in order to fulfill my desire to create success without giving up mothering I must become ultra productive.
The same would be true for someone who wants to build a business and then leave your corporate job.
Here’s the deal ~

And, as it turns out, I will only succeed in business if I do 2 things.
1. Simplify my life and biz as much as possible, as much as possible.
2. Offer high value services and create maximum results and impact in minimum time.
So I have honed and simplified my business model so much that I only offer 3 services:
Private Coaching, Retreats, and Group Programs.
And I do the same thing in each one, simply at different levels of support and investment.
The purpose of these services is twofold – to do the work I love while making a positive impact in the lives of other women, and to generate profits to support my family and re-invest in building the business.
I am in the process of creating multiple streams of passive income including a book, an affirmation deck, an invention, and a signature program. That program will be an information product called The 12 Hour Work Week – Productivity Hacks for Women Who Want to Work Less, Earn More, and Play More. Because I have learned that passive income is crucial to establishing financial freedom. And I am excited that I am creating it now.
But it takes time and money to create those products.
So here is what I offer in the mean time to be ultra productive and profitable, creating the cashflow I need to support my family and build the business, while parenting:
Yep! Group programs.
This week I received a question from a friend and colleague on this hot topic and I wanted to share it with you today. Because usually when I am asked a question there are others inside my circle of influence who have the same question.
