Since 2005 I’ve been a Mom Entrepreneur and nothing prepared me for all the hard work it took to stay at home with my son while bringing home an income. Despite my background in sales and marketing; post-secondary education, and work experience in large corporations. “I have learned the most as an entrepreneur.” At times you might even be so stressed that you feel like throwing in the towel.
On an average day, I’m the website designer, the bookkeeper, the marketing guru, the receptionist, and my own assistant. And did I mention that I am my own assistant? If you don’t have the skill for a particular area then you have to hire someone. The reality is that many entrepreneurs do not feel they can justify the extra costs to hire help when they are first starting out on their new business venture.
