We women are the care givers of the world. In today's time we are raised to believe that we can do everything (and most of us can) and we can be anything (which we can) we want to be. That puts us in a position of being care-giver, house keeper, bread winner, cook, taxi driver, peace keeper, pet trainer, laundress, organizer, bookkeeper, entertainer and goodness knows countless other titles. Throw in "business owner" and our list doubles especially if we have an outside "job" along with trying to run our business.
I know I fall into every category above and then many more. By the end of the day I'm trying to figure out if I can find just a few more hours to advertise one or the other of my businesses. Time to network and say "hi" to all my friends. Then by about 11 pm I'm thinking "I have to work for my client at 6 AM and I haven't taken 5 minutes for ME"
We burn out quickly and want to do it all (after all we have been told how many times "I am woman hear me roar"). My "roar" is turning into a "meow". I'm trying to learn new things, keep my client happy with extra little jobs to bring in more income (I only have ONE client, he's keeping to his promise of keeping me too busy to have any others that is for sure) work for my client a 40 hour "regularly scheduled" week, trying to balance the books (husband is again out of work), relaunch both my sites, gain new customers, keep the house clean enough so that the health department doesn't crash down my door, keep my son fed and my husband somewhat in an "up-beat" mood. Taking care of all gets, well, tiring.
So, as a woman, a business owner, and the caregiver of all, what do you do to "refresh"? When your days are so busy trying to "roar" what do you do to make yourself "purr" with contentment? What "short cuts" have you found to make your day a little easier?
Have a great evening
Ask me about the Pink Briefcase Club, you won't regret it.
Club for just women in business, networking, advertising and local chapters. http://membership.pinkbriefcaseclub.com
Hi I wanted to stop by and introduce myself and let you know a little about me,
THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH, I promise, I'm not trying to get you to join my down line (I don't have one). I'm just letting you know a little about me and my companies.
My name is Nikki. I run two online businesses. DeNapoli Services, an off-site admin service that caters to Ecommerce businesses. I am assembling a small team and will be relaunching this in November.
I also have Shop Denida, this is an online store that puts creative women in the spotlight. This is my way of giving back to all the women. I have run into a small stumble on this for lack of funding. I only have 100 products up in the site and about 400 more to put in there but need to purchase a larger shopping cart first. This will be happening in the next couple of weeks. You can help with this wonderful Idea by supporting it on Idea Blob. It takes a moment to sign up (they do not spam you) and vote for me. Thank you in advance for your support
I'm always open to advice so if anyone has any on either business I would LOVE to hear it. I'm really good at taking constructive criticism.
Along with these two business I'm a mom of 2 and a wife and of course a woman. I have many pets that I love to take care of and actually have business ideas on that too. However I have learned that one business needs to take off and run before I can start to many more.
I'm a firm believer that hard work pays off. Shop Denida has only been live since September 1st and I already have a Google ranking (albeit only a 2 but a ranking none the less) and will be learning more about internet marketing in the near future. Once I have that mastered it will be one more service that DeNapoli Services will be able to offer.
Another thing I am doing with Shop Denida is spotlighting a woman's cause. The cause I'm currently doing is the Pink Ribbon Tour. they will be having their home coming on the 26th of October and I will be gathering donations for baskets. Visitors to the home coming can enter the drawing for $5 for a chance to win one of the baskets. This will raise money for Breast cancer awareness. If you have anything you would like to donate please contact me. Donations will give you the opportunity to get some advertisement in the community. I plan on giving full credit to anyone that donates an item or something. I already have some vacations, T-shirts, pictures and a few other things. The bigger the basket the more donations. I will also be doing a jar of pink jelly beans, for a buck people will be able to guess how many in the jar and be entered into a prize drawing for another prize.
I'm very excited to be a part of this group. I plan on doing lots of networking this weekend to get donations for the prizes for the home coming.
