Remember me? First of all I am so sorry that I have not blogged this whole summer. It was a very hard summer for me for personal reasons. As far as work went I just did what I had to and very little of anything else. I was able to go to the Scentsy Family Reunion which was amazing. I plan to go next year as well. I learned so much and met some amazing people.
But now…boys are back in school…YAY! And now I have a lot more time to write which will be good.
As I look back at June and July I have to say I learned some things about myself and this business.
Here they are…
1) I need to be writing. I have missed writing like I normally do. I need to be doing it. In some way or another I need to be writing.
2) People don’t think you can make money on the Internet. I know this might come as a shock to you my readers, you all believe that it is possible to make money online. Some people don’t think you can. I think this is because they are not familiar with any of the ways it is possible. This summer I have heard, “Can you really make any money writing? You have to do a lot of writing to make that work” and “Can you really support a family on online stuff? I wouldn’t want to risk it.” It is frustrating to me that people have to be negative like that but I know it is because they have not seen what I have seen. They have not experienced any of it. To them, online is where you play, not where you make money.
3) There is a season for everything. This summer was not what I had planned. Things changed and we had to adapt. Now that it is over I can see it was just for a season. If your kids are young, do what you can. I know how hard it is. You can’t get everything done you want to get done. But if you keep at it there will be a time to focus more on your own work. It will be here before you know it.
How was your summer? Did you learn anything new? Are you ready for a successful fall? I know I am
