Mompreneur’s Simple Ways to Cut Business Cost

For home-based and start-up businesses, cost cutting maybe one of your goals this year momma.

In order to keep our businesses growing, I guess we should treat it like managing our home finances. “Living below our means” or “Operating below our income”

Our expenses should be smaller than our sales to keep the business growing, proper allocation of funds and prioritizing purchases.

Sharing with you some of simple ways we’re planning to do this 2016 to save more this year:

 

1. Utilities- we are planning to switch to a better postpaid plan that suits our business need. I just realized that most of our clients are using this network provider, at the same time, they have a postpaid plan that offers unlimited calls and text to same network. So why should I pay extra fees from my current provider if I can just switch to other network. Some provider even have a complete business bundle with internet, landline number and mobile numbers for you and for your team.

The Art of Prioritizing

Simplifying and having the right “priorities” this year.

These are the common goals of many people – especially working moms.  And I am not an exception, I am one of them who wants to stick to my priorities in life and just love a much simplified life.

I’ve noticed that I always crammed and always felt torn between two or more important things. (event invites, workshops and wifey-mommy duties)

Thankful that I remembered what my husband’s leader and our church senior Pastor taught him before on How to Prioritize.

Standing Up After A Business Failure

failure

 

Standing up after a great fall is one of the hardest thing to do in life. This often happen when you’re in the business world. Being an entrepreneur requires us to take risks. And sometimes, things don’t happen and work according to what we have planned.

 

Naniniwala ako that everyone of us, at some point in our lives experience the painful word “FAILURE”, yung may mga  sleepless nights, anxiety attacks and so much more, let me tell you that “I -Feel- You”.

 

I’ve failed many times, in small simple decisions in life and of course a couple of times in business ventures.. And it is true “Ang mahal matuto sa life and lalo na sa business”

But as the Chinese Proverb says “Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up”.  I admit, there were days na nagpipity-party ako, naaawa sa sarili, reminiscing my past achievements, re-computing , full of “if only…” complaints…

 

Then.. One day, God tapped my back and said “Anak, you were born to succeed, you have My DNA, you have the right and power to achieve and be victorious, I have given you the abilities and talents to succeed in life. Move on! Move!”

And YES! Its a wake-up call! As always, God is always on-time, Those words were what I exactly needed to hear, I tend to be stagnant and stuck, full of excuses… Then that word “MOVE!” alarmed me.

 

Sharing with you some tips on how to move on after a business failure:

 

  • LET GO – We need to Let Go of our disappointments, forgive those people who’ve brought us into frustrating situation, forgive ourselves. Let Go,Let God.

 

  • BE GRATEFUL- Start the day with thanksgiving, stop complaining. Appreciate the things that still remains. Stop comparing your life to other people.

Tips in Writing your Faith Goals

stones-451329

Hello January! 

Are you excited for what’s in store for you this year?
I am sure you have your plans and goals for the whole year.
This year will be a great year, another year of miracles and answered prayers..
Before our church’s annual prayer and fasting,
My husband and I created our faith goals for this year.
I am sharing with you some tips in creating an effective faith goals that we’ve learned from our mentors, books, seminars and some are based on own opinion (nag-wowork naman haha!)
Just Remember:
P-S-T!
  • Personal – we cannot set goals for other people since we cannot dictate or control others, our goals should be individual or personal. It should be driven by our inner desire not because we want to impress, please or compete other people.
  • Specific – we should have specific goals, example is instead of “Family Vacation” it should be “3 Days Palawan Vacation with family on our wedding anniversary” you should know what you really want to achieve and pray for this year.
  • Trackable- goals should be time bound, we should set a date for each goals, so we can also track our progress. “For example, eat healthy meals and lose 5 kilos by June ” 
Some of our mentors shared that goals should be Realistic and Measurable.
We should be passionate about our goals, goals that we really desire not dictated by other people.
Goals that are align to our calling and purpose in life.
But we should also remember that when our plans fail, we shouldn’t lose hope,
And above all else, we should seek to know God more this year and everything else will fall down into its right places.
Proverbs 16:9
The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.
Happy Goals Setting!
