In this era, online selling and shopping are part of every household, but as an online seller myself, I don’t just sell to earn profit, my products, are products that I believe in or in short my “passion”. There are … Continue reading
Being a mother changed me a lot. As my child grows, there are also new things to learn for me as a mom. Parang every stage and season are different or iba-iba…
I’ve been into online selling for almost a decade now, and I’ve seen how everything changed when I became a mom, hindi na ganun kadali mag-schedule ng buyer meet-up, or even go out to claim payments from remittance centers. Thankful that LBC, … Continue reading
We moms, are the number one fans of online selling, we love shopping online for our little ones needs. From clothing, medicine and party supplies, name it! we can find it online.
And maybe you’re one of those moms who are thinking of starting your own online business too? May it be to add extra income for the family, or you just want to earn from your hobby? To have something to do while waiting for your kids to be home from school?
When I was between 7 to 9 years old, every weekend naghuhugas ako ng plato as eatery ng mga tita ko during summer vacation and they give me 50 pesos as their “thank you for helping titas sweldo” and it made me happy.
When I was 14 years old, my uncle who’s working from a well-known Ice Cream Chain, offered me a summer job every weekend in a high-end resort “tiga scoop and tiga bigay ng free taste” pero doon ako nagstart mangarap that one day i will be the guest sa mga resort gaya nun..
Because I was exposed to hard work and earning at a very young age, I learned the value of saving and dreamt bigger dreams.. often times kapag sinasabi ko na gusto ko magkaroon ng building at gusto ko magkanegosyo.. sinasabihan pa ako “wag masyado mataas ang pangarap baka di matupad”
But I’m thankful that God has planted in my heart the desire to be in business. He is the giver of Dreams, Gifts and Passions.
“Great opportunities often disguise themselves in small tasks”
“Letting go of the things I cannot change, focusing on the things that I can control”
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 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.
