Virtual Work Mastery & Sustainability for Moms & Dads Series Introduction
Welcome to episode 257 of The Determined Mom Show. I am your host, Amanda Tento, and I am very excited to talk to you today. About the new series that we have coming up. To help you or anyone to get started on working virtually. I know a lot of getting back to the office is going on.
There is a lot of turmoil in the economy, so many different things. We’re going to talk about. Virtual work mastery and sustainability for moms and dads. What this series is all about. I’m going to start from the very beginning. When I first started my business. The reason that I started it is because I was pregnant with our third daughter at the time.
Which we thought was going to be our last child. I did not want to go back to my job. I was managing a Credit Union. I worked Five days a week. However, I typically worked from. From 8:30 to 7:30, generally, I was the manager. I had to leave for lunch usually. If it was my assistant managers, days off, there were two days a week that I was guaranteed not to be able to leave the branch.
It was just not very fun. And I didn’t get to attend many of my children’s school activities. Especially if they were scheduled last minute and the school, for some reason at that time, had a habit of scheduling things very last minute. And I couldn’t work into my schedule.
I was able to make the schedule for the branch. However, I could not change it at the last minute. I could make the schedule about a month and a half in advance. And if I knew what was happening, I could schedule it, but those last-minute things still need to happen. What I was looking for at the time was flexibility. I wanted something that I could make a full-time income.
Replace my income from the Credit Union, which was a great salary. There were just so many things to consider. And I figured it all out over the last six years. I want to start this series because friends and family often reach out to me. That is either unhappy in their jobs. They might be losing their job for reasons out of their control. They might want to change, but they all reach out to me to seek advice.
Try to figure out how they can go ahead and start working online because they want to be home with their family, too. They like the flexibility. Maybe they have young kids. Maybe they have ailing family members. Maybe they want to be able to work from wherever they want. And not be tied down to an office. These are some of the reasons that people have come to me.
And said, I want to figure this out. Can you help me? I know you’ve done it. I decided that instead of helping everyone individually. I am not being able to capture that. I would capture it to help more than just the people coming to me directly.
I want to be able to help every single person that’s out there that is looking for this answer. And I’m going to make this a very in-depth series. Hope. There are currently 13 episodes planned out for this series. This is going to be extremely in-depth, and it’s going to go through every single thing that you need to know.
To start working virtually and create a sustainable business. Now you’re going to say, okay? How do you know what kind of business that I want to create? I don’t, however. I’m going to go through some of the options that you have, and I’m also going to be sharing with you. The mistakes that I’ve made over the years. And the mistakes I’ve seen others make in the last six years. Before that, I’d been in Business Management for about 17 years.
I’m going to share with you all of those mistakes in these episodes. That way, you can avoid them and learn from your mistakes. And then create that sustainable business. And help you, whether you’re a mom or a dad. You’re not a mom. You’re not a dad but gearing this more towards moms and dads. Who is looking to create that virtual business? And income from home.
This series is not for the faint of heart if you need a full-time income and are risk averse. You prefer to avoid taking risks. This is not for you. Suppose you have a backup, a safety where you want to stay at your job and to build up your income. That’s always a great idea if you are risk-averse.
This is something to consider. There are very many ups and downs in entrepreneurship. If you follow the series About to Become an Entrepreneur, you are literally. You’re going to be making your schedule. You’re going to be able to Watch TV whenever you want. Can you handle the choice between watching TV and doing what you must do to provide for your family?
Can you handle that pressure? Can you prioritize? There are so many different things to consider. When you think about that, please ensure this is serious for you. But if you want to create that kind of life, This is it. It’s going to walk you through everything.
Recently, I’ve gotten away from helping mom entrepreneurs and gotten more into helping small, medium-sized, and large businesses through my agency. I’ve realized that I have a passion for helping moms. I’m currently going through the NASDAQ Milestone Circle Program. If you have yet to hear of that, it’s a mentorship.
And educational series. Minority entrepreneurs, and they’re pretty much all women. It’s a very cool program. I just started. Last week, I did believe. One of the things we went through was an exercise to figure out our vision for our business. And I realized that I still absolutely adore it.
I am working with mom business owners and helping them create—a better life for themselves and their families. I’m refocusing my vision for my life and my business. And as I’ve had a near-death experience in the last nine months. And that has shaped how I think about my life going forward. And I want to help as many women, Moms, Dads, and whoever as possible. For the most affordable way possible. For you, this is going into the last quarter of 2023.
Please take this last quarter to learn, plan, and build your business. That way, you can go into the first quarter of 2024. You are energized with a solid business foundation. What is going to happen with this series? Is there going to be a podcast episode? That’s going to be released, and it’s going to be completely free to you.
