Why it is ok to want to earn money with your business

Why it is ok to want to earn money with your business

You have a small business or you are thinking of starting one. You have a great product or service idea and you are very passionate about it. You might also have another driver like supporting a good cause or wanting to spread the word about something that is important. You will want to help people with your product or service.

And of course you have passion. When you start your own business you should always have passion for what you do. It will make working so much easier and work will actually feel less like work.

However I hear you when you are saying: I also want to earn money with my business. And in this post I want to write about why it is ok to want to earn money with your business. Or why it is ok to admit that earning money is the main reason why you start a business. It might be the only reason and that is also ok. Also as a female entrepreneur.

Pro's and Con's of the life of a freelancer

Pro's and Con's of the life of a freelancer

Are you thinking of starting your own business and work from home? Do you want to start working as a freelancer but are not quite sure yet? May be you have to start freelancing because of external circumstances? Or may be you are a new mom and have decided to work from home now?

There are so many reasons why people want to start working from home and as I have done it for many years now I thought I would share some pro's and con's with you.

I actually started working from home because I had to. I was always working for a big company and was very happy there. In 2007 my husband and I moved to America for his job. I quit my full time job and was suddenly completely free and without real plans. After I had explored our new home town, joined the gym, drank a lot of Starbucks coffee with my one and only friend there and learned how to iron really well while watching the whole series of “sex and the city”, I actually had to make a plan of what I want to do. I had to make a choice wether I wanted to start working full time for a company again or did I want to start my own business?
