This is question that was posed from my favorite FB group called the “Virtual Networking Community for Introvert-preneurs” today and I thought I would not only comment on the post, but also write it up as today’s blog post too! 

When I first started my business back in 2004, my whole purpose for going full-time was to be more present for both my kids who were very young, one being in elementary school, the other was just turning two. Watching them grow up with their mom always being there for everything was very important to me. Aside from being a full-time business owner and a 24/7 mom, I had to build myself up everyday. I had to get up out of bed every morning, making the decision I need to work and make a living for my family. And I wouldn’t trade that life for the world! 

But there are other things that inspire me to work harder and to be more productive in my business. When I’m at the top of my game, providing the best-of-the-best service and I’m receiving compliments and testimonials from my clients, then I know I have done well and it just feels really good! When I am able to consult with a prospect or client and I tell them my story or provide scenarios of what I believe will help them move their business to a next level, whether it be their services offerings, products or programs…this is what inspires me to help others that were in my shoes not that long ago. But what really drives me the most is when I put the finishing touches on a client website or landing page and the client comes back thrilled with my work, that is what really makes me feel good inside! Anytime I can make a client happy and successful, then I’ve done my job! 

Feel free to leave a comment below letting me know your business inspiration story. I’m sure you have a lot to tell!
