Whether you have a particular skill, knowledge or talent you have tested or proved in the past, has the potential or actually has generated income for you before, it is a desirable choice for lots of mums that after many years of being a “9 to 5 employee”, have realised they have had enough of it and feel is the right moment to give it a go. If you don’t have clear yet what to sell or to offer, there are plenty of communities, groups and courses that will support you from the very beginning to discover your points of interest, talents and what you enjoy doing.
-Feel comfortable taking risks and are resilient to overcome difficulties and struggles
-Feel confident about your idea, product or service as well as your skills and capabilities and are willing to persevere and move forward in spite of the challenges and potential issues at the beginning of the journey
-Are happy to assume different tasks and challenges. Even though it is very true for any mumpreneur, keep also in mind that outsourcing some jobs, whenever possible, can be the best decision you can make instead of trying to do it all by yourself. Outsource your weaknesses and focus on your strengths.
