Do It For You. Do It For Them.

Lady Boss Workshops | Business tips for photographers | Elena Blair and Sandra Coan

If you are anything like me, you have a hard time thinking about yourself first.  

Chances are you are a mother and wife and putting others before ourselves comes with the territory.  

So when we are building our own business it can feel like a selfish act.  It is time away from our family and because we love what we are doing it almost feels like an indulgence.  I don’t know about you, but a date at a coffee shop with just me and my laptop makes me feel a little giddy inside.  Just me?

Okay, maybe I am a nut job, but I LOVE my job and I love creating and I have a feeling you do too.

But here is the thing I want you to remember...

It is good to have something for you.

It is so good.

You will come home a new woman ready to tackle dinner, homework, laundry, baths, and baby snuggles. Plus, you are showing your children that you can build something out of nothing and make it a success. You are teaching them that hard work pays off and that you can follow your dreams to create a life you love.

So leave the guilt behind.

While I want you to do this for you, I want you to remember that you are also doing it for them.

If you are doing it right, you are earning an income that will allow you to provide for your family, take those dream vacations, and create the life you deserve. If you get really intentional about your time, you can do it in less time than a typical 9-5 with more time to spend with those you love.

So today, stop feeling guilty.

Take yourself seriously.

Start building your dream business for you and for your family.

I believe in you, fellow Lady Boss! You got this! 

 
xoxo,
Elena
