6 Reasons To To Global Part 3: Flexible Hours!

If you’re like I was, you struggle to take care of your children, your home, and (oh yes!) yourself most days. Add a spouse and/or parents to care for and you’ve got yourself several full time jobs. Yet, if you’re like most of us, you still need the income in order to provide your family with a better life. When I went back to college full time I took classes during the day, took care of my family until bedtime, and then studied and wrote papers until they were done. I often woke up in the wee hours of the morning to get a project finished before the kids got up. It was the same when I started Social Media Design! Believe it or not, I loved the flexibility of being ALL THERE for my kids while they were home from school. I loved being able to cook them dinner and to keep my finger on the pulse of their every day lives.

That was worth A LOT to me and I’ve never regretted working flexible hours so I could have it all. Plus, I learned how to work smarter, faster, because when results are all that matter,  putting in hours becomes silly. You work better. You feel energized instead of checking the clock.

  • Your art or service are results based, so you can create systems and work a LOT smarter.
  • You get to live the kind of life you want.
  • You get to vacation exactly whenever you please.
  • You experience family time just the way you want it.

Exchanging Our Pain

The pain of not reaching our potential, the pain of being overlooked, the pain of not being heard.

The pain of being a cog, of not fitting in enough, never enough. The pain of having to measure up in a world that keeps telling us that we don’t.

So many live with that pain because the alternative is hard to consider.

The alternative is to experience the pain of being free. The pain of saying, “here, I made this.” The pain of living with the opportunity to make a difference.

There’s no pain-free path. But at least you can do something that matters.

Over the years I’ve crafted a perfect recipe for success online

Roasted-Garlic-Macaroni-and-Cheese example for how to sell your art online course recipeIt works like one of those great recipes where you can play with the ingredients for the rest of your life as long as you get the proportions right on what matters most. There are probably a million ways to make mac and cheese, including gooey smoked gouda, and cheddary baked versions. Yet, you can create a new one every week if you want, because the basic recipe, the formula, works: noodles, gooey cheesy stuff to bind them, seasonings, and heat. The trick is in doing it WELL… 🙂

(Take a peek at Gordon Ramsey’s Twitter account for a laugh if you want to see him roast other people’s food pictures. Hilarious! )

If you’re looking at creating a global business and want to know a lot more about what’s involved, I suggest you take my How To Sell Your Art Online course. It’s cheap, it covers the basics, including the mental/emotional blocks most people experience, (and how to move through them!), and is the award-winning formula that works so well Wiley Publishing asked me to write a book about it for them.

Take A Look.

All my courses are money back guaranteed for any reason – for a year. So you really can’t miss.

You’ll have everything you need to know and more to decide whether creating a global brand is for you and you’ll have a detailed recipe for how to do it.

Let’s do this! 🙂
