Being a Woman in Business
Boss Babe: That is usually what I tell people in a joking manner when they ask what I do for a living. I literally never know what to tell people. I am not just a blogger but I do freelance writing and anything else that pops up as an opportunity. Influencer just doesn’t match my title, working mom doesn’t either because I am at home with my boys all day long and they do not attend daycare, work from home mom may fit but I just don’t like how it sounds. You get the point, there are so many things that women in business are called and while those terms may fit for some women they just don’t work for me.
I posted recently about what I have learned in 6 years (now 7) of being an entrepreneur but I am constantly looking for ideas on how to expand on my ideas and ways that I can learn from other women in business.
Miss Bongo is a great resource to help women in business much like myself and so many others that I know. Blogging is a women’s world for the most part but we all like to set ourselves apart from each other and be unique. I love seeing how other women run their own empires.
I also love to focus on how I can feel more professional while working from home because I always feel like I am on the hot mess express. The days often drag on and I feel like sometimes chaos ensues especially when our kids are running around being your average boys. I try to find ways to organize especially my work supplies and my planner and keep them that way to make my days go more smoothly.
Women in business are constantly changing the world and making things more competitive. I love the fact that women can rule the world especially the world of business and I am making my small mark on the world day by day doing what I absolutely love; spending time with my family and making some extra money doing something that I have worked at for many years.
The world of business is ever changing and while I do not know everything I like to feel like I have found a way that works for me as well as my family and while not everyone is meant to work from home because they like the idea of seeing “real” people throughout their day I feel confident in my decisions to work from home and be with my little guys while still contributing to my household. I also get to express myself and put my thoughts and opinions into written form.
Between blogging and freelance writing I find little time for myself but for the first time in a very long time I feel that I have finally found what I am meant to do and at the end of the day that is what really matters. My criminal justice degree has collected a lifetime worth of dust because the idea of that type of job just no longer appeals to me.
Ladies: how are you making your mark on the world? I would love to hear your stories!
