“Mom, We love your new job!”

Submitted by JDiazAsper on 08/05/2010 – 10:22 am4 Comments

This is officially my first week as a full time start-up chick. So far, I love it. And so do my kids. They have noticed how happy I am pursuing something I have always wanted to do, start a business. It feels great to show them that you can “Do It”!

Things are looking good for the new business so far. We are getting great feedback but we are in early stages so it’s too soon to tell we. But right now I almost don’t care. I am just happy that I finally did it. I stopped just talking and started doing. It really feels good. Someone asked me what made it happen this time. Beyond the ‘good’ idea  and great partner, I will be honest and say that “writing a check” makes a big difference. Nothing gets you more focused on making it happen than investing a little cash and knowing you got to earn it  back. Add stop getting a regular pay check and you got some serious motivation to make it happen.

Here are the girls and I enjoying the ride up to BlogHer and life as a start-up:

Mom, I love your new job!

It sums up being a mom entrepreneur pretty well. Lots of “boogie, boogie” !

So now it’s about execution and keeping the focus! Blogher feels like the perfect place to start!

  • Pleased to read your post, I wish more people could love their job. And I am so so jealous of your trip to Blogher – a bit too far from Scotland but I really really will come one day!

    Have a great time there!
