Who says family and business don’t mix?
OK, I know a huge amount of the time when people mix family and business, it doesn’t go well. In fact, too many times it can go very badly. I just read an article that listed the top 5 reasons to never go into business with family members. But I’m gonna go against the grain and “beg to differ” a little. Hope you’ll indulge me.
Family and business is all around you.
Need an example? Hmm…let’s see. Well…how about me?
No, I’m not in business with any family members. But I started my own business because of my family. My kids, to be exact. And before I started my own business I spent 14 years in a management position for a large corporation. But during that time I noticed some things I really didn’t like.
I didn’t have much time (sometimes not any at all) with my kids. It wasn’t work I loved. And it certainly limited my income opportunities. So, after some diligent research, became a partner in a small business in early 2000. And that improved those three things. But I believed I could kick it up another notch…even a few more notches. And I mastered the technical details of business and started developing what would become my business coach CRM system.
My system worked so well, our business increased overall production of 82% over the next 6 years. And our gross annual profits went from $310,000 to $1.7M in only 4 years. So, we even opened second and third divisions. And in only 3 years those divisions earned over $4M. We discovered how my consistent, reliable, and predictable marketing strategies were the keys to all that success.
Several small business owners and entrepreneurs found out about my system and those results. And they wanted to know my “secrets”.
So, I saw another opportunity. What if I took what I’d learned and went out on my own? And that thought came up in me because my business and family times still weren’t as balanced as I wanted. My kids were little. And I didn’t want them getting big while I spent the days, weeks, months, and years in an office.
And I’ve been working my own business for the last 11 years. Using my RondaReady business coach CRM system. And thoroughly enjoying working from my home based office. Yes, I still have one-on-one clients. But the time flexibility is way better than anything I dealt with before.
Now, am I sharing this with you to brag?
Absolutely. Just kidding. No, I want you to know you can do this too. Especially since you can leap frog past all that time to learn on your own. Because you can plug your business into my already proven and working system. For committed go-getters, this will be like getting a 50 yard headstart in a 100 yard dash.
