Anchored Dreams

"I'll never forget when my daughter, age 3, sneaked into my office one day and was playing with my computer, unbeknownst to me, until I logged onto AOL the following morning and was blasted out of my chair with 'YOU'VE GOT MAIL!' in the highest volume possible. She had been playing with the volume control button."

A Voice of Experience

EP Motivating Force:
Following my passion.
EP Musings:
I just gave birth to my third baby in three years. I have mastered the art of nursing with one hand, or no hands, and typing with the other.
EP Advice:
Be realistic about what you can accomplish in your business, and still be available for your children, or you will end up feeling like an ineffective parent and an unproductive business owner. Unless you are going to work early in the morning, or late in the evening, don't expect of yourself a full-time work schedule. Only people who have never tried it believe that you can park your children in front of Barney, or a coloring book, for hours at a time!
Also, be patient, persistent, and prepared for a long, adventurous ride with lots of ups and downs, but a fun ride nonetheless!
