Let Go of Your Safety Net & Step Out in Faith for Your WAHM Business

Every work-at-home mom struggles in her business at some point. This week’s guest blogger, Shannon Lambert of MakingMommas.com, walks us through some of HER biggest WAHM struggles – and her realization that sometimes you have to let go of your safety net in order to truly fly!

Go Big or Go Home.

Those words always make me see crowded gyms and cheering fans. Rock and roll music blasts through for 30 seconds while the team takes a time-out to figure out a new plan.

How many times do you want to take a time-out, to figure out a new plan in your business?

Is it when things get intense? When the score is completely one-sided and you feel like calling it quits?

The coach calls the team in for one last pow-wow; one last chance to pull the team together to win this thing. He gives the speech of his lifetime, fully intending to motivate his team into feeling it.

If they can feel it, if they can see the win, then they can pull it off.

Go Big Or Go Home.

Give it your all or get off of the court.

It took me three years to learn this lesson in my own WAHM business. Read More

Acting in Faith for Your WAHM Business

If you’re thinking about starting a WAHM business, be sure you are acting in faith as you move forward! Here are 5 ways to start acting in faith today!

Have you ever dreamed, prayed, and believed that God would do something for you? And yet, it never happened?

Let’s say you have this dream of being part of a huge song & dance number for a new Hollywood musical. You tell God how much it would mean to you to be part of something so big and so amazing. But, you never audition or show up to a casting call for extras. (Okay, yes, we’re talking about me here, but I’m sure I’m not the only one out there! —> 🙋🏻‍♀️<—)

Do you really think some casting director is going to call you out of the blue and ask you to be a part of a movie when you have zero experience and no one knows who you are? Not likely.

That dream will STAY a dream unless YOU participate in the process and put yourself out there for an audition. God could just have an opportunity drop in your lap, but most of the time, He wants to know you’re truly invested in the outcome and are willing to put in the work, so He can SHINE through your actions.

James talks about this balance between faith and works in the second chapter of his letter to the scattered twelve tribes, and he’s actually pretty harsh with them about it: Read More

7 Steps to Maintaining Laser-Focus in Your WAHM Business

Are you getting too easily distracted in trying to build your business? It happens to the best of us — but it CAN be avoided. Check out these 7 Steps to Maintaining Laser-Focus in Your WAHM Business!

Last week, we talked about how doubt causes us to be double-minded as we build our Work-at-Home Mom businesses. James says that a double-minded man is unstable in all he does (James 1:8), and it’s just as true for our business lives as it is for our faith lives, our marriages, and our parenting!

The LAST thing we want when it comes to our business life is to be unstable. The whole goal is to create a business that will provide career & financial stability!

So, if we want to build successful WAHM businesses that can help us support our families AND give us the freedom to be home and prioritize our roles as moms, we HAVE to learn to be single-minded and laser-focused.

We KNOW double-mindedness and distraction will KILL our WAHM business efforts. We know we HAVE to find and maintain a laser-focus on the business God has called us to.

But HOW??

That’s what we’re diving into today, so let’s get to it! Read More
