16 years ago, I found my first reason why. It came in the form of an 8 pound baby boy named Matthew. My son changed the way I thought about a few things but mostly…How I would put food in his mouth and clothes on his back.
It’s such a wake up call having a baby. And not in a bad way at all, it puts another human being before you and your pride and selfish motives disappear very quickly.
How was I going to do it? I was a 24 year old little turd for lack of a better term, who thought he knew it all. And here I am, having a son…Entrepreneurship seemed like the best option.
I was into about week 1 or 2 of staying up at ungodly hours, warming up bottles and changing diapers when it hit me like a freight train…You need to be in this kids like 24/7 and not become a weekend Dad.
Sounds great…How do I do it?
I started learning about internet marketing. I started to discover traffic generation techniques. And finally stumbled upon email marketing and list building.
I was hooked.
Here was my reason why, sitting in my lap and the future I dreamed about staring at me on my computer screen.
16 years later….I’m doing it all over again.
I’m writing this blog post at 11:47pm while my new baby boy just finished his bottle and will hopefully let his mom and I get an hour or two of sleep.
I love it.
This is why I fell in love with working from home.
Can you possibly think of anything better?
I get to spend all my life with my family and provide for them without missing a moment of their lives. That’s true freedom. That’s the true power and potential of being a home based entrepreneur.
(Notice how I have never once mentioned a monetary amount…Your reason why has to be bigger than just money…)
16 years ago I got a taste and since then, it’s never left me.
Find your reason why and you’ll fall in love with your job each and every day all over again!
