Overwhelmed and frantic, guilt over the fact that your family time is suffering while you build your business on the side. With so many things going on, you’re feeling stuck with no direction, no clarity, and not a clue about the bigger picture. With so much on the line, you don’t have any time to waste.
You may also feel unsupported and confused because you don’t where where to turn. Oh sure, your family supports you, but in the same sentence, you’re reminded of just how good you got it at your job right now. Some days you feel discouraged, and your confidence goes up and down like a yo-yo.
The point was to be there for my child, not work all day, glued to the phone while he matured without me.
That's when I decided to finally start my own business. I got really clear on what it was that made me happy and how I could use it to serve others. Thus my first business was a photo DVD slideshow business where I created video keepsakes to preserve the memories of others who also love and cherish their families. . I created this business with the intention of supporting me being present to witness my child’s milestones and never having to choose work over Pookie Bear again.
Two years later, I opened Aprille Reed’s Photography, specializing in family photography. With the creation of these two businesses, others began seeking me out for advice on their careers and business ventures. I then realized, helping people create their dream business just lights me up.
