That you HAVE to make a change and do something different. Whatever it takes.
Senica is just like you. She is you. She had a thriving career, working full-time government job as an accountant and the hours were long, hard and draining. The season (you know, TAXES… we all shudder) is when her door is shut and she gets to work. It’s also when she stops seeing her family.
But what did that mean for her kids?
Today, I sat down and discussed how this brave mom took life into her own hands. How she made the tough decision to leave the secure world of government to go off on her own. With no client base to speak of. No backup plan. Just a passion and a belief that she had to make it work. Because for her?
Motherhood was worth it. The yearning to create something of her own was there and she knew she could do it.
Meet Senica, mom of four and owner of Simplified Accounting. Today we discuss how she made her business work thrive without one warm lead and what makes this an easily replicable system for you too. She shares her favorite moments of being a working from home mom and how different life is for her now and answers that ever important question – What advice would you give someone who wants to get out of the corporate rat race?
Our Favorite Moments In this Video:
“That first day that you aren’t at your job – you almost need a detox – that feeling is amazing. The details. The date. You will never forget it.”
“Get your first client, get your second client, get your third client and THEN rework your systems because you are now juggling.”
“Being a business owner you have to get out there, let people know you exist, get comfortable, even if it is just closing leads.” Fun fact….. Senica’s leads come almost entirely from online networking and referrals from her online network. And she does not have a huge facebook list or email list. She basically knew exactly the type of client she wanted to target and went specifically for that.
“My first client came from cost per click ads on Google. The coldest lead you can possibly get and it really confirmed for me – yes. I can do this. I am going to make this work!”
Find a mentor!!! Having a mentor a few seasons ahead of her in this space was key to not feeling alone, avoiding key mistakes and having confidence in starting her own business.
