Shark Tank & Making Money as a Mom

Shark Tank and Making Money as a Mom

I’m short on two things right now, time and money. I got barely 5 hours of sleep last night, and have a hefty pile of debt that is really beginning to annoy me.

As mom’s, I think we can get trapped sometimes with our time going in a million directions and a simple lack of money. Or our money isn’t really going where it should be.

In light of my exhaustion, we decided to break family tradition, and eat dinner while watching a show, Shark Tank

It was so refreshing! I feel in love with one of the entrepreneurs, who was a mom!

Listen To This Podcast Episode

She started a business for two reasons

  1. She needed sleep

  2. She wanted to stay home with her baby

As moms these are two awesome things that we can appreciate. And she did it!! Not with a bunch of start up money, or because of a degree in Marketing. She saw a problem in her life, solved it, and then started helping other moms.

Thoughts on Moms Making Money

  1. You can start with nothing

  2. Really smart rich people fail! Don’t be afraid if you don’t know everything.

  4. Share things with those around you.

  5. Sometimes the worst thing you can do is hire someone -from Shark Tank

  6. Spending a bunch of money on marketing can be a black hole -from Shark Tank

You can live the dream! It is tough, it often involves tears getting there. But you can do it. I still am a long way from where I want to be. Ok, lets be honest, the only place I really want to be right now is in bed sleeping. But it can be done, dreams are achievable! What are your dreams? Are you ready to go after them?
