So, I have a very entrepreneuristic mind. I am constantly thinking about businesses to start. Right now I have a business in virtual assistants. Ok...I dont "have" a business...I have the start of the business. I completed a coaching program that has helped me so much in starting. Now I have to get it off the ground. But...I need funds to do it. I dont need a whole lot of money right now, I just need marketing money. I need to purchase business cards, get my business license, get my 800 number set up, and I will be ready to go. I have everything else ready and set up...so the funds arent unbelievably high that are needed believe it or not. I think at this point Im needing to get together ohhhh about 200 dollars. That is a high estimate. I probably could get away with 100. I have the website set up, I need to do some tweaking and that will be finished.

Now, here is the problem. I am now running my head through what else I wanna do too. I wanna do the virtual assistant business but I also want to do Gift baskets, wedding planning, and travel agent. UGHHHHH.

I have great ideas...I just never know how to execute. The latter 3 businesses require higher funds, and I am not patient! LOL

I have to do research on the wedding planning and travel agency...so those are still on the take a deep breath and get going every where else first stage. Right.....

Ohhh I also have the mindset to write my own books for people needing to learn certain programs. Programs such as Office and Act.

As you can tell my mind reels with ideas. I am always thinking about a way to make a dollar. My downfall is I just dont do it.

So today I sent Sunrise off to daycare, I have the day off...Im going to get things done. First I have to clean up my bedroom and work on laundry. Then I am going to make dinner, after picking Sunrise up..>I will sit down and organize and take down notes about doing these businesses....This weekend is going to be spent on finalizing my webpage for the Virtual business and fixing a few things. In the meantime...Im sure I will come up with another business I want to do. That is just the way my mind works.

Why do I want to do all this? I want to be with my daughter more. As a single mom I dont get to spend nearly enough time with her as I should. I wish that I didnt have to leave her at daycare everyday but that is what I have to do for now. Eventually, I look forward to keeping her home with me...and on those real busy days, finding a sitter to watch her for meetings and errands. She is getting to the age now where she can entertain herself for an hour or so at a time. Enough for me to do some work.

Well wish me luck...and hopefully I will have some more ideas when I get back to posting. Maybe tomorrow......

Oh yeah...if you want to contribute to helping my business...let me know. LOL Nah..but I would like to get some business for my virtual assistant business. If you have some work that can be done...Let me know! I am affordable and experienced in many areas. Email me for information!

My dh is the same--always thinking of some other stream of income. I think the virtual assistant is a great idea. And I'd LOVE to do giftbaskets, too. My friends and I have talked about that forever!
