It’s Saturday morning and when most people are sleeping in or setting out to spend time out with family and friends, I find myself once again up at my computer working. I remember recently being at a friends home for a birthday party thinking, ” I wish I was at home working. I’m wasting so much time. I could be getting so much done right now!” And that prompted me to think, “Am I a workaholic?”
Since then I’ve realized that I’m not a workaholic, I just really enjoy what I do. One because it allows me to set my own working hours and two, because it’s creative. And third, who doesn’t like to make money!
I read an old article this morning from Entrepreneur.com called: The Weekend Entrepreneur. I thought that you would also find it an interesting read so I’m sharing it with you. The article includes tips for a part-time entrepreneur and the most interesting fact to take away from the article is the realization and motivation that success can happen even if you only begin as a “Weekend Entrepreneur”.
Here’s a highlight from the Entrepreneur.com article, “The Weekend Entrepreneur”:
This stay-at-home mom used a $5,000 loan, a computer and a refurbished fax machine to launch her part-time business. Right away, the response from homeowners was tremendous, and after three months in business, she repaid her loan. Her gross earnings in the first year were almost $30,000.
