Taking Action on Your Dreams with Kelly Thompson

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 402

Are you thinking about starting a business but worried about failure? In this episode of the Purpose Driven Mom Show, Cara talks with entrepreneur Kelly Thompson about the challenges and rewards of being a mom entrepreneur. 

Starting a business as a busy mom can be a very stressful and chaotic period of time. Kelly provides some insights on what busy moms should consider to get started. At the beginning of the journey, it is important to have an idea and then take imperfect action. You may not know the direction you want to go in, but taking action is key to getting something off the ground and in motion. Kelly shares that even with a fully functioning business, it is normal to have feelings of overwhelm and thoughts that you are not an expert. It is important to not let your inner critic take over.

As new business owners, feelings of failure can set it in the early stages. Kelly shares some tips for managing expectations at the very beginning. Getting connected with a community of fellow entrepreneurs who are new in their business journeys is a good way to get support and also learn different ways of working. This will help establish expectations on how you will deliver and what you are ultimately getting from this business venture.
