Homepreneur – a very pleasing description of myself after running a business filled with hard work, enthusiasm, dedication, planning and support from my family. I started this beautiful journey 5 years ago on the auspicious occasion of “Navratri”. There has been a lot of learning, excitement and recognition in this process. Below are some traits that made me successful as a “Homepreneur”.
1. Pursuing Dreams – Chasing opportunities
Starting a home-based business was not out of necessity but it was with a desire of pursuing an idea to do something meaningful as per my schedule and ensuring personal freedom. I grabbed all the opportunities and made the best use of it with the knowledge and skillsets I possessed. I have always stayed focused on my goals, been consistent in my efforts with determination to work harder and ensure that things get done timely and took take charge when necessary.
2. Own Boss – Accountability & Responsibility
There is nothing more satisfying than being your own boss. I had to put an enormous amount of self-discipline to run a home-based business as there is no scope for slacking. I had to chalk out a daily schedule with a solid working hour, shoulder all responsibilities and be accountable for any hard decisions and stand by them.
With practise I realised that running a business, both online/managing events, one has to be on the toes constantly, responding to customer queries, ensuring availability of right stock, confirming orders, ensuring timely delivery & manage my finances optimally. There are no fixed working hours; we can’t shut shop at 6 pm and call it a day even if we are at home.
3. Connect with peers on various platforms – Social media/ Events
I understood that running a business cannot be a lonely affair. I have made the best use of various social networking platforms available like Facebook, WhatsApp, events, etc. I participate in various closed as well as open groups as participation in such groups help only open my mind and give me an opportunity to meet and interact with other bright young entrepreneurs.
4. Keep distance from people with negative thoughts
Unfortunately, there are people who discourage you from negativity and are never happy with whatever I achieved. I used to mow them down and stay away from them with an ‘I-don’t-care-what-you-say’ grin on my face as when you’re driven by passion, nothing can keep you down. So I used to forget these crabs in a bucket and go forth to achieve what I have set out to do!
5. Family Support System
I kept communication channels open with my family members so that they don’t end up feeling neglected. I have always discussed with my family about how my business is progressing. Instead of cutting them out and demanding my own space, I have involved them in your business.
With the above traits, I am able to efficiently manage & have a perfect balance between my family, business, customers, vendors and my social life.
