I’ve been working for close to 2 years on my e-commerce startup (while also being Mr. Mum) and last week made my first sale to someone not personally connected to me (friend, family etc.)
It was such a great feeling (and a bit of a relief) to see all the work and processes come together as I’ve intended them to.
Also felt great to be able to tell my wife, who is supporting myself and our 2 kids while I chase this goal of mine. To give her some proof that the effort she is putting in and her faith in me will be repaid (though still a long way to go) was unbelievable. I know it’s the quickest way for us to reach any sort of financial freedom in our lives, but I do feel like I’m being selfish at times because I know she’d much rather be the one at home with the kids.
The whole thing put me on such a high and has made me even more determined to make this as successful as I think it can be.
It’s been a long, hard road, and there have been times I’ve thought about giving up, but so glad I haven’t.
Bring on the next sale!
