When you’re ready to start your own business look no further than my online courses.

Online courses provide great value. Instead of not knowing where to begin, Melanie Toye’s online courses gives you the path to follow.

What do you need to know before you start a business?

When starting your own business you need to consider a couple of things:
  • Do you have enough start up cash flow to pay for your wage until your business grows?
  • Or can you start your business while still working in your job? With down the track goals of reducing your hours to eventually working full time in your own business.

What are you passionate about in life?

Starting your own business isn’t just about money, obviously you do need it to earn an income but your business should be about an industry that you are passionate about.

“With out passion you don’t have energy, with out energy you have nothing.” ~ Donald Trump

When you have the added passion of what you love to do, selling your products and services becomes much easier than if you were to start up a business that makes a lot of money but does nothing for your soul.
Making money is good but just making money is just like getting a job to pay your bills. After a year, you will be over it and will do anything to find something better. Instead, focus on the career path you want now and do whatever you can to learn what you need to make it happen.
For me, it’s writing and being an online trainer and creative being. That’s the courses I provide. Everything I have experience in but also what I want to teach others in. If it’s a subject I have no desire in, it’s not something I want to train others in. That’s why I believe my courses are unique because they offer the fun and creative pathways that the traditional pathways don’t. The best part is, you have the full control of your success and time.

Start your own business as a freelance writer

By becoming a freelance writer for example, you get to choose the jobs you accept that make most of your time for the right funds. In addition, you can choose the hours you work. I used to write from the evening to the early hours and then spend the day bringing up my children and showing them the adventures that life brings. The flexibility for me was worth it. In addition, I had great clients, great referrals and was making extra money to spend on my family and do the things we couldn’t afford to do. Instead of doing the 9-5 job, working full time and never seeing my family.
  • It all comes down to what are your priorities in life?
  • What do you want from your life?
  • Why do you want it?

Once you uncover these three questions you will be easily be able to find the right path for you.

Start your own business to provide flexibility to your lifestyle

For example my business course for Mums is great for Mums who are wanting to start a business from home. If you’ve got six months at home or more before you have to return to work, why not begin the first part of your business and get it moving so one day you can leave work and work entirely for yourself and be home for your children during school holidays etc. It’s a long term viewpoint rather than just returning to your day job with no future goals. It’s important to know there are other ways to make your dreams come true.

When an opportunity comes

In my latest eBook, How do they do it? 16 Business Mums share how they juggle life, I sought Mums who owned their own business to find out the truth on how they juggle it all.

Here is a sneak peak into one of Business Mums, Tennille, who was interviewed about her business:

Elena (62 of 114)How long were you in business before you had a family or did you start your business after you had children?

“I started my photography business when my son Cooper was born. I just kind of fell into it. I took some photos of him wearing a cloth nappy and a business owner saw them and asked if I could do some more. That is when I realised I had an opportunity.” ~ Tennille Flanagan, Tulip Flare Photography in How do they do it?
