Today is the 1st of May and is officially the 6 months anniversary of ‘Work It Baby‘. I know it doesn’t sound like a great achievement but I’ve heard that the first year is the hardest and especially the first 6 months. Now I’m by no means under any illusion that’s it’s going to be easy from now on. I know I still have a long battle to success, but still I’m over the moon to be where I’m at already.
Before I launched my business I went on many workshops and courses and was always told how difficult it was to run a business. I certainly believed them, but not until I actually started did I understand to the extent. These 6 months have been a real roller-coaster ride with many up’s and downs. I have to be honest and admit a very embarrassing secret that the first class I launched no-one actually turned up to. This was a very sad moment for me and wanted to give up there and then. After about 6 weeks I felt like I was going to have a break-down because I was working extremely hard and I just couldn’t get anyone through the doors. In December I already had to take some time out by order of the doctor and only launched November the 1st. I decided I was going to spend time with the family and enjoy Christmas. Best decision I made because it allowed me to realise that my business is all about mums and family, and what mum is going to start a new fitness regime right before Christmas? I wouldn’t, family first always.
