SAHM feeling stuck...

I’m a SAHM with one child who’s 18 months old.  I spent the majority of my career in service roles, customer support, executive assistant.  I don’t feel like I have the time or experience to start a business from home.  What can I do?

I’ve noticed in my entrepreneurship Facebook groups that almost everybody is looking for a virtual Exec Assistant these days!  I’d first start by trying to remember if you enjoy working with one person, or actually manning customer support.  The good thing about customer support is that most of the work can be done any time, day or night, if the platform is done primarily via email support.  If there is phone work required, this could get tricky.

Last I saw, good Executive assistants were making a minimum of 60k annually in a corporate environment.  From home, you can have a virtual concierge service that helps leverage an executive’s travel plans, calendars, etc.

What kind of time commitment are you looking to spend getting back to work?

Have you considered what part of the roles you’ve previously had that you love and what parts you hated?

Perhaps now is the time to parlay your experience into a different specialty.  For instance, if you’re great at customer support you could be the “refund consultant”.  You could analyze support systems for an online business and find out why they’re having their refunds and then coach the company to overhaul the system for less refunds.  This would be incredibly valuable to any business with ecommerce!

Maybe you loved the research part of your previous gigs.  You can start building a resume slowly but surely on upwork by taking freelance jobs.  Get great reviews and then charge more than the other contractors; only you’ll have a leg up when you have great reviews and you speak perfect English.

Did you like the communications part of your jobs?  Judy Tsuei has an incredible contribution to the Moms Wear Capes program discussing a career writing and she has PHENOMENAL ideas in Modules 3 and 5, lessons 16 and 30.
