My youngest son told me the other day that he loves me because we always do cool stuff together. It made me think about some of the things I take for granted that working from home and selling on Amazon has allowed me to do:
- Scouts meeting? Check
- School performance? Yup, I’m there.
- Going to the lake in the summer while other parents are stuck at work? Yep, no problem!
- Spending time with my kids after school – Always!
- Sick at school and need picking up? I’m 10 minutes away!
I feel really fortunate to be able to be there for my family. And that quality time and the memories we create are priceless and will stick with us for many years.
This upcoming Father’s day I’ll be spending time with my own parents, along with all of my siblings, my nieces and nephews, and my sons. It’s not often we all get the chance to be together and I’m really looking forward to it. My dad worked very hard in my childhood and built up a successful business that he recently sold. He didn’t have the luxury of working from home that I enjoy, and had to often travel for work. But now he’s semi-retired, my kids get to spend a lot of time with their grandparents too.
I don’t know if you’re a parent, or plan on becoming one anytime soon. But with the cost of living these days, many parents both work long hours. And have to also often pay for expensive child care too. This is a raw deal, as they often spend a good chunk of after tax income on daycare and/or a nanny. And miss out on a lot their kids childhood moments. And believe me, they go quickly. My oldest is 13 and turning into a young man. Just a few years ago he was still a little kid!
I share all of this because I’m truly THANKFUL that I discovered Amazon FBA. I’m really glad I invested my full energy into making this business work, because I had a big enough motivation to do so: FREEDOM and being there for my kids.
You already know this site has a ton of resources that I’ve put together over the last few years. What I’ve accomplished isn’t magic. It’s just having a big enough WHY and taking daily action. Investing in training and expanding my knowledge. And more recently, helping others thrive in their own Amazon businesses too.
