It has been quite awhile since I've written on Milk and Mud – mostly because my life has been really busy and we've gone through major changes in my family.
I won't go into all of the nitty-gritty of those changes because I know that what you want to know about is the business side of things 😉
I think it's enough to say we've added a 7th baby to our family, we're learning what it means to try and balance a young family with helping aging parents, and Scott was laid off from his corporate job.
That means we're really busy…
…and my online business is what's paying the bills!
A Rocky Transition
I can't say that this has been a comfortable ride at all. Change is rarely comfortable, and with the exception of welcoming our youngest daughter, none of this change has been fun at all.
But it has pushed me and my business to places I never expected.
We went from what was a lower-level, “side business” kind of online business, to a more powerful, mid-level internet business.
Make no mistake – I am still not where I ultimately want to be, but I am learning and growing in ways that were hard for me to imagine even when I started Milk and Mud (and were certainly unimaginable when I started NBBC).
Growing a niche information marketing business alongside my family has been very interesting, and we are still in the process of growing.
I'm picking up writing here on Milk and Mud again because I want to share what I've learned in the school of really hard knocks over the past couple of years – and I want you to walk along with me as I start to scale this up even more 🙂
