EP 3: 18 Hour Days & Giving 150% = Failing?
Play • 23 min

I gave it all my effort, armed with the knowledge and expertise I had at that time. 

I gave it a year, working sometimes 18-hour days – seven days a week. That is not an exaggeration. 

My kids were in their last years at home and I missed it. I was behind close doors. Everything has a price.  

I was like a mad scientist, literally shutting myself off from my family and the world for hours and sometimes days. 

I tried to create a business that would give me financial freedom and a permanent get-out-of-corporate- america pass.

It took me about six months to realize there were some holes in my plan. It just wasn’t happening, and I certainly couldn’t see how this business was going to support my family. 

We were barely out of the recession and it was hard to sell products that were a want versus a need. 

I was under the very naive impression that because I was a smart business woman, was willing to work my ass off and gave it 150 percent of myself that I could NOT fail. I was so incredibly wrong.
