How NOT to let your business get in the way of
what’s really important!
(your kids, your family, your VISION!)
By Shelley Mitchell
Are you an entrepreneur who feels that your business keeps you away from your teens, your family, friends and the people who are really important to you?
Do you have a teen is an ENTREPRENEUR or you JUST KNOW that as soon as they find out what their passion is, they are going to skyrocket?
I was in the same spot two years ago. My son was 50 pounds overweight; he recently had gotten in trouble with the wrong crowd, had been diagnosed and untreated ADHD, and was failing school.
Being a single mom, who worked full time and had very little quality time to spend with him that he desperately needed, I didn’t know how to help him. With his dad having passed away three years prior, I was so frustrated and felt hopeless. I felt like a failure as a mom and just in my life overall.
Around this same time, I had attended a business conference, and someone was selling another workshop. God knows I didn’t need another conference to go to but then they said “and you get to TAKE A TEEN FOR FREE!”
Without even thinking about it, I jumped at the chance! I knew he wouldn’t be very happy with me for making him go to an “old people’s conference” but I also knew that it would give us a couple of days to spend quality time together just hanging together doing things that at least one of us thought were fun.
Since I’m a Business Coach, and baking cookies or teaching homemaking skills was NOT my gift, it also gave me an opportunity to do things with him that I was good at. So, with a little persuasion and absolutely no excitement from him at all, we went to the event together.
Well, to make a long story short, something a million times more amazing came out of that weekend than I could ever expect. I always thought that he had huge potential, and I always believed in him but in his mind, of course I did! I was his mom, and that was my job.
It wasn’t until I had the willingness to expose him to outside positive influences and other entrepreneur minded people, who encouraged him and also told him that he had potential and that he could be successful, did he start believing it.
After that weekend, he decided to write a book. WTH?!? Note, to this day, he still has not passed the writing part of the SAT, and all I wanted was to get this kid into a good college. That was my job.
On the inside of me, I wasn’t sure he could accomplish this, writing a book OR even getting into college. Hell, I couldn’t even get him to take out the trash! A lot of red flags starting popping up but as a mom and a coach, I knew I needed to support him in whatever positive endeavor he wanted to go on even if I didn’t “believe” he could do it.
Because of that ONE DAY experience and because I DECIDED to take the leap of faith and bought a ticket that gave me the opportunity to take a teen for free, OUR LIVES CHANGED FOREVER.
In two short years later, he now has three published books, including the very popular “7 Days To Understanding Your Teen” that he has sold more than 1,000 copies – one at a time. He also became a TV show host, graduated with a B average, actually lost 50 pounds and got into great shape and started doing some modeling on the side. But the best part for me, especially since he still hasn’t exactly passed the writing part of the SAT, is that all of these things were exactly what we needed to GET HIM ACCEPTED TO AN AMAZING COLLEGE!
Caleb is now a freshman at the University of South Florida in St. Pete in the Business and Entrepreneurship program and doing awesomely. (He made straight A’s for the first time his first semester) But even more importantly, which I believe is every mother’s dream, he KNOWS what his passion is, and he lives it and works on it every single day.
Caleb is passionate about EMPOWERING people who have struggled their whole life, never feeling “good enough”, and who are trying to figure out what they want to do. He wants nothing more than to inspire those who never believed that they could actually do it!
My VISION and Caleb’s VISION Collide!
My VISION most of all, in addition to getting him into the best college possible of course and know that he KNOWS and LIVES his passion every day, is to finally put on an EVENT together with him to empower those same people.
My passion is to help thousands of entrepreneurs grow successful businesses which include SUPPORTING PARENTS who have businesses who have struggled from being torn between having to spend time with their family and what’s really important versus having to make money and build a business at the same time.
Caleb’s passion is to inspire parents and teens, to bridge the communication gap between them in their teens and to also EMPOWER THE TEENS. He shows them how to have the confidence in themselves to take that leap of faith and know that they can do whatever it is that they set their mind to – just like he did!
Well, those VISIONS come together next week!
