Hi, this is Mommy Lynn and welcome to my blog!
I am a full time stay at home mom residing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This blog was created back in September 2017 when I was toying with the idea of being a mommy blogger.
My intention was simple.
Being a full time mom, I don’t have an income source and relying fully on my husband.
Having 2 kids with 1 source of income is not enough to support a household in urban Kuala Lumpur. Don’t you agree?
Therefore, I set out to find ways which I can earn money by starting a home business.
In this blog, I’ll share my experience building my home business.
I will share with you the 4 keys pillars to build a successful home based business. These pillars are:
- Your dream
- Your business partner
- The support structure
- Continuous learning
My intention is to inspire other stay at home mommies in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia etc that it is possible to start a home business and being a full time mother at the same time.
What I am sharing are not new ideas but it is something that I’ve learnt and is working for me and my family.
Are you currently looking for ways to start a home business?
If you are, I hope what I shared on this blog can help you and guide you on the right path.
What is your dream?
The first key pillar in running a successful home based business is Your Dream or your desire.
What is your reason for starting your business journey?
Do you want to have more time with your kids?
Do you want to travel?
Do you want to buy a new house or car?
Do you want to have financial freedom?
This is the hard truth…starting a home business is very easy. However, having the will power and energy to keep going when things get tough is very very hard.
That’s why many people quit or simply gave up when faced with challenges.
That is the reason why your dream is so important to keep you moving forward when things get tough.
As for me, my dream is very simple.
I want to buy a house and I want to have enough money coming into my bank account every month so that I can go on a holiday oversea with my family every year.
Whatever your dream or desire may be, know that it is very important if you want to start your own home business.
Choosing the right business partner
The second pillar of a successful home business is choosing the right partner.
When I decided to start my own home business, I didn’t have a lot of capital to invest. Furthermore, I didn’t want to keep any stock at home.
Therefore, I chosen a combination of drop shipping and direct marketing business model.
The company that I partnered with is BE International Marketing located at Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.
Why I decided to partner with BE International?
The answer is simple, it is because the products offered by BE are very unique and the 9 types of commission and bonuses provided.
The top selling products for my business are the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi from Japan, Shiruto vitamin for our immune system, Zencoso systemic enzyme, Maqnifiq collagen drink, Befil heart health formulation and many more.
These products are in the health and wellness market with high repeat sales value.
BE International is also very generous with its business partners with its 9 types of commission and bonuses.
Apart from the bonuses, the company also organises the BE a World Traveller campaign which is held twice a year.
What I really like are the Car Fund (paid out monthly for a period of 4 years) and House Fund (paid out monthly for a period of 20 years).
These 2 bonuses are Passive Income in nature just like collecting rent from a property investment.
Me and my husband have qualified for both the Car Fund and House Fund in end of 2018.
You may or may not like my approach, however my goal is not to do only something that I like.
My goal is to build a business which can generate an income source from home.
There lies the first lesson if you are searching for ways to start your own home business.
Do not focus on doing something that you like or look cool that will impress your friends on social media, rather do something that has been proven to work and others are successful doing it.
That’s why I’ve chosen the drop shipping and direct marketing business model.
The support structure for your business
The third pillar of a successful home business is having a reliable support structure.
When you are building your home business, understand that you are not suppose to do everything by yourself. You have to work as a team.
I know that I don’t have the knowledge and experience to solve all the problems in my business. Neither do I want to loose a lot of time and money making mistakes on my own.
What I did was got a mentor to guide and coach me in my business.
My business mentor is Cyndy. Like myself, Cyndy is also a full time housewife and mother.
Cyndy and her husband have built a very successful business in a short time frame.
If you want to improve your chances of success in your home business, getting a mentor or coach is essential.
Keep on learning and improving
The fourth pillar of a successful home business is continuous learning and improving.
To grow your home business, you have to constantly learn and upgrade your knowledge.
You will need to have a system to learn about the product you are selling and also the science behind your product.
In the new digital economy, you will need to learn new skills such as online marketing, video marketing, blogging, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Facebook marketing, WhatsApp marketing, Instagram marketing etc.
Additionally, you will also need to learn soft skills such as communication, presentation skills, public speaking, copy writing, leadership etc.
Starting your own home based business
Do you want to start your own home based business to create an additional income source?
If you do, I understand the hardest part is taking the first step because there are a lot of uncertainties. I’ve experienced the same feeling of fear and doubt when I first got started.
My advise is, go back to the 1st pillar that I’ve written above…your Dream.
Allow your dream to push you forward.
Don’t worry, you won’t be taking the journey alone. Me, Cyndy and others are there to help and support you.
