Join Other Mature Entrepreneur Ladies Who Are Enjoying SuccessPosted by June Whittle in Blogging, Lifestyle | 8 comments
My plan for 2014 is to turn Miraculous Ladies into a blog to support mature entrepreneur ladies over 40. In my 2013 Christmas article I mentioned that this blog will be changing directions. It’s something I’ve considered for a few months.
The reason why I created this blog was to share knowledge, inspire, educate and motivate ladies. I’ve done that in many ways. But now I want to do more. It’s time to use Miraculous Ladies to help you start the business you’ve dreamed of.
Why mature entrepreneur ladies?
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I’m a mature entrepreneur lady over 40. I recently set up a copywriting business. Your age shouldn’t limit you from aiming for your desired lifestyle. Being over 40, you’ve probably been through some challenges. Maybe you want to make a lifestyle change. I want to help you make that change.
I’ve got a passion to help you. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. But with determination, drive and focus you can make it.
I should know. I took a big risk last April. I gave up a promising career as a teacher to pursue a career in copywriting. It was a massive step of faith.
I did a Complete Copywriting Course with the Writers Bureau. I’m still studying. Learning is an ongoing process. The day you stop learning is the day you die.
I recently completed a short business course. It’s important to know how to run a business properly. I’m now officially a self-employed copywriter. So I’m among one of the many up-and-coming ‘mature entrepreneur ladies’.
“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” ~ Mary Kay Ash
I read an article on Harleena Singh’s blog last year titled, . I shared a story in the comments box of how I nearly died three times. But God saved my life. I know that I’m not here just to live a selfish life. I believe it’s my calling to help you. I’ve procrastinated long enough. It’s time for action!
I’ve blogged for nearly four years. But I didn’t have a specific niche. I’ve had many readers but few subscribers. I tried to please everybody, but ended up pleasing only a few. A lot of visitors passed through, but not many guests stayed.
I want you to become a long staying guest and friend. So I’ll be sharing valuable business tips and advice to help you get started. Inspiring new mature entrepreneur ladies over 40 will be the new niche for Miraculous Ladies.
Is it time to go for your dreams?
Now is the best time to set goals for a fresh start. Work towards new beginnings in a new year.
You probably have a dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Do you know how to turn that dream into reality? Or you could be doing a job you hate, but don’t know how to make a change. Maybe you’ve buried your talents while you raise your family and been living to please others.
Have others oppressed you by telling you that you’ll never make it; you’re too old; you’re not clever enough; you don’t know enough or whatever?
All you need is some faith. Believe you can do whatever you set your mind to do. And it’s possible to grab that second chance. It’s your time to shine. Time to rise up and step out in your new business venture.
It doesn’t matter how gloomy things look. I’ve been there. Sometimes you just have to break out of the circumstances that hold you back. Free yourself! Don’t let fear of the unknown hold you back. If you don’t try, how will you ever know if you’ll make it or not?
I did it. So can you. Your dreams will always stay dreams until you turn them into reality.
“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.” ~ Mother Teresa
What plans do I have for you?

How will it benefit you?
I know what it’s been like to hit rock bottom, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again! So, I want to inspire, support and encourage you that you can start a business. It’s not too late.
I would love you to join me on the journey to live the life God created you to live. Life is a journey and as I travel the road I’m always learning. I want to share knowledge, ideas and insights to help you build a successful business.
So what do you say? Are you willing to come along with me? We can learn from each other along the way.
The only limitations are in your mind. Only you can stop yourself from achieving. If you believe you can change your life, you can. And if you think you can’t, then you probably won’t. Let’s dream big together and make this year one to remember.
Don’t be like those women who get old and look back with regrets. They beat themselves up and complain with words like, “Oh no! If only I had done this or done that!” If only will never get you to where you want to go. It’s a sad song they sing when it’s too late.
There are lots of lawyers, writers, actors, doctors, successful business and more people in the grave. Unfortunately, their dreams died with them because they didn’t pursue them.
“Most people live and die with their music still unplayed. They never dare to try.” ~ Mary Kay

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.” ~ William Faulkner
I’m so excited about the changes. I hope you are too. I’ll also be working on a new look for Miraculous Ladies to go with the new plans.

I’ll end with one of my favourite quotes. “Winners don’t quit. And quitters don’t win.” Be a successful winner this year.
