If you are new to my blog, or have been reading for awhile, you might be wondering, how does this lady know so much about sports parenting?
I’d like to explain why, tell you why I am writing about it, and why you might care.
Why I know so much about sports:
- I was raised in a family that loved sports.
- I married a man who started coaching football even before we tied the knot and has coached for 28 years.
- My 3 kids all started playing sports when they were like, 4 or 5. If you count gymnastics and ballet, then 2 or 3.
- All three of my kids have played or are playing sports in college.
Why I am writing about sports:
I’ve been writing for over 30 years, but I kinda got side-tracked from seriously writing because I was busy running a taxi service to school and practices and games, and cooking and cleaning, and doing every other gosh-darn thing that a mom does.
Writing was on the bottom of my priority list; I had to settle for dabbling.
About a year ago, some friends of mine kinda kicked me in my writer’s butt and told me to get serious about writing again.
As I pondered what the heck I would start writing about, i concluded that there are two things I absolutely, positively know:
I know I can write. And I know about being a sports parent.
The logical choice then, was to write about being a sports parent. That’s when JBM Thinks evolved into a sportsparenting site.
I am now doing what I love. I am doing what I know. I guess you could say it’s my dream business.
This is why you might care:
I want to tell you that if I can do it, you can too. What is your passion? What do you love to do? What do you know you can do?
Starting my own business as a sportsparenting blogger has been a blast–with a lot of hard work, of course. But as a mom in her 50s who now has an empty nest, I’m here to tell you, it’s never too late to pursue your dreams!
How about you? What is it that you’ve always wanted to do? What dream business wouldyou love to start?
Think about it. Then take a minute to reply. You could win an ipad to help you get going in your dream-business direction!
