Keep Building, Keep Dreaming and Keep Succeeding….

I hope that you have been enjoying my blog series: Building Your Child Care Business by Faith. In fact, I hope that you have been inspired to either: Start up your child care business or Keep growing your Business.

Moreover, I have found that when we have dreams and goals; thoughts of self doubt or fear will keep us in our comfort zone. Also, Fear of what could go wrong, causes us to shrink back and stay right where we are.

I can remember, when I had the opportunity to move my Center into a larger location. I was so excited to finally have a building where I could have infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school age children all in one building.

However, when I drove up to the building, I was worried about how I would get 99 kids enrolled in the center and I was concerned about managing more employees.

I was so worried about the wrong things. I should have been thinking about how much more money the business would be making and how I was getting ready to meet the need of child care in that community.

When your Faith is small, you will second guest yourself or even talk yourself out of an opportunity that is great for your Business.

As I began to activate my Faith, the Best was yet to come…

Today I want to share with you, 3 ways to activate your Faith for Business Building Success!

  1. Get your mind together! If you tend to talk yourself out of an opportunity, its time to recondition your mind. The moment that those self sabotaging thoughts enter your mind say aloud: I can do this. I will have what I need to start or grow my business. You will find that your thoughts will come in alignment with what you say.
  2. Check out your belief system. Do you believe that you can do it? Do  you believe that you can handle the success? I know this for sure, we tend to have what we believe that we can have. So if you believe it, you will achieve it!
  3. Its time to change the way that you Talk. Eight years ago, I bought a book titled, The Law of Confession by Dr. Bill Winston. That book changed my Life. In fact, after reading that book, I learned that your words create your reality. Also, your life will only go in the Direction of the words that you speak out of your mouth. Now before I speak, I consider the Law of confession in my personal life and in my Business. When I found my dream location, I walked up to the door, I placed my hand on the door and I said: This will be the next home of Learning Days! Within a week, My lease proposal was accepted and we moved in the building within 90 days.

As you can see, walking by Faith in Business is a result of things that you cannot see: How you think, what you believe and the words that you speak. Moreover, Faith is simply the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things that you cannot see. So what are you hoping for?

I shared those Faith building principles with you, to get you motivated to Do Business by Faith. Furthermore, I believe that it is your Faith that will empower you to Succeed in Business!

Moving Your Daycare From Your Home to a Center by Faith

childcare_biz_preview

I started my Family home child care business in 1998. In 1999, my daycare was state licensed and four years later, I was tired of the daycare being in my home.

My home felt like a business and not home, so I needed to make a change!

I thought about opening a center. So, I bought a Child Care Center Management book and to be quite honest, the book prepared me for the administrative side of owning a center.

For several months, I took the time to plan my expansion and I visualized my self owning a center.  In the fall of 2002, I began to look for a building.

I found my first building in November 2002 and we moved in the building on April 1, 2003.

If you desire to move your daycare out of your home, this is the time to activate your Faith!! After all, it is your Faith that will attract what you desire for your Business!!

In fact, this is the time to do something. Start reading books, start looking for that building, get a Business Coach and get prepared for Your Business Expansion..

I know that it is easier to stay in your home. However, if you desire to own a center, then go for it. Are you worried about managing employees? If so, get empowered as you listen to my Art of Owning a Center Audio Coaching series.

 If you take the time to empower yourself, you will Succeed!!

Here are a few suggestions for you:

  1. Keep quiet about your expansion plan until you sign a lease on your building.
  2. Once you find a building, give your parents a notice. In the notice, give them a time line of how long the expansion process will take.
  3. If the children in your home daycare are coming with you, let the parents know if there will be a price increase.
  4. Decide what equipment you will take to your center and what you will sale.
  5. As you expand, you may need to spend time at the center, so decided how you will need an assistant to help you. (inform parents of this plan)
  6. Parents will support your expansion plan, as long as you communicate with them. Business growth is always exciting!
  7. Prepare a Start-up budget.

That was just a few suggestions that I have for moving from a home to a center. For more expansion tips, download my book: Child Care Business Expansion Guide.
