So in this video I am slaying it! I am walking you behind the scenes to lesson planning like a BOSS! That's right! A Childcare Boss! It's time to get your plans together and make it work for your business model.
My business model is built off of learning and ensuring that children have the very best a childcare business can offer.

So if you want to have a business that produces greatness in others, you must first have a vision of greatness!

My first experience in the childcare industry came by divine inspiration. I had no childcare experience, no formal business experience, I had never walked into a childcare business before nor did I have children of my own. But while in prayer, I asked God for his direction for my life and clearly I heard the word, ‘daycare.’ I immediately got started and moved confidently in the directions of my dreams.
When I started my first childcare I struggled with enrollment, business management and staffing. I had no idea how to successfully grow my childcare business. Enrollment was dwindling in but not quite how I had envisioned. I was stuck with a building licensed for more than 200 children and I only had 60. I was the driving force of my business. I, literally worked in every position of my business - from the front desk receptionist, after- school bus driver, cook and occasionally I worked in the classroom as a substitute provider. I left work every day feeling overwhelmed and tired. The next day I’d start all over again – feeling overwhelmed. I needed relief.
Weak in faith and without guidance, I made a decision to sell that location. After giving birth to my first born, my passion to care for children intensified. I realized it never left me so I began to pray again. This time I had no money, my credit score was low and there was no one to go to for help. I started with what I had and began babysitting for $10 per day. As my baby-sitting services began to grow, I applied and obtained the license for family. We continued to grow so I obtained the license for group, then we grew to two groups and on to a large center. I moved into two large facilities to care for over 160 children each day. All of this happened in less than five years.
I had purpose, promise and passion but there was no payoff until I realized there was a better way to achieving childcare success. Through many years of hard work through trial and error, I finally found the formula to grow my childcare business. When I look at my wonderful life now, I realize it was determination and hard work that helped to build the childcare business of my dreams. My income grew successfully from $10 per day to $3000 per day in my childcare business. I created systems which make childcare easy.
Today I am dedicated to sharing with others and want you to know – you too, can truly build a childcare business that generates wealth and happiness as you manage the childcare business you love!
