Most everyone I know has had that "aha" moment when they think of a better way to do something or has a great new idea. For those who've taken something from a thought and made it a reality, congratulations! Give yourself a pat on the back...you're an entrepreneur.
But I am proud to say that he is now in a joint venture with several friends and they are taking one of those ideas and making it a reality. That brings a huge smile to this Mom's face!
As a SafelyFiled member myself, in addition to being a co-creator, I see a huge advantage of keeping business information in a secure service such as ours. I have my own personal account but also need to share information with my co-workers regarding our business. Although I can segregate folders to allow access only to certain people it's easier for me to have two separate accounts. It's affordable enough to do that too which is easy on the budget.
We created SafelyFiled with the really cool feature of being able to manage multiple SafelyFiled accounts (if that's a need you have) with a single login and password. In that way, I only need to keep track of one set of account credentials to manage my personal account, access family or friend's documents that have been shared with me and manage my business account. I wonder where we were in the development process when that great idea came to one of us in the middle of the night?
I suppose like my son, I still have a lot to learn about managing my own business. But I'm so thankful that we were able to take the idea of SafelyFiled from an idea to reality and created something that is a much-needed solution for families and businesses alike.
So as an entrepreneurial-minded Mom, this is my advice. If you have an idea and know in your heart it's something that would benefit others, go for it. Yes, you may fail, but failure to try is the biggest failure of all.
