Johanna Eccles, Sarasota, Florida is on a mission with her business. Johanna helps women start their own business from home, around the busy schedules of a mother who still needs to run the household. But Johanna plans to do more than that this year by saving the lives of hundreds of dogs through her charity No Doggie Left Behind.
“Most women are scared to start their own business, but there comes a point when a women needs to find themselves typically once the kids leave home and they need to work out what makes them happy. I make it easy for these women to take their first steps in starting a business confidently.” Eccles goes on to say “ Most of my clients are looking for the support system to help them succeed in business, and don’t want to be alone having to work it out themselves.”
Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo said this about giving career advice to women. “I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.”
Eccles explained that “Women spend most of their lives serving others and when it comes time to do something for themselves they become lost or worried. It is a one thing as a mother to step into the unknown because you are doing it for the best interest of your children. But where most women struggle is when they have to do something for themselves for their own best interest. It is when your kids leave home or you experience a loss or financial set back you realize that you want more from life. I help women to take their first steps into business to achieve success financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually this is what I call the Women Centric Business Model.”
Not only has Johanna launched a successful company that helps women start a business, but is donates part of the profits to saving the lives of dogs around the country through her charity No Doggies Left Behind. “I love animals and wanted to run a business that truly allows me to make a difference” Eccles Said. Now that is a reality by giving homeless and abandoned dogs a loving home.
With 52% of businesses being home based it is not surprising that more women are stepping up to start their own business. With a cell phone, laptop and internet connection you can be doing business with anyone anywhere in the world. Next time you speak with your mother don’t be surprised if she has started her own booming empire from the spare bedroom.
