How do I find my focus?

For the last six months I have wanted to get into e-commerce. I have wanted to do something that can grow a passive income to take care of my family and not be so focused on being away from them working all day. Why am I giving my best to my boss instead of giving my best to my family?

The thing I discovered about ME starting an e-biz is that I am unfocused and easily distracted by the next shiny. First, drop-shipping from China. Then, drop-shipping from the US and Canada. Then, print on demand t-shirts. then, affiliate linking through ClickBank. then, writing monitized niche blogs. It's too much. I'm unfocused and having a heck of a time. I have a storefront on this site (click the Shop link at the top to see), but it isn't totally set up. I have several shirts to choose from, but i'm not happy with any of them. I've been so busy with the rest of work and getting the house ready to sell that I haven't had time to work on them, and so it's been a waste of money to keep up. The thing is, if I find something to sell, and then run the ads to sell it, it will probably be able to pay it back and pay for the money I've wasted on keeping it parked for the last six months.

I've noticed that about myself. I have the seven or eight pages on this site, a perfect place to be building a community, a following, and doing the things that I mentioned above, but it's taking the time to do it when I have my four kids at home and two houses that both need work, plus deciding if I can make a living from home or heading back out to look for a job. But I can't make a living from home when I'm doing all the other things that need done. Very difficult to write an article or do research or update a resume with a 14 month old on your lap that really wants to bang on the keyboard.

So my issue seems to be focus. I'm too scattered. My issues isn't that I lose interest, its that I can't decide what is more important, and I waste time on minutia and really unimportant things, like making the graphic logo on the website or trying to figure out why the menu keeps shifting up to one line.

These things don't make sales. They may help in the long run by making the site more professional, but if I had the ads running and the traffic coming, I could then have the time to fix the minutia.
