Mompreneurs - How do you do it?
I would call myself a fairly new "mompreneur" and am still trying to figure this whole working at home thing out. My mom and I started our business so I could be a stay at home mom and reap the benefits of staying home with my lovely daughter. Well, my mom still works full time in property mgmt and cannot give 100% to our business so I am trying to take care of the slack. - networking, social media updates, marketing, website maintenance...etc...SO how do I juggle ALL? and still remain sane? Well, I would say wine, but only after 5pm ladies....I think discipline is the key word here. I am starting to realize I have to think of this "mompreneurship" as a 8 -5 job and set my schedule accordingly. Waking up at 4pm going to gym -network with other gym rats, 5am starbucks run, need energy to drive home -network with caffeine lovers in line, 6 -8am get ready, get daughter up and feed, dog might get fed, cat will be forgotten, daughter will be tugging at my pants for MORE JUICE..until she pants me! and then maybe at 9am i can open laptop while juggling ANOTHER cup of coffee, daughters fingers on keyboard and dog wanting to go potty, 10am possible phone call to client or follow-up with lead......blah blah, i am exhausted just getting to 10am....let alone make it to my 5pm deadline for wine. HA. But really that is pretty true to reality. Can anyone relate? So really how do you mompreneurs do it? What activities do you have them do while you work?...mind you she is 18 months old...so painting the dog is not an option. We are suppose to go forth and conquer....I hope i can conquer my mornings and answer emails.
As my daughter would say....TaaaTaa
