Let’s face it; life as a mompreneur can be really tough! Every entrepreneur and small business owner has to deal with the ups and downs of business. But mom entrepreneurs have the added stress of raising kids WHILE running their business from home.
If you’re like almost every other mompreneur out there, you have days of being flat out exhausted after being up all night with a sick kid or teething baby. You work hard to balance your clients and workload with spending time with your family and taking care of your kids. And some days, it feels like you are totally off balance and you just need some help.
When I have one of those days (or weeks) where life feels like it’s spinning out of control, I have to remind myself to go back to why I became a work at home mom in the first place. Remembering my why helps me stay focused on the bigger picture instead of getting lost in the day to day craziness.
After I get my head back on straight, I sit down and work on my time management. I look over my time blocking and see if I’ve gotten out of balance in an area. Have I been spending too much time on my business and not enough with my family? Or maybe I haven’t taken any time for myself recently.
When I figure out what’s been off in my schedule, I can then come up with a plan to make sure I stay balanced. So many times it feels like life is out of control when we are out of balance. But finding ways to take the control back can really help you feel like you have a choice instead of being a victim to your circumstances.
And when I’m sure that I’ve figured out a way to stay in balance, I look for some inspiration and motivation to keep me going. Surrounding myself with motivational quotes helps me keep going on the tough days. It can be easy to think that every successful person out there had it easy. But the reality is that truly successful people had to work for what they have, just like you and me!
