Entrepreneurship and motherhood can be tough to balance. Here are some tips to help.
We all wish there was a magic button we could push to give us an extra twelve (or more) hours each day, but until that button appears, we're on our own when it comes to balancing life as mom entrepreneurs.
While there's no magic button, there are a few things you can start doing right now that will give you instant balancing powers and help you better manage your time.
1. Hook some healthy habits.
Think of one thing you need to do daily to ensure a successful, productive day. It could be clearing your e-mail inbox, reading a book to your child, starting a load of laundry or exercising. Now choose something you already do daily, like having a cup of coffee or brushing your teeth, and "hook" the new habit to the existing habit. As soon as you're finished brushing your teeth, clear your inbox. While you're having your coffee, sit down and read a book with your child.
This strategy is a great way to incorporate new habits into your life and ensure you're ending each day feeling good about what you've accomplished.
