I was recently featured on Mom Blog Society where I share my Seven Hacks To Set Firm Boundaries That Create Work Life Balance For Creative Momtrepreneurs (for real).
Here is an excerpt from the blog:
Struggling to make ends meet, facing bankruptcy, and spending long sixteen-hour days away from my new baby, entrepreneurship didn’t look like I had hoped.
I always wanted to own my own business. I thought it would allow me to be a present parent, a compassionate boss, and the champion of my own destiny. Why did nothing look like I’d always dreamed it would?
Something had to change. In 2015, I spent the year getting all the education possible on how to run a profitable and successful business. Today, I’m the mom of three under six (including twin boys!) and the owner of a seven figure wedding and education business. I work six hour days, I support a team of five amazing employees, and I rarely miss a school party or softball game.
So how do I set boundaries and create a work life balance? Here are my top seven tips to reclaim your life.
Determine your ‘why’.
Making big decisions can feel overwhelming. Simplify those decisions by establishing your ‘why,’ and use that as your compass. For example, my ‘why’ is that I want to work hard so I can spend as much time with my husband and children as possible. When I’m given an opportunity to do work that will (short or long-term) allow me more time with my family, it’s an easy yes! If not, it’s an easy no.
Determine your ‘why’ and allow it to guide your decisions– big and small.
