Working at Home With Kids
Working at home with children can be both rewarding and challenging. I work from home with my three daughters. My biggest challenge is managing time and watching my time wasters, such as checking emails, interruptions, and becoming overwhelmed. I have a property, internet, and coaching business, and my biggest challenge is managing time and watching my time wasters, such as checking emails, interruptions, and becoming overwhelmed.
The Act of Juggling:
How do I do it while also having time for my children and husband? I call it the juggling act. I enjoy business and appreciate the freedom and flexibility it provides.
I work unusual and, at times, long hours. But, in the grand scheme of things, I travel at least three to six times a year with my children all over the world, which is the highlight of my year. Business provides me with the time, freedom, and passion to be happy.
How Do I Survive?
Time for me to meditate and take care of myself
My daily to-do list is as follows:
- Meditation on the Spiritual
- Health and happiness
- What can I do to make money today? Tasks- rank them from 1 to 10, from important to unimportant.
- My mood/attitude for the day
- Examine the day’s events and the list for tomorrow.
- Clear your mind.
Personal, business, and strategic plans
What is my goal?
What am I thinking?
How will I accomplish this?
When am I going to do this?
Who am I going to do this with?
Display a poster of your goals somewhere near you so you can see it.
Set time chunks- What can I focus my mind on if I only have an hour?
Breaks- Taking breaks when the children need them, such as milk time and cuddle time.
I scheduled my free time from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free unless there is an emergency meeting, but this time is for all the children from Monday to Friday. I work later at night from 8pm to 11pm or more if necessary, because there is nothing on TV anyway, and most of the time it is all negative.
Friday nights are unstructured time.
Weekends- Small time chunks may be required on weekends, but they should be kept free.
Include the Children- Involve the children in mail outs, cleaning up, and drawing.
Appointments – If Possible, Schedule Appointments on the Time Day.
Home Time spent on business, time spent away from the office, and time spent on appointments
If your children are in childcare or school, do your marketing and sales during this time to avoid distractions.
Another thing to consider is that you make time for learning, both personal development and business learning.
Remember to Stay Concentrated and Take Action.
Being a business owner is extremely rewarding.
