I’m a Melbourne mum of 2 cheeky teenage boys and 2 super-cute puppies. And I know what it means to juggle motherhood and this crazy thing called life with running a profitable business you love.
I’ve struggled with it at times. But I’ve also succeeded. In a BIG way.
As a business owner, maintaining your work-life balance can be a struggle. It’s something we all need to work on. Work-life balance can seem like an impossible feat especially when technology allows us to work around the clock.
Every business owner will have different commitments and responsibilities in their life, so creating your balance may look different to everyone else’s.
If you currently feel like you’re on the brink of burn out, exhausted, feeling like there’s not enough hours in the day, I’m here to help.
If you know me, you know I love to outsource. Don’t try to be all of the things, all of the time. Play to your strengths. If there are tasks in your business that will either save you a lot of time or a lot of stress, outsource them. Rome wasn’t built in a day and it also wasn’t built by 1 person.
Your task list may have 50 things on it and it can look overwhelming. To help prioritise your time, go through your list and label them in one of these four categories:
You will then be able to see what your priorities are, map out the time in your diary and achieve what needs to be done today, this week, this month.
Book in your calendar time that you spend on doing things for yourself. It seems counterintuitive to take time out from your business to be better in your business, but once you come back after a coffee catchup, a yoga class, or a walk, you’ll have a clearer mind and motivation to jump straight in.
It’s also good to put time in to celebrate your achievements and milestones, even if they’re small. You will be more likely to take this time to celebrate yourself when you feel you have accomplished something amazing in the process.
When you’re in the day to day of your business, you may have trouble finding those moments to work “on” your business, rather than “in” it. Growing your business can be a challenge, but not one you have to do alone. There are communities of like minded people you can find on facebook, that will be having similar experiences to you and can offer support and advice. Another option is to talk to a business coach.’
