Six Tips for Mom Biz Success

 

Success Tips:

  1. Define Success for yourself: think about your priorities and values
  2. The Double ‘S’ Principle – Systems & Support: You can’t do it all on your own – don’t try!  Start creating systems that support you.
  3. Do work you love: Doing work you love, with ideal clients will carry you through the harder times
  4. Ditch the guilt: Stop being guilty!  Set up time for quality time for your chdilren, and then follow your dreams!
  5. Set strong boundaries, and stick to them – If you are a full-time mom and full-time business owner, you have alot of demans on your time.  Set expectations and communicate them with your spouse, your family and your clients.  Then stick to them!
  6. Set a goal and create a plan to get there: If you don’t plan on where you’re going, it’s like getting in the car and ust driving – you’ll get somewhere, but will it be where you need or want to be?

  1. Guilt and boundaries are my biggest challenge. There never seems to be enough hours in the day and with four elementary age children I feel like someone always needs me.

  2. I totally “get” what Brandi Starr commented here, Lara.  Luckily for me, the “elementary school” years are behind me. But I certainly haven’t forgotten those days!  I’m a single mom with four daughters, including a set of twins.  No spouse to back me up or give me a break.  No reliable support system — my family is three thousand miles away. Hang in there, Brandi — I can assure you things will get better and easier. 

    Remember this …

    You only have two hands, two feet, and one voice.  You can only do the best you can do and that’s all you can do.  I think your key focus should be “flexibility”.  🙂

  4. “Flexibility” isn’t so tough to master, Lara …

    All you need to do is take a couple of juggling lessons! 

    And after you realize only a few select people in the entire world can keep those balls (plates or whatever you’ve tried to juggle) up in the air (because yours keep hitting the ground!), you’ll quickly acquiesce to flexibility.  🙂

    We mompreneurs just can’t be all things to all people and take good care of ourselves at the same time.
