Creative Business Strategies for your Brain and Your Brand
10 Best Mom Hacks to Elevate your Business and Your Life
Get help. Make sure you can get help any way you can. If you cant afford much, find an intern, use a family member. I could not have had babies without help from my “village”. Today I have an assistant, a house cleaner and I have my groceries delivered. My kids are old enough they have taken over a ton of the household chores. Next on my list is to get a few meals a week delivered.
Plan your day down to the minute if you have to and practice self discipline. Follow your regimen carefully and you will get more done than you thought imaginable. My husband laughs when he sees my schedule and thinks its rediculous, and then occasionally he will comment, “I don’t know how you do it all!”. No shit Sherlock, I schedule it.
Meal prep is key. Since I haven’t gone to having meals delivered, I try to spend Sunday planning meals for the week. Its amazing how much time we spend just trying to figure things out, planning ahead is the best way to save your mental energy.
Saying NO is so powerful. just say no to PTA, to things that don’t align with your greater plan, don’t care what people think of you.
Having a life strategy or a bigger goal to align smaller daily decision with helps a ton. I do this once a year and put it on an index card and keep it in my little schedule book.
Delegate as much as possible the small tasks, to kids, husbands, family or hire someone.
Don’t work weekends, recharge your mind, setting boundaries for others. I have seen this gain respect and clients now value my time more because of those boundaries.
Exercise! If our energy is in a jar, we can make that jar bigger holding more energy if we exercise on a regular basis.
Be sure to prioritize tasks on a daily basis, being able to change or pivot is invaluable. Everything changes, we live on a spinning mass hurtling through space.
Make time for family and fun. I actually schedule this time to be sure I get to it. If you don’t list it it wont happen.
