Two Jobs - Mom and Business Owner Too Much? Here's Help to Cope and Enjoy These Two Roles More

Both jobs are super tough and demanding on your time, energy and resources. So it is natural that some days it just feels like it is all too much. Don't worry help is on the way from these tips from other working moms who understand exactly how wonderful and stressful being a mother and entrepreneur can be.

  1. Spend Time Carefully - Think of time as units you are spending each day. You know the old adage that a task expands to fit the time allotted. As such, then it is wise to assign only a certain period of time to each task. Be certain that is is a reasonable length.
  2. Kill Perfectionism - This seemingly positive trait has strangled many a smart and creative woman's schedule and sanity.

Keep your eye out for your inner perfectionist and tame her.
  3. Computers are Your Friends - There are many tasks that software and technology could do for you and free up extra time such as checking account reconciling with Quickbooks Online,  tax preparation with Turbo Tax, grocery shopping online with Peapod and family scheduling with online calendars.
