In this day and age, it’s becoming more and more difficult to live off of one income. This means that oftentimes mother’s are going back to work or setting up their own business from home much earlier than before. My clients often tell me they feel like they have few options when it comes to the decision of whether or not to work while raising children. For me, although I had the financial freedom, I felt a desire not only to be a parent but to get back to my clients and continue with my mission to create massive impact in the emotional and financial health of those who wish to coach using my methods. If you’ve decided to keep up with your career, whether through choice or necessity, you’ll be busy, but you can certainly make it work. You’ll be rewarded in the end because you won’t have to worry about re-entry into the workforce once the kids are older, and you may opt to continue building your own retirement plan, consistently saving for not only your future but your children’s as well. When you ask most working mother’s about how they do it, you’ll often hear about their particular scheduling and planning habits. It’s important to work out a set schedule that works for you personally and go back to basics. In fact these tips work for everyone parents and non-parents alike.
- Plan your mornings. If you’re not a morning person, try completing some of your morning tasks the evening before. Set aside enough time to get the kids up and dressed if they’re not old enough to do it themselves. If you can, enjoy a meal together as a family before the day’s commitments.
- Schedule events. Schedule your after work activities in a planner. This will ensure that there’s room for everything and that nothing important is forgotten along the way. Play dates, grocery shopping, and other errands can be scheduled as well.
- Be flexible. Remember that everything won’t always go perfectly. If something doesn’t work out and you need to rearrange your schedule, just plan to do something on a different day. Since you’re juggling many tasks at once, keeping your schedule flexible is a must for keeping your stress levels down.
“You have to know how to plan your day & parent yourself in life or your life will run with the same chaos as if it were run by a child

One of the top worries of mamapreneurs is the fact that they feel like they’re not as involved. However, if you concentrate on spending the time you do have with your little ones in a quality way, you’ll still be heavily involved in their lives. Just because you aren’t there every minute, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t making a big difference in their lives.
When you arrive home from work, do something with your children that you’ll all enjoy. Maybe they’ll want some alone time to play independently, but you can also stay involved by showing that you care. You’ll have quality time with them at meals, and you can always engage them in family games or other activities.
It’s vital that you remember to schedule some breaks. If you need a “spa day” every once in a while, it’s certainly something that you deserve. Sometimes you’ll feel that you spend every waking moment either at work or worrying about the children, so take some time to unwind. Read a book after the kids have gone to bed, work on your relationship with your spouse, or engage in something you find relaxing.
Spend individual time with each member of your family. Be sure to remember your partner during life’s crazy times and give that relationship some much-needed nourishment as well. Individual attention will help you get to know your kids better, and you’ll have time to truly build upon your lasting relationship.
A mamapreneur is a truly special person. Sure, life can get really hectic at times, but if you start with these simple tips, you’ll be on your way to striking a happy balance between your career and your life at home.
