3 Tips To Setting Daily Goals For Mompreneurs.
Are you a control freak? That’s ok. There a lot of moms who are, and it’s now necessarily a bad thing. However, if you’re a mom that takes care of the household duties, the kids, and now you are a mompreneur as well, it might be a good idea for you to let go of a bit of the control in order to relieve a little stress and be able to concentrate on your business.
If you still have all the same responsibilities as a mom, but now have a business to focus on, one of them is going to suffer unless you have some clear cut organization.
One thing that has helped a lot of mompreneurs with this transition in the beginning is setting daily goals. The trick is to set goals not only for your business, but for the family side of things as well. This will greatly reduce the stress and pressure of having too many things that need to be done, because you will know when they are scheduled to be finished.
Here are a few tips to help you out:
- Every Mom Has Limits
It is mandatory that you do not let yourself get exhausted. Your business will take a bit of time to grow and you will be more productive with your time if you are awake and alert when you get to work. Allow yourself the time to get things done right, even if it takes a bit longer than you’d hoped. It’s still faster than doing it twice.
- Don’t Forget Free Time
This may sound obvious, but some new work at home moms actually forget to schedule in free time. Moms need time to themselves to do absolutely nothing at all, work on a hobby, or simply read a good book in a comfy chair alone for a few hours. Whatever it is that fulfills your soul and rejuvenates you, be sure to schedule in that time to refuel.
- Separate Mom From Businesswoman
Set goals and schedules that separate your work and family duties completely, even by alternating the days if you can. That way, you have a few days of work that has no laundry, and you have a day of family tie that is a break from your business. Also, keep testing to see what works best.
