Mompreneuring Ninja Tips for the Dog Days of Summer
Who else has their kids home for the summer?
As an entrepreneur and parent, it’s been quite the struggle figuring out how to separate work time and home time. I’m lucky enough to have an office in my house where I can escape to when I need to get work done, but even then it can be tricky. My kids love coming in to say hi throughout the day, and are reminded that I’m working since I’m in my office. This got me thinking about all the tips and tricks that I can share with other mompreneurs and parents who are working from home on their business. These are going to most apply to younger kids, but certain suggestions can also help from kids in middle school or older. I wanted to share some ninja tips around mompreneuring during the dog days of summer. These are things that are working really well for me and my family!
One of the best things that we’ve done this summer is creating a schedule for each day so that the kids know what to anticipate and when. We set breakfast, the time when the nanny arrives, the time for lunch, snack, reading, and for whatever activities they’re going to do that day. This has really helped my oldest because he’s able to see where they are on the schedule for the day and how much longer they have until I’m going to be done working and join them. This also gives the nanny a good idea of what is expected from them each day, so that they are able to move the kids along from one thing to another without the kids getting bored.
I have a ton of suggestions for you in this episode if you’re a parent like me, so make sure to tune in!
