Working from home is a tremendous challenge, especially after the children get out of school for summer break. The thing is that running a business, completing household chores, and just maintaining your sanity is beyond a serious must to be a successful mompreneur. At the end of the day, you have to learn how to multitask and make the most out of every minute of your day. You cannot afford to waste a second of anything to move forward with your family and your business.
Listen, you have to make sure that you make time to get enough sleep, and keep a pretty tight schedule for all the goals that you want to get done for that day. You tend to make tons of lists to be better, but sometimes your lists have lists.
And Girl, consider this blog post. I know that in a few minutes the little kingdom will arrive home from their day out with the King. I am concentrating and working diligently to complete this blog post before they come home. I managed to put some food in the crock pot, and vacuum the living floor too. I know that I have several other things that I could be working on.
But I know as soon as the little kingdom comes home they will want my full attention. as soon as they come through the door full of abundant excitement and whimsical bliss, and we will have to start our afternoon routine. If I stop working on this blog post to do other things, I will have to return to it later on this evening when the little kingdom is asleep, and I am beyond exhausted to put my thoughts together to write an awesome post. I would have to reboot my computer, open my blog, and gather my thoughts to finish! But thankfully here, I am going to show you 8 helpful tips to get everything done with massive grace this summer.
8 Tips for Multitasking as a Modern Mompreneur
Evernote is great app that synchs across all of your technologies to help store multiple to-do lists, to go along with your written to-lists.
Push to complete one task at a time: The key to being massively productive is to focus on one thing at a time, get it done and move on to the next important thing for the day.
YouTube Channels are Bae: YouTube is so under-utilized by moms today. You can cook dinner, cut vegetables and listen to the content on YouTube most of the videos are 5-7 minutes long, you do not have to commit to a lot of time to video.
You can get your best ideas while exercising: When are on a run a great way to multitask is to listen to podcast. NPR has a lot of great information for on-the-go!
Social Media on the go: When you are in between meetings, in carpool, or in the grocery store this is a good time to check Twitter or Pinterest.
Take special moments for yourself: It is good to take time to decompress for at least an hour of Zen in complete quiet, and take a break from multitasking and just relax on the couch and read a good book or watch, “The Real Housewives Of Potomac,” even a supermom takes off her cape for some guilty pleasures too. I believe that taking a long shower, or bath is a wonderful place to collect and re-set your thoughts to stay on top of your day.
Use Video Conferencing as your go-to: This is one of the best tools to use on the market! Instead of meeting with clients, you can use video conferencing or voice conferencing and other virtual collaboration tools like Google Suite, Zoom, or Google Hangouts.
Outsource the things that help make your life easier: There are some daunting tasks that just take up a lot of time away from your family. By getting a virtual assistant or intern from your local college to take care of urgent phone calls, emails, and client inquiries. So you can make more quality time for yourself and enjoy summer break!
