Creative business owners! How to do more every day! My 5 tips!

This is for all the moms pulling double duty, trying to launch a creative business and do everything at home. The doctor appointments, constant meals and snack, the cleaning, the soccer mom, baseball mom, football mom or maybe all 3, the mom who is constantly pulled in a million directions. We have all been there. Here I want to give you guys 5 of my best tips for figuring out how to do it all. I by no means have it all together but I have a learned a few things.

1) Realize you cannot do everything. Repeat; YOU CANNOT DO EVERYTHING! Dear sweet mama, you are going to have to let something go. I often get told "I don't know how you do it!!" To which I typically will text a picture of my sink full of dishes or my laundry pile or my bedroom that gets to borderline hoarders level. I say I DON"T, get a look at this right here!!! " I try with all my might to keep it real. So just acknowledge that you are now a small business owner, a mompreneur, and you're going to rock at it and for that to happen you just need to let this season of your life not be perfect!

2) Get up early. I know it suuucks! I HATE getting up early but there is something about being up before the whole house awakes and the madness begins, Maybe you can get up just an hour early and at least have your coffee and knock out a few messages. You can also stay up late, either way if you want to make this work you gotta find some kid free time. If your kids nap, great! Use that!! I use to run around like a mad women once I laid my kids down for naps. I would work with laser focus during the hour or two they laid down and you'd be surprised how much you can get done. I swear I got more done when they were babies and toddlers than now when they are 5 and 7! Anyone else feel this way?

3) Close Social Media- Facebook, IG, Twitter, email, etc. If what you do doesn't require the computer, close them down, put your phone on do not disturb and just crank out your work! I find that setting a timer can come in handy. I'll set a timer for 30 minutes...OK I'll go 30 minutes without checking my phone or computer. It's so sad but it's kind of crazy what you can get done without the distractions of social media. We check our phones WAY too much, am I right?
