5 Tips to create your Dream Business whilst being a Mother

Creating a business while juggling motherhood can be a daunting task, but it’s not impossible. As a mother who started her own business, I know first-hand the challenges involved. However, with proper planning and organisation, you can turn your passions and skills into a successful business. Here are some tips on how to create a business while balancing motherhood:

1. Plan your time

As a mother, your time is already limited, so it’s essential to plan out your schedule. Create a work routine that allows you to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Determine your peak productivity hours, and arrange your tasks accordingly. Take advantage of nap times, school bus schedules, playdates classes, or any other free time you have to get work done. 

2. Outsource

As a business owner and a mother, you can’t do everything. Consider outsourcing tasks like content creation, graphic design, or admin work. Resources like Upwork and Fiver are really economical ways to get things done by professionals according to your budget. A virtual assistant can help you manage your calendar, emails, and other mundane tasks, which will give you the time you need to work on other important aspects of your business and for your family.

3. Get organised

Being organised is crucial to manage your time effectively. Having a planner or calendar with all your family’s activities and deadlines will enable you to plan ahead and ensure you’re not missing out on any important moments (I use TimeTree). Use project management software to keep track of your business tasks and processes, such as Slack or Trello. Create to-do lists and prioritise them accordingly.

4. Prioritise self-care

When you’re running a business and taking care of your family, it’s easy to put self-care on the back-burner. However, prioritising self-care is essential to maintain your physical and mental well-being and to ensure you don't burn out.  Make time for yourself and ensure that you’re getting enough sleep. Managing a business alongside kids, effectively makes your brain work 24-7. You have to maintain some sorts of grounding exercises in order to stay afloat, whether that is through exercising, or meeting up with girlfriends, or a date night.

5. Leverage technology

Thanks to technology, it’s easier than ever to run a business while raising a family. Use social media to promote your business and engage with customers. Consider using online booking or scheduling software to manage appointments. Use video conferencing tools to communicate with clients or team members remotely. Use AI apps such as ChatGPT and Pictory to help you with your content.

 

In conclusion, starting a business while juggling motherhood is a challenge. However, with perseverance, dedication, and proper planning, you can achieve success in both areas of your life. Remember to prioritise your family, plan your time, outsource tasks, get organised, prioritise self-care, and leverage technology to make your journey easier and more enjoyable.
