Launching a business can be challenging especially when you work a full-time job and you still have to manage a household and other things. Today I’ll be sharing what helps me stay consistent and how I manage to balance everything.
How we balance working a 9 to 5, entrepreneurship, and a household:
- Putting my business on autopilot
- Set aside time for things
One of the keys to staying consistent is with proper planning. Purchase a calendar and utilize digital calendars. Map out time for planning sessions. The more you plan, the less stress you will have. Just as you need time to plan for your business you should also focus on planning for the family.
Putting my business on autopilot
Like most small business owners or start-up businesses I pretty much do everything myself. I’ve found that putting my business on autopilot works wonders for me. My time during the week is limited due to work and home life, so I set aside time on the weekend to focus on driving the bulk of my business. Everything is planned out and prescheduled ahead of time. Third-party scheduling apps are my best friend.
Set aside time for things
It is really important to set aside time for things that are important to you. Schedule time for meal prepping, fun family time, and time for work and worship. This doesn’t have to be a strict schedule but be conscious of these things and be aware that they all need time.
