Whether you’re a work at home mom (WAHM), managing a side hustle, or starting your own company, it can be hard to master the art of productive parenting. Some days it feels like my three-year old needs all of the love, attention, and brain power I have! Then what’s left for my business? Not much. The next time you’re feeling burnt out or unfocused, try these motivation tips to become a mom boss your kids can look up to: Rally the Pep SquadLearn Course
Find cheerleaders in your life who actively support your dreams, celebrate every accomplishment, and help keep you accountable. Then tell them exactly what you need – weekly check-ins, motivational quotes, or a quiet pat on the back? Online communities and mompreneur meetup groups are a great way to expand your circle.
Commit to 15 Minutes
Fill your 15 minutes with planning, prepping tasks, or just scrolling mompreneur motivation feeds on IG. Chances are, once you get the ball rolling, you won’t want to stop. If you’re still not feeling up to work after the timer ends, that’s okay! Be kind to yourself and try again tomorrow.
Erase Guilt with Gratitude
Guilt is toxic, especially when it’s self-inflicted. I personally feel ‘mom guilt’ for lots of little things, like choosing to work on daycare plans while my son has to wait a little bit longer to go to the park. Whenever you feel guilty about something you can’t do, write down two things you’re grateful that you were able to accomplish – both for your family and your business.
Maximize Your Productivity
Finding the right tools can make all the difference. The next time you’re struggling to make sense of a messy planner, come up with a last-minute activity for the kiddo, or quiet your thoughts to fall asleep, pause and take action to fix it. It sounds counterintuitive but taking a few minutes to try a new app or organizational system is worth it. Set up a better routine to maximize the time you have. As a mompreneur, I’ve learned that my ambitions and goals don’t have to take a backseat – they just need their own car seat. My daycare and preschool businesses are like my second child. I owe it to them, myself, and my family to give it my all!
