I'm ALWAYS a Mummy first & an Entrepreneur Second!
I've deliberately made this real big, because I want it to stand out.
This will never change!
I will NEVER put my work before my children - it's that simple.
While my children are little & still need me around the clock, everything else will always take a backseat!
Sometimes, this is damn right annoying, especially because I have an overactive brain, brimming with ideas & things I need to get done.
But most of the time, it's an amazing feeling knowing I get to spend quality time with the little loves of my life!
I know that I can't grow my business at the same rate as other entrepreneurs...
I accept that!
I know that I can't work around the clock, drinking endless cups of coffee, because I'd be exhausted & no good to my children...
I accept that too!
BUT, I also know that even though I only have one or two hours to dedicate to growing my business daily...
... it makes me plan better & I only set myself two or three reasonable tasks to complete.
I then don't feel overwhelmed, pressured, bad or guilty, because I haven't completed a 10 point "to do" list!
This is me...
This is how I do things...
This is how I make it work for me & my family...
I get to work online & really enjoy what I'm doing & I get to spend time with my children!
It took me a long time to get to this point.
It didn't happen overnight.
I worked stupid, stupid hours to start with (just over a year ago).
And I know pretty much everyone does this to start with in this game.
And many do this continuously thereafter for months, even years.
But it completely broke me!
It wasn't healthy, it wasn't fun & it made me feel like complete shit if I'm totally honest!
I was a crap mum, trying to keep it together in the day, because I'd been up til 3, 4 & even 5 am some nights GETTING THINGS DONE!
I'm never going back to that again that's for sure!
If you're someone who does this, think about it for a while...
Think about what it's doing to you, your body & your family.
There's a video explaining this below...
Have a fab week
Lots of Love
