how do you do it...





The right ingredients in a life is huge! Of course their are so many different directions to go in. Some days I think I have it down pat... Other days I wonder if my head is even screwed on correctly {lol}. Being a mother of 2 children and a business owner... The juggle is slightly awkward. I'm not complaining at all because I am truly blessed to be able to be with my kids at any given moment of the day, but then do exactly what I love to do, Interior Design. How do working moms do it, stay happy {life & love} and have a social life on top of it all? I need and want to be more organized... I do look at my friends and envy their organization {tina, i'm talking about you... smile}. I've started getting more strict with that, but of course fall off the bandwagon once in a while. I wear so many different hats at my office that all of a sudden my 8:30am to 9:00am social media commitment goes to the way side because I get a phone call that's urgent or a customer wants guidance with a sofa order, so I need to stop my 10:00am to 11:00am answer all email schedule!  Arghhhh it's so frustrating to me! Then the part I have a hard time with is as well is one day a child gets sick and I need to stay home with them. So being very organized is good in theory, but doesn't always work especially for moms {me}. Are men lucky, do the wives take care of it all {and do it all}? Hmmmmm Moms, how do you all do it... I just love hearing what you do {no joke}.  I'm not saying I don't like spending time with my kids... I actually am obsessed with it, but do love to get away from them at times. I just need to learn how to juggle and do it gracefully! Maybe one day I will! Please tell me books, calendars, schedules... Anything that has helped you in my situation. I'm so open and honest I love any kind of feedback! Plus, Please don't think all moms are like me that own a business and have kids. I'm only speaking for myself...

  1. Hi

    Being a mom of two and working full time for a pretty demanding company I have come to realize that it is not so much organization that helps but prioritization. We are going to find ourselves juggling a lot of balls at once at times. our success and peace of mind will come when we have successfully identified the crystal balls from the rubber ones, caught the crystal balls and as much of the rubber as possible!

    Taking your post as an example, would it more beneficial for your business to dedicate the 30min to social media and make your customer wait on the sofa help or vice versa?

    Hope this helps and good luck juggling!
