Mom, wife, friend, boss, business owner…all the titles and roles can make your head spin! Our family just had 2 months of back-to-back kid sicknesses (yes, 2 whole months!!) that forced me into taking a step back in my business…but the only way I was able to do that is by following a few exercises to simplify my business that I lean into when it gets overwhelming.
First things first, focus on the people in your life that need you – those sick babies need your love and attention and you deserve a little TLC yourself! Step into that role and outsource anything else you can in your business that it’s not critical YOU do yourself (side note: this is why SOPs are so important!).
If you’re a solopreneur or don’t have the ability to outsource, simplification looks like only focusing on the tasks that directly bring you money. It’s OK to hit pause on the things that don’t currently bring you a ton of revenue – you can always push play once life slows down a bit. But for the time being, you need to keep making money while opening up some space in your life, so focusing on your money-makers is where it’s at.
This is why it’s so important to make it a priority to start building up a support team so you have the flexibility to step back when you need to – if it’s just you, it can be a lot trickier to take a step back!
The main takeaway that I want you to leave with is that times of necessary “mom duty” require you to streamline, focus on the revenue, and put your attention on you and your babies.
If you want to build a team that supports this kind of lifestyle, reach out! I offer a few different coaching opportunities to help you build your team and business processes so you can have a business that doesn’t require YOU to be in it day in and day out.
