As many of us know, being a mom is a full-time job. Having a full-time job on top of being a full-time mom can be a lot to handle sometimes, but it definitely isn’t impossible. Running a business and being the mom of two girls is something that I have learned to juggle. Here are a few tips that I can give you based on my experience.

1.Get organized.

If you do not have a calendar, you need one. It is an essential. I suggest color coordinating that calendar as well. I have a different color for each person in my family, work, etc. I also have a paper copy of this and an electronic copy. This way I can always have a copy of everything I need to remember. 

2.Don’t multitask.

You are probably thinking “How will I complete everything if I don’t multitask?” It’s possible. What you need to do is give 100% of your attention to one thing at a time. For example, when I am working I am focused completely on getting my work done. When I am home, that is strictly family time. Set limits for yourself so that you can give your all to one specific project at a time. 

3.Set goals on a quarterly basis. 

Many people set goals when the new year roles around. Either you complete them or you don’t, then give yourself another New Year’s resolution the next year. I give myself goals to accomplish four times a year. This keeps me on top of things that I know I want to complete. I also do this to give myself a shorter timeline. I know that I only have a few months to reach my goal, and I devote those months to completing it.
