Time Management For Work At Home Moms (12/28/2018)

Time management is a subject I’m asked about often. When I started my direct sales business over 9 years ago, I had all 3 of my children at home. Today, my youngest is in college, my oldest daughter is getting married, and my son is thriving. They don’t need me in the same way they did when I started my business, but they need me in different ways. I still have to manage my time, prioritize what matters, and make sure I’m consistently doing those income producing activities that will grow my business.

So how do I do it? With planning!

I’m a huge fan of calendar blocking. Did you know the actions I take to book parties, recruit new team members, chat with my leaders and team members…all those things are on my calendar so I don’t forget. Not only that, so many of those actions take only 15 minutes a few times a week.

That’s the thing about this business, it doesn’t have to take up a lot of your time. You only have to plan for it, make it a priority and do it consistently. The bookings will come. The new team members will come. And the best part— your family will be better for it! It’s so important to me that when my husband comes home, or my daughter wants to do wedding planning activities, that I can just go do it without sacrificing what I need for my business.

The best part of this business is the flexibility, but just because we’re flexible does not mean our business is optional! I talked a little bit about time management in a recent podcast with my new friend Tricia Edmundson, a top-level leader with Thirty-One Gifts. Like us, she has figured out how to achieve great harmony between her marriage, her children, and her business.

When you get to that place, everything just seems to click! So here are some of my best tips on time management.
