Working at home takes a lot of adjustment for the whole family. Sometimes you just need a few good tips to help you through the situation. Check out these 5 tips for new work at home moms.
5 Tips for New Work at Home Moms
#1. You can’t do it all.
I learned a long time ago that you simply cannot do it all. You can’t have happy kids, a clean house, and happy clients. Unless you hire someone to clean your house and who wouldn’t love that? Keep a daily reminder close by to remind you of this life lesson.
#2. Create a Schedule
Way back when I first started working from home I learned that I needed to create a schedule. Now I only work when the kids are sleeping. I often get asked if I’m sleep deprived. Why, yes I am. However, it helps me keep my sanity by not having to balance everything during the day.
#3. Know Your Worth
When I first started working from home I worked for very low wages. I couldn’t find clients that saw my worth because I didn’t know my worth. My best advice to you is to know exactly what you’re worth, so you can start off on the right foot from the beginning.
#4. Never Stop Marketing
This was one piece of advice that I learned from the very beginning. Even when you think you have enough clients, never stop marketing. You can always let the lower paying clients go. It’s nice to have a choice in who you’re working with.
#5. Never Sacrifice Your Family
You will have many jobs and a lot of pressure that comes with those jobs. My best advice is to never sacrifice your family for those jobs. You can’t ever get that time with your family back.
Working from home isn’t for those who give up easily. You will come head to head with a lot of challenges. If you’re ready to take the leap into the work at home life, make sure you follow these tips. Also, stay tuned for many more tips coming your way!
