Yes I am throwing this in here because it is so important.
Taking time for yourself is going to help you with focus and stamina when it comes to your business.ย โœŒ๏ธ

๐Ÿ›€This can be just relaxing, exercising or even just a day of pampering can make a difference in how productive you are with your business.

๐Ÿ˜ตThink about how you work when you are tired, stressed, and just overall not feeling your best? I know for me I loose focus, and feel like I am running in circles.

๐Ÿ˜ŽTake time for yourself and I promise you will feel like a new person ready to take on the world.

Batch produce so you don’t drive yourself mad and stay efficient!!

So what does this mean??ย ๐Ÿค”
Well for one it does not mean spend all day doing your laundry!!๐Ÿ™„

Batch produce means focusing!ย ๐Ÿ‘€It kind of goes hand in hand with multitasking! Which as we know does not work!!๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

๐Ÿ’ปBatch producing means taking one thing and knocking out a bunch of it!! So for example, let’s look at your social media posts!! Sit down and write up a bunch of posts, gather you images and videos and have them ready to go!!

๐Ÿ“ฒBatch produce your tweets!! There are a lot of automated scheduling tools! So sit down for an hour and schedule your tweets for the next 24 hours!!

๐Ÿ’กDo you see how this can help you???

Let’s think what else can we batch produce!!ย ๐Ÿค”

How about your email!!๐Ÿ“งย I sit down every morning for 30 mins and clean up my email. Now I know it is not a long time but cleaning up your email is part of organizational strategies and you should be doing it daily. But instead of keeping your email open all the time, just get on there crush it for 30 mins or so and move on!

๐Ÿ”นBy batch producing your projects and to do list you are not only freeing up your time, but your mind as well. Knowing you have done what needs to be done takes a whole lot of stress away so that you can move forward with you day and your life!!

What are some other ways we might be able to batch produce??๐Ÿง๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Scope the situation, collect information, and sprinkle that pixie dust everywhere!

When it is summer time, school breaks, or if you have small children at home you are constantly running here and there. During these times can really put the mileage on the mom taxi for sure!!

So Let’s take a moment and think about this.ย ๐Ÿค”
How can we better utilize this time to grow our business?ย ๐Ÿ’ธ

๐Ÿ”นBoss mom tip for today is you scope the situation, collect information, and sprinkle that pixie dust everywhere you will see growth. Here is what I mean.ย ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐Ÿš—When you are out an about this is a good time to scope out new potentials.

๐Ÿ“ŒWho can you help?
๐Ÿ“ŒWho can benefit from what you are offering?
๐Ÿ“ŒStrike up new conversations ; even if it is with a cashier at a store.

๐Ÿ“ฒCollect information!! This is magical for sure!! By collecting information about who you interact with, who is under your radar, and who has a problem that you have a solution for you are taking giant steps to massive growth.

โœจSprinkle that pixie dust!

๐Ÿ“ŒDrop those little subtle clues.
๐Ÿ“ŒDrop those business cards.
๐Ÿ“ŒConnect with someone on Facebook
๐Ÿ“ŒHand out samples!

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งJust because we are out and about with our kiddos during the summer months does not mean we stop growing our dreams. We just have to get creative!!

Look at the situation in your life, the things you do daily and find ways to make new contacts, reach out to current ones and introduce some one to what you can do for them!!

Think outside the box and make it a great day!

Being a special needs mom means I have to be very
Now I could try and cram everything into these few hours but would that really be efficient? Probably not.ย ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธInstead I have a layed out plan of what I am going to do each day, especially days that he is at school.ย ๐Ÿ“‹

Trying to cram everything into a few hours is insane, so instead I have planned and mapped out what it is I need to do that I struggle getting when my son is here.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผThis Day 1 of Boss mom tip series!

When life gets crazy busy you tend to push aside those big projects or those business building things that need your entire focus.

When you have those quiet slots of time this is the time when you need to do those things that keep getting pushed aside. Decide what is most important, don’t try and squeeze all of them in, but choose what is most important that needs to be done . Then if you still have time when finished you can move on to the next. Remember balance is Golden and during some months and neither your family nor your business should suffer.

Are you a Mompreneur? How do you utilize your quiet time!
