Working from home isn’t all yoga pants and coffee breaks.
Every minute of the day we’re distracted by hungry little monsters (“Mama, more milk!”), piles of laundry that we just can’t seem to get to the bottom of, a phone buzzing with constant social media alerts.
How do we find time to get any work done at all? *deep breath*
Establishing productive habits is the key ingredient to this work from home thing.
In order to be successful we have to find the little ways to be more productive, because they all add up.
I’ve talked with many other home-based business owners to get their tips for being productive.
Just adding a few of these to your routine can help you find a better balance and get more stuff done!
Get started on work in the a.m. before everyone else wakes up.
Hire help to watch your kids for a couple of hours during the week so you can work.
Prepare meals ahead of time so that you can spend less time cooking.
True story: In 2016 I closed my business for 1 year after having our son and it was the BIGGEST mistake I've ever made. I totally get how overwhelming it can be to build an online business while raising a family... um, 3am work nights fueled by a pot of coffee - been there!
Which is why I've dedicated Sugar Studios + this blog to helping entrepreneurs like YOU build the business you've been dreaming of.
