30 Tips for business moms: Part 1/6

  1. Expand your network of contacts and meet other business moms. Make networking to get in touch with other women like you. You can do it in person through events, or through the internet. On Facebook you will find groups that may interest you; Meetup is another platform where you can join existing groups of business moms in your area, or even create a new group yourself and propose events.
  2. Ask for help when you need it. Do not get carried away by pride and wanting to show that you can achieve it alone. We all need someone’s help from time to time. The good news is that in the case of business moms, the circle to go to is always wide: from your partner to other members of your family, passing through neighbors and staff of your children’s school. Each person in your immediate circle can take it upon themselves to lend a hand when it is impossible for you: by running errands, buying them or assisting your children with homework.
  3. Hire a virtual assistant or a freelancer to help you with your work. You can hire specialized services for a few hours and adjusted to your budget. Do not think that having a virtual assistant is something reserved only for big businessmen: on platforms like Upwork , Fiverr or Freelancer.com you can find an assistant that suits your needs for very little money.
  4. Use time management tools . There are numerous free applications that allow you to keep track of your activities. Toggl , Remember the Milk and Rescue Time are just three examples, but a quick online search will allow you to find the one that best suits your preferences.
  5. Prioritize your tasks. Start your day doing the most important things for both your business and your family. Remember that not necessarily the most urgent is the most important.
