How To Balance Motherhood, Marriage & Business

Nikki and I have a candid conversation about navigating motherhood, marriage, and entrepreneurship. We talk about finding that sweet spot where you’re comfortable with the attention you give to your business and the quality, present time that you have with your family. We highlight how to set firm boundaries and delegate tasks within your business and household, and how to overcome the discomfort that so many of us have around accepting help.    We also touch on what default parenting is and how to lay the foundation of teamwork when it comes to raising your kids and maintaining your home. Plus, we talk about the “why am I doing this?” battle that comes up when you feel pulled in so many directions and how to stay focused on the long-term vision and payoff of being a business owner.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Celebrating every stage of motherhood and entrepreneurship for what it has to offer  Recognizing ways that you’re selling yourself short  How we utilize time blocking to create uninterrupted work and family time  Simple ways to set boundaries in your contract, especially as a service provider  A different way to stretch your mindset around your purpose in owning a business  Tips for avoiding resentment and petty arguments with your partner    RESOURCES Join the waitlist for my new HR app, Quinn!
