Being a stay at home mom is a dream for some but others don’t have that option. My dream as a solo provider is to be a successful work from home mom! I’ve learned so much and still have a ways to go, but today I’d like to share some tips that have helped me on my journey. My top three areas of focus to achieve success are: Organization, Social Media presence and Savings.
Planner Pro helps me time block my day and prioritize all my tasks, appointments and notes. This is the best planner app I’ve found thus far and I don’t see myself looking for another.
Buffer helps me stay on social media without being on social media. We can lose so much time scrolling through news feeds. This app allows me to schedule posts in one sitting to all my social media accounts. All I have to do is respond and engage once they post. You can create your own schedule and track progress. My organic reach has increased tremendously since using this app.
Quick Books Self Employed is simply amazing. It is connected to my bank account and tracks all my purchases. From the app I can categorize my purchases between business and personal. That means no more receipt hoarding! It tracks my mileage and allows me to sort office visits from client visits etc. This app will make tax time effortless and adds up all my deductions for me.
I hope you found these tools as useful as I do. Now here’s some quick tips to get you though those crazy days with the kiddos.
1. Schedule appointments while kids are at school.
2. Try video calls if getting out of the house is an ordeal.
3.Join Facebook biz groups. They’re great for accountability and learning.
It’s important to work your business around your family life. Don’t make excuses, just create a routine and stick with it. Most of all just BREATHE! You got this girl.
