If you are a work at home entrepreneur like myself, I'm sure you just spit out that last sip of java you had in your mouth in complete laughter. While yes, from the outside we may appear to be living the life! I totally get this hypothesis since I signed up for this gig thinking those same exact thoughts!!! However, I think it's safe to say the only truth in the statement above is the fact I get to sip my favorite highly caffeinated tea while rockin' my early 00's Juicy Tracksuit I refuse to part with!

My solution to stop pain now?
Curamin® is an award winning pain relief product that has provided life changing benefits for hundreds of thousands of people like myself around the world!!!! A #1 Selling Brand, that is safe, effective and non-addictive, Curamin® has been voted #1 for Pain Relief.
The Key to Curamin® is that it doesn’t just mask occasional pain, it gets to the source and stops it. The biggest selling point to me however was that this is a safe, effective, non-addictive herbal formula- different from over-the-counter pain meds and prescription drugs that can sometimes have negative side effects!!! No more scary labels and constantly wondering if you will be the next statistic.
Hello Curamin®. Goodbye Pain.
We always such a pleasant experience shopping at Herbs R-4-U! Whenever my daughter accompanies me, the store owner always gives her a free organic fruit wrap! Free snacks are always a hit with kids so Herbs R-4-U and the bank are her favorite places to stop on errand days lol.
I can't tell you how easy it can be to start checking emails on your phone right from the comfort of you own bed (before you’re even fully awake). Sounds great to plunge into your day’s work without taking the time to get dressed—or leaving your bed. Unfortunately you’ll be surprised by how easy it is to get sucked into rolling over for a break as soon as you get hit with that not-so-fun assignment & find yourself still in your pajamas when your kids get off the bus that afternoon. Now that the kids are home, this means all that work that should of completed during your nap session will have to be done after bedtime when you should be getting your beauty sleep yourself! Make a conscious effort to leave your phone untouched until you’ve completed your morning routine (make the bed, wash your face, brush your teeth) and change into a tracksuit you didn’t sleep in. This will motivate you to work from your desk and get things done on time to avoid late nights trying to meet that deadline!
Set a precedent that your scheduled work time is only for working. Let your kids know that you are unavailable to play during this time & let those friends know that you aren’t free for impromptu chats & random lunch dates just because you work from home! I can't tell you how many times I've had to explain that I do indeed have deadlines so I can't just run off to Starbucks to chat on a whim. I promise this will really help to set boundaries between your personal and work life. Otherwise you end up feeling frustrated by the lack of work you’re getting done and left with disappointed loved ones who aren’t sure when they can connect with you.
Your at home business will flourish the second you start planning things out! Don't have that type of workload yet? They say dress for the job you want, not for the job you have, so if being a 6 digit blogger is who you want to be, pump that content out regardless if you have 5 or 5,000 readers! When your work load picks up due to your hard work and dedication, creating that to-do list the night before will be how you get it all done and leave all of your clients satisfied with your killer work! Nothing feels more satisfying that seeing a To-do list with every last thing checked off!!!
Scheduling out your post and ads in your planner will become a life saving tactic when the busy, holiday season hits. It will be the only way you prevent yourself from becoming one of those god awful spam-bot site owners! Your planner will eventually never leave your side during working hours since it's the only way you make sure to get it all done and on time!
If you’re self employed, it can feel like you’re “on the clock” 24/7, especially if you're a freelancer! The problem is that being on the clock doesn’t mean you’re getting paid for your work that very second and it can really burn you out in the long run! Make sure to take some time off. I'm not saying book a spa weekend with the girls, unless you really want to!!! But set days of the week off!!! For example, I do not work Saturdays and during slow seasons (Jan/Feb) no Sundays! I also take a half day on Fridays! If you have clients who contact you at all hours, enforcing some kind of office hours (if you can). Most moms who work at home do so because they want to spend more time with their families, so make taking time to be with your family without work distractions a priority!
