Welcome to the season of chaos, mom entrepreneurs!
As a mom business owner, you’re already familiar with the delicate juggling act that comes with managing your business and your home life. But during the holidays, this balancing act can become even more of a challenge.
Between completing year-end tasks, attending holiday functions, and shopping for presents, it can be hard to find time to focus on your business. But don’t worry — we’ve got some tips to help you get through it all.
3 Tips for Mom Business Owners to Survive & Thrive During the Holidays
1. START EARLY
The key to success is preparation — so start planning ahead for the holidays as soon as possible.
- Set up an editorial calendar that outlines what you will post on social media and when, so you can maximize visibility without sacrificing quality or taking too much time away from other tasks.
- In addition, utilize a budget so you can manage your finances efficiently during this hectic period.
- And finally, ensure all of your end-of-year tasks are squared away before December rolls around!
2. DELEGATE WHEN POSSIBLE
When it comes to running a business, multitasking is also often necessary. But if you want to survive the holiday season unscathed as a mompreneur, try delegating certain tasks whenever possible.
For example, if there are any mundane admin duties on your plate (such as data entry or filing paperwork) that someone else could do instead of you, hire them! That way you can free up more time for yourself during this busy season.
3. TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
It’s important to remember that self-care isn’t just a luxury; it’s necessary in order for you to succeed in life and business!
So while it might seem impossible at first glance, make sure that you find time each day (even if it’s only 10 minutes!) where you can just relax and unwind without feeling guilty about doing nothing “productive.” (Since we all know that self-care is productive.)
This small break will help keep your stress levels in check while allowing you time to recharge so that when it comes time to tackle those holiday and work tasks again, you’ll be ready and raring to go!
The holidays are always a hectic period for everyone — especially mom entrepreneurs who have twice as much on their plates! But by planning ahead and delegating when possible, along with taking some well-deserved breaks here and there throughout the season, you’ll be able to survive (and thrive!) during this chaotic period of family events and year-end projects alike!
