Beginner’s guide to motherhood and entrepreneurship

March 21, 2024

Today I’m going to show you how to find work-life harmony in motherhood and entrepreneurship

I remember when I first started to learn about motherhood and entrepreneurship. I’d go from searching facebook groups, google and blog posts trying to understand finding work-life harmony in motherhood and entrepreneurship actually worked. It was super confusing, overwhelming, and frustrating.

In this guide I’ll cut out all the noise and show you exactly how to find a rhythm that works for motherhood and your business. 

So what is work-life harmony in motherhood and entrepreneurship, exactly?

It is finding the right rhythm that works for you in motherhood and business where you are able to feel fulfilled, accomplished and present in both areas of life.

For example, batching out 4 blog posts for March so you have the time to do devotions with your kids every night. 

Now that you understand work-life harmony in motherhood and entrepreneurship, it’s time for me to explain more about how to get started with it.

Achieving work-life harmony as a mother and entrepreneur involves intentional steps to balance the demands of business with the challenges of motherhood.

Bring God into the Picture

God is the center of it all. We need to bring God into the picture in our business and motherhood. Start by asking in prayer for guidance and wisdom on what God wants you to continue in motherhood and business or pivot/let go in motherhood and business.

Example: Praying when you wake up and before you go to sleep for motherhood and business. 

Define Your Priorities

Begin by clarifying your priorities both in your business and personal life. What are the non-negotiables for you as a mother? What are your key business goals? Understanding your priorities will guide your decisions and help you allocate your time and energy effectively.

Example: your focus this week is taking care of your kids and finishing the website sales page.

Establish Boundaries

Set clear boundaries between your work and personal life to prevent burnout and maintain balance. Designate specific work hours and family time, and communicate these boundaries to your clients, employees, and family members.

For example, you might decide to dedicate mornings to focused work time and afternoons to quality time with your children.

Delegate and Outsource

Recognize that you can’t do it all on your own, and that’s okay. Delegate tasks in your business that can be handled by others, whether it’s hiring employees, outsourcing projects, or enlisting the help of virtual assistants. Likewise, involve your partner, family members, or childcare providers in childcare responsibilities to lighten your load.

Example: asking your spouse to watch your kids while you work on Saturday.

Embrace Flexibility

Most of us became business owners to have flexibility in our own lives.. Allow yourself to adapt and adjust your schedule as needed to accommodate unexpected events or changes in your children’s routines. Remember that flexibility is a powerful tool for maintaining harmony between your work and family life. You are not an employee anymore so your business doesn’t have to resemble one.

Example: rescheduling a client’s call because you need to take your son to the pediatrician. 

Take care of yourself

Prioritize self-care to replenish your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Make time for activities that nourish your soul, whether it’s reading the bible, being part of a small group, exercise, meditation, reading, or spending time outdoors. Remember that taking care of yourself is essential for your overall happiness and productivity.

Example: doing a section of the Bible Project every day.

Set Realistic Expectations

Be realistic about what you can accomplish in a day and be gentle with yourself when things don’t go as planned. Accept that there will be days when you feel overwhelmed or when your productivity is lower than usual, and that’s okay. Focus on progress rather than perfection, and celebrate your achievements, no matter how small.

Example: Not finishing writing up emails for the month and needing another couple of days to write them out.

Now you have everything you need to get started with motherhood and entrepreneurship.
