1. Get the Kids Involved
If you’re working from home chances are that you have kids, but what do you do with the kids? Keep them busy helping you out.
Do envelopes need to be stuffed? Do stamps need to be placed on mail? Do packages need to be packaged up?
It’s a great way to save on money and keep you working and connected to your family at the same time.
As an added bonus, you will be building memories you and your children will share for a lifetime, and they may learn a new skill and better work ethic.
2. Communicate While On the Move
In the digital age, communication is an ongoing sport. No matter where we are in the world, our screens alert us to emails and messages. If you’re the busy mom on the go with lots on your to-do list, you can use digital marketing to remain in touch with your clients no matter where you are.
Whether you’re at the park, at a baseball game, or in the supermarket, you can respond to clients and take on new clients via digital portals that are easy, save money, and are free to use.
3. Use Software That Keeps Track of Your Business
There are many software programs and apps out there that can help you keep track of the growth of your business.

4. Manage Your Time Wisely
Get a day planner. It will be your best friend.
Write everything down so that you can see your week and day spread out before you.
You will know what amount of time you need to dedicate to each task and you will never fall behind. It will help you to be available to your family, or simply to yourself.
5. Rise and Shine
All successful people of the world have one thing in common: they all get up early. While most people are still sleeping, successful people are awake and making things happen.
Getting an early start to the day and leaving some space for your own private time in the morning will help you centre yourself for the full day ahead.
The earlier you start, the earlier you will get it all done, and you will have all the time necessary to spend with the family without sacrificing your own success.
