I am a mom of 6 running a business from home. This is new for me. I have spent the last 12 years focusing solely on the care of my home and my kids. My kids range from 1 and-a-half to 12. Now, it is time to get back to the business of dreaming. How will I manage my time? Currently, I am still homeschooling 3 of them, but next school year, 4 of my precious gems will be going to school. This will free up a lot of my time. So far, my best time management skills have been fitting in snippits of work, in between all of my household responsiblities and responding to the needs of my family. As I write this article, it is a Saturday. I have 1 baby down for a nap, the 3 and 4 year olds are driving their Jeep in the front yard, the 8 year old is playing and listening to an audiobook in her room, and my 2 oldest children are pulling out the t-post fence I installed 6 years ago. My dear husband is mowing the lawn. It is important to be organized and resourceful, if you want to manage your family and be an entrepreneur. These snippits of time have been working very well. I am surprised at how much I have been able to accomplish by setting aside time for myself. They are usually about 1 hour chunks of time, but they do add up. My three oldest children are responsible for chores, which allows me more time. They take care of the kitchen dishes, counters, table, floors and bathrooms. I do the laundry. Then I separate the laundry by bedroom and give it to the kids to fold and put away. I encourage you to find some chunks of time yourself. It is possible to be an entrepreneur, even while being a stay-at-home mom.
