If you're too busy, working yourself to death, not having the freedom and adventure you desire in your life... then you're running your business wrong.
Ouch. I know. I have BEEN THERE and I too got the loving smackdown from my own coach a while back.
Being that "busy" means you're likely spending a lot of time and energy on the wrong tasks, and you want to spend time only on what activities generate income or increase happiness and expand your energy.
(I know this income-generating part seems difficult to figure out in the beginning, but it really isn't super difficult, and it's one of those things I help my clients with.)
The Ban Burnout Fix?
Create a SCHEDULE for yourself and your family, and things may start to look up. It will take some tweaking, but you can get there, ladies!
This will help you get all of the steps in place to create that schedule and everything else you need in your business.

Here are the top 3 tips for creating your bosslady, successful entrepreneur/ mompreneur schedule:
- Schedule in what you LOVE doing first, your personal life non-negotiables (family, friends, self care, wellness, leisure) and WHEN you'll be doing it. In pen. It's non-negotiable. Morning walk? You bet. Time for happy hour on Thursday? Absolutely. Barre? F*ck Yeah! Get it? Okay, your turn. What is non-negotiable makes your heart happy I want to do this all of the time in your life?
- Look at the time you have left over. That is the time that you can use for your business. Leave 5 hours in your business for your creative time. Schedule your other essential, income-generating business activities in then. Nothing else.
- Once you've scheduled in both, if you feel overwhelmed - pick the top 5 things you dislike the most out of those activities, and REMOVE THEM. No questions asked. No judgements made. You do NOT need permission to use your time and energy efficiently. Just do it. Liberate yourself! Your turn. Go. Don't feel bad. There are NO judgements here.
BONUS TIP: is there a LOT that you don't like doing or aren't good at falling into your schedule? It may be time to delegate and automate even more! Stay tuned for my next blog post where I'll talk more about that. (Plus, you'll get more updates and awesome tips from me when you sign up for my email list. I don't spam b/c, I hate spam and believe we should, obviously, maximize our time. Promise.)
So... how are you feeling after that? That was the short and sweet version of how I like to manage my time and how I finally created a great schedule that works for us.
Now you have your schedule. You have your opportunity to be consistent and persistent. You have your opportunity to bring your best self to the table because you're well taken care of.
