Moms In Network Marketing - Can We Do It All?

by : Angela Wills

Mom, does your day look something like this:

_ Bring the baby to playgroup
_ Wash dishes
_ Respond to emails
_ Play outside
_ Make phone calls to leads
_ Make dinner
__ ETC!!

There's no doubt about it that moms are busy! So why the heck would a mom who's already overbooked add more to her plate by starting a business in Network Marketing?

Over and over again I hear moms saying they don't want to put their children in daycare and that they do want something that is flexible to their needs. A good network marketing company can offer that, a good job most times can't.

Over 80% of the people in the Network Marketing industry are women, and a large percentage are mothers.

How do they do it?

It's not easy to be a mom running a business but it can be done and it's definitely worth it! Here are some tips to keep your business (and you mom) running smoothly:

Tip #1: Take Care of Yourself

You need to take good care of yourself in order to run a smooth household and business. Get enough rest, eat well, get outdoors! These things are easy to forget when we get really busy.

Tip #2: Divide and Conquer

When there is no set time for anything and everything needs to be done, we tend to "save the worst for last". This means the last may likely never get done. Divide up your work and have a plan, and do the worst first to get it out of the way!

Tip #3: Involve The Family

If you have kids get them involved in your business. Craft shows and fairs are great places to really let them see what you do and give them a chance to really help out as well. And don't forget hubby! Let him know what's going on in your business.

Tip #4: Take a Break

When things feel a bit too hectic, give yourself permission to take a break! When you come back to what you were doing with a fresh mind it often will be the boost you needed to get it finished.

Tip#5: Get Help

You don't have to do it alone. If you need help ask for it. There are ways to outsource your work if you are getting too busy (and making money!) so keep in mind that's always an option.

Yes, we're moms, and we're business women, but we're also women too. Don't forget to give yourself time to breathe, your business and your family will be the better for it!
