your guide to maybe just a little more sanity!
(coupon codes excluded)
Working, creative moms live a life that few others understand unless they have walked a mile in our shoes – the mental load we carry is immense! Clients, emails, editing, blogging, social media, diapers, doctor appointments, meal planning, errands, friends, community, volunteering, etc…. On top of that, be a good wife, remember self care, nap when the baby is napping (hahahaha). You never get to turn it off. It’s like a slow IV drip of adrenaline running constantly through you. How do you juggle all of this, and do it remotely WELL? How do you leave room for relationships, goals, vision, or creativity when you’re just trying to survive?
This course does NOT have all the answers! (Bet you weren’t expecting that in the description). This course does, however, have survival tactics and what I have found works for me. I am a busy mom of a 1.5, 3, and 4-year old who works 35-50 hours a week from home with almost no child care. Through many years of trial and error, I have developed some systems to navigate this season while still maintaining healthy relationships with my husband and friends.
This course will go over everything from communication tactics, boundaries, time blocking, housekeeping (literally!), managing the mental load, scheduling out your work and personal life (with breathing room!), keeping up with social media and advertising, as well as the bonus topics of organizing your own personal photo albums, contributing to stock agencies, and a detailed walk through of how to have perfectly organized archival systems of all your images. We also talk about what goal planning looks like, and I share a bunch of silly, yet effective, mom hacks I’ve come up with to deal with little things like the copious piles of lego and scattered socks I keep finding strewn about my home!
