In today’s episode, Anna looks at these five aspects once you come to the point of getting back to work and managing your business with a baby.
(2:33) “After taking that time completely off following the birth of your baby, when you do start getting back into the swing of things and checking those emails and social channels, you may quickly get caught up in the day-to-day pressures of running your business. When each minute that you spend on your business means a minute away from your baby (and your partner) or other things at home, it’s so essential that you are clear on what is important and why.”
(4:37) “Once you have the boundaries clearly defined, you have to actually stick to them that where we get into a bit of trouble I think! That means doing things like closing the door to your home office, shutting down your laptop or turning off the notifications on your phone when you’re not ‘supposed to’ be working. It also means learning to say “no” to professional projects and clients that conflict with your priorities and working times.”
(9:37) “After all this planning to set yourself up for success, clarifying your priorities, and getting the help you need, the truth is that things are still going to go ‘wrong’. Expect the unexpected, be ready to throw your plan out the window.”
