Becoming an entrepreneur means having less free time for yourself and the same can be said of being a parent. A lot of people believe that is difficult to balance between the two well but it is possible. There a number of tips that have been shared by other successful “parentrepreneurs” on how to balance between the two important areas of life. Below are some of the useful tips that any parentrepreneur can emulate to achieve the important balance.
It becomes hard for you to figure out which commitments are to be prioritized as either a parent or an entrepreneur. Most people in such a situation will want to meet both their commitments, but it is important to be realistic. In order to ensure that you make time for your family despite the heavy schedule ahead, a back-up plan and routine would be necessary. This will ensure that you fulfill all your commitments to both your job and family.
Hacking Your Time
Productivity hacks are supposed to help people become more productive and this is especially important for the working parents. A number of time hacks could enable you do all your work day efficiently. It is possible to prepare two meals at once, carry out online shopping instead of going to the store and clearing work in batches. This can only be possible if all time distractions are eliminated.
Outsourcing, Delegating and Growing Your Network
Family activities can at times get in the way of some business obligations or vice versa. It is in this regard that you have to hire or even train a reliable person who can be able to step in on your behalf when it is hard to make it. You will also get to meet a number of parent networks in the form of parents who take their kids to the same school, marching bands or similar soccer practices. These parents could become great contacts that will prove valuable along the way.
