3 Work at Home Challenges Moms Have to Overcome
Whether you have a landbased business that needs attention or you’re working a few hours a day freelancing online, there are some common challenges that most work at home moms need to overcome.
Everything from facebook to a fluffy pillow can be a distraction, especially if the weather is nice and there’s a cool breeze coming in. Distractions can also come in the form of the kids running to you for playtime. Managing to find time to work despite all these can be a challenge. All it takes is choosing the best time of the day to do the work (for internet-based jobs), and delegating some of the work (for landbased businesses).
2. Systems Not Working
There’s only so much you can do to prevent systems from breaking down. You can always find the time and the budget to upgrade your systems, but small problems like figuring out how to speed up computer could crop up. Worse, the internet could go bonkers and you’re left with no choice but to work offline. But the good news is that because these are systems, there are always some people that can help you. Have the number of your technician on your speed dial just in case you need to fix your computer quick before your deadline.
3. Finding the Motivation to Keep Working
Because you work at home, and sometimes in your pajamas, things could get monotonous. Suddenly, you envy the people that have to dress up nice every day to work their nine to five jobs. Being self-employed can make you feel like you’re living inside a bubble with a clock and your business to keep you company. Find time to go out and spend that hard-earned cash on yourself and your family. Have a hobby you can count on to take your mind off the stress of working.
