Have you ever tried to work on your business with a toddler at your feet, a partner off at work and an ever growing pile of emails and missed telephone calls? Welcome to my day and that of many other mumpreneures around.
When I was first pregnant I went to great lengths setting up my office to make sure that it was “child friendly”. Naively I had thought that by bringing my baby into a world where I work from home, she would adjust and understand that quiet is needed when I am on the telephone and patience is required when I need to answer an urgent email. Now I just look back and laugh! What was I thinking?
My daughter is 2.5 years now; and realistically it took me almost 20 months to figure out how to wear all 3 of my hats and not feel like I was letting anyone down.
