How to Balance Motherhood & Travel with Running an Online Business

How to Balance Motherhood & Travel with Running an Online Business

It’s hard balancing motherhood and running an online business at the same time.

If your child is young, you may find yourself having to squeeze in one or two hours of work each day while your baby is asleep and you’re meant to be sleeping too.

If your child is a little older, you may find yourself putting them in daycare a couple of days a week so you can work in peace (but getting chastised from family members who think you shouldn’t put your child in daycare because you “work from home.”)

Sound familiar?

Today’s guest, Alarice Stuart, is the owner of a design studio called Brand Babes Studio. She’s also a single parent to a toddler, a podcast host, and a regular traveler.

In this episode and article, she shares:

  • Why she believes work/life balance is a myth

  • Her top 3 tips for avoiding burnout

  • How to make time for your passions even when you’re busy being a mum and running a business

  • Why you shouldn’t feel guilty about putting your child in daycare while you work

It's Hard to Make Six Figures Without Doing This First

It's Hard to Make Six Figures Without Doing This First

What if you need to make six figures to live the lifestyle you crave? Maybe you want to retire your husband from his soul-sucking day job? Take the vacations you want? And just feel safe and secure?

I want to tell you it is totally achievable. You have GOT this.

But here's the thing:

You can't make six figures without organizing your business first. In fact, if by some miracle you DO, you'll be wishing you hadn't.

Here's why.

To make six figures from your service-based business, you'll need to either:

  1. Raise your pricing

  2. Take on more clients

Either way, you need streamlined, simple business systems and processes to pull it off without driving yourself mad or disappointing your high-paying clients.

Let’s start by discussing charging premium prices.

If you want to charge premium prices, (eg. 12 x $8k for your service = about $100k), then you'll need to provide a premium client experience. Your client process needs to be smooth, simple and efficient from the moment a potential client reaches out to the moment you part ways.

4 Ways To Set Boundaries With Your Clients

4 Ways To Set Boundaries With Your Clients

“Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”

That is one of my favourite quotes by the wonderful Dolly Parton. I love it because it’s so true for most solopreneurs. We can get so caught up in pleasing our clients that we start to blur the line between work and personal time and suddenly find ourselves working at 9pm on a friday night, or telling our husbands to take the kids out on Saturday because we’re too busy with work.

In this episode, I’m talking about 4 ways you can set boundaries with your clients so you never feel expected to put your work above your family or your free time again. You’ll also learn why setting boundaries is not strict, how to do it in a respectful and kind way, and how to make sure your clients stick to them!
