Being a business owner is an awesome thing. For me it gives me the flexibility I need. For example, I am also a mom of two young boys (7 and 4) who are full of life and energy. The summer has been a challenge keeping up with my business and them. So I made a conscious decision not to load up during the summer and wait until they are back in school. What does this have to do with business. Well for me I would be just spinning my wheels trying to meet obligations I could not meet. So I needed to set realistic goals and sometimes adjust.
So today was their first day in school. They had a blast. And so did I. I had two great meetings, I worked on a project for a client, picked up items for a silent auction I am helping with and now I am taking care of some administrative stuff (kids are in bed). All in all it is a great day. Already my week is booked solid. For me when the day is done and I go to bed, I will know that my clients are being taken care of and my kids are well. It's good to be back in the saddle again, although I like to rest sometimes with my little guys.
