With as busy as we are, tending to our business, family, chores, exercise, paying bills, spring cleaning, etc., it's hard to find time to fit everything in that is important...or is it?
Do we as women make excuses and make it seem like we have to do it all? Why does that seem so different to what men do? Do we over extend our abilities to finish our daily and weekly tasks and goals? Do we do this so we can get recognition for what it is we DO accomplish?
I have not felt as if what I do is any different or more important than what my husband does. It is up to us to ASK for assistance in completing chores or paying the bills or helping with the spring cleaning.
If you are a single woman entrepreneur or single mother living by yourself, you have the bulk of the work square on your shoulders, but there are still solutions to assist you in striking a healthy balance between working your business and enjoying your leisure time.
Ask yourself, how much is your time worth, on an hourly basis? Would it be $30/hr.? $280/hr.? $1,497/hr.? Ok, even if you determined your hourly worth at $20/hr., where would that hour be best spent? Working and growing your business, right?
So, why would you spend that hour doing the dishes and mopping the kitchen floor? Could you hire that out once a week to a housekeeping service at $8/hr. and re-direct your time towards a more profitable hour for yourself?
Now, the trick is to ensure that the hour you free up by "outsourcing" daily or weekly tasks is actually used optimally to grow your business and create more profit. Do not use that hour for mundane busy work.
