Express Employment Professionals is honouring hard-working mothers this Mother’s Day with tips on how to raise a family and run a business simultaneously
Balancing a business as a mother is hard work. Working moms who put their all into both parts of their lives – the businesswoman and the mother – often feel they aren’t giving either enough attention. This Mother’s Day, the Express Employment Professionals team wish to honour the hard-working moms out there with some tips for raising a family and running a business stress-free.
Your time is precious
Working moms are so used to taking care of everything that they begin to spend less and less time on themselves. With making deadlines at work and looking after your home, self-care eventually goes out the window. Valuing your me-time and “booking” time-out is essential as both a mother and a businesswoman: if your own cup isn’t full, you have a chance of filling everyone else’s.
Assemble your village
It takes a village to raise a child – the same is true for a business. Surround yourself with a support network of people who are ready to cheer you on, give advice and jump in to help when you have too much on your plate. Other working moms, friends, family and virtual communities can be invaluable in building the support structure you need.
Ask for help – and accept it
As moms and businesswomen, we are used to being the one everyone turns to for help – whether it’s shopping for last-minute school supplies or taking on a challenging client presentation. This sometimes means we forget to ask for help, even when we really need it. It also means we struggle to accept help when it is offered. But you don’t need to do it all alone: reduce the strain by delegating and asking others to take on some of your tasks so that you can focus on important ones.
At Express Employment Professionals, we stand by working moms and salute the amazing work they do. Whether you’re a working mom looking to hire new talent for your thriving business or are looking for a great new job opportunity to achieve your career goals, our team of experts can help.
