As a work-from-home Mom, I enjoy a few amazing perks;
like ... working in pjs,
not having to fight traffic,
freedom to schedule my day,
and unlimited income potential - just to name a few.
Some days, right before the "Mom Hat" comes on, and when I need just a few more minutes to send an email, or make one more call,
BUT the family is back from school/work, and my attention is being pulled in every direction - What is one to do?!
I use to get frustrated, sometimes even annoyed with my family for interrupting. But they weren't in the wrong. No one was really.
Soooo.. I came up with a simple solution for work-from-home Moms everywhere!! I printed this sign off the other day, and if I am on "that" call, need "those" few more minutes, etc. I just hold up the sign with a smile!
The first time I used it, it was received with a smile, a nod, and a few more minutes that I really needed - easy!
It's easy to become distracted, to step away from your desk when you have unfinished work. Discipline is key when building your home based business, and sometimes using humor - like this sign - is just what you need to stay on track!
