Overcoming Work-at-Home Challenges – #WAHMStrategy Hour

by Susan

Work at Home Mom Strategy Hour

Learn How to Overcome the Challenges of Working at Home by Building Business & Personal Support Systems

Working at home and/or running a small business is one challenge after another. It’s one of the hardest things you’ll do… next to parenting.

Actually, I often think of the similarities of running a small business from home and parenting. Both are so ridiculously hard and each day is full of new problems. But ultimately, the rewards are immeasurable and you know you’re living the only life you’d want.

You Need Support and Systems

One of the most important similarities between parenting and working at home and/or running a small business is needing support.

Watch the replay of our recent Google Hangout where we talk honestly about how to set up personal and business support systems to handle the daily challenges you face working at home and/or running a small business.

In the seventh hangout in our series – Work At Home Moms Strategy Hour, Kelli Miller, Erica Mueller and I will help you plan and implement support systems to push past the personal and business challenges of running a small business and/or having a work-at-home job.
