The personal chef may be a stretch, but what systems do you have in place at home to help you succeed in your business? The reality is that no one can do it all themselves so stick to what you are good at and outsource the rest. Spending 3 hours with a client is time much better spent than 3 hours dusting and vacuming. I realize that it all needs to be done, but maybe not by you.
How do you feel about the child care options that you have for your children? The reality is that we can not be there all the time for our children but if you have an option that you feel really good about it makes it much easier to focus on the task at hand when you are working. We have done it all in our house from a nanny to baby sitters to daycares and pre schools. Just like everything else with children, as they grow and change what worked yesterday doesn’t neccessarily work today. We had a nanny in the beginning which was great, but after a while the boys started to get antsy because they needed more interaction with other kids. So we switched to a daycare / preschool environment and now they run in the front door every day excited to be with their friends.
What are your best secrets for getting things done at home so that you can be focused when you are at work?
