Running an online business is not all butterflies and rainbows, but I have managed to find a balance, rhythm and a freedom that makes it all worthwhile. There are seasons of hustle, but by creating good systems and working my hours around my family schedule, I have made a business that is profitable, flexible and life giving. Within 6 months of starting my business, I was able to work 20 hours a week and hit the 6-figure mark and I want to teach YOU to do the same in part 4 of our Christian Business Podcast series Captivated: Courses & Coaching.
If you have kids, it is best to create a work calendar that coincides with their school calendar. Then you have the flexibility to be less busy when they are home or on break. The beauty of an online business is that YOU control your hours, launches and busy seasons.
Create a Support System:
There are going to be seasons in your business when you need more support, like during a big launch. Be sure to communicate with your spouse and family your expectations and needs ahead of time so they can adjust their schedule or help a little more with the kids or house. Clearly setting expectations in your marriage is key for making your business run smoothly as well. Ask for help! This might look like hiring extra childcare, a house cleaner or a virtual assistant.
I love working and creating, but sometimes I need to take a step back and have discipline to say no or to stop working to spend more time with my family. Other times I need discipline to complete a big task or launch. This can be a tricky balance, but by taking a hard look at your priorities, you can figure out where you need to be most disciplined in order to have the balance you desire. Often it means that you have to hunker down and hustle during certain seasons so that you can have breaks and down time with the kids when they are home.
Every business has seasons, and it isn’t always easy. But often when you put in the hard work and are disciplined, you will reap the rewards and be able to enjoy seasons of rest and fruitfulness.
