dividing line can get smudged for work at home moms. To eliminate the tug
at the elbow from your little one, solutions need to be found to restore
that line between the business and the family. Separation is important to
your sanity and to reducing work related stress.
work from home there still arenít enough hours in the day to get things done.
Deadlines for projects hang over your head and dinner still has to be made.
Your clients depend on you and so does you family.
you are a work at home mom, itís hard to separate work from family life.
Not only are you working out of the place where you live, but, depending on
the nature of your business, you may not have to leave your home all day.
If you run an online business, you could be running a load of laundry or
fixing lunch between business teleconferences. This can be goodÖ and bad.
the current situation. If you use your dining room as your base of operations,
you may want to consider alternative options. If the dining room still gets
used for dinner or other projects then it is not exclusively your office, so you
are uprooted several times each day, for meals. That isnít effective, and it
isnít a comfortable working environment.
home office needs a room with a door where you can be
apart from the rest of the house. A den or a garage can
be converted into office space that is exclusive to your
business. I have a friend whose office is the laundry
room, just because it has a door! When that is not an
option, set up shop in your bedroom. One side of the
room can be your office. You wonít be able to meet with
clients in your bedroom, but if the business is an
online venture, that is not a requirement anyway.
Organization is the next step. A messy desk is not a
sign of an uncluttered mind. Everything needs to have
its place. If you worked in an office, your boss would

the odds and ends on your desk. You can keep rubber

appointments and deadlines straight. You can coordinate
your business calendar with the family calendar so that
there are no conflicts. On the business calendar, cross
out the dates when you have family events planned.
you have to, hire a sitter on the days that you have the
most work to do in the office. As a work at home mom
you control your schedule. Having a sitter keeps the
kids away from your office (and, with a good sitter,
having fun). Someone else is caring for them so you
donít have to worry.
Mixing business with family in the home setting can be a
major source of stress. Keeping the business side of
your life organized and separate though inside your home
is crucial to success in both areas.
