Being a mum in business is a lot of things....
It’s joyful, it’s powerful, it’s flexible, it’s brilliant. But it also It’s takes determination & persistence to put yourself out there whilst sharing your passion with the world.
One thing being a mum in business isn’t is easy.
There is this constant push and pull between work and home, the kids and yourself.. and being honest the scales are never truly in balance.
People might say they’ve got it all sussed. But truth is the scales are always going to be tipped more slightly one way or another. And then it changes and tips slightly the other way. Constantly shifting one way to another.
One week it’s all about school productions and costumes so you have to work around that. And the next week it’s all into work until the school plan another event or you have a poorly child then the next half term.
We work weekends, late nights and early mornings. But it gets done. Sometimes it’s delayed or plans change but it always gets done. It’s a constant juggle and one I’m not afraid to admit can sometimes chew me up and spit me out.
Sometimes we crawl into bed and find ourselves scheduling social media posts at midnight. Other times we fall asleep on our children's bed mid bedtime story. There are days when we connect with others and shine our light and days when it feels like we don't have any light left in us.
So for those mum's in business out there I Salute you, I’ve been there in floods of tears wondering how I’m going to get it all done. And I’ve had those successful weeks where I am queen of the world. And all the grey unknown in between.
But we keep going. We keep moving through it, we build and we dream and the scales keep on tipping.
Would be have it any other way?
Would be f***.
