Not sure who needs to hear this, but it’s okay to outsource things that you’re not good at or that stress you out. Even if those things are traditional “mum things”, like cooking, cleaning your house, and going grocery shopping.
I can’t tell you the last time I stepped foot in a grocery store. Truly. The walk from my car into the store and wandering around is the most inefficient use of my time — and truth be told, my kids eat better if I’m not in charge of it.
You can still be a good mum if you don’t cook or do laundry.
You can still a boss babe if you don’t do everything in your business.
After I started my business I quickly realized I desperately needed help at home if I was going to scale. I wasn’t sure if we could afford it and to be honest I was terrified that I wouldn’t be able to at first.
I took a leap and got our first VA which means If my kids are sick and I can't get into my emails, its okay. We've also had an amazing young women come through our home to help me make sure our kids are fed and get to where they need to be on time so the runaround can be taken off my plate. I am so grateful for them.
Realizing, and leaning into the fact, that I needed help both in my business and at home if I was going to scale my business was one of my first steps to growing. And my kids are better off for it, too.
