I don’t know about you, but as a self-employed business owner and parent, I do enjoy the change of pace that the School holidays seem to bring; a step away from the everyday routine is nice to do, and usually welcomed by the time it comes around! In fact, a previous coach of mine, who doesn’t have kids works in flow with the school terms anyway, and I don’t recall it being just because most of her clients are parents either.
As I write this post here in the UK, we’re approaching the longest holidays of the School year; anywhere between six and nine weeks depending on the School. If you’re a solopreneur and you have school age children, that can feel pretty tough to get your head around. On the one hand, it’s lovely to go on days out, take a more carefree approach to routines, and enjoy the company of family and friends, maybe even a holiday somewhere, but on the other hand there’s that worry of “but what about my business?” and “how am I ever going to have a successful business when I’m not working all Summer?”
If this has been on your mind and it’s been stressing you out, the ‘how’ of it all, then you’re certainly not alone in this. Millions of self-employed parents up and down the country will be having the same conversations both inside their head as well as with others around them around how this juggling lark is supposed to happen.
This video talks about just that. Firstly, it won’t be perfect. Life (or business) does not resume as normal, but I also talk about how it doesn’t have to be so ‘all or nothing’ either. Inspired by a post written by Amanda Johnson recently of www.vact.co.uk, you’ll hear about how actually the holidays can present a really interesting opportunity for relationships to develop in a way you may not have considered before.
