Episode 107: First Time Mompreneur: How I'm Prepping
Welcome back to another episode of The Legal Paige Podcast. Today we are in full on baby prep mode! This is a conversation that I've been having a little bit online and of course, seeing from other mompreneurs as well. But I think it's important to keep sharing about this.
Things we talk about:
- How I am planning and preparing not just in my business but my personal life as well for baby's arrival.
- Why my family's maternity leave is going to look a little different then others you see online.
- What I have delegated out to my team, and how they have prepared as well.
- Why I think it's so important to have this conversation and share it with other moms to be.
Here are a few quotes:
"There's so many things I love to do, and I just know it's going to change now because it's not just Marco and I. There's a kid involved, and I have to dedicate my whole life, you know to this kid as well. I still love running businesses and I'm never gonna stop doing that. So I have my spouse's support on the fact that I do have to split my time between my business and my family life."
"One of the things I'm also doing is setting up like really good boundaries and guidelines for childcare. And I'm at home. I work from home. I'm literally in an office in my house. Right, I realized that I may have to do different things. When the kid comes, I may have to leave my house to go and work at a coffee shop. I may have to go over to a friend's house that doesn't have kids and record podcasts. I may have to take calls outside versus like in my office."
"My biggest advice is like push through those fears and try to set yourself up for success in the best way possible, you know, like prep for everything in advance so that you're not stressed out. Have a plan in place for who's taking over what in your business, so you can try to mentally detach and know that things are taken care of, Have trustworthy people in your business that can help you set up a support system as well for childcare."
