Work smarter, not harder

How time management is directly related to success

If you are a small business owner, you probably wear many hats. In my position I am the lead marketer, sales rep, HR contact, QuickBooks bondwoman and more. In short, if it needs to get done, I make it happen. On the other hand, as a working mother, my time with my child is also priceless. I treasure our evenings together and try my very best not to bring work home and if work comes home, it gets done after my child's bedtime. Therefore, making efficient use of my time is a major priority every day of my life.

Is this worth five minutes?

Any parent knows what happens to a house after you have kids. It's like a bomb of shiny, brightly colored plastic and plush went off everywhere. But add in a messed up sleep schedule, added responsibility and chores, and suddenly there is a backlog of things that tired parents just don't want to do.

And really, for that first six months to a year, don't worry about it too much. This column isn't for you. You will have dishes that don't get done, and laundry that never gets folded, and that is OK. Have a long-distance hug from a sympathetic stranger.
