Ahh, summer’s here. The cold cocktails on the back porch, the morning pool time, the gardening. All of these temptations that you can’t wait to get to. If only your kids would leave you alone to get some work done for your clients first.
Lisa Rollins is a virtual assistant and a mom who has found a way to still stay productive when her kids are home on their summer break. Here are Lisa’s tips!
Ah, summer … I have been waiting all spring for the long days and warm sunshine. I ease my way out of bed, happy to see the sun streaming through my windows. It should be a great day to work and really get some things checked off my list, complete my virtual meeting with my new client, and get my billing done for the month … and maybe even eat lunch outside.
Then I remember: today is the first day of my kids’ summer break.
They will be home with me ALL. DAY. LONG.
I love my children, but how am I possibly going to get any work done with them around?
How am I going to manage without spending thousands on childcare?
How am I going to manage to work and be a good parent at the same time?
Can you relate? Here are five solutions that I have used to get work done and not neglect my kids or have them vegged out on technology all day long.
