WAHM and Time Management

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time management is probably the biggest struggle I have as a WAHM or a work-at-home-mom. I have the basic schedule that I follow but I want a more predictable schedule.

My work schedule pretty is much dependent on work of course. Unlike other 8-5 jobs, work in the work-at-home industry is very unpredictable. I work for 3 different companies in the same industry and some other side jobs that I only do on certain times of the year...plus the blogging of course. And all of these jobs I have are in demand jobs so the competition is stiff. When work is there, everyone is working. That means I have to work, work, work. My blogging is the last on my list as I only do it if I have nothing to do. Why? Well, it's because I don't look at it as a J-O-B.

I've been doing this for the last 5 years or so and I still struggle with this 'time management' thing. I have always been big on schedules so being in 'limbo' is not something I am crazy about. But I guess that's one of the 'downsides' of wanting to stay with our little one and personally raising her...and that can't be a bad thing, can it?

Juliana,

Lucky you kasi you are at home with your kid. I look forward na making full time mommy ako next year *hopefully*. At least naman kahit wahm ka you are generating income din.

About time management- naku, bad ako about that subject haha! I hope I can manage when that time comes but who knows diba?

Stay at home Mom is the toughest job in the world. I'm sick of my 8 hours work lol!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

xoxo!

Aren't we all?

The funny thing is when you are SAHM, you miss working and then the other way around.

I seriously need to work on my time management. :(

Elow! I actually look up to you for having such a great time management!

I am not even doing anything at home yet I am unable to do a lot of things like you can.

You're like super mom! ^_^

And no, staying with your little one. Because you are always with your child molding here personally I know that she will grow up exceptionally.
