The hustle culture needs to die.
Yep, I said it. People everywhere are hustling. Hustling for money, hustling for their business, hustling for their worth…it needs to stop. The day I watched my daughter take her first steps in a video my husband sent me was the day I knew I needed to stop hustling. I wanted to be with my daughter not watching her on a screen. I wanted to be a part of those memories, not watch them unfold while I hustled at work.
When I came home full time it was still a learning curve. It can be challenging to get out of the hustle habit when you’ve been living it for so long. I was working from home but had clients snapping their fingers and expecting the work to be done yesterday.
It’s totally possible to work from home and still be in full on hustle mode.
It’s essential to set boundaries with yourself and your clients so that you are not at their beck and call 24/7. This is exactly why I only work five to ten hours per week. When I’m working, my focus is 100% on work. When I’m with my family, my focus is 100% on them. Yes, I still talk about business and income stream ideas outside of those few work hours per week because it’s something I’m super passionate about. When it’s snuggle time, I am all in. I am not absentmindedly thinking about work stuff while my daughter tells me about her day. I’m listening intently and engaged because work isn’t everything.
Don’t forget why you’re doing this. We lose sight of a balanced work life when we lose sight of why we wanted to work from home in the first place. You can’t possibly get all the things done in a single week. You don’t want to wake up at the end of a few years with a booming business and a home life in shambles. That’s not how I roll and it’s not what I’ll teach you how to do.

Have the best day!
