Do you ever feel like your goals or dreams are bigger than you have time for?
Sometimes I wish I would have started this blog when I didn’t have kids. To really pour my time into building a brand with strong marketing so that when I had kids I wouldn’t still be striving.
I started my blog when Cason was 9 months and I was at home with him. I feel like everything has started slow and I barely have enough time in the day to make a recipe, photograph it and then write about it. More less taking time to do market research and then do analytics on marketing strategies and such. I have so many things I’d love to change or start doing but I don’t have the time.
I definitely don’t want to be “working” when my kids are awake or at home with me. That kinda contradicts the whole, being at home to be with my kids idea. I want to be present with them and not on my computer or phone the whole time. Striving.
The biggest challenge or battle in my mind as of late is social media.
I know I need to do it. I want to do it. I love watching other peoples instagram stories or reading facebook posts. I just have to find a balance with it. Lately for me it’s all or nothing. I post a ton on one day and then nothing for like 3 days. I need to find what works for me, that fits seamlessly into my daily life and doesn’t consume my thoughts or day because I’m editing a photo for instagram.
Can any one else relate? Or is it just me?
Ok, moving on. Just some thoughts I’ve had as of late with the whole mom vs. entrepreneur life. #thestruggleisreal
