I have been a work at home mom since the birth of my son over five years ago. It has definitely been a learning experience (and I am still learning.) This past year, I gave birth to a different kind of “baby” with Gugu Guru — an entrepreneurial endeavor. Starting a tech company with now a three year old daughter and my five year old son has been an experience filled with the mixed emotions of boosted confidence, sleepless nights, feelings of guilt, thrilling highs and so much more.
With 2015 wrapping up, I took December to reset a little and think about what I can do in the new year to help me be a better business woman, a better wife and most importantly a better mom. I’ve come up with three general resolutions that are comprised of mini resolutions:
1. Be a better me by taking care of myself. (Yes, this is #1. I have put off too many doctor appointments this year, let the pounds creep on, and generally neglected my health.)
2. Be a better mom. (Set defined work hours. Stop feeling guilty.)
3. Be a better wife. (Schedule a date night with my husband each month.)
I’ll be sharing my resolution journey this month in three separate posts, along with some other general tips that hopefully can help some working mamas out there. Thanks so much for reading and Happy 2016!
