Managing a Business with a Baby

Running a business is hard. Bringing a baby into the mix can really throw your business for a loop. However, it is possible to have a family and a successful business!

Here are some tips to running a business with a baby.

  • Work when the baby is sleeping. Babies sleep a lot so utilise their nap-times and bedtime. There are some things that you can do while a baby is awake but there are many tasks that need your full attention. These can be done during naps and when your baby goes to bed.
  • Have systems in place prior to the birth of your baby. Systems help to automate your business, making it easier. If you already know what you have to do when you get a client, you won’t have to think about the process as much. This will help when you are sleep deprived or spending time with your family.
  • Get help. Don’t be afraid to get help, especially during the early times. Others can help you do almost anything in your business so you can focus on your family and the parts of the business that you can manage.

It can be hard to run a business with a baby, but it is possible. Remember to work when the baby is sleeping. It is often helpful to have systems ready so you know what you have to do, even if you are sleep deprived and exhausted. Don’t be afraid to get help – whether you get help with your business or the baby, every little bit helps!
