Though my diaper days are over, I was thrilled to review "Balancing Diapers & Deadlines" from Lisa Tanner Writing.
Well, I'm glad you asked.
I started up a business when my youngest was in middle school and I wish I had gone through this course, first. You see, my children didn't understand what I was doing or why. I had a hard time and went years without accomplishing anything for my business.
As I finished up the first lesson, I said, "Why oh why didn't I do that?" Lisa shared three ways to get your family on board in the beginning: explain the changes that will take place, share the reasons why you are starting a business, and talk about your business. Instead, in my house, my children were resentful so I didn't put time into the business or ever talk about it with them. Big mistake!
Next, Lisa shared about creating flexible routines. Another "Wow! Why didn't I do it the way she suggests moment!" She even shares how to teach your children to be flexible. By this point in the course, I was so impressed!
Happily, Lisa covers things like dealing with interruptions, spending time with each child, keeping the house clean with a simple routine, managing the laundry monster, chores, and meal planning. I am amazed by how streamlined her meal planning and cooking is. You will love her system!
One thing I really appreciated about this course was how she went step-by-step through all the ages to show me how to work and take care of my kids. As the children got older, she showed me how to involve them.
Overall, I was so impressed by the course. More than that, I was blessed! I learned new things and got a lot of great ideas to try out in my home. Thanks, Lisa, for creating this course. If you are wanting to start a home business with little ones underfoot and need some instruction in time management for busy moms, I believe this course will be a blessing to you, too.
