Using Clockwork as a Mompreneur to Run Your Business with Mike Michalowicz

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 145

Are you trying to balance work-life and home-life? Is it working? Are you feeling overwhelmed with running your business, as a parent? Studies have shown that there is a difference between how men run their businesses and how women run their businesses.

➡️ Men will typically sacrifice family time to work on the business
➡️ Women typically sacrifice their health to work on their business

Yikes! … with these studies’ results … it’s proof that we need to be intentional about how we manage our time as business owners and parents. And dare we say balance!

In today’s episode, we are going over how to make working on your business a more desirable feeling and less “chain-to-it!” feeling ⛓️.

A few keys to successfully run your mompreneur business is:

➡️ create a schedule
➡️ create boundaries
➡️ create your vision
➡️ define who you are serving in your business

Starting and running a business doesn’t require blood sweat and tears … but a few key things that our guest today, Mike Michalowicz, will dive into more detail. And random celebration fact is that today in ep 145 — Mike is our FIRST male guest! Whoo-hoo (thanks Mike!)
