When you run your own business, you can’t just drop the ball when emergencies happen.
(If you’ve been trying to start a business but get completely off-track every time life occurs – you get a big tax bill, you’re down with the flu for a week, or a family member is ill – this may not be the life for you.)
Last year, my dad was in the hospital for 7 weeks, had two emergency surgeries and every complication in the books. I watched my mom, his wife and business partner, show up at the hospital every day – while she kept the business running.
She saw clients nearly every day, and told me it was actually a relief to think about something else for a while. If my dad had a surgery or a procedure, she would organize appointments around it.
As I’ve shared, I’m in a season right now where I can’t work as full-out as I’m accustomed. (T minus 7 weeks till baby girl Law arrives!)
This pregnancy, while healthy, has been more difficult for me than my first. I’m chasing a toddler around, and I’m running a business.
Here’s how I’ve kept my business thriving without sacrificing my health:

Have a beautiful weekend.
