What timing!

Maddie from the awesome Kiwi design blog Lil' Magoolie, has just shared this article via Facebook titled, "Avoiding the Mumpreneur Pitfalls."  What timing!  I've been thinking quite a lot about these issues lately, and as always, it's wonderful to know that I'm not alone.  In one way or another, these challenges must be universal to all mothers who run small businesses while raising a family.  This article really hit home -- particularly numbers 3 and 4 ("Squeezing Work into Naptime" and "Working on Everything at Once.")  While I really do think that having a separate physical space to do my work has helped me to focus on one aspect of life at a time, I am certainly guilty of trying to cram as much as I possibly can within the ever-changing framework of my children's sleep habits.  Oh, the agony of a napless day!

At any rate, it's a short article, but one that is well worth reading.  Also, the micro-business site on which it's featured (Flying Solo) is new to me, but one I'll be checking frequently from now on.

And just to keep things interesting, a photo:

Hope you all had lovely weekends....xx
