6.) Office space. Explaining to a young child that you can't be disturbed during certain times is very difficult and will need repeating. If you have an office, close your door and put a sign on the door handle. You can get your child to help you make the sign so they really understand what it means. When setting up your home office, if you don't have a dedicated room, then find somewhere in your house that has the least amount of traffic and the fewest distractions.
7.) Get your kids involved. Explain what you do to your kids and why you do it. Find small tasks they can do to help you with your business. For instance, have your child punch holes in your papers and organize them in a binder for you. Set goals that your child can understand and get excited about. For instance, when you reach a certain goal, you will take them to Disneyland (for a really big goal) or to the park (for a smaller goal).
8.) Take a break. In order to avoid burnout, set aside work-free time. A well-timed breather can be extremely restorative and give you the energy boost you need. Taking care of yourself, including your mental and physical health, is one of the best things you can do for your business.
