Introducing my toddler. Spirited, talkative, and everything in between. The video was taken when I was doing a task at my phone, and he came along to look, so I switched to selfie video mode.
You can imagine the situation of me typing on the phone, with him around. I can barely write a sentence.
So how did I manage to update my personal and travel blogs? And how did I manage social media for my clients? How was I able to accommodate attending podcast interviews with different time zone from the host?
1. It’s all about the mindset
I have a 9 to 5 job (in my case, it can even go from 8 to 8). I have a one-year-old toddler seeking my fullest attention when I got home. I have a husband to talk about the day with.
And guess what? Sometimes my toddler sleeps at 12am. And I have to wake up at 6am everyday.
Tired? Definitely! Give up? No!
2. Invest in a good smart phone
This is a must-have for all the entrepreneur mothers!
At this point of time, I am writing this article at 02:07am, with my toddler twist and turn from my left arm to my stomach, to my neck.
Yes, that’s how I work everyday.
3. Download the right apps
Slack enables me to communicate with other freelance writers to exchange problems or ideas.
Pages Manager helps me to manage my pages at ease.
TripIt helps me to organise my trip planning for travel writing.
The right apps will save your life!
4. Connect With Other Bloggers and Social Media Managers
Blogging and managing social media can be a lonely and tiring journey. Joining various social media groups will definitely boost your spirit!
One of my personal favourite is Social Media United. Such a fun group to learn and have discussions!
5. Rest well, and set tomorrow’s target
Rest is important, people. Once you achieved your target, set tomorrow’s goal. Then, have a good rest!
You will feel energized by morning, knowing what you want to achieve for the day.
