What is a System and How Does It Improve Work Life Balance

Being a mum can get really messy…

but when you throw in running an online business from home, and have 27 million plates juggling in the air (really only a slight exaggeration…:) ), and then it can all get messy and overwhelming.

I’ve talked about this before, but early on in the start of my business, I was doing things willy nilly, with no system, checklists, or structure to my actions, and a haphazard totally unmethodical way of storing or saving information – and we all know there is a lot of it!

In reality, I actually took a step back from my business last year, and only released 2 online courses and didn’t do much one on one coaching, because I was trying to work out how to pull it all together in my head.  It was a mess, and I couldn’t find the structure or systems I needed to make it work for me.

I have done a huge amount of research, and trial and error in this, as a way of improving my own productivity in my business, but also because these are important aspects of work life balance for my clients.  I really needed to get my head around it.

(I have now, in case you were wondering, and I’m so in love with the systems I have built to support me, that I’m going to share them with you – stay tuned!)

So today’s episode of Balance and Business for Online Mums is all about Systems.
What is a system, and why are they so important in our life – how to they really translate into better work life balance?

Which process can you document today, to ease your stress.  Maybe it’s the dinner/bed time process, for your partner, when you are at the gym, or maybe it’s planning, writing and promoting a blog post…

Tell me which one would help you feel more in control if it became a checklist?
