Surviving No School While Working from Home

Let’s start out with explaining that I need to be home where it’s quiet to work. I am without a noiseproof workspace. An office with a door would be wonderful, but that’s not how our home is set up at this stage. When school is out, and my schedule is thrown to the wind, it becomes difficult to remain productive. There is noise and constant, “Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma.” interruptions. We’re also on the move quite a bit. Break is a great time for friends coming over, and planning day trips. It’s not so good for working.

This is the biggest challenge (with lack of motivation being a close second) that I deal with in running my own business. I honestly forget that I just cannot do it all.

Creating is far too important.
