This is what "Out Of Office" looks like when you have your own business. My kid snapped this photo of me today, sitting in my boot, fulfilling orders and trying to get work done.
Because there's no putting on your "Out Of Office" when you run your own business. It's 24/7. So you just grab the time to work when you can. For me in this photo, it was while the kids were playing around on bikes. I'm in the boot packing up orders, keeping half an eye, and refereeing fights when they get really messy.
It can be really frustrating. You can feel that you never get to give your business your best shot. But I’m not complaining - I'm actually pretty grateful. I get to be around my kids, and build something I'm passionate about. That doesn't leave time for much else, but the rest will just have to wait.
But also - I'm so grateful to all the people who go out of their way to support small businesses. Be it buying our products, leaving lovely reviews, taking the time to send nice feedback, recommending us to their friends. It is so much appreciated. And it just shows the power of #womensupportingwomen
So thank you Mamas. You rock. And every comment I hear from you about how Hands On has made your day easier, or kept your child safe, makes all the hanging out in my boot worthwhile.
Also not forgetting the super supportive Insta / business Mamas who raise each other up every day...while slogging it out from their own boot, or playroom floor or whatever it takes at different times of the year. This is only a tiny selection tagged...of all the awesome gals out there...there’s 10 times as many as Insta lets you tag!
