I’m getting ready to leave my house, husband, three kids, dog and 2 nannies (Grammy and Ebony) to go to Chicago from Tuesday to Sunday for work and my cousin’s wedding. Normally I would be stressing out right now, but instead, I’m sitting here, sipping my coffee at 6:20am, writing this blog post and thinking about the presentation I’m giving to a group of female angel investors tomorrow morning. I’ve already planned the meals for the week, did the grocery shopping, made the lunches. I did most the laundry, just need to sort and fold some, then pack for my trip.
If I were leaving on this same trip this time last year, I would have been much more stressed. What’s changed between then and now? I designed the run your home like a business plan and implemented it in my house. This way, there is no confusion about what needs to get done on a weekly, daily, and even hourly basis within the house and with the children. Want to alleviate mental burden?
