The summer months of July and August make us think of long sunny days, BBQs in the garden and trips to the beach – as well as soggy rained on picnics of course. Some of us look forward to them all year but for many working parents of school age children July & August pose the challenges of juggling work with the school holidays.
Some parents manage to take some time off work to spend with the children but for many others it is a balance of help from relatives, friends and holiday camps. If you are self-employed or work from home the challenge can be even greater.
How can you ensure that your business doesn’t suffer whilst you get to spend quality time with your children?
Making things work for everybody can be difficult and can depend on your business. Some clients might not mind the noise of kids in the background whilst you are on the phone, but for others that require your presence at meetings or in an office things can be trickier.
There is of course help at hand. Scheduling tools like Hootsuite can help you manage your social media accounts whilst you are away. Telephone answering or emails can be outsourced to ensure a seamless service for your clients whilst giving you the break you deserve.
