Ask Sarah: How Do You Balance Everything? | Episode 66Apr 20, 2022
“How do you balance everything?”
I’m kicking off a new six-part series on the podcast called, “Ask Sarah.” Each week, I’ll be answering a question from inside my Launch Your Box coaching membership.
This week’s question came from Mar. And when Mar told me all about her subscription box business and the many different roles she plays in her life, I understood exactly where the question came from.
Mar and her family run Windborne Farm where they raise bees, along with other animals and crops. Mar’s love for the bees turned into a side business when she discovered a passion for beeswax candles. And that passion grew further into a subscription box, the Bee Still Box.
In addition to being a business owner, Mar is a beekeeper, farmer, partner, and homeschooling mom of young children. Her question to me was, “How do you balance everything?”
The short answer - I don’t. None of us can. The idea that it’s possible for anyone, especially a woman, to keep the various parts of her life in balance is kind of ridiculous. But… there are things I’ve learned during my nine years as a business owner and five years as a subscription box owner that help me keep my life in better balance. Those are the things I shared with Mar - and with you.
When it comes to the actual logistics of juggling the kid stuff and the house stuff and the business stuff and the self stuff, I learned that I need systems and I need help. Some of my strategies included:
- Hiring help - and recognizing it’s okay.
- Asking my family members for help and delegating some tasks.
- Scheduling time with friends and family.
- Taking breaks when I need them.
- Creating structure in my days, weeks, and months.
- Removing distractions.
Join me for this episode as Mar shares her fascinating subscription box journey and we talk mom to mom and business owner to business owner about finding balance and juggling all the things.
