“You know the poops going to hit the fan sooner or later,” that’s what I hear from talking with women who own their own business AND take care of an aging parent.
Which is why in this situation it is so helpful to learn from other’s perspectives and to feel like you aren’t alone.
“That constant tug.”
“It’s just there.”
It’s important to talk about these feelings because what’s happening when you are worried about the shit hitting the fan is you lose focus.
It happened to Valerie who runs her own bookkeeping business. She found that when she was at work, she worried about her mom. When she was with her mom, she was worried about work.
As a result, her time at work was fractured and because it was fractured, she wasn’t enrolling new clients.
When she was able to share her fears and worry with a community of women just like her – business owners, caring for an aging parent, that’s when she was able to focus on her work which meant enrolling new clients to keep her business profitable. Not to mention that now when she’s with her mom, she’s totally focused on her – and enjoys the time they spend together.
Can you relate?
Join me on Friday, March 31st at 2 cst/12 pst as we gather as a community of women business owners who are caring for an aging parent.
We will be talking about what to do when the shit hits the fan. Hint: turn the fan off (we’ll be talking about that – turning the fan off.)😉
And since we are all business owners, expect some networking – that always happens in these gatherings too.
