We are extremely busy.
Finding a balance between being a (good enough) mom and a professional is never easy. I have done so for a long time and it has (thankfully) worked out well.
Now I have a little boy who needs some extra attention when it comes to his homework and as a mom I have to make a plan to do so. I have decided that leaving at about 3pm will work for us.
Some clients don’t understand especially when they want a late afternoon appointment. However, this morning I had a client in my office who is an engineer
and earns more than I ever will. I was talking to another client on the phone who wanted a late appointment and I told this client why I don’t see clients in the afternoon. (Normally I don’t though)
My client in the office actually got tears in his eyes and said that money can’t buy what I am doing for my son(s).
It felt good to know that he understood and actually appreciated what I did.
I am very lucky to be able to do this. I am very lucky that I get to be an almost-full-time Mom.
