Good Morning! I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about when I do my writing. Specifically, “How do you have time to write and build your platform with little kids at home?” Well, I’d be happy to share my secrets with you.
From reading my ‘About’ page on my website, you know that I have always loved to write so finding the time is really about priorities. Sure, when I had my first baby, I was still figuring out how to function on a daily basis but three kids later – I’ve got this down pat.
I was reading a magazine one day while I was nursing my son and came across someone’s review of a book called, Writer Mama by Christina Katz. I went to my local library and checked it out. That book was the catalyst for teaching me how to continue writing (for profit) while raising my son. That book was so helpful that I decided to take classes with the author online. Fast-forward six years later and I am still working with her.
So, to answer your question, I find time to write by continuing to invest in my craft. The more I sharpen my skills as a writer – the more I want to write. The more I write – the more money I make. Simply put, you make time for what’s important.
As I begin this exciting journey of website building, manuscript writing and public speaking, I can’t help but get excited at the idea of reaching millions of women across the world and empowering them to be the best version of themselves.
This might look different for each woman. That’s okay. My writing coach told me that time is my friend and not my enemy. So what’s your dream? Are you pursuing it?
Invest in yourself and do what you love.
