Show notes

You CAN work from home:

  • It takes planning right now

  • Rotate toys/activities

  • Make a loose schedule, but take a tip from a special needs mom and Elsa from Frozen and ....let it go!

  • Embrace imperfection. Privacy won't be perfect right now. Your clients will understand. You're human.

  • Still provide the frame and structure for your clients: don't get lost in the muck

  • Basic office setup so you at least look & feel your best

  • Time blocking for work, chores, family time, etc.


  • This is the last time in your kid's lives you'll have this much uninterrupted time with them

  • Manage your $$ anxiety as much as possible in front of kiddos
