    Absolutely loved this Jane – thank you.

    I 100% agree with the ‘getting rid of guilt’ part. I have only just got a handle on this and my happiness AND positivity has boosted through the roof!

    • Jane Copeland

      Glad you agree Emily. It makes a huge difference doesn’t it!

  • Thanks Jane, these tips are really helpful!

      Thanks Masa and thanks for your feedback xx

  • Kristy Goodwin

    I love these tips- especially working in short, sharp bursts. With two kids in tow, I’ve found that I can get lots done in short chunks. Prioritising also means that I know what has to get done first in those short work sessions. Thanks for the reminder.

    • Jane Copeland

      Kristy, ah yes with two little ones the days of long periods of uninterrupted time would be long gone! I need to get some tips off you because you’re obviously doing something right with the amazing projects you’re working on.

  • Love these tips Jane, I found myself nodding along. I need to keep mastering working in short bursts + being super focused on what I need to work on first that will make the biggest impact + the sweet reward is precious time with my toddler.

    I know being a WAH mom can be hard, but our reward, being home with our kids are priceless and worth testing out different things in your schedule to find just the right fit for you.

    • Jane Copeland

      Hi Nicholette, exactly right.. we mustn’t forget why we are doing this. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Linda – Mums on the Go

    great video Jane – can very much relate to working in short sharp bursts. I find the ticking of the clock with a sleeping baby makes me work at turbo speed. She might only sleep for 30 minutes or it could be 2 hours … don’t want to waste a minute of it! As a Mum of 3 young children I have also found the need to be more embracing of flexibility – some days I achieve more than I expected, other days much less. I used to get quite stressed on the days where things didnt flow smoothly but now I practice a greater sense of acceptance. It is just the way it rolls blending motherhood and business.

    • Jane Copeland

      Linda, so true the same thing used to happen to me – I used to get stressed when things didn’t go as planned. I still feel like I’m grabbing bits of time here and there which isn’t ideal but I’ve learnt to go with it.

  • Love this video! The short bursts is a must, I love what Linda from Mums on the Go mentioned too… the ticking nap clock makes for turbo speed week for sure. And you’re so right about prioritizing your goals. Because when that short window of opportunity arrives you’ll want to have a clear action plan on how you’ll use that time, rather then feeling scattered. Great tips! Love your site!!
