5 Tips For Working From Home With A Toddler

If you work from home and have children at home you know how hard it can be to juggle both your work and your home life. It is often made doubly hard by the age of your children, and their individual needs. Here are 5 Tips For Working From Home With A Toddler that are sure to help you stay on top of your game, and give your kids the quality time that they need.

5 Tips For Working From Home With A Toddler

5 TIPS FOR WORKING FROM HOME WITH A TODDLER

Turn Off The Noise. Help yourself focus better by turning off the music, tv and sounds around you. Focus on your work instead to get projects and tasks done in a more timely manner.

Create A Realistic Schedule. While you would love to have a typical 9-5 work day, when you are juggling both a work at home job and a child that typically isn’t going to happen. Become realistic about their needs as well as your own and set your office hours to reflect that. If you have to have extended evening “work” time to make up for early morning naps, play time, and snack time, then work toward that. Don’t set yourself up for failure by limiting yourself to a standard schedule.

Include Them In Your Office. Even though many work from home jobs don’t allow for small children to “help” with the work, there are ways you can incorporate them into your daily office routine. Create a kid corner in your home office with their own “work” to do. Puzzles, toys, a children’s laptop or tablet are all great ideas. Chalkboards, dry erase boards and felt boards are all great items to have to occupy their time.

Work Smarter Not Harder. This one is often a tough one for all of us to grasp, but it is especially important in issues when you are trying to juggle work and home life. Figure out what work practices are the most profitable for you and make it your goal to focus on them.

Hire A Babysitter. While it may not be affordable for everyone, hiring a babysitter to help you out at least one day per week will give you the freedom you need to get projects done without interruptions. Check with local teens during summer months for inexpensive help, or look into local church “moms day out” programs that give you a few hours to one day a week of child care with ease.

Working from home is becoming a more and more popular way to make a living for men and women alike. Whether you are working for someone else as a virtual assistant or running your own home business, it can be tough with kids underfoot. These 5 tips for working from home with a toddler can help you stay focused, be productive and conquer your to do list.

Finder, a new influencer search engine

Many of you read my experience with brands week after week. It provides you an advance look at what to expect before hitting the fateful buy button. What you don’t see it what goes on behind the scenes. The qualities and standards that I proudly keep my blog up to in order to continue working with clients. In fact, the vast blogosphere offers millions of online influencers to select from.

With the upmost respect, I will say that brands and those that do their marketing have an intense job as well. Though what if you could narrow those results with a simple system. One that takes multiple social media types and provides a list of possible matches based on the key points you enter in? That is exactly what Finder helps provide, selection based on your brands needs.

finder

What exactly is Finder?

Finder is an influencer search engine able to find potential brand ambassadors among 2 billion online social users.

Even more so, as founder and partner of MPM. I often look for bloggers and social media influencers that best match my clients current campaigns. Take a recent project for cloth diapers sold by an Etsy seller.

Cloth diaper Finder search

I was able to search Finder for influencers by adding my search term: “cloth diapers”, known influencers on the topic: “@CDiaperTrader, @chgdiapers” and language: English. To provide me the top five accounts that match my specifics.

Cloth Diaper Influencer Results

While as you can see, three of the top 5 are popular cloth diapers shops and the other two are good possible influencers to pitch for my upcoming campaign. Simple and efficient is always popular in many lines of work including marketing.

So what are you waiting for? Try Finder for your next influencer campaign search.
