Seek Help When You Need It, Boss Mom.



Mama, when running your own business, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you need to do everything yourself. I am totally guilty of that myself. After all, you're the one who started the business, and you're the one who knows it best, right? While it's true that you have a unique understanding of your business and its needs, it's also important to recognize when you need help and seek it out. Especially if you intend to make more time for your child(ren).


Here are some reasons why seeking help when needed is crucial for the success of your business and your overall ability to balance everything:


You can't do everything yourself

No matter how skilled and experienced you are, there are limits to what you can accomplish alone. Running a business involves a wide range of tasks, from marketing and sales to finance and operations. That's not including all of the mom-duties you have day-to-day as well. Trying to do everything yourself can lead to burnout, stress, and ultimately, poor performance. By seeking help from others, you can delegate tasks and free up your time to focus on the things that matter most.


You can benefit from others' expertise

One of the great things about running a business is that you don't have to be an expert in every area. By seeking help from others, you can tap into their specialized knowledge and experience. For example, if you're not a financial expert, you can hire an accountant to help you manage your finances. If you're not a marketing expert, you can hire a marketing consultant to help you develop a strategy. By working with others who have different skills and perspectives, you can gain valuable insights and make better decisions.


You can build a strong network

Seeking help from others can also help you build a strong network of contacts and supporters. By working with others, you can build relationships and establish trust. This can lead to new opportunities, referrals, and collaborations. Plus, having a network of people to turn to for advice and support can be invaluable when facing challenges or making important decisions.


You can save time and money

While it may seem counterintuitive, seeking help when needed can actually save you time and money in the long run. By delegating tasks to others, you can avoid costly mistakes and free up your time to focus on growing your business. Additionally, working with experts can help you avoid costly trial-and-error mistakes and make better decisions.


You can improve your chances of success

Ultimately, seeking help when needed can improve your chances of success. Running a business is a complex and challenging endeavor, and no one can do it alone. By working with others and building a strong network, you can gain the support, expertise, and resources you need to succeed.


Those are perhaps the most obvious points when it comes to the importance of seeking help for your business. But there's also another form of help that needs to come into play when you are a mother running a business. I have talked about it before in a couple of previous blogs. It is that of enlisting help from friends and family when needed to help balance work and mom-duties.


In conclusion, seeking help when needed is crucial for the success of your business. Whether you need help with finances, marketing, operations, or any other area, there are people out there who can help you. By working with others and building a strong network, you can tap into their expertise, save time and money, and improve your chances of success. So don't be afraid to ask for help – it may be the best decision you ever make for your business.
