Time is the most valuable asset being an entrepreneur

MOMPRENEUR, PERSONALSamantha Gordon3 Comments

Now that I’m in the groove(yet, still constantly learning)of being a full time mommy and entrepreneur, I’ve realized that time is my most valuable asset. I always keep this in the back of my mind—whatever I do for the next 2-3 years will affect the next 5-10. This is why I respect my time. Respecting and valuing your time will help you to work more efficiently. You will then gain more experience and knowledge, which leads to expanding your ideas, business and brand. Value what you give your time and energy to. You will be more fulfilled, especially with the decisions and choices you make. You are in total control, always. 

Here’s how I’m keeping it all together, business included. 

Time management 

Realizing the importance of your time allows you to accomplish more of your goals. More than likely, even in a shorter period of time. Finishing tasks often bring you satisfaction and a boost of energy that makes you feel great. You’ll want more of that feeling, so it’s a win-win.

Where do you direct your attention?

Quick tip: anyone or anything that serves you no good, no purpose and/or no peace—completely cut it out of your life. Why put your time and energy into it? I’ve cut out a lot of unnecessary stress and disappointment by doing so. 

Continue to move forward 

Learn to maximize your time. Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy. If it was, everybody would be doing it. You’ve got to learn to pick yourself up. Don’t stop, even when you feel like there’s no progress(this is usually when things are about to shift in your favor). Learn discipline. Don’t be afraid to make important decisions for your brand and business. 

Stop complaining 

If you notice something wrong within your life/business, fix it! Complaining does nothing but drain you, distract you and block your blessings. The time you waste complaining, you could be using it to solve your problem, creating something, learning, etc. Don’t waste it.  

Everyday love

PERSONAL, RAISING LITTLESSamantha Gordon2 Comments

During this mornings journaling, I reflected on yesterday’s festivities (I hope your Mother’s Day was nothing short of amazing) and thought about the bond my children and I share. The love is just unmatched. I believe our bond grows stronger each day because every moment I get to love on my children, I take it. As do they. The most important thing I can and will give to my little loves, is unconditional love. 

In my opinion, these are the five things you should absolutely be doing with your little love every single day. 

Pray with them 

Teach them to pray, talk and listen to God. Read child’s bible stories to them. 

Be present

Fully, be focused on them. Your attention and thoughts also. When together turn off the world and technology. Listen to your little love without interrupting them and outside interruptions. 

Show physical attention

My little loves are probably SO over me. I’m a very affectionate mommy. I give big hugs, kisses, I’m always smiling, etc. 

Use loving words

Words are powerful. Give them compliments/compliment on things they do well, tell them you love them, make sure you follow through on the promises you make, etc. 

Laugh with them 

Find humor in activities you do together. Be silly and create fun/silly games.
