I remember when I was working in my corporate job having to take a personal day here and there to take care of “life stuff”. It was no big deal. I alerted my manager, made out my list of to-do’s and off I went. Mission accomplished.

Fast forward to mompreneurship. I still have the same, if not more, life stuff. I still have my list of to-do’s. I even alerted myself that I need to take a day off to complete these tasks by marking them on my calendar. Yet they either remain undone or, worse, I spend the day feeling guilty that I’m not “at work”.
