Many had asked how do I manage my time between being a full time mummy, without maid, and a full time business woman. Well, truthfully, I am no SuperMummy.. However, being a great multi-tasker and a go-getter helps because you tend to do whatever it takes to make it work.
So what is a typical day of a Mumpreneur like?
I am not too sure about others, my day would start with battling with my two boys to get them to school on time. Sleeping with bvsm makes them enjoy their sleep more and do not want to wake up *lols*. So once they are bathed, clothed and fed, off they go to their playschool, The Treehouse Islamic Playschool in Kota Damansara.
Do not be fooled by their sweet smiles… *lols*
Next, if I don’t have a 10 a.m. appointment, I would try to settle the postings for orders collected from the previous day. I am so thankful that I stay within close vicinity of all the courier service provider: Poslaju, FedEx and others I can either send them to MailBox Etc in Giant Kota Damansara, or Ikebana.com near Petronas KFC Kota Damansara.

I usually spend my morning either to personal coach my proteges that are also full time moms. Their mornings are usually not packed as most have schooling kids. So, we would usually have breakfast date and coaching session. Most of the time, my coaching sessions would either cover goal setting or one-on-one tuition on product or business matters. Sometimes we also cover the technical topics such as blogging and social media, as these are the heart of our business and I want all my proteges to master them well.

My lunchtime would usually be filled with appointments, either Premium Beautiful fitting appointments or business sharing appointments. There are many ladies out there looking to find part-time business to supplement their current income or trying to find a way out from their current job to be able to gain time freedom. Hence, most of the time, I would be go into the city to meet with these ladies to share the Premium Beautiful business opportunity with them. Who would not want to earn a solid 4-5 figure income by just putting in a minimum of 2 hours a day effort? The more you do, the more you will get. I am the living proof that it can be done!

After lunch, I would usually have an hour to spare before I have to go pick up my boys. This would be the time for me to go to the stockist to either register a new partner or restock on the hot selling products.
By 3 p.m I would have to go pick-up my boys and would spend time with them. We would either go do some groceries, go to the park or just relax at home, watching TV or them playing with their LEGOs. This is the time when I would prepare dinner and make sure kids are bathed and fed and ready for bed.
Once my husband is back from work, he would take over to look after the kids while I either go out. I try to limit going out at night. However, some clients prefer to meet at night as they would be more relax and not rushed to make any decisions. Also, sometimes my mentors are only available to meet at night. Hence, I would usually have my coaching session with my mentor at night.

However my Wednesday and Friday night are already blocked for my business class. We have two separate classes:
1) Dolomite centre where we are thought the knowledge of network building from all the CDM otai that had been in the business for over 10 years.
2) TLC Centre where we are being trained by TLC Master Trainers on how to stay ahead in this dynamic business.

As part of our training programme, TLC Leaders are selected to conduct the class according to rotation and topics. Hence, at times, as TLC Master Trainer, I would get the chance to become one of the speakers on Friday nights.
Well that is my typical daily routine. However, in between all the activities, I still have time to shop, and do lots of other things that I don’t get to do when I was still working as a Chartered Accountant. I truly am grateful to my leader that had introduced me to this business. Should I still be working in the corporate world, I might not have the chance to send and pick my kids up from school, let alone spend quality time with them every single day. They are the reason why I left my job. They are the reason why I am doing what I am doing now.
Being able to manage your daily schedule is critical to ensure that you will get the most effective result = INCOME BESAR! Imagine spending just few hours a day and earn income as high as a CEO’s income…. Unimaginable but very possible.
