thriving vs surviving as a mompreneur

Streamline Your Business for Success and Harmony


On my journey towards success and harmony, I realized the importance of integrating operations and changing my mindset. I discovered that incorporating streamlined operations and dashboards into the backend of my business was a game-changer, as it allowed me to closely monitor and enhance the overall health of my business and better communicate with my clients and ongoing tasks or projects.

But it wasn't just about the numbers or organization. It was about creating a thriving work environment that maximized productivity. I have implemented themed work days using a 5 day work week schedule, allowing me to dive deep into different aspects of my business and allocate dedicated time for specific tasks. This new structure enhanced my productivity and allowed me to find a better work-life integration. By creating focused workdays, I could accomplish more during my work times, leaving me with quality time to spend with loved ones and pursue personal passions. This has been refined and implemented across all of my coaching programs as part of the Mompreneur Harmonious Method Framework!


Hi there! I’m Miriam, a Mompreneur's Business Strategist, dedicated to helping mompreneurs like you streamline their businesses. My goal is to enable you to focus on what you’re most passionate about, grow and scale without added stress, and find that elusive balance between business and family. With over 15 years of experience in marketing, branding, and business operations, I've worked with clients from the US, UK, Canada, and Germany across 25+ industries. But, my journey wasn’t just about professional accomplishments. I did it all while being a busy sports mom of two, managing five rare brain conditions, and expanding my own business.


I'm thrilled you've found this community! Let’s dive into actionable steps that can help you on your journey towards success and harmony.


Step 1: Integrate Streamlined Operations


Why Streamlining Matters


Streamlining your operations is crucial for maintaining the overall health of your business. It allows you to monitor performance closely and communicate more effectively with your clients about ongoing tasks or projects. Here’s how to get started:


Actionable Steps:


1. Identify Key Processes: List all your business processes. Identify which ones can be automated or simplified.

2. Choose the Right Tools: Use project management tools like Asana, Trello, or Monday.com to keep track of tasks and deadlines.

3. Create Dashboards: Implement dashboards that provide a real-time overview of your business performance.

4. Regular Audits: Conduct regular audits of your processes to ensure they remain efficient and make adjustments as needed.


Step 2: Implement Themed Work Days


The Power of Focused Work


Themed workdays are a game-changer. By dedicating specific days to particular aspects of your business, you can dive deep into each area, enhancing productivity and reducing the mental load of constantly switching tasks.


Actionable Steps:


1. Plan Your Week: Design a 5-day workweek schedule where each day is dedicated to a different aspect of your business that focuses on all areas of a healthy business, and it's not just social media!

2. Stick to the Schedule: Consistency is key. Make sure to adhere to your themed days as closely as possible.

3. Evaluate and Adjust: After a month, evaluate what’s working and what’s not. Adjust your themed days based on this feedback.


We dive deep into this topic within the Mompreneur Harmonious Method as Time Mastery is a vital component to finding harmony. We develop a workweek that makes the most sense for your unique business and goals and implement a dashboard where you know exactly what needs to be worked on when you sit down to do it. The key for Mompreneurs is enough flexibility but enough structure to be able to see growth.


Step 3: Create a Thriving Work Environment


Beyond Numbers and Organization


Creating a work environment that fosters productivity is about more than just organization. It’s about finding a system that allows you to achieve work-life integration. This will change as you go through different seasons of life as well as different seasons throughout your business. Having the structure and the flexibility is absolutely key!


Actionable Steps:


1. Declutter Your Workspace: A clean workspace can improve focus and productivity. Spend a few minutes each day tidying up.

2. Set Boundaries: Establish clear work hours and communicate these to your family and clients. Do not split your time between your family and your business anymore.

3. Take Breaks: Schedule regular breaks throughout your day to recharge. Use techniques like the Pomodoro Technique to maintain focus.

4. Personal Time: Dedicate time to spend with loved ones and pursue personal passions. This balance will enhance your overall productivity.


Something that has been so powerful for me, was creating my own unique business the way I wanted to run it. Not the way someone said it "should be". For me working 5 days is realistic most weeks. Some weeks I only work a few hours a day. Others it means I work more. Having the flexibility to have my "days off" be the days I could spend with my husband was important to me. Does this happen every week... no! But it happens most weeks. You are able to create the business and the life you want with the flexibility you desire. But it does take strategies and it does take letting go of the projected "should" complex of a business owner.
