As a life and wellness coach, I have always worked in the food service industry as well. When things in my entrepreneurial career were slow I always had the Hilton hotel restaurants to support me and my family, especially with health insurance for everybody.
As my life in fitness and writing advanced, the workshop bookings came pouring in, and I began to be asked to teach various exercise classes at different studios, as well as privately. I help people get healthy, please fat, and turn down the negative Nancy in their heads.
Losing 50 pounds myself gave me credibility, and so I needed to re-organize my work life in order to fit in my personal endeavors and my beautiful family of four.
The Hilton hotel is very gracious and allowed me to switch my shift so that I could finish earlier in the evenings, and then still get a good nights sleep in order to take my kids to school in the morning, teach exercise, exercise myself, and write weekly blogs and create videos.
I think having a personal need it to be early everywhere has afforded me the time to sit in my car and write my books. I literally hand wrote four books on composition notebooks that I purchased from the dollar store. Then I transferred them to the computer and edited, edited, edited.
Asking for help is one tool I used to organize and juggle my life. I asked for help from the Hilton, I ask for help from my husband with early morning childcare duties, I asked for help from the neighbors as babysitters, and I asked for help from my kids as they got older in order to be able to learn the technology stuff. My kids are my “mouse squad!”
I hope this helps readers jungle parenting in work.
