When my husband and I have decided to close our day spa biz and our business office so I can be a hands-on mom to my son and by choice, we didn’t hire a yaya for him.. we didn’t know it will affect our business this much #thestruggleisreal
We lost 90% of our monthly sales because of my decision to operate from home. (Yes, a little lack of planning here ,I must admit)
I am not so aware, that I have to clean the dishes, clean the potty, give my son a bath.. breastfeed him every 4 hours… cook.. and those mommy tasks will already occupy my whole day and turned out I only have few minutes left for work or none at all.
