We’ll also hear from Sharon McKnight owner of SMc Home Care Consulting in Alexandria, Indiana. Sharon left the traditional marketplace to work from home so she could spend more time with her family.

    I learned from this podcast how to utilize each social media outlet effectively. I will try Facebook live for my Etsy business and blog:The Hull Homestead,and also be more intentional with quality,cooonsistent content. Thank you Christy for sharing your knowledge and allowing others to share their knowledge and stories. Love the podcast!

  • Kate Finney says:

    One of my favorite time management techniques is to schedule blocks of time in my day for everything. I don’t just put appointments and places I have to be on my calendar. I also schedule writing time, time for research and study, time to make phone calls or write e-mails. Otherwise, I tend to overbook and not allow enough time for things that need to be done with just me, alone, at my desk. My time is just as important as the time I spend with others.

  • Mary Dickens says:

    Christy, I have listened to every podcast at least 3-4 times. Can hardly wait for every other Tuesday when you share it. You are inspiring and teaching and coaching so many of us … Impact is huge!! Thank you !!i share you w every woman I meet who is even a little bit interested in business / dream building.

  • Bianca Woller says:

    I echo the comments about using social media outlets effectively. Etsy didn’t work with the time I have availible to work on my business, but there are other options and one of those should work!

    For time management I like to use lists. Sometimes I have to put a time limit on each item to keep myself moving. Just because I could spend half of my day cleaning or several hours on my meal for one doesn’t mean that I should do that today!
