3. Consider a call answering service.
You can get these with varying levels of assistance. On a very basic level, you can have someone take a message, which then gets emailed to you, so that you can call them back at a convenient time. This means your clients and prospective clients are always getting your voicemail, or you don’t have to worry about answering a call whilst in a crowded softplay centre with children tearing around in the background.
And on a final note, be kind to yourself. Allow yourself personal time that doesn’t involve family or business. Accept that you may have a few additional evenings working when you don’t usually, and call in for help. So many business owners are in the same boat, maybe see if any of your business owning friends might want to do a childcare swap to give you a few hours to knuckle down?
