Many of our Boss Moms run businesses that require them to meet clients in person. If your business is a face-to-face, belly-to-belly operation, the covid-19 pandemic has forced you to close doors and lose your bread and butter business.
The good news is there is a way to keep our businesses going and income coming in if we pivot and shift what we create, promote and sell.
Photographers are one of the most impacted professional groups, and one business owner managed to shift her photography operation to suit new consumer needs and challenges, create income and earning opportunities for fellow photographers.
How can we use this time to focus on what can move the needle in our businesses? What business lessons have we learned during this time? In this episode, I’m joined by photographer, entrepreneur and creator of the Swaddle Pro, Michelle Brewster. We talk about pivoting in a hard hit industry.
Even in this time, we can still show up virtually and help our clients. -Michelle Brewster

With everything that’s happened in the world in the wake of COVID-19, a lot of us have gotten stuck in a rut and having our kids home all the time has taken a toll on our creative processes. However, to create sellable products, we have to find ways to jolt ourselves out of that foggy state of mind.
How can we kickstart our creativity during this period? Is it even possible to run a business smoothly in-between home-schooling our children and keeping them entertained?
While we have to give ourselves grace in this time, at the end of the day, we have businesses to run and things to do.
On this episode, we discuss how to create sellable products while we’re trapped in survival mode.
Having our kids around all the time can be very distracting. Try the 10-minute method: brainstorm for just 10 minutes at a time and see what sparks of creativity you get. -Dana Malstaff
This time has been challenging for many of us Boss Moms because we’re out of our normal routines, and we’ve experienced the frustration of dealing with altered, shifted and even broken routines.
Routines are incredibly valuable to our performance, and when we don’t have them, things can be incredibly hard for our children and even for us. We need a structure to rely on, keep us moving forward and even to give us some freedom.
Why are routines so important to the way we tick as parents, business owners and families? What are the 4 core aspects of building an effective and personalized working routine as a working mom?
In this episode, blogger, speaker and founder of I Swear I Love My Kids, Allison Braasch, talks about her WAKE system and how she uses it to help moms create routines that work for them.
Psychologically, having a routine helps us get through certain things. Knowing we have a routine to fall back on helps us breathe. -Allison Braasch
