Communicate With Your Team Regularly
The first thing that you are going to need to do is communicate with your team regularly once you have got them all set up. Hiring people online isn’t as difficult as it seems. All you need to do is post your job description, and wait for people to come to you. You can conduct interviews via a video calling app so that you get a good idea for the person that you are thinking of bringing on board. This works well with your home life as you don’t have to go out of the home to meet with thes people, ensuring you can be around if your kids need you.
Once you have established your team, this is where you need to be communicating with them frequently. When the business starts to grow, you need to think about how you are going to handle change management and things like this. But, this comes later down the line, so just make sure that you are communicating in the start.
Save Money With Home Working
Home working is ideal when you are a mum because it means you are always around. You might be doing something at any given time but that is okay because you can stop for a minute to make sure everything is okay in your home. Just make sure that the people you are working with know you are a mum and then they will understand if you disappear for a few minutes at a time.
You will find that home working is cheaper as you are not paying for physical property, expenses, journey to and from work etc. As such, if you want to set up a business as a mum, you should do it from home, at least in the beginning. You have enough to focus on without trying to add all of this in.
