For a woman balancing being both a mom and entrepreneur, also known as a mompreneur, back-to-school season means going back to babysitting headaches, back to running from one after-school activity to another and back to being homework helper.

To help you balance running your business and managing your kids’ schedules this school year, take a look at some of our back-to-school tips to make this your easiest transition yet.

Be flexible & keep things in perspective

Running a business is stressful enough, but what if you have to unexpectedly pick up your kids from school in the middle of the day or take over carpool on a day that’s not ordinarily yours?

Get organized & stick to routines

Set routines — and stick to them. Bagatelle-Black is often still working when the kids come home from school. They do their homework and then put it in a designated spot on the kitchen counter.
