Multi-tasking, Promises, and Vegas – hmmm….

As my patience is at the outer limits, I remind myself of promising you amazing content once the new site was up…..WELL, I knew there would be glitches, but I never imagined being so overwhelmed.  I am certainly not feeling in the groove this week.  That is right, even the Back’nGrooveMom loses her step sometimes.  As for the site, we are very slowly ironing out the kinks with the blog, and now we have to insert the rest of the pages.  As I am sure many of you noticed, the links for the remainder of the site are not active.  They will active be very soon. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed.


When starting a new project, developing a new website, taking on a new client, it is extremely important not to be consumed.  I know that it is easy to say and hard to practice, but we must not let go of our productivity on other projects, assignments, or promises.  Especially as moms, we still have to attend to our kids and our SELVES otherwise we cannot be productive in any scenario.  Our kids have to eat and enjoy our attention, we have to take deep breaths and pay attention to our own bodies and health, and our businesses need to be run as a whole not just one project.  We must MULTI-TASK.

SO, I am getting back on track, not staying up late obsessing over the site, and preparing to provide awesome content.  Over the next few weeks, I am going to focus on this concept of multi-tasking, which is why I would love for you to include one tip below on how you multi-task best!  As moms and mompreneurs, I always encourage collaboration, networking, and mentoring, so as I prepare to chat it up about multi-tasking, I ask that you share with others.

I would love to get an ongoing list running, so we can all experience how one another makes the most of our 25, I mean 24 hours of the day.  As mompreneurs, solopreneurs, and entrepreneurs, we can learn from each other and feel great about giving back!  See my cute little new pink comment box below?  Stick your multi-tasking tip right there…..

As for another promise that I made, back in January, I made a bucket list. On the top of the bucket list was taking my mom on a girls trip to Las Vegas after she recovered from major surgery.  That is where I am off to tomorrow – VEGAS, BABY!


It has taken major multi-tasking to get myself ready for this trip, the boys organized, and then there is the looming dark cloud of the site. UGH!  I will be working while I am away a teeny, tiny bit, and I am sure that I will find something fabulous related to being a mompreneur in VEGAS (like I did camping).  I am just thrilled to make true on this promise to my mom!


Until next week — C’est Lavie to VEGAS.


I will be reading your multi-tasking tips while I am gone, so keep them coming.  Rachel

    How wonderful. Next time don’t wait for surgery.
    Sometimes it is as if you work double hard prior to vacation and then after.
    Good thing you are Mom/Woman Extrodinaire.

    Thanks Haralee! I am definitely not waiting as long again for a trip like this ….
    Although it is a major multi-tasking effort!

    Rachel, congratulations on taking that trip with your mom. Big accomplishment!

    I multi-task best when I’m alone in my home office, jazz music playing in the background, and a cup of chai tea latte close by. Then, I turn my phone off for an hour. During that hour, I catch up on social media, return emails, and get one or two blog posts done. It’s my most productive time of the day.

    I’m working on allowing myself an entire half-day with the phone shut off.

    Traci – I need to try turning my phone off for an hour ….I would end up being VERY productive (I am sure). Rachel

    Rachel where are the shoes???

    For me it was finally asking the question, “Yes you can do that, but should you do it.” In other words it either isn’t important enough to do or you can pay someone else to do it while you focus on your core competencies. HUGE relief.
