You know that old saying, “A woman’s work is never done”? Well, for mom entrepreneurs, that’s doubly true.

It seems like we’re always working.

Working on work. Working on home. Working on homework.

Working on planning meals, working on doing laundry, working on paying bills.

Working on business plans, working on sales strategies, working on launching.

Work, work, work. 24/7/365.

And when we’re not working, we’re worrying about work. Am I right?

Well, I’m tired of seeing you working and worrying all the time. So I’m  here to show you seventeen things you can stop working on and worrying about. Sound good?

Read on. 🙂

13. Writing and replying to emails

You wouldn’t reinvent the wheel, would you? So why do you keep writing the same emails over and over and over again?

With Gmail canned responses, you can cut down on repetitive emails and replies by creating templates that you can “drop in” to your email or reply. For instance, I receive a ton of emails asking for overseas manufacturing referrals. With my nifty canned response, I save myself some time and typing, while still being helpful.

14. Creating ebooks, Kindle books, Apple iBooks, Nook books, web books, PDFs for physical books

15. Learning how to use WordPress

16. Signing contracts, tax forms, etc.

17. Promoting your posts and products

You’ve worked really hard on writing awesome content and creating amazing products, right? So then what happens after you publish or launch them?

Well, for a few days or maybe even a few weeks, you get comments and sales. But after that it can be Cricketsville.

Search WordPress for some great plugins to easily maximize your archives and promote your products.
