We’ve been through a couple of crazy months. Our lives have been turned upside down, I miss my family and friends but I am also very lucky because I am naturally a homebody. If you ware wondering what I am talking about, it is now May 2020 and we are in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic. We have all had to adapt to new ways of living and we are unsure when it will come to an end. It has been a learning curve, figuring out how to homeschool my son and still fit in time for my business but we have found a routine now. That’s why I want to share with you how to find time to market your photography business with kids at home. It can be done as long as you accept you may not get as much done as you did before.
How to find time to market your photography business
I decided to pull back the curtain and show you a bit of my life. Together with my son, we filmed a video to give you a bit more insight into how we manage. We did this as a project on one of his days off school.

Mindset is key
I have kept my sanity throughout lockdown because I have been working on my mindset over the past year. There are some things we can control and some things we can’t. As soon as I knew my son would be off school (we actually took him out a week early) I accepted I would get less work done. That acceptance is what has enabled me to move forward. I’m not stressing about how little I’m getting done. Instead I’m getting on with what needs to be done in the small amount of time I do have.
If you are looking for some help on mindset, I highly recommend the book “Everything is Figureoutable” by Marie Forleo.
