How To Get Organised When Life Gets Overwhelming

Whether you are starting a business, a side hustle or are already in business; there are times where you feel so overwhelmed and unorganised.

We feel you. 

You have so many roles within your business, career and home life; it's understandable. It is normal.

Our advice? Create a blend. 

A blend takes away the pressure of what you ‘should be doing’ at a particular time of the day. When we start our own businesses, we sometimes forget that we do not have to adhere to the stereotypical 9-5pm anymore.

We are all about not overworking yourself so we are not saying you should be working at all hours of the day but in alignment.
