Building a support system will help you better meet your goals, and still have time for family and friends.
Family - If you have family close by, tap into those sources to help with child care, run errands, pack orders, maybe someone to bounce ideas off. My sister lives in another state, but I relay on her to flush out my ideas, help me make plans, and get her feedback.
Friends - Sometimes they are just as good as family. They will support you when you need it, and give you a place to vent as well. I have several friends in my support system and each one helps in different ways. When my daughter was younger, I had a good friend who would help me with transportation, theses days she offers to pick up things for me when shes going to the store.
Neighbors - They are close by and most of the time willing to help. Sometimes it can be hard to ask for help, but if your in a spot, Someone will always help.
Business Contacts - Network with people on and offline to share business ideas, talk shop, and do some cross marketing on social networks.
Don't forget to pay back the favor whenever possible.
Asking for help can be difficult, but having a support system in place you will find that you are able to get more things done and see your business grow.
