Being a mom is a full-time job in itself, and being an entrepreneur requires dedication, focus, and perseverance. Just ask our founder, Christina Bullock, a mom of two with one more on the way!

Combining these two roles can seem like an impossible task, but many women around the world are successfully navigating the challenges of juggling motherhood and entrepreneurship. Look at Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and Joanna Gaines just to name a few. 

One of Christina’s main missions with Joyasol is to inspire and encourage other women to go after their dreams and not let motherhood, or anything else, get in the way. Here are some of Christina’s top tips for balancing being a mom and going after what you want. 

Accept You’re not a Superwoman

It's okay to ask for help and delegate tasks to others - like they say it takes a village! Prioritize your responsibilities and be realistic about what you can achieve in a given day. Block off a few hours each day for work where you know you won’t have any interruptions. Take that time to really focus and make a to-do list of the things you must accomplish during that time, and things that can wait. 

Striving for perfection is unrealistic and overwhelming. Be okay with not everything being done perfectly and that things often take longer than planned.  Embrace the imperfections and learn from them. Remember that you are doing your best and that being present for your children and building your business are incredible achievements in themselves.

Set Clear Boundaries

Establishing boundaries is key to maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Create dedicated time for your family and yourself. By setting realistic expectations, you can avoid burnout and also ensure quality time with your kids. Whether you’re working or with your kids, try to be as present and engaged as possible. Tip: put your phone on do not disturb mode. If you have to work while watching the kids, try to make it fun for them and include them in the process! Put out coloring books and crayons and other fun activities to keep them busy.

Time Management  

Being organized and managing time efficiently is a vital skill for any entrepreneur, especially for moms. Create a schedule that accommodates your personal and professional duties. Identify your most pressing tasks and allocate focused time to complete them. Accept that some days there may be more work and other days more kid stuff. Stick with it and your dreams will come true.

Build a Community

Connect with other momptreneurs and female business owners who understand your unique challenges. Join networking groups either online or in-person to find support and inspiration. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals can provide a sense of belonging and encouragement during both good times and bad. 


When you’re juggling so much, it’s easy to put self-care on the back burner. But taking care of yourself is essential for your overall well-being and success. Prioritize your physical and mental health by incorporating regular exercise, healthy eating, and enough sleep into your routine. Consider a short nap or just taking a break if you're running on empty. Schedule time for activities that bring you joy and recharge your energy.

A few last words... don't give up and keep at it. We won't promise it will be easy, but we will promise it will be worth it! By going after what you really want now, you'll be setting a great example for your kids that they can do the same someday! And hopefully living a life full of purpose and joy that won't give you any regrets later on.
