How do you compartmentalize?

I do it but it something I can do while the kids learn. I do the books after dinner which helps a lot.

So your business is an at home business then? Mind if I ask how long have you been doing this?

 I try to set aside time in the afternoon to do the business finances, mailings, an "quotes."  We try to have school finished by lunchtime or at least the school that they need me to help.  Then all the household chores we try to jam into the hour between school and business and the hour between business and supper.  Obviously it doesn't always work out that way.  But thankfully I'm just the money person for the business.  Hubby does the installations.  I just run the office stuff.  (We are putting up solar installations)

I remember. So you don't do any of the labor installation just the administrative management part of the business? Still, that is difficult enough as is. I am learning all sides. So much info! Lol

 You seriously don't want me anywhere near the electricity part of it! LOL.  I'm learning a lot about the grants and contracts and such.  What business are you starting?
