Presence over presents
Did you know according to one study done this year that 30% of Americans are still in debt from last year 2021 Christmas?

It’s much easier to get a present and charge it on your credit card then turning off your phone, putting it on silent and completely being involved in a moment.
Being involved takes a creativity, it creates communication, it means that you’re not multitasking and being completely focused in that moment.
And I would know, we’ve been owning businesses and full-time homeschooling since 2020.
We live on our phones and social media to get the leads in order to put food on the table.
It is a constant monster to wrestle daily-
Having the discipline of time, and knowing when to say no, and to put up boundaries
-In order to have a work-life balance
during this holiday season, even though it’s very tempting to always be on-the-clock as entrepreneurs -make sure you put your phone on “do not disturb” between certain hours so you can enjoy your family and make memories.
Wake up earlier to get your work done while the kids are still sleeping so that you can be completely focus when they’re up - it’s easy to have an idea for a business, and to be very excited about it, but it’s much harder to sustain your work and family relationship over a decade of business, and not let it completely consume your life.
Have a wonderful holiday season and remember to be present over just giving presents.
