Better Home Management
This article is just one of the many that I have written that will help women gain control over their situations at home if they happen to be in a difficult relationship. I am a firm believer in empowering others through helping them better their lives, and I believe that a person can only really have full control over their life when they take a leadership role in all that they do. This includes every area of their lives, from how they run their home to how they relate to their partner to how they earn their money. I am particularly interested in helping other women take back their power and learn to operate from a less self-sacrificing position – one which leads to feeling good about themselves and in control of their lives.
So, the aim of this and the next few articles in the month of July is to reduce the workload of the married woman by as much as 50%, with tips on the easiest way to run the family affairs. Hopefully it will ensure a happier, less stressful and more fulfilled life for her and her family and will free her up so that she can venture out into the world and create an income for herself, if that is her desire. It contains advice, strategies and planning for being a ‘super cleaner’ and successful home manager.
To achieve these objectives it is necessary first to define correctly what a housewife is and what her functions and jobs should be.
The stay at home mum is in fact a manager, a home manager. She is self-employed with a task to do; she takes no orders from a boss but decides herself what she wants to do and how she wants to do it. Therein lies her opportunity – to organise her life and work to best advantage for her own and her family’s well-being and happiness.
This is the first place that some people will experience what it is like to be a manager, and from that they will then be able to take that knowledge and apply it to running a business. Having run businesses for many years myself, and having started with absolutely nothing and no backup from my family, I believe that a woman will not begin to really feel good about herself until she knows that she can rely on herself for mostly all that she needs. Once she is in this position she can then make choices about what situations she goes into and steps out of, and not be stuck anywhere that she doesn’t want to be.
It seems evident that the same management principles as those that apply in a well-run business can be equally effective in the home.
