What is the mission behind MerckINK and how did it all begin?
This is always going to be a bit of a juggle for me, but I have found it to be tremendously helpful to designate specific “spaces” or times that are for business and for family. This goes back to Question #3 above for me. While so many moms are rockstars at working from home with kiddos underfoot, I find that I am extra overwhelmed and stressed when my time is divided in that way. For us, this means that the little kiddos do go to pre-school part time at our church, and that is my designated work time. When they’re home, I try my best to make that time family time, but business and family time do naturally overlap on many occasions. When I absolutely have to work on something while the kiddos are home, I’ve found a sweet spot in involving them in some way, like inviting them to help me package items or another similar task. Balancing work and family also means I need to be really intentional about putting the shop on vacation when we are away, and setting clear boundaries for myself so I can give the most to my family.
