Balancing work and family is nearly impossible. Like juggling, only so many balls can be up in the air at one time. When another ball is picked up, another ball must drop. It’s a give and take. A constant ebb and flow. While some of us struggle to maintain both aspects of our lives, others have figured out the tips and tricks to keeping both family and career afloat, without sacrificing our sanity or relationships. Our guest contributor, a mother of three and an Advanced Practice Provider, provides some key insight into ‘doing it all’ after witnessing the success of a close friend.

Added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2010, you are most likely familiar with hashtags throughout social media, but do you know where the term originated from and what the best practices are for how to use them?
Before social media took over the symbol, the lonely # [number or pound] sign was resigned to mailing addresses and pencil types. With limited use in everyday conversation, the pound sign was ideal for helping users of fast paced Twitter to group discussions in an easy to search platform. Since then, other social sites have adopted hashtag usage but few users understand how hashtags can be more than an aside at the end of your most recent post.
We’ve put together some tips and tricks for how to properly use hashtags on a variety of social sites and how Momtrepreneurs can capitalize on this social tool for growing your businesses.
Have you ever looked at someone and wondered what a typical day in their life is like? We bet most of us have. We wonder sometimes if our days are similar to others, especially people who are in the same season of life as us. Or we are curious how someone who is the complete opposite of us spends their days. How many times as a new mom have you scoured the web to find other mom’s feeding, sleeping, and daily schedules for their baby, just to be sure you’re on the right track and to feel a sense of camaraderie? Have you wondered how working mothers juggle it all? Do you really think stay at home moms sit on the couch and eat bonbons? Do you ever ask your friends how they spend their days or what they do on the weekends? We all want to know what the other person is doing. We’re curious by nature. Social media has certainly helped us out in this area, so thank you Facebook and Instagram.
