“But I don’t even like to do my own taxes!”

So you might be thinking that life in the tax business doesn’t sound like any fun at all.   You might even be thinking that you’d prefer changing 12 diapers and washing 6 loads of laundry to preparing just one tax return.  I’m hear to tell you that you are not alone!  While there are a few of us ‘tax mommies” who love doing taxes, there are just as many who have no interest at all.  The good news is... both groups can survive in the tax business.  You just need to find the right people to help you along the way!

The first thing you need is a good support system at home.  Who can help with the kids when it’s April 14th and the office is busier than you ever dreamed it would be?!?  Who can you count on to take care of your babies when you are out building your business?

The next thing you need is a good support system at the office.  Who can help keep your business running smoothly while you are at home spending some much needed time with your family?  Who will be the one to make decisions on your behalf when you want to be at your daughter’s first soccer game or home in time for a bedtime story?

If you can get to a place where you have this figured out, you just might have the recipe for optimal work/life balance.  Isn’t that what we’re all looking for?  Isn’t that the topic of most Girl’s nights out and Wednesday morning play-dates?  I know it was for me....  I love the fact that, on most days, I feel like I have the best of both worlds.  Not many working mothers can say that.  I speak from experience!
