You have worked hard your whole adult life in your career and know that you are making a difference in your company and community.
You feel a great sense of accomplishment but instead of slowing down your life just gets busier as you have expanded your influence on boards, committees and as an expert in your field.
However, just because you are focused on your activities outside the home, that doesn’t mean you are happy to come home to a whole bunch of life admin just waiting for your attention.
With the help of a cleaner you manage enough of the day-to-day chores of managing your household to make your home liveable and running; even if not like clockwork, it’s workable.
But no matter how many hours you put in the paperwork and things to do just gets larger.
How many hours a week do you spend cleaning your home? However many hours you put in, you probably wish your home was cleaner. At the same time, you yearn for more time to devote to your career or outside interests. Before you burn out, stop striving to do it all yourself and consider outsourcing some of your housework and home management duties to a professional service.
Why Feel Bad About Outsourcing?
Despite their busy, stressful lives, many women feel guilty about outsourcing some of their home duties to professionals. When you think about it, this attitude doesn’t really make sense, does it? No one can say you don’t work hard; the very reason you’re looking to outsource some of your duties is that your schedule is already overbooked.
So what’s the problem? For many women, outdated notions about “women’s work” bubble under the surface of the subconscious, leading to guilt over outsourcing. Sisters, it’s time to smash these misogynistic ideas! Outsourcing is a sensible and entirely acceptable way to manage your home life in the twenty-first century. Not only does it free up time in your schedule, but it also gives domestic service providers the opportunity to further their own careers.
