As an Amazon entrepreneur, you can work just about anywhere. It’s one of the major perks. But being a digital nomad doesn’t always mean sprawling out on a beach in between emails and Zoom meetings… and that was before the pandemic.
If this wasn’t quite what you had in mind when you signed up for location freedom, Titan Leader (and one of our founding Ladies of Titan) Kata Phipps has some top tips to keep entrepreneurs, who happen to be Moms, sane in these challenging times.
The facts: Over 90% of women feel guilty for leaving their families to engage in some form of work. Over the past year, men joined the mix, now having to experience the “guilt” of being home yet not being “available” due to remote work.
Now you have new “colleagues” at home, and they are NEEDY.
Many children around the world have been learning from home since the arrival of Covid-19. Now you are officially a lunch caterer, their office admins, their therapists and assistants. Kids are like mini executives, welcome to “every day is a Monday”. But there are things you can do to make the transition a little easier.

Working adults with children have been given a rare opportunity to take a break and experience recess and playtime with their kids but it will pass, and we don’t want to regret the days when we could’ve, should’ve, would’ve. Avoid judging yourself. If you don’t reinvent the wheel during lockdown that’s totally fine. Just tucking those cranky colleagues into bed each night is an accomplishment. And it should feel like it.
Find achievements that help to ease the guilt of working duties and print a reminder of these if you need to. In fact, ask your children to remind you of these, and let them come up with things that Mom does great at.
