What are the success strategies in being a hands on parent while earning? This is actually one of the highlights in the iH.O.P.E. Summit 2017 held at Bulawagang Haribon, Insular Life corporate building in Alabang, Muntinlupa last April 22, 2017. I’ve met different inspiring speakers and parents during the summit. Again, I am thankful to be part of the guest panelist to share my joys and some tips on how I manage to be a hands on parent while earning. Although the schedule for my panel sharing in the summit was in the afternoon, I arrived early.

Highlights of the iH.O.P.E. Summit 2017:
1.) Success Strategies in Being a Hands On Parent While Earning
The biggest challenge is to set your top 5 personal priorities in your life. To give you an example, my top are family, work, mommy life enrichment, Travel, and learning new things.
- Manage your time based on your priorities– for us parents, I think we have the same priority to be a parent first, then our career.
- Plan how you use your time – you should focus on Top priorities. I’ve learned that the COMPASS represent your mission, direction, and values while the CLOCK represents your appointments, schedules, and activities on how you manage your time. A helpful tool presented to us during the summit is the Covey’s time Management Matrix. You should identify your important and urgent task in the first quadrant, the important but not urgent in the second, the not important but urgent, and the not important but not urgent. Based on the time log sheet we’ve used, there is a realization on which task, should you remove, limit, or adjust.
- Manage your time based on my clearly defined-goals – Ms. Teresa introduced to us the 80:20 rule. The 20 percent of what you do produces around 80 percent of your really important task. Which 20% of your tasks achieve 80% of your results? And, Which 20% of your time at home builds your family life the most? There is a hands on parent while earning tool kit for this available at handsonparentwhileearning. You should distinguish your clearly-defined goals based on your key roles.
The above success strategies are the brief I got from the iH.O.P.E. summit 2017 talk of Ms. Teresa Dumadag as the speaker in “How to manage your time so you you be a hands on parent while earning and how to earn full time income through freelancing. You might think that it is easy to do this, but actually once you try her guidelines or worksheets, you may find out that there are some missing pieces in your plans to achieve your goals as a hands on parent while earning. I’m glad that I am in the right direction. When I completed the tool sheets given to us, I found out that what I am doing leads me to who I am now for being a hands on parent while earning. Ms. Teresa’s tools and guidelines serve as a motivation, empowerment, and a reminder for me to be consistent with what I am doing right now.

This way, his children learn a sense of responsibility at home and the value of money that you have to work for it.
