Homemaking is the making of the home culture. This entails the memory-making, comfort-food-eating, tradition-setting, feel-good-space-setting, etc.

Housekeeping is the tactical keeping of the home which includes doing chores, paying bills + shopping for groceries.

Both are their own individual + valuable parts of home management.

In this episode, we’re talking about the most key difference between Homemaking + Housekeeping. The two words are used interchangeably, but it’s our belief that there’s a BIG difference that matters significantly in entrepreneurial homes.
