    Boundaries and productivity: the real answer to being more productive in your business | Ep 39

    Boundaries and productivity: the real answer to being more productive in your business | Ep 39

    Do you find productivity a challenge as an entrepreneur? You really want to be more productive because you want this business. You want to be successful as an entrepreneur to be home with your kids and make a big impact with your business. But you can’t seem to get things done. 


    It’s doesn’t make sense to you how you can want something so badly yet not take the action you need to take to make it happen. 


    Today on this second episode in the series on Boundaries, we are going to talk about how boundaries are crucial for productivity as an entrepreneur. 


    And you may not even realize that they are the issue. But the exciting news is you’re in charge of those boundaries so this 100% fixable. 


     


    In this episode, we look at the law of sowing and reaping that’s present all throughout the Bible and how this combined with boundaries teaches us to be responsible for every single choice that we make. While we have the freedom to choose, there are choices that lead to what we want (i.e. a successful business) and there are those that don’t. The key is figuring out how to make sure we are choosing the ones that lead to success. To do that, we have to learn to overcome the desires of our flesh (aka instant gratification and staying in our comfort zone) in favor of walking in the Spirit doing what God is leading us to do even if it’s scary/hard/uncomfortable.

    Boundaries as an entrepreneur: what they are and why they’re important in your business and life | Ep 38

    Boundaries as an entrepreneur: what they are and why they’re important in your business and life | Ep 38

    Do you find yourself angry, agitated or really stressed when it comes to your business? You may ask yourself why you’re so irritable all the time since you became an entrepreneur? Isn’t this supposed to be fun and exciting? 


     


    Maybe you feel like you’re really sensitive about people asking you about it or challenging you on business ideas. Or do you feel like you can’t work as much as you want because people interrupt you and don’t seem to take your business seriously. 


    I have been there and I can 100% say that it doesn’t have to be that way. 


    In this episode, we’re going to talk about boundaries and how they show up in your business and life, and why they’re important. 


     


    Here’s a hint: being angry, agitated, etc is often a sign that a boundary is being crossed. So knowing about boundaries and how to set healthy boundaries in your business and life can really reduce your stress level. 


     


    This episode is going to be a game-changer if you struggle with being confident in what you’re doing and really being sure of yourself. For most entrepreneurs, they don’t even know that boundaries are a factor or an issue. It’s like the hidden culprit behind your stress and mental drama that comes up as you’re trying to embrace being an entrepreneur and a mom. This episode can give some insight into this key area and what you can do to fix it because if you don’t, then it can have you questioning if you should be in business if it makes you so irritable and stressed all the time.

    Trusting God With Your Business Even When Success Feels Impossible With Little to No Sales and It’s Taking Forever to Gain Traction | Ep 37

    Trusting God With Your Business Even When Success Feels Impossible With Little to No Sales and It’s Taking Forever to Gain Traction | Ep 37

    If you’ve started your online business but haven’t seen many sales or gained much traction with it, you might be questioning if you should just quit and go back to working full time. Or maybe you’re considering pivoting your business focus to see if that helps. 


    What do you do when you quit your job and commit to a business that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere? 


    The reason you’re still doing it is because you thought you heard God tell you that this was your thing. That He wanted you to start a business and you were going to make a big impact in the lives of others and change your own life in the process. 


    In this episode, we’re going to talk about how to reignite your faith in God and His vision for you and your business as we look at Haggai 2:3-4; 2:8-9. 


    Looking for more support and accountability to keep you on track and focused on God as you grow your business? Then you’re invited to join the new Mama With a Calling membership community. 


    This is where you’ll be empowered to keep going strong in your business and fortified to resist any temptation to quit or get sidetracked with worldly pursuits like fame.  You’ll get Christian business and life coaching, Christian mindset training, accountability, and support. 


    For Black Friday, you can get in at only $15/month with this founding members price. It won’t be this low again. There will be Action Taker bonuses as well for the first 10 people to join. Go to mamawithacalling.com/blackfriday to learn more. 


    I hope this encourages you this week as you’re pursuing your calling.

    What to do with all the content ideas you have so they aren’t wasted | Ep 36

    What to do with all the content ideas you have so they aren’t wasted | Ep 36

    At some point in your business, you start to have a ton of ideas for how to reach and serve your ideal client. But the ideas flow so fast that you might not have the ability to turn around and create content around these ideas. 


     


    Ideas are great, but they don’t do much good if they get forgotten because they’re in a notebook somewhere. 


     


    In this episode, we are going to talk about: 


    Why these ideas are important 

    Two main things you need to do to manage these ideas


     


    Being a good steward doesn’t only apply to money. It can apply to anything God gives you, including ideas. 


     


    I hope this episode encourages you to be a better steward of the ideas God has given you.

    Feels like no one is interested in your business? How to handle it using 3 mindset shifts | Ep. 35

    Feels like no one is interested in your business? How to handle it using 3 mindset shifts | Ep. 35

    Do you ever wonder if anyone is listening? Is anyone really affected by the work you’re doing? 


     


    It can feel very frustrating to keep putting all of this effort into your business yet feel like you’re talking into the abyss. If you just knew that someone was out there being affected or impacted, then it feels like it would make the journey so much easier! You’d happily create content and products to serve people if you had the certainty that they were actually on the other side. 


     


    But what about when you’re not seeing that? 


     


    Does that mean you should give up or that you’re doing something wrong? 


     


    In this episode, I want to talk about how to handle this as an entrepreneur and how to reframe it as a Christian entrepreneur doing this business for God. We talk about 3 perspective shifts you can make to really change how you see this lack of response. 


     


    If you’re needing extra support working through struggles you’re facing as you pursue your calling, book a free breakthrough session. This is perfect for getting a solution in one specific area. Or buy a Power Hour session for 60 minutes of 1:1 coaching and I can help you work through what’s holding you back so you can break free of that to move forward. 


     


    I hope this encourages you this week. 


     


    If you’re looking for more accountability and support as you grow your business and want to strengthen your faith in the process, then you don’t want to miss this Black Friday offer.

    Have confidence in your business decisions when you use these 5 simple steps | Ep 34

    Have confidence in your business decisions when you use these 5 simple steps | Ep 34

    Do you know when things just feel off about your business? You have that unsettled feeling of not really being sure that what you’re doing is the right thing or the best option right now. It’s when you seek clarity. As entrepreneurs, we can feel like we don’t have clarity a lot. What business should I pursue? Should I offer this product or that? Etc. 


     


    If we think about it, what we’re really looking for when we say we want clarity is we want peace.


     


    When you realize that, you can see that as Christians, we have access to an amazing gift. We have the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in the ways God wants us to go. He gives us peace and understanding. 


     


    In this episode, I’m going to share with you 5 simple steps for getting clarity and finding the peace you’re seeking in your business. Using these steps, you will be able to keep aligning yourself with where God wants you to be on your entrepreneurship journey. 


     


    To help you, I’ve created a free guide that walks you through the steps I talked about here and has some pages for you to do the journaling and really dive into what God is telling you so you can get more clarity.
