    Reality Check: When being a mom interrupts business plans

    Reality Check: When being a mom interrupts business plans

    I've missed you! I love podcasting. I love creating content. And I so love being able to help people and earn a living.
     
    But, reality check, being a mom will interrupt business. Period. And these past two months have been rough. What we've all been through is something I wouldn't wish on anyone. And the amount of time, energy, and focus has been above and beyond anything I could have predicted.

    Stuff happens, and we need to be prepared. 
     
    So this episode is about what life throws our way and how we as caregivers will likely take a hit when someone gets sick, needs to be hospitalized, or needs a higher level of care from us for some time. We must set up our lives to account for these gaps of complete demand on our time.
     
    Being more strategic with my earnings and creating income streams that aren't dependent on my time allowing for as much flexibility as possible, is now an absolute necessity, as is my daughter's recovery and overall mental wellness as a family.
     
    Related to this, check out the youTube video I created about a simple side gig where you can make $100+/hour with quick zoom calls for for a marketing company that does user studies and pays well. This is something you could do even on the tightest schedule, that's why I'm including it here.

    QUESTIONS for YOU
     
    1) Are you a mama or caregiver who started a side hustle or launched a new business over the last two years to gain more flexibility and control over your life and income? 
    I'd love to hear and share your story, how it went, and whether it was a success or a flop. I'll shine the spotlight on you, and hopefully, we can all learn from you!

    2) Are you interested in getting on podcasts as a guest and leveraging their audience? If so, what are your questions or thoughts? Send them my way! If I use your ideas for my new course, I'll shout you out and give you 30% off. :-)

    Staying in the Light Through Dark Times - Best Year of Your Life Game

    Staying in the Light Through Dark Times - Best Year of Your Life Game

    There's no question that these are dark times. I accept that. Heaps of doom and gloom are being served to us, and it's nearly impossible to dodge. Important news and events impact our lives and the lives of fellow humans. But dwelling in the darkness doesn't serve us, and we will all be better off finding ways to reach for and stay in the light. I believe that when we're in dark times, it's a good idea to focus on what's good and possible, find more purpose, and create ways to make life better. Doing so has a positive ripple effect in life, and anyone around us can feel it. It creates hope and gives us the fuel we need to impact change. 
     
    So I'm inviting you to tune in and do your best to play along with me weekly as we try to stay in the light to spite these dark times and the swirl around us. 
     
    Join me in using the Best Year of Your Life kit by Debbie Ford. It's FREE, FUN, and one way to strive for more while we face real challenges. A growth mindset, belief in something, and positive support are the two main things we need to stretch and grow. And I'm happy to be here with you to do this together so we can get through the dark days and deep challenges. 
     
    We'll follow prompts each week by Debbie Ford, a beloved personal transformation expert who appeared on Oprah numerous times before passing in 2013. 
     
    We can challenge ourselves to grow and make choices that support us in moving in a positive direction.

    Mother's Day - Honoring Moms through loss - celebrating YOU!

    Mother's Day - Honoring Moms through loss - celebrating YOU!

      Mother's Day - Honoring Moms through loss - celebrating YOU! Man, it has been a crazy wild last two years, and I was thinking about this episode and how to honor moms and all that moms have been through because I think of all that people have been through, the most significant weight has been put upon mothers and mother figures, caregivers, for sure, over the last two years.
    And so some moms are just spent and at their wit's end, and some mothers, through all of this, have learned to figure out more self-care, how to realign themselves, maybe with better jobs or with delegating things around the house so that they can take back their time and not be this wonder woman, super supermom.
    And then many of us also have lost parents. I lost my mom 16 years ago. Her mom right after that, so two maternal figures poof!--both were gone. I didn't have my kids until two years later, but that hole was there. Through this pandemic, so many people have lost their parents, their mothers, and loved ones. Or their parents are battling illness now. It's a lot, and it can make this day a big mixed bag of emotions.
    I get it. I'm sharing some thoughts about my mother, my grandmother, the sorrow I've felt for my mother never meeting my children, and how I turned that around last year, determined to start a new tradition for Mother's Day. And I have some ideas for turning things around for yourself so life can be sweeter and you can maintain more life in life in spite of inflation, pandemics, and dark news in the world.

    Avoid Burnout - Learn from these Entrepreneurs Ep 94

    Avoid Burnout - Learn from these Entrepreneurs Ep 94

    Avoid Burnout - learn from these Entrepreneurs and tap into intuitive guidance for your business Entrepreneurship can be a lonely and stressful journey. It's important to avoid burnout by learning from those who've been on the path just ahead of you. Tap into your intuition and let it guide you to success.


    I noticed some of the entrepreneurial women I adore and look up to were sharing some of the same challenges. All followed the same patterns and hit a point of burnout.

    While none of these women are mamas yet, they have inspiring success stories and a willingness to be vulnerable and share openly. There's so much to learn from them!


    Sadly, this came with a loss of identity, being subsumed into their businesses and following the leaders and coaches with a blueprint to follow—and by being hyper-focused by stats, followers, and views.

    They had no time to reflect on what makes them happy and what motivated them to create their businesses. They had the sense that success was solely about building millions and their lives were missing the personal aspects of fulfillment and joy in life that aren't related to income.


    They all shared similar ways of recovering. A lot of what they shared that helped had to do with being "true to themselves," listening to their inner voice, intuition, and what their bodies were telling them. Basically being guided by internal cues vs. focusing solely on external forces and voices.


    This episode is all about my observations following Sunny Lenarduzzi, Vanessa Lau, and Cathrin Manning. Each has their own story, and if you're not familiar, all have YouTube channels, so I'm linking some key burnout and lessons learned videos they shared.

    Check out Sunny Lenarduzzi's story


    Check out Vanessa Lau's story


    Check out Cathrin Manning's story


    If you're interested in slowing down and listening to your intuition, check out this episode about surrendering to your feminine. 



    Do you have a burnout and recovery story? 
    I'd love to hear what helped you get through it and what you do now to avoid burnout.

    Feminine Surrender vs Pushing - oracle card reading Ep 91

    Feminine Surrender vs Pushing - oracle card reading Ep 91

    This last week was school vacation week for lots of us in the US. Many of us moms had kids with us full time at home, vacationing, or maybe you got lucky, and they were at a fun day camp. Whatever the case, everyone's schedule is different, and things shift around. Even the best-laid plans can result in challenges and disappointments.
    Sometimes, I have these crazy days and weeks where nothing is working, and my mind feels like it's spinning. One of my favorite ways to help myself calm down and relax when this happens, which you might not know about. I'll whip out an Oracle card deck because those always seem to give me the guidance and specific message I need at the moment. Cool!
    If you haven't used them or heard of them, Oracle cards are a free-form way to get spiritual guidance or your daily message. I love working with an Oracle Card Deck by Alana Fairchild called Sacred Rebels. It's one of my favorites because it has such beautiful artwork on every card and excellent descriptions, making them easy to understand for anyone at any level.
    In this episode, I chose a card with a beautiful message that I think will resonate with busy mamas, and it ties into my next episode about what happens when we push too hard and detach from our intuition.

    Feeling your way to success with Amy Wong of Alwaysonpurpose.com

    Feeling your way to success with Amy Wong of Alwaysonpurpose.com

    It's International Women's Day 2022, as I post this. I'm thrilled to feature Amy Wong, an incredible Mama who's an executive leadership coach advising leaders, executives, and teams on all things related to growth, transformation, and flow.

    Here Amy shares the lightbulb moment after she had her first child and how she's shifted out of the traditional "shoulds" that are the formula for success and learned to tune in and feel her way to what truly lights her up, helps her live on purpose, be happy and truly thrive.

    Consider how anxiety, stress, living in survival mode, and being resilient often takes us OUT of our bodies and our natural intuition. We have the best of intentions but it skews and amplifies some of the most negative unhealthy emotions that make us feel stuck.

    So many thoughts here about shifting out of that and learning to BE and listening to our natural urge for something more.

    And, how that shift can be the biggest gift to regaining our sanity as moms and thriving and finding abundance and joy!


    Check out Amy's NEW Book! Coming May 4th.
