    A Mom's Realistic Guide to Goal Setting (Part 1)

    A Mom's Realistic Guide to Goal Setting (Part 1)

    When you hear the words goal setting what feelings are brought to the surface? Excitement? Expectation? Eagerness? Or dread? Trepidation? Dismay? 
    There are so many goal setting systems that everyone says are foolproof. "Just do this and you to will accomplish your goals every time."
     A few years ago, my husband and I were dragged down the rabbit hole of goal setting. We were promised that if we just followed these steps, we would totally crush our goals. So we paid the exorbitant price for the class, watched it from start to finish, set up our Evernote notebooks as we were told to do (I hate Evernote by the way), and started with enthusiasm to take on the world and conquer it (after coffee, of course).
    You probably can guess what happened next. March rolled around, and I was so far behind on my written goals that there wasn’t any way that I would catch up. So I had to let the list go. Let the goals go. And let the idea of accomplishing everything, go.
     Amidst all of this letting go, I had an epiphany. You know the sudden intuitive perception, insight into reality kind. It was this. The reason I wasn't crushing my goals as promised was not because I did anything wrong. I mean I followed the steps. I couldn’t accomplish my goals because the system wasn’t designed for moms.

    The Best Baby Gear You Need Working From Home With A Baby

    The Best Baby Gear You Need Working From Home With A Baby

    Working from home with a baby is a juggling act that rivals any circus. It helps to have the right baby gear. This is my mom tested and baby approved list of the only baby gear you will need working from home with a baby.
    Working from home with a baby requires imagination and trial and error. It requires re-imagining your schedule, your sleep, dinner, and how to even work with a baby. It requires figuring out how to balance it all in the season you are in. 
    It is much easier working from home with a newborn because she doesn't want to move. She just wants mommy snuggles…Twenty. Four. Seven.
     When your bundle of joy becomes mobile that is when the excitement really begins. It helps to have the right baby gear to use while working from home with a baby.

    Your Homeschool Won't Look the Same as Mine: Melissa Brander

    Your Homeschool Won't Look the Same as Mine: Melissa Brander

    How we work and homeschool is unique to each family. Your homeschool won't look like mine…and that's ok.
    I have another guest that I am excited to share with you. Melissa Brander from Pocket Homeschool is a homeschool mom of 2 boys. She created a space and a business out of her love for writing and homeschooling.
    She share with us how she helps other moms with their own unique homeschool journey. The take away from this interview is your homeschool won't look like my homeschool. How you do business won't look the same as mine.
