This episode is all about breaking free from the 9 to 5 grind and finding financial and time freedom through the world of sleep consulting.

I talk about the struggles I faced, feeling stuck in a high-paying job that left me unfulfilled and missing out on precious moments with my family. I share the pivotal moment when I realized that I was meant for more and my discovery of sleep consulting as a career.
    I also discuss the various attempts I made to find my passion, from MLM businesses to career coaching, and how none of them felt right until I stumbled upon sleep consulting. I emphasize the importance of passion in running a successful business and how it has transformed not only my life but the lives of the families I've helped.
    In this episode, I aim to inspire you to consider whether sleep consulting could be the path to creating the life you dream of—one where you have the flexibility to prioritize what's important to you and the financial freedom to grow beyond the limits of a traditional job.
    So, if you're feeling stuck, looking for a change, or simply curious about adding a new skill set to your resume, this podcast is for you. I'm here to show you that there is another way, and it's possible to find happiness, fulfillment, and success on your own terms.

    You Can Run A Successful Sleep Consultant Business Even If You've Never Ran A Business Before

I shared my personal journey from being a corporate hustler to a thriving sleep entrepreneur, aiming to inspire you to take that leap of faith into sleep consulting.
    We discussed how the skills you've honed managing a household are transferable to running a business. I debunked the myth that you need a formal business education to succeed and reminded you that every expert was once a beginner. Remember, everything that's easy for you now was once difficult, and that applies to business too.
    I also shared a story about Courtney, a recent graduate of our program, who overcame her doubts and is now flourishing as a sleep consultant. Her success story is a testament to what's possible when you push past your fears.

    Investing in Your Dreams as a Sleep Consultant

    Investing in Your Dreams as a Sleep Consultant

    In this episode we tackled a topic that's on many of our minds: investment. Specifically, we dove into the world of becoming a certified sleep consultant and what that means for your wallet, your time, and ultimately, your life.
    We started off by acknowledging a truth many of us face – as moms, we often put ourselves last. But here's the thing, investing in ourselves, especially when it comes to our careers and passions, isn't just okay, it's necessary. We can't pour from an empty cup, and when we're fulfilled, everyone around us benefits.
    In this episode, I got real about the fears and hesitations that come with making a significant investment in a certification program. I shared my own journey from corporate life to sleep entrepreneur and how that leap of faith has paid off in more ways than one. We talked about the importance of ROI – return on investment – and how it's not just about the financial aspect but also the emotional and lifestyle gains.
    I also peeled back the curtain on why becoming a certified sleep consultant comes with a price tag. It's not just about the cost of the program; it's about the value you receive in return. From one-on-one mentorship to lifetime access to resources and support, the investment is designed to set you up for success.
    So, if you're sitting there, dreaming about a life where you have the flexibility to pick up your kids early from school, plan vacations without financial stress, and truly enjoy your work, then this episode is a must-listen. It's time to stop watching the clock tick by and start taking steps toward the life you've always wanted.
    And remember, if you're ready to explore this path further, join our next live workshop at thecradlecoachacademy.com/workshop. It's time to redefine success, one sleep consultant story at a time.

    We also focus on the practical side of working with clients, from initial conversations to writing sleep plans and providing support. You'll gain hands-on experience with five volunteer clients, building your confidence with the help of a one-on-one mentor who's there to guide you every step of the way.
    But what about the business side of things? We've got you covered! The third component of our program is all about business building. We provide templates, guidance on setting up your website, marketing strategies (social media optional), and ongoing live support to ensure your business takes off.
