Here at Boss Mom, we know all too well the challenges of raising babies and businesses at the same time and you need more than just great resources (which we have) you also need a strong support system (we have that too).

Just like all moms you need a simple business because life is complex and you should never have to apologize for having a sometimes unpredictable schedule. You can build a really successful (and profitable) business in 15 hours a week, you just have to know how (and we are going to show you).

We interview amazing ladies who share their struggles and successes as well as solo episodes where I guide you through our Nurture to Convert System designed to help Boss Moms raise their business and babies at the same time.

    How to Build Community and Create a Culture of Giving a Crap w/Nicole Terrell

    How to Build Community and Create a Culture of Giving a Crap w/Nicole Terrell

    Being surrounded by people who genuinely care about us is so important for human beings, but sadly, it’s rare. Far too many people walk around feeling unsupported, unseen and broken.
     
    Creating connection and building communities where they feel cared for, rooted for and seen makes such a huge impact on how they show up in the world.
     
    How do we build communities where people feel at home right off the bat? Why do we have to shift from being the teachers to being the facilitators?
     
    In this episode, Certified Life Coach, and the Connections Director at Nurture to Convert®, Nicole Terrell joins me to talk about the importance of community, and how to go about building it.
     
    We are so busy all the time that we also don’t recognize the power of someone just seeing you. -Dana Malstaff  
     
    3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
     
    -An individual isn’t scalable, but a community is 
    When we step away from being the teacher and the center of our community, how does that multiply our reach? 
     
    -Being stuck is a rite of passage
    How do we see being stuck as a set up for something awesome, not a setback?
     
    -You get to be the person that heals people
    How do we help people feel less judged, broken, unseen and lonely?

    How to Nurture Your Audience

    How to Nurture Your Audience

    A few years ago, the answer to growing a business was adding a bunch of value and doing all the teaching and training yourself. Today, if we want our audience to hang around, fall in love with us, share us, have loyalty and buy from us, we have to build communities.
     
    How do we make people validated, valued and also create connection with shared beliefs and a vision for the future?
     
    In this episode, I talk about the easiest way to grow our businesses and build a loyal audience.
     
    If you want to grow your business nowadays, the name of the game isn’t to create a bunch of value, it’s to facilitate people feeling valued. -Dana Malstaff  
     
    3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
     
    -The power of a shared vision 
    How do we make people feel good about being a part of what we’re building?
     
    -You can’t have a business without a community 
    How do we grow without constantly teaching, training and adding value?
     
    -You’re not alone, you’re not crazy
    How do we build communities that foster a sense of belonging?

    Permission to Pivot: Shifts and Iterations in Our Businesses Are Totally Normal w/Krista Lockwood

    Permission to Pivot: Shifts and Iterations in Our Businesses Are Totally Normal w/Krista Lockwood

    The journey of growing our businesses is anything but a straight line. We evolve, change our minds, and things shift in our worlds. We’ll go through stages of figuring things out, reworking things and pivoting and that’s totally okay! That journey builds up a toolkit that makes our communities stronger.
     
    How do we figure out if we’re in the right niche and talking to the right people? How do we stop feeling bad about pivoting and moving into new ideas?
     
    In this episode, returning guest and founder of Motherhood Simplified, Krista Lockwood returns to give us a peek into her evolution and share why it’s okay for our ideas to change.
     
    A teacher doesn’t share with you as they are learning. The teacher takes the best lessons from everything they’ve learned -Dana Malstaff 
     
    3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
     
    -Creating a results framework
    How can we reverse engineer what we’re good at so we can succinctly explain why it works? 
     
    -It’s hard to build a community on celebration 
    Why is it so powerful to create a space where people can share their struggles without judgment? 
     
    -Sharing from our wounds vs. our scars 
    How do we know if it’s too early to start teaching something even if we’re passionate about it?

    Krista Lockwood is the Founder of Motherhood Simplified, where she teaches decluttering for moms who don’t want to be full blown minimalists. In 2013, she and her husband moved from Alaska to Florida with only one suitcase each. While she doesn't believe you need to go that extreme, she has been able to master the balance of having enough, but not too much. Krista strongly believes we all have what it takes to create the lives and homes we want, no matter what that looks like. On top of her courses offered on decluttering, Krista is the host of the Motherhood Simplified Podcast.

    Snap Back into Focus! What to Do When You Feel Unfocused and Uneasy

    As Boss Moms with kids returning to school, getting back into old routines and figuring out new ones, feeling unfocused and stressed out is inevitable.
     
    How do we bring ourselves back to center after feeling out of alignment? Is it normal to feel unfocused? Are we spending our time in the right places?
     
    In this episode, I talk about how to reign our focus back in, and why we should give ourselves grace.

     
    You are not unfocused. This moment is unfocused and if we recognize that, it’s fixable. -Dana Malstaff
     
    3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
     
    -What we need to focus on
    How do we bring ourselves into a space where we feel good about what we’re doing?

    Vibes That Thrive: Navigating Energy for Your Dream Life w/Nicole Brodie

    Vibes That Thrive: Navigating Energy for Your Dream Life w/Nicole Brodie

    There’s a lot of energy in this world. That’s why we can feel drained by certain people but energized by others.
     
    Understanding what energy makes us feel good and finding more of it allows us to build the lives we want. Also knowing what’s low vibration for us steers away from things that zap our energy.
     
    How can we understand the different energy around us and how it connects to our lives?
     
    In this episode, serial entrepreneur and mom of 3, Nicole Brodie joins me to talk about understanding vibrations, manifesting the life you want and how affirmations and gratitude connect to a happy life.
     
    I really believe that the universe is there for us. It will bring us what we want but we need to make efforts, take action and get out of our comfort zone. -Nicole Brodie
     
    3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
     
    -What do we expose ourselves to?
    How do we pinpoint things that create a low vibration so that we can avoid it?
     
    -How limiting beliefs affect energy 
    Negative self-talk is something that everyone deals with, but can we manifest what we want if we don’t believe we deserve it?
     
    -Committing to happiness
    Changing things in our lives takes work, how do we do it?

    Q4 Preparation: How to Finish the Year Strong

    Q4 Preparation: How to Finish the Year Strong

    Summer is over and we’re in the throes of our kids going back to school. That means a return to our routines, which can be overwhelming, but also exciting for our businesses.
     
    We have more space in our schedules to get work done and we can leverage a season where people are in buying mode.
     
    If we want Q4 and the beginning of next year to be powerful, there are 4 things we have to ask ourselves. How do we let go of things that aren’t serving our businesses and key in on what’s working?
     
    In this episode, I share a simple exercise that will set us up for a strong finish this year.

     
    Real success is in consistently testing, tweaking and growing. It’s consistently assessing and letting go of and only keeping the things that are really working and doing more of those. -Dana Malstaff 
     
    3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
     
    - A case for not doing all the things 
    There are so many things we could be doing in our businesses, how do we find what aligns with our energy and goals?
     
    - Permission to let go 
    How do we sync ourselves up with what’s working and eliminate what’s not without guilt?
     
    - Testing, tweaking and growing
    How do we check in with ourselves and our businesses on a regular basis?

A Breath of Fresh Air for Busy Mamas

Not only do I leave every episode with practical ideas in motherhood and my business, I breathe a little deeper knowing I’m not alone. So grateful for all the ways this podcast pours into me each week!

Sam Denis ,

TBH, Amazing!

I know first hand that building a business and a family at the same time is not light work! I wish I found this podcast sooner because as soon as I did, I listened to three episodes and was hooked. Full of actionable advice and delivered in such a relatable way, this podcast is definitely for you if you want to get inspired and be reminded that moms are amazing and we can build it ALL!

Ally.21 ,

Each episode is helpful

I’m always able to find a tool, perspective or information that’s helpful in each episode and new nuggets when I listen to an old episode too!
