    Mompreneur Hacks

    Mompreneur Hacks

    We usually talk more about the business side of being a “mompreneur” here in The Business of Thinking Big, but today I want to focus on the mom side of things. Being a mompreneur presents unique challenges, as we often feel like we have to “do it all”. Today I share my hacks on how I get more done while juggling both business and motherhood. You'll notice I talk a lot about the power of routine in our household and how I rely on the help of my partner to live the life we want. 


    This is not about getting it all perfect, this is about helping you achieve your own version of success and these tips will help you do that. 


    We do NOT need to choose between being a good mom and a good entrepreneur, but we have to embrace "good enough-ism".


    This highly unique episode will make you smile because I’m cooking AS I’m recording this episode! Something I’ve never done before, but thought I’d try because this is what being a mompreneur is all about - multitasking! Note: cooking sounds may make you feel hungry, so prepare some snacks to munch before you play this episode ;) 


    Some of my mompreneur hacks: 
    Keep your meals simple, and don’t try to constantly reinvent the wheel. I have 10 key meals, and cycle through them every week. My family hasn’t complained about this yet, and it saves me a lot of time. Cooking may be a stressful venture for most of you mamas listening in on this, and I totally understand why. If I had to make new meals every single day of the week, I would definitely be overwhelmed. That’s why I don’t. I only cook 4 days of the week, and my husband takes over on the weekends. Since my meals are relatively simple, it doesn’t take me too long, and I actually feel like it’s quite therapeutic! Take time to plan ahead. Sundays are my planning days. Planning for meals ahead, planning my “date nights”, and any other key events in the coming week. 

    Be sure to tune in for my full list of Mompreneur Hacks!

    Asking for Help with Katherine Earl

    Asking for Help with Katherine Earl

    We feel we have to do it alone, but we get so much further, faster and more joyfully by letting people in. We are scared to invest in ourselves, because what if it doesn't pay off. But we need help to grow and it is worth investing in it. 


    Today I’ve invited Katherine Earl, winner of the 2021 Mamapreneur Fund Grand Prize, to speak on how she hired women to help her grow from within our community and how her application for Mamapreneur Fund got accepted. This would be a great episode for those of you who want to learn how to stand out when applying for business funding as we will share tips on that as well. 


    Her business, just over a year old, is called “My Life Creative”. Her brand creates mindset tools to help kids build their self-esteem, creativity, and self-love. 


    Katherine shares some of the ways her business has grown since the beginning, and the ways she’s been leveraging our community, Mamas & Co., as well as other experts to support her in building her business. She recalls some of the important lessons she’s learned from the various “boss moves” she’s made, despite all the fear she had to overcome to make those tough decisions. 


    She tells us about the tremendous amount of knowledge and confidence she’s gained since joining our community, such as being able to pitch her business to the media.

    Your 2021 Business Audit

    Today’s episode will be similar to what I do with my paid clients in our coaching calls. I am going to do an exercise with you, which will allow you to take a “health check” on 10 areas of your business and get immense clarity into how your business is doing! Better yet, it won’t take more than 20 minutes of your time. At the end of this episode, I am also going to share with you 10 resources to get you started on improving the different areas I talked about in this episode. 


    Here are some of the aspects of your business I want you to reflect on, and decide how happy you are with them:
    Your visionYou customersYour schedule (working hours)Your systems (how streamlined is your business)Your enjoyment!

    I want you to thoughtfully complete this exercise with me, and be honest to yourself. How many areas are you completely satisfied with? How many areas do you need to work on? Be sure to stay until the end for a list of resources that will help you improve upon the weaknesses you’ve identified. 


    If you’re ready to get into it, find a nice and quiet place all to yourself, and get your pen and notepad ready to take some notes!

Thinking Big Thoughtfully

Lianne hits important and relevant topics in an insightful, motivating, and practical way. Her speakers are a wonderful mix of industry experts and other mom bosses. Lianne shares her own experiences which include struggles and wins with thoughtfulness and honesty. The episode entitled Recovering from Crisis with Clara Power addressed so many pertinent points, especially with the current reality for so many of us small business owners. Thank you, Lianne for continuing to support us mamas and for sharing your journey.
