Hey there Mama, we see you girl!
Meet Polly Gage and NiCole Easton - the Founders of The Intentional Mompreneur. Like you, we both took the side-hustle gateway drug and quickly realized that we wanted to turn our "business opportunity" into something more-- something with greater influence and a reach well beyond our friends and family.
After years of serial-entrepreneurship, Polly landed in a direct sales company where she inspires and leads her Top 2% Team with her superpowers of productivity, connection and organization.
NiCole is a career digital marketer and an expert in sales and development. Her superpower is bringing clarity and casting vision for other entrepreneurs' strengths and brands.
We come together as a power house to infuse intentionality into the lives of mompreneurs. With life systems and business strategies we help our clients produce massive results, while fortifying the family.
We are passionate about strengthening and empowering moms to live a life with purpose, ON purpose. We believe that intentional living changes EVERYTHING. We want you to know that we are committed to helping you build a business and brand of your own that you can be proud of. One that will ultimately change your life and the lives of those in your family, without any mom-guilt.
Our motto is "Set your intentions with GRIT, bathe them in GRACE, and cover them with CONSISTENCY". We believe when a mother joins this movement and applies INTENTION into every area of her life, she impacts her family and our world for good. Only then can she feel true peace, fulfillment and joy in her journey of faith, motherhood, family, friendships and business.
We want to invite you into our world. Join us every week, where we are going to come alongside you and have real conversations. We'll provide action steps and tangible solutions; like life systems and business strategies- so you can build a profitable business, become a more present mother, and impact our world while growing a stronger faith.
Always lifting you up, Polly + NiCole
Episode 010 - Resistance - Not the Rebel Kind
Why Identifying and Combating Resistance in your Life and business is the secret to success as a Mother and Business Owner.
While it could seem like an abstract concept, the fact that resistance exists and sabotages your success is so far from abstract...it is very real.
That is why we have named this "the resistance is real". If you've ever tried to do something big and have had to do it with the fear, you have heard the voice in your head
say, "Nothings going right, this isn't meant to be"
Most of us grew up looking for the "signs” that it wasn't in the plan. For me(NiCole), it links back to the way I lived out my faith.
If it was God's Will then it will all work out. I think this narrative, more than any other, has held us back from more things we could have done,
The Roots of Resistance:
Negative Self Talk
Fear: imposter syndrome (fear of being a phony), fear of failure or success, intrusive thoughts anxiety and worry.
Circumstances: like lack of support. whether it be physical support or emotional or even just belief
Failures and Discouragement
Ways to combat it:
Action--even sloppy action
Look for conformation
Create a clear direction
Expect the resistance to come
The path that is right should force us to Lean on God. The best stories have a struggle, or they wouldn't be worth the listen.
"Sometimes the ease road isn't the indicator that you are doing the right thing, the difficulty of it is " -NiCole
"Happy Endings wouldn't be so happy if the road to them wasn’t paved in resistance" NiCole Easton
Episode 009 - Friendships That Aren't Awesome On Accident
Intentionally Awesome Relationships- How to grow your team and keep your friends
We have all had an expert or two tell us how to use our existing network of friends, family and connections to get us closer to our goals in business.
Let us help you...this is not a good strategy. While it may be a decent way to make the first rank in the company or hit this month’s goals, it is not a long term strategy for success in your business or in your personal life and relationships. Something home-based business teaches us to do is to subconsciously blur the lines between our personal lives and work. No one else does this in business and economics does this.
If you really think about this, it comes down to boundaries...and where there are no boundaries, there is chaos. Where there is chaos, there is no sustainability. Where there
is no sustainability, there is no growth.
Polly teaches us the 'Make someone's day" method to keep your heart and intentions pure. WE go over an actual strategy and plan (thanks polly) on how to build lasting, meaningful relationships with other women and other family units. We give real ways to foster current friendships and even tips on starting new ones.

Episode 008 - What the school?!
In this episode we talk about the struggle of Pandemic schooling. Whether you are homeschooling or schooling-at-home we have support for you.
On behalf of all pre-pandemic homeschoolers I would like to declare, this is NOT HOMESCHOOL. I repeat, this is not homeschooling.
School-at-home and pre-pandemic homeschooling are not the same. All children need interaction and socialization. Today we put our heads together for some real talk and tips on how to navigate what school has become in light of COVID-19.
Coronavirus has literally shaped the way we see and do schooling. It has turned us all into device-dependent maniacs with more zoom meetings then we ever wanted in a lifetime.
We talk through the reality of the situation and discuss ways to beat the boredom, work with teachers, and bring children peace and routine at home.
Our family relationships have become very burdened. Navigating what it's like to have to work, school and mother ALL AT THE SAME TIME. We each have learned different lessons in the pandemic, and I know you have too. Let’s chat and solve some problems together.
We will discuss setting up a school room, finding a rhythm, learning in a family environment. We will talk a lot about extending grace to yourself, your children and to teachers and partners.
This is an opportunity to get to know your children in a different way and show
them that they are unique and capable. No one's gonna love them the way you do. The most well-meaning teacher doesn't know your child like you do and isn’t able to take the time and attention with them that you can. Cease the day!
Also, my favorite part of this episode is how to integrate faith into the daily routine and learning rhythms to help children have the discipline of connecting with God on their own and developing a personal relationship with him.

Episode 007 - The "T" in S.H.I.T. - Time Management
Spilling the TEA on Time Management
We all have done it. We wake up without a plan and before we even get started we are overwhelmed. We go through the day wondering where the time is going and if we got anything done at all.
We've screamed and yelled, we've lost our shi'*...and so did they.
When we don’t start the day with the plan the entire household feels it. For some of us (enneagram 7s I’m talking to you) rigidity scares us. We are worried we will be bored, lack motivation and miss out on something that requires spontaneity.
What do we really crave? Time Management. And this girl, POLLY...she’s got us all no matter what type you are. In this episode we talk about what's keeping us from success in this area. We talk about procrastination, multi-tasking, distractions and interruptions. We will learn to plan our days, prioritize things. how to decide what's important and what needs to go. Lean in and you will get the ultimate crash course in time blocking and time management. Lets Go girl!
