It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.
How to choose a morning routine that actually works for YOUR life
If I had a nickel for every time I came across another guru claiming to have discovered the most meaningful, useful morning routine that will help everyone in the world become as successful as an Amazon CEO, I'd be as rich as an Amazon CEO.
The truth is that there is no such routine, because everyone's life is different. We're all coming at the day in different seasons, from different circumstances and with different values. Our morning routines should fit our life.

Using Trello 101
If it were possible and legal to marry an online organizing tool, Trello™ and I would be hitched by now. I've talked about it before and I won't stop because Trello has made my life infinitely easier, my life more management and my business highly organized.
So what is it? It's a visual organization tool (think Pinterest and Post-Its had a baby) and in this episode, I'm going to break down how to get started and all the ways you can use it in your mom life (and beyond!)
Making decisions in your home like a CEO
One of the best decisions I ever made was to run my home like I run my business. It's allowed us to create systems and routines that suit everyone and keep us on track like a well-oiled machine.
Being a CEO isn't about making all of the decisions, it's about making the right ones. You get to choose the type of household CEO you want to be and design your life in a way that fits your values.
Why we're committed to having uncomfortable conversations with our kids
"I'll tell you when you're older." isn't a phrase we say in the Hennessy house. My husband and I are committed to having uncomfortable conversations with our children at every age (in age appropriate ways, of course.)
It can be difficult to get over our own discomfort and lack of confidence, but what an amazing opportunity it is to have an open dialogue with our children and create a safe space for them to ask questions.
3 simple ways to set your future self up for success every day
One of my favorite ways to stay productive is to think of my future self as a different person, someone worthy of success and peace. She is someone worthy of having things set up for her without extra and added stress.
This idea of setting your future self (even if it's just the you in a few hours) is so freeing and can help build momentum in everything we do. Here are 3 simple ways to get started and show your future self she's worthy of time freedom.
Amazing motherhood podcast!
I am a stay at home mom to an almost 2 year old and pregnant with my second baby. I’ve struggled a lot with the transition from being a working mom to stay home with my kiddo, but at the same time it was exactly what I wanted to do. I just found this podcast and wish I found it sooner! I have definitely been binging the last few episodes and they are incredibly helpful, supportive and encouraging. I know I’m meant to become more of an entrepreneurial work from home mom, but haven’t been able to find very many podcasts that both support stay at home moms AND encourage them to go out and do more if that’s their desire. This one is perfect and I love Kendra’s personality. Thank you for the support 🧡
Moms supporting moms
Loved the authenticity and support from Kendra. The topics and real advice is so important for mom's and often don't get talked about in real life because we are too busy. Grad a beverage, find a comfy spot and feel welcomed.
Kendra is my homegirl!
I feel like I know Kendra personally. Her conversations feel so authentic honest and caring. I love listening while I’m cleaning or drinking my coffee in the morning as if we were homegirls kicking it. Lol
