One of the things I often say is, “If they’ve never tried to do this with children playing LEGOS under their desk, then we’re not on the same playing field.”

How to Take a Real Break

Some of us may have gotten this whole “taking a break” thing a bit wrong.

Are you taking a break for real?
Are you really resting?

Mompreneurs: How to Overcome New Business Overwhelm

I completely understand and relate to the feeling of overwhelm starting a new business brings. Sometimes we begin to second guess our ability to pull it off, especially while our kids are still home.

I also know from personal experience that if we step back a bit and take a breath (or two or three), there is wisdom to this madness we call mompreneurship.
