One of the biggest errors we make when entering into entrepreneurship is failure to accurately calculate the cost of running and supporting our business. 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.”
Moms building a business with kiddos still living in the home is not a small feat. We gotta respect the season ladies. So figuring out how to flow and align ourselves with the our life and home rhythms is KEY. It’s vital in order to make this thing work.
There are signs and red flags 🚩 flapping everywhere before we hit that brick wall, yet something inside of us wants to just try to suck it up and push through it - it being the overwhelm and exhaustion.
Oh my goodness. The madness must stop. I promise you I wanna make t-shirts that say “Burn out is NOT an option.” Cause it’s not.
Anybody else out there want to approach the holiday season with a lot less busy and a lot more slow down?
This season, for me, is always a time to reflect on the past year, reset for another 12 months, and REST.
But all too often, if not careful, I’ll quickly replace the time I desire to dedicate to a slower pace with hustle, bustle, and vain activities that steal my available margin for the things that matter a bit more.

Have you ever spent a few hours working - seemingly hard - and when you were finished, you didn’t really know what you’d accomplished?
Or, have you ever felt a bit scattered in your thinking when trying to figure out what you should be working on in the first place?
In this blog, I want spend some time helping you:
Identify the priorities for your business
Outline tasks to support those priorities
Create a measurable plan that you can execute week after week in order to move your business forward.
I’ve heard the phrase, “self-care is a luxury” over and over again in my questionnaires and polls with the moms I serve. And I get it. Life, family, and business brings with it so many outside demands for our time, our skills, our emotions, our abilities, we don’t readily see the margin available in our schedule to fit in times to take care of ourselves.
But here’s what I submit to you: If we don’t figure out how to make ourselves a priority, we are setting ourselves up to eventually crash and burn. We can’t be who our family and business needs us to be if we are not well.Read More
