Blogger and mom of littles Ashley Conway joins us for a look at how to gracefully back out of commitments, how to weigh whether a commitment is good for you in the first place, and how to decipher most urgent versus most important tasks when pursuing entrepreneurship.

What you’ll hear:

  • What we Moms do in order to record podcasts, and shout-outs to the Boss Dads that help make it possible.

  • The difference between a busy and a fruitful life.

  • How to start a day well and also flex to accommodate the needs of children.

  • Tips for new bloggers: setting priority and pace

  • “Moms can’t always say, ‘I’m sticking to this schedule.’ It doesn’t work that way.”

  • How we women walk around with a lot of “shoulds” - most of them are self-imposed.

  • Ashley walks us through the 6 steps to backing out of commitments gracefully.

  • The difference between task-oriented and relational personalities, and how this affects our perspective and communication.

  • The importance of sincere apologies.

  • Why setting boundaries when making a commitment aids with understanding for everyone later.
