The Art of Nurturing Ourselves: Doña Bumgarner, 46
Thank you to everyone who has followed along with our #onekindsummer campaign. I am excited to start up our interviews again! With the spirit of self-compassion in mind, today we’re focused on the art of nurturing ourselves. Doña Bumgarner and I talk about her unusual childhood, her winding path to motherhood, and how she recreated her life after nine months of cancer treatment. It was a joy to talk with her. Doña is a coach who works with women who know that there is much more to life than their kids - but they’ve lost themselves in the role of motherhood. She helps them make sense of their lives and learn to stand up for themselves and the lives they want to create. You can find her at Nurtured Mama, where she blogs and has a podcast called The Nurturing Habit. You can find the show notes at www.fortiesstories.com. This project is a labor of love for me, so if you are enjoying it, I would be grateful if you would not only rate and review it on Apple Podcasts, but also share it with a friend. I love hearing from people I know say they’ve listened to the podcast and how they’ve connected with an episode. It gets us into a conversation about how life is really going that wasn’t always happening before. I treasure that, so send an episode that resonated with you to a friend with a note. You might just spark something. Thanks for listening, and I'll see you next Tuesday!
This week we talk to Life Coach Doña Bumgarner about how moms can un-schedule their lives to make time for things they love and time for self care. We talk about automating things in your week to free up time mentally and physically. We talk about how younger moms struggle with trusting their intuition more than moms who are older and why this happens. We talk about how to trust ourselves more as parents. We talk about what self care means and how Doña took steps to make changes in her life and what Terri's journey in making a chance looks like at the moment. Lastly Doña gives tips to moms embarking on a new journey especially as mompreneurs.
Ep139: Doña Bumgarner on Podcasting, Coaching, Project Management, and Productivity (Friendpreneur Series)
Jump Start Your Joy
This week I’m so excited to have Doña Bumgarner on the show as part of the Friendpreneur Series. This series highlights conversations I have with friends, who are also entrepreneurs, and we dish the behind the scenes realities of starting a business, and what it looks like in real life. Doña Bumgarner is the powerhouse behind the “Nurtured Mama” blog, the voice of the “Nurturing Habit” podcast, and an amazing coach. Doña is a dear friend who I met through coaching. She and I share so much in common - we are both project managers, both coaches, both podcasters, and both moms to first graders. I really loved getting to talk to her about her journey and where she’s at. We also talk about her experience in my “Jump Start Your Podcast” class, which is where she got her start for her show, which is in its second season. Why you need to listen: There’s a lot of becoming an entrepreneur that’s about highlighting your strengths, and leaning in to what you already know and what you’re an expert at. The thing is, there’s a lot of “noise” out there that will tell you there’s a certain way to do things. A certain way to market yourself, a way to be a coach, what a coaching practice looks like, and what it means to be big or to have “made it.” There’s so much noise, in fact, that it can be easy to second guess what you know. Or to make busy work for oneself trying to fit that mold. Even when you KNOW marketing, you KNOW how to run a project, and you are a darn good SME “subject matter expert” in many fields. The doubt or the noise or both will throw you for a loop and make you think maybe there’s a different or better way than the one you’d naturally follow. Here’s why you need to listen to this episode Dona’s doing a couple of things that are very different than what all that noise might want you to do. First, she’s looking at ways to layer in her project manager background with her coach training, and creating something brand new with the marriage of these two specialities. Second, she’s actively working on creating structure in her day to mindfully do LESS with her time. You read that right. She’s using time management and prioritization to make room to do less, and to ditch the busy work. This allows her the space to breathe, to be, to spend time with family. The project manager in me really loves this, both that she’s leveraging what she knows and is so good at (creating structure in chaos, a la project management) and creating something new with it with her more recently acquired skill set, putting a “why” behind the structure. She’s focusing on structure to leave more room for the other things that matter in her life. In this episode, Doña Bumgarner and I talk about: Her journey to becoming a coach Her experience with having breast cancer and being a survivor How society places worth on women being able to “do it all,” and how judgements (internal and external) arise when doing it all is not sustainable (and it never is) Time Management, and how it’s generally the pursuit of getting it all done (but doesn’t need to be) Doña’s goal of teaching productivity so people can focus on doing less (instead of more) Who Doña loves to work with in coaching, and how getting unstuck makes all the difference Podcasting! And her approach to seasons; doing one season on grief and the next on self care Dona’s approach to maintaining a podcast, by doing bi-weekly episodes and setting a time limit on how much time she spends on each episode Healing emotional scars of the past The crossroads of productivity and self care Her 3 thoughts on jump starting your joy: look to the past for clues on where you are headed in the future, allow the shift to happen, get help if you need it to process change, and create structure to make space for the things you want to do Resources Nurturing Habit: Doña Bumgarner’s Podcast Website Nurtured Mama: Doña Bumgarner’s Coaching Website and Blog Overwhelmed by Brigitte Schulte on Amazon Get to Work Book by Elise Blaha
In this short episode, I talk about the healing path through grief that I learned about from guests in this season of the podcast, and through the season of grief I have been living in in my own life. If you, too, are grieving, I hope that this series of conversations, and this episode, are of support to you. Find show notes and links to all the Season 1 episodes at Nurturing Habit.com
