19: 5 Books to Get Your MomLife + BizLife Ignited

Do you like to read your books or listen to them? Either way, I’ve got five books to share with you to get your MomLife + BizLife ignited.  These books were game changers for me at the start of my business. They helped me get in the right mindset and scratch the surface of the entrepreneurial world.  I believe that reading is so valuable because it’s a way for us to learn from other people’s experiences. Other people provide knowledge and perspectives that we don’t have, and books give us the opportunity to access that.  These books will help you start out on the right foot if you are just getting your business started, but if you’ve already been running your business for a while, it’s never too late to expand your learning!  Tune in to find out my top five book recommendations.  Follow along with me on Facebook and Instagram!

17: A Celebration + Motivation Lesson from My Twins

Do you need some motivation?  In this episode, I am sharing an inspiring lesson from my seven-year-old twins that will leave you with an A-game plan for more celebration and motivation.  As adults, we forget to celebrate our wins the way little kids do. Why is that?  Celebrating our wins is so important to keep us motivated for the next one. Plus, we all deserve a little more celebration!  I’m getting into why taking time to celebrate is so important, how to recognize and celebrate every stage of your wins, and how to use that to stay motivated. If you could use a little (or a lot!) more celebration and motivation in your life, I’ve got you covered.  Follow along with me on Facebook and Instagram!

16: Ignite Your Awareness Game with Thoughts, Opinions and Experiences

Are you projecting your own thoughts and feelings onto other people?  In today's episode, I'm going to invite you to ignite your awareness around your conversations.  What does that mean?  We’re going to take a look at how you are possibly projecting thoughts, opinions, and experiences onto people before they have the opportunity to create their own thoughts, opinions, and experiences. This is so important when it comes to the situations, interactions, connections, and collaborations we have as moms and as business owners.  We all need the chance to make our own judgments based on our own experiences, but we can be so easily influenced by the judgments of others. That’s why I want to talk about how to know when you are projecting something onto someone else, and when they are projecting something onto you.  Tune in to find out whether you are really thinking for yourself or not and what to do about it.  Follow along with me on Facebook and Instagram!
