Hey y’all. Sit down and chat with me hear? I have a conflicted heart right now.
I’m about to have a heart to heart with you. But first, how are you feeling? I make a lot of post sharing my knowledge and experience as a mother and business owner. I don’t cater much to the life of a wife because there are too many dynamics to make a marriage work and frankly your marriage and how its run is none of my business. 🤷 That’s a topic for another day.
As you know I am a mother of 12. I home school, teach, run my business, keep my home, and make sure to devote quality time with McRush. I know people feel like I am some type of supermom but I am not. Even with all the planning and organization I still have my days every now and again. Just as if you landed your dream job, everyday will not be perfect but it is important to know how to get through it without losing your mind.
I have been doing this mom thing for over 20 years and I still would never have the audacity to say I am a pro at parenting. I can surely attest to ‘every child is different’. But I have taken every lesson I learned to make me a better parent. And let me tell you, some of those lessons are a hard pill to swallow. When people ask “how do you do it” I always say one child at a time.
Being a business owner is scary and adventurous. I love what I do and I love to see the lives it changes. I am all business when it comes to my passion of consulting and coaching. My biggest clients see the greatest ROI when working with me because they have learned, much like parenting, that they don’t know everything and are willing to learn from their “mistakes” and sometimes that looks like making the decision to follow someone else’s lead.
While these clients open the doors for my company to gross 6 figures, it is my mom entrepreneurs who inspire me the most.
When we are little girls we play house daydreaming of being someone’s mom. We never considered that for some of us that would be our only title for the rest of our lives. Not to mention being drained by that title, losing ourselves in that title, knowing nothing more than that title. But what about the other dreams and aspirations beyond and before that title.
Sadly, some never find it. They put it on the back burner hoping that one day they will turn on the stove and heat up their ambitions again. 6 weeks after baby is born, when he starts school, when she finishes kindergarten, when they start middle school.. The next thing you know, you’re talking yourself out of it because you’ve gained weight, you don’t feel seen, you’re too old, you can’t compete in the market, and a whole load of other things we say to ourselves to talk ourselves out of fulfilling the one dream that would make us proud.
I started my Firm because I wanted to help those people who needed the support it takes to start, run, and grow a successful business. To take their dream of becoming an entrepreneur and turning it in to the reality they always hoped it could be. Too often than not, I run into moms who just do not know where to start and how to balance it all successfully, effortlessly, HAPPILY. People always say find your niche in business but my niche has found me.
I have been dabbling on focusing more on mom entrepreneurs but now I believe its time to jump in. There is nothing or no one more important than you and I believe at one point, we all knew this about ourselves but somewhere along the journey of mom, wife, worker, we lost our ability to see our worth AND value it because you matter too.
I know some days its hard. You don’t feel appreciated and the work you do is quickly undone. Sometimes you feel like you are living in a hamster wheel. Your self care has suffered and you no longer love yourself like you once did.
My goal in 2022 is to reach 500 woman and remind them that they STILL deserve all the things they want the way they want them NOW. Because your life doesn’t stop at Mom.
