The question I get asked most often by people wishing to have more time.

For the past 16 years, I have used a $4.95 planner. โฃโ โ โฃโ โฃโ 

This planner was used as I finished my master’s degree when pregnant with my second baby while my husband was in PA school.

This planner helped me organize our 18 moves in 16 years. โ โฃโ โฃโ โ โฃโ โฃโ 

This planner is where I planned out life while going through life coach certification and working full-time.

This planner was used when I lost 100 pounds and ran my first 1/2 marathon. โฃโ โฃโ โ โฃโ โฃโ 

It’s also the planner used while building my successful six-figure life coaching business while parenting 3 girls.

How to make the middle magical too!

The beginning often feels exciting, motivating, or creative.

The end often feels satisfying, whole, or successful.

The middle sometimes feels messy, overwhelming, and challenging…unless

You become aware of what tasks in the middle bring the smae feelings that you feel at the beginning and the end?

The middle is where the magic is if you intentionally bring in those feelings in on purpose.

What are you doing in the middle that allows for excitement, excitement, creativity, satisfaction, and success?

When you become aware of the middle and bring your feelings there on purpose, you enjoy the beginning, the middle, and the end.

Don’t Let Excuses Hold You Back

The right coach can propel you forward in your life and business!

Are you ready to figure out what your priorities and goals are in life?

“I can’t keep going like this!”ย my newest client just expressed.

Sadly, it’s not the first time I’ve heard a client mutter those words.

โ โ Clients come to me when they are โ burnt out, exhausted, lack clarity, motivation, and direction in what to do to simplify their business and motherhood.

โ โ They like doing both (well, at least they did) however, they are starting to resent all of it! (being exhausted and lacking clarity can do that)

โ โ Here’s the first thing I tell my new clients.โ 

“If you don’t know what you’re aiming for in your business and motherhood, you’re likely going to feel exhausted, unsatisfied, scattered, and behind.”

โ โ Priorities are not your goals. They are much more insightful and directional!

โ โ Priorities tell you the what and the why you are doing something and the actions needed to get the results you desire. โ โ 

I help my clients uncover their priorities and identify their targets.

Together, we make the targets stand still so you can make progress and gain traction towards them!

I will show you how to dig out of the pit you feel like you’re in and find the hope, clarity, and direction you desire so that you can KEEP doing it!

I help successful women in business “KEEP DOING IT” without all the overwhelm, exhaustion, and defeat. โ 

How to recognize and celebrate small victories in your life?

I’ve been working with a client whoย feels unbalancedย and is having a hard timeย recognizing where she is doing a great jobย in her motherhood. โ 
โ 
I asked her what she had done that day. โ 


She told me that she prepared her children a healthy lunch, spent time with them doing a new activity, and planned to take them to a pumpkin patch later. โ 
โ 
I told her those were all a series of successes. They were all evidence of doing a great job in motherhood. โ 
โ 
Her reply, “yeah, but those are normal. Everyone does that!” โ 
โ 
I had to remind her that not everyone does, and even if everyone did, it doesn’t make her actions any less!โ 
โ 
Will you PLEASE do me a favor? โ 
โ 
This week, will you make an intentional attempt to notice where you have victories? Notice the things you are doing even if you think “everyone does them.” โ 
โ 
When we downplay our series of successes, it makes it hard to feel balanced and believe in ourselves as a great mom! โ 
โ 
I’d love to hear what you discover!  Hit reply back a let me know one thing you did today that makes you proud! โ 

What kind of impression does your brand leave on your clients?

โ โฃโฃโ 
They are running successful businesses, but instead of focusing on that greatness, service, success, they are overwhelmed and fall victim to…โ โฃโฃโ 
โ โฃโฃโ 
“Yeah, but if they knew how messy my house was”?โ โฃโฃโ 
โ โฃโฃโ 
“What if they knew I fed my kids frozen pizza, again, and put them to bed in what they wore to school?” โ โฃโฃโ 
โ โฃโฃโ 
“I’m embarrassed to admit how many emails I have in my inbox.” โ โฃโฃโ

Do you know of anyone that thought this on their wedding day?

On our wedding day do you think either of us thought…โ 
โ 
“I don’t really expect this to work”โ 
โ 
“This might fail”โ 
โ 
“This is probably a dumb idea” โ 
โ 
You might think I’m crazy for asking such a question, right!? โ 
โ 
Sometimes, when my clients, start a new program, launch a new course, hire a new VA, increase their prices, or host a webinar, they think these types of THOUGHTS! ๐Ÿ˜ฌโ 
โ 
” I already know this isn’t going to work” โ 
โ 
“I don’t really expect this to turn out”โ 
โ 
“I this totally going to fail” โ 
โ 
What would change in your business, and your motherhood if you thought the very same things that you did on your wedding day? โ 
โ 
“I’m so excited for the future”โ 
โ 
“I can’t wait to see how incredible this is”โ 
โ 
“I’m in it for forever”โ 
โ 
“This is going to be good”โ 
โ 
Whether you’re struggling in your motherhood feeling unorganized and not sure how to schedule in all the things you think are important or you’re worried about having enough time in your business to get all the tasks completed on time if you thought… โ 
โ 
“I don’t really expect this to turn out”โ 
โ 
You know what you’re setting yourself up for, and it’s not pretty! โ 
โ 
I work with incredible businesswomen who know how to believe the “wedding day” thoughts about their business, but when it comes to streamlining and scheduling their TIME, motherhood and the tasks of the day they are living in “this IS a total disaster”!โ 
โ 
If you want help organizing, scheduling, and structuring your time so that you can be the amazing mom that runs a thriving business, we can work out a plan to move forward so that you can create the motherhood you planned to have when you also started your business! โ 

Focus on this one things for better results

Prior to becoming a coach, I spent many years as a special education teacher. โ 
โ 
I noticed that many teachers would hone in on a child’s weakness and then have them work on that over and over and then wonder why there wasn’t much progress. โ 
โ 
I had a different approach. โ 
โ 
I had them work on and refine their strengths. โ 
โ 
As they worked on their strengths, they become stronger. โ 
โ 
They became more confident. โ 
โ 
They become more willing to work on something that was harder.โ 
โ 
They discovered more of what they were good at.โ 
โ 
They lit up, and that enthusiasm was passed on to others. โ 
โ 
They developed strengths in areas they had no idea were options to them. โ 
โ 
It’s ok to notice an area you would like to improve in, but if you want the most improvement in your motherhood and business, focus on your strengths. โ 
โ 
Use your strengths to grow your business and your motherhood relationships!โ 
โ 
Curious about what your strengths are? โ 
โ 
Here are a few questions that might help you uncover them. โ 
โ 
1. What are you good at?โ 
2. What do you enjoy doing? โ 
3. What is fun/easy for you to do? โ 
4. What do other people say you are good at? โ 
5. What is something that you can do for hours? โ 
6. What excites you? โ 
7. What do you enjoy learning about?โ 
8. If you had to talk about something spontaneously for thirty minutes, what would you talk about?โ 
9. What is the best part of your motherhood? โ 
โ 
Tell me below one answer to the questions above. โ 

Success shouldn’t be held back!

My oldest daughter has an August 6th birthday. โ โ 
โ โ 
When she turned five, she had 5 friends with summer birthdays too, yet I was the only parent that had their child start school that year. โ โ 
โ โ 
The rest of the parents “held their kid back” another year and waited to send them when they were 6. โ โ 
โ โ 
When some of the other mothers asked why I didn’t hold Camryn back, I had two quick thoughts. โ โ 
โ โ 
1. I expected her to succeed and love kindergarten. โ โ 
โ โ 
2. It didn’t occur to me to hold her back. She was ready! And if there were areas that she wasn’t “ready” in yet, she would learn those things! โ โ 
โ โ 
Luckily, this story isn’t about whether or not to hold your child back. โ โ 
โ โ 
However, it is about whether or not you’re holding yourself back. โ โ 
โ โ 
That thing in your business or motherhood that you’ve been “holding off on”, “waiting to be ready”, waiting for “more time”โ€ฆ
โ โ 
How would it be different if you โ โ 
โ โ 
1. Expected to succeedโ โ 
โ โ 
2. Believed you could learn what you need to learn to have it be a success? โ โ 

And now my 19-year-old killing it in college! She’s a junior that just turned 19 this month! They said she wasn’t “ready” to apply to nursing school, but look who’s totally ready! โ โ 
โ โ 
You change everything when you expect to succeed!

I bet you’re not thinking it!

My youngest daughter just tried out for the HS tennis team and made it. She’s still working as a house cleaner while also keeping up on her wrestling workouts and learning how to drive. โ 

My middle daughter works several hours each week at a local taco shop, takes a few AP classes, picks up extra shifts, has a killer social life, and still uses some of her time to sell adorable jewelry at the local farmer’s market. โ 

My oldest is taking summer classes, just got hired at the mom and baby unit in the hospital, kept her old CNA job as PRN, and still makes gorgeous wedding cakes each weekend for her clients. โ 

Is this what you were thinking?

“Wow, these girls are selfish? They have so much going on, they are working a lot, have school, their plates are full, and now they want to add more into their schedule? That is totally selfish!”

I bet you didn’t. 

I bet you thought something like, 

“Good for them!”

“They are ambitious girls following their desires.”

“These girls sound amazing!”

Why is it, when moms want to add growing a business or reaching a goal to their already packed schedule, we think,

“maybe we are being selfish?” 

Why aren’t we saying

“That’s incredible, way to go after our desires!”

“Good for us!”

“Our ambition sounds amazing!”

It’s HARD!

It’s hard feeling selfish when going after a dream!

It’s hard questioning yourself in your motherhood and business growth.

It’s hard thinking that something has to be sacrificed for your business to grow!

What if it’s doesn’t have to be so hard? 

What if you don’t have to sacrifice the things you value most (especially time and money) to be a great mom who makes great money in her business? 

There are simple solutions inside my 1:1 coaching program.
