From Mom to Mompreneur The 10 Essential Traits My Kids Taught Me about Running a Business

Everything I know about being a Mompreneur I learned from raising my Kids As a business owner I am sure you have experienced times when you felt overwhelmed, flustered, frustrated, desperate, confused and out of your league. Some of you may have wanted to give up. You may have thought that you were in over your head. This was not the reason you got into business. You pictured freedom to choose how you spent your time, being your own boss and having time for yourself, but this is not the reality. I am going to show you that you can have all those things if you just look back at what you learned from being a parent. I have been thinking about how I learned to run a business, where I drew the wisdom from, what experiences helped me along the way and what drives me to continue even when things don´t seem to be working out. Every time I get the same answer; I learned it from being a...

The Business of Being a Mom-How to Eliminate Stress and Love Your Life

This post is dedicated to you girls, you know who you are. Being a stay at home mom has its perks but it also has a downside. The image of being what I call a front line coordinator is awesome for those that don’t do it. It is coveted by working moms world wide because they believe you get these incredible moments, fantastic times when you connect with your kids and that life is just easier, smoother and pleasant when you are home. We are going to explore that in this post. What is life like a working mom? Wake up, get the kids up, get them to brush their teeth, get dressed, eat breakfast, all the while trying to get your face on, trying to do something about that hair and pick clothes so you look presentable. You drag them to the car  a panic because you are afraid you will be late for work. Shit you forgot the lunches, OK Tim Hortons drive through and were good....

When you lose hope know there is a new tomorrow

I just spoke to a good friend of mine that recently lost her husband. She has two children 4 and 6 and they are struggling just as she is with the loss of the love of their life. Loss is a part of life but it never seems to be something we get use to or can fully accept. After a heart felt conversation with her it makes me reflect on life, love and how to go on. She had lived through a very difficult childhood, challenging adolescents and heartbreaking mental illness but has always been one of the strongest people I know. She reminds me of the Gloria Gainer song I will survive because no matter what happens she seems to be able to bounce back. I admire her strength, tenacity and perseverance. She has broken the circle of dysfunction that she grew up with and is a fabulous mother and role model.   In the past 3 years I have lost my grandfather, aunt, father in law and best friend. Before that...

A little bit of selfishness

Is taking time for yourself being selfish? Is making sure that you have extra energy reserves to much to ask? Taking time to go to the gym for some exercise or taking a walk in nature by yourself sound good to us all. We love the idea of curling up with a book in a quiet place and reading to our hearts delight. We relish the thought of not having to do anything for anyone but ourselves. We dream about doing what we want without a thought about anything else. So why don’t we make sure to take time to do these things. They help us to recharge our batteries and keep us sane so what is stopping us?. Guilt like we talked about in the last post but also this sense of responsibility to others. Of course we have an obligation to others, to our kids, to our families to our clients and customers but what about our responsibility to ourselves. Many years ago when my kids were...
