Four Easy Ways For The New Mompreneur To Avoid Sabotaging Her Business
Hey, hey mama! You know the phrase, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”? Well...that may be true with some relationships, but it’s most definitely not true when it comes to your business.
I’ve been absent here on the blog since March. Part of that was intentional, part of it was...well...not…
The plan was to take a break from the blog for about 6 weeks to get recordings and interviews for the podcast batched and ready to go, and then get right back to blogging.
I can come up with reason after reason (eh-hem...excuse after excuse) as to why I didn’t go back to the blog when I intended, but none of it matters - what happened, happened...and now I’m here to help you get through some of those same situations so that you can build your business without as many self-imposed speed bumps and road blocks as I had.
I’ve done some legit soul searching and deep internal work recently to figure out the REAL reasons of why I let the blog slide. I mean, really...I’m a fucking writer. I’ve been a writer since I was 8 years old. Writing soothes me, it grounds me, it brings me back to center, and it honestly gets all these freaking ideas out of my head and into somewhere that I can continually work on them
And...I figured it out...at least I think I did…
So I wanted to take some time to explain what lead to me not touching the blog portion of my website for the last 6 months, but not before I get to helping you to NOT do the same thing.
Before we get too far into this whole thing, I want to thank you for spending some time here. It’s not easy for us to have time to ourselves, I mean...I, myself, have turned into a speed-pee’er because a mama can’t even get 60 seconds to pee in peace. So, the fact that you’re spending time to see how what I’m writing about can help you, is very much appreciated. Now, settle in and let’s get to it.
Are You Feeling Like You Want To Give Up, Mama
Have you ever had one of those days, weeks, months, where you’re just over it all? When you feel like giving up?
But then reality smacks you upside the head and reminds you that you’re a mom, a wife, an employee, a leader, a friend...and you can’t. You need to keep going.
You know this feeling and you don’t know how to fix it.

Turning Shit Off and Finally Being Present
Turning shit off and finally being present is a huge issue for working parents. Whether you work from home or you go to the office every day, it is really hard, sometimes, at 5 or 6 o’clock to get your brain out of work mode.
It's hard to not continue to think, on your drive home or while you're making dinner, about how you can solve that problem that came up this afternoon, or different ways that you can make a report be clearer or go faster, or even just making the workplace better in general.
We enjoy our jobs, and we take pride in what we do, so when we leave work with something that still needs to be done, something still hanging, we have a natural tendency to keep thinking about it, and keep trying to solve our problem long after we left the office.
