Trends Don’t Make You Bank

Trends Don’t Make You Bank

“Follow the trends.”
“This is trending right now.”
“Have you seen the new trend?”

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve seen or heard this phrase in my feed…

Trends can be helpful for engagement, sure. Of course. There’s a reason it’s a trend in the first place. 

However, trends don’t make you bank. Here’s what does…

You need to focus on yourself, your business, and your message first and foremost.

If the trend fits, then by alllllll means, try it on for size.

But if you’re just participating to participate and say you hopped on that train, then it may not be worth it.

You want to draw in your ideal clients, and not every trend will align with that picture. That’s okay. 

Don’t worry. I assure you that another trend will come along, and perhaps the new one will be right up your ideal client’s alley.

  • If it fits your values, your business, and what you already share, then go for it.
  • If you want to try it out, I’m not here to stop you.
  • If it seems like fun, sure, infuse a little of that in there!

What I am saying is that you shouldn’t just do it because everyone else is doing it. Then, that would simply be a distraction – and, whew, do we have enough of that going on in this digital landscape.

What you DO want to do is make your own WAVE…

  • Share your WEALTH of knowledge.
  • Remain AUTHENTIC for your audience.
  • Layout your VALUES so you can stick to them.
  • Find what you ENJOY and keep doing that.

The Thing That Will ACTUALLY Help You Grow Your Business this Year

The Thing That Will ACTUALLY Help You Grow Your Business this Year

Affiliate - When it's Time to Add a Team Member

We all seek answers; here is the one thing that will ACTUALLY help you grow your business this year…

You have to take the good with the bad, right?

To an extent. You also, at one point or another, need to grieve and release the bad experiences you have in business.

We are driven by our experiences, and if we don’t process them, they can begin to seep into the decisions we make – even if we don’t realize it’s happening.

Each investment is a risk.

It can be a calculated risk if you weigh the option of staying where you are against if you take that leap and find out if it works or if you need to adjust.

Not every investment will pay off, and sometimes it’ll pay off in a way you didn’t expect.

But if your bad experiences are preventing you from moving forward, then you’re sabotaging yourself and holding yourself back from possibilities.

Why? Why do that yourself, your business, and the clients you have yet to help!?

You shouldn’t! That’s exactly why I make space for addressing these bad experiences and self-sabotaging in the Mom Elevated Society.

A safe space to do the REAL TALK so that you can feel FREE to grow from a place of alignment and truth.

Let me tell you now, if I didn’t grieve and release the bad experiences I’ve had (sometimes numerous times with certain circumstances), I wouldn’t still be here today. 

But I’m tenacious. I also believe in what I’m doing and love helping others in a way that allows me to be there for my children and still contribute to the household (and feels fulfilling to me).

You can grow your business this year; I KNOW it. I’m rooting for you!

The Mompreneur Checklist: 5 Must-Have Items

The Mompreneur Checklist: 5 Must-Have Items

Affiliate - When it's Time to Add a Team Member

I’ve not met many moms or business owners who don’t like a good list. A checkable one is the icing on the cake.

Let me share with you the mompreneur checklist: 5 must-have items, according to yours truly, that I’ve found over the last decade of juggling a business and motherhood.

1) Planner

Be it digital or paper (I love me some paper planners), this has been like the heart of everything for me. Organizing pieces, reminding me of things I’d otherwise forget, and helping me move things along more efficiently.

2) Village

Whatever support system you surround yourself with, make sure it’s a positive influence. Everyone needs some sort of guidance, lifting, and community. The beauty is you get to build your village as you see fit.

3) Routines

Even a loose schedule can be extremely helpful. It allows your kids to understand your availability and you to know different windows for your business. Shifts will need to be made, but adjusting will get easier and easier.

4) FUN

In terms of business items (pretty pens, affirmation cards, colorful sticky notes, or a planner with motivational sayings) or personal and family accessories. If you like shirts with patterns or colors or sparkles, go for it! Allowing yourself to find enjoyment in all areas of your life will lead to better results. No one said business (or motherhood) had to be boring or dull!

5) GRACE

Each day requires some grace as you learn and grow along with your children (and your business). Allow those missteps, reflections, and beautiful memories that make you human to increase the bond and connection between you all. Journal if you like, meditate if it’s on your heart, and tap into tools like the Gift Yourself GRACE program when needed.

You CAN be a great mom and a BOSS business owner. And you’re not alone while you traverse it all. Which one stands out the most to you today?

To help you navigate business growth YOUR WAY, the Your Steady Ground Masterclass leads you with videos and workbooks.

Making Motherhood Easier

Making Motherhood Easier

Affiliate - When it's Time to Add a Team Member

So many lessons to learn along the mompreneur journey. Most of the time, we are on a journey to make motherhood easier. 

But it’s often undoing a lot of what we put in place to protect ourselves along the way.

Walls. 

We put them up consciously or even subconsciously after experiences.

Sometimes you can pinpoint the exact moment when you locked up a part of yourself like Fort Knox. 

My three kids have taught me that it’s safe to open up parts of us we once closed off.

I’m a pretty logical person (hello, Virgo), and so is my son. So, if we can make sense of something, we’re pretty good to go.

That means we can be stubborn and less of the touchy-feely emotional side of things. I also don’t do crying much because I remember being called a crybaby once when I was little and because I experienced so much loss in my elementary years, I just feel like I closed off that part of myself, and “it’s just part of life.” 

While my son is logical, he’s still a human and tends to feel those logical thoughts very deeply.

Then, the girls came along. The older Tavie, the youngest, gets, the heavier the “big emotions” get. But Oriana definitely gave me a run for my money as she wears her heart on her sleeve and yet is one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. 

I’ve never thought of emotions as weak, but she gave me a new perspective on just HOW strong someone who is so in tune with each feeling can be.

  • Treyton taught me that logical doesn’t mean unemotional but that it can be difficult and confusing trying to understand those feelings and how to get through them.
  • Oriana taught me that you can let strength leak out of your eyes and still be such a sweet, caring, unwavering soul.
  • Octavia is teaching me that you can be a caretaker and still know EXACTLY what you want for yourself, and we’re all still learning how to not let those big emotions take over situations.

Honestly, I find that they not only broke down my walls but they found secret gardens I didn’t know were inside me, waiting to grow and be brought to life.

Thanks to my children, I am able to bring all of that into my business which, as far as I’m concerned, makes me a better leader for my team and creative partner for my clients.

The #1 Q I Ask My Kids to Make Mothering Easier

The #1 Q I Ask My Kids to Make Mothering Easier

Affiliate - When it's Time to Add a Team Member

Let me share with you the #1 Q I ask my kids to make mothering easier.

I used to assume that having a background in childcare, having been a nanny, and working around kids most of my life meant that I would know how to take care of my kiddos no matter what surfaced.

Talk about naive. Whew. I had no clue, huh?

Granted, it definitely means I had an idea of what to expect, but I still mostly had a daily reprieve back then.

One important lesson I’ve learned as a mom is that sometimes our kids need us to ask, “What do you need?”

I don’t always know right away.

My middle daughter is quite a beautifully emotion-led girl and happens to be quite the opposite of how I think and react. There are times I find myself at a bit of a loss with how to handle her responses to situations. My nature tells me to walk away, this is uncomfortable, she probably wants to be left alone. We all know what they say about assuming, so I started asking, “What do you need from me?” 

She’s a bright, capable little human and usually tells me something like a hug or some sort of comfort, but it works better for us because I’m not left like a deer in headlights or telling her to suck it up, buttercup and get over it, but I’m letting her be who she is while offering her whatever it is that I may be able to during her moments. 

Being a business-owning driven mom has its difficulties, but allowing them to navigate me so I can guide them to the best of my ability makes it allllll worth it.

I learn more through them for both business and life than I think I’ve learned over the course of the entire rest of my life before them.

I put together these 5 Steps to Managing a Business AND Kids learned along my journey just for you: https://momelevated.ck.page/managing-a-business-and-kids-tips

Sometimes I Lose My Patience

Sometimes I Lose My Patience

Affiliate - When it's Time to Add a Team Member

Imma start by saying I’m a pretty patient person. And try really hard to be understanding. 

But kids coming at you from three different directions with three different personalities and knowing which buttons to press added to the daily stresses sometimes get the best of me.

I have all the tools to keep my cool, and still sometimes I lose my patience.

We do better, we try harder, and we watch for the triggers… but life also happens.

So, I apologize, reflect, and let them know I love them, and sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the things. 

You know what? When they lose it, they know that while we all know it’s unacceptable behavior, it happens, it’s safe, and we will talk about how we might help them not get to that level next time. 

Mommy makes mistakes and is learning just as they are too. 

My youngest had a fit of epic proportions the other night because sister used the charger she wanted, and it was her fault her kindle was going to die because she didn’t like the color of the other charger and mommy said she chose not to plug it in so now it’s mommy’s fault too and she doesn’t like this family anymore and, and, and… 

When I told her I love her, she screamed No, No, No because I was not participating in her anger the way she expected. Being met with love and understanding was NOT helping her maintain her frustration.

And yet, we moved forward, she showered and proceeded to give hugs to everyone and say how much she loves us and was sorry for her behavior. She also ended up plugging her kindle into the pink charger, but that’s not the point.

Being able to make mistakes, learn from them, be guided through them, and not be shamed for going through the experience is wonderful. 

The same could be said for business. We make mistakes, we learn from them, we find guidance to get through some of them, and we should not be shamed for going through the experience.
