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.

Nobody has it all figured out

Nobody has it all figured out

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

Scrolling through and reading posts from people you follow can sometimes make it seem like others have figured out some “secret” to business success.

Here’s my little secret: Nobody has it figured out.

No matter how put together they seem, how successful they appear, or how confident they sound… they’re working on something, they’re trying something new, they’re doubting a decision they made, or they’re wondering what could be better. 

When they say, “You should do this,” what they’re really saying is, “This is what worked for me – give it a go!” They’re simply sharing with you what they have had success with in case it may help.

If you already know it doesn’t work for your business, then that’s okay! It shouldn’t make you feel like you’re doing something wrong.

Different platforms mean there are different techniques to attract an audience and different ways to sell. I have tried SO many… SO many I probably can’t even count. 

I’ve been part of teams who have completely different methods. And each works for them.

Don’t be afraid to try.
Put yourself out there.
Find what works for you and your business.

Embrace when you don’t know, are learning, and gather data to keep growing.

What A CEO Mindset Is According to My Kids

What A CEO Mindset Is According to My Kids

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

As you move into business ownership, your mindset needs to shift to that of a CEO. What does that mean?? Here’s what a CEO Mindset is according to my kids…

I asked each of my three kids what it means to have a CEO mindset. Let’s see what they had to say…
My 9-year-old says, “You own your mindset. You own your own thoughts.”
My 5-year-old says, “You own a business. It would be pretty obnoxious.” Her sister clarified: “I get it, I get it. Sometimes you have too many thoughts, and then it gets obnoxious.”
My 13-year-old says, “You have to be smart.”
They’re young, and they get it. To a point. When you have to be smart all the time, own your own thoughts, and have so many thoughts that sometimes it gets obnoxious, you need to have ways to keep those thoughts from overwhelming you constantly.
Don’t just take my kids’ words for it, Peter Diamandis hit the nail on the head with this quote:Your mindset matters. It affects everything – from the business and investment decisions you make, to the way you raise your children, to your stress levels and overall well-being.

One Step You Should Take Today

One Step You Should Take Today

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

One step you should take today is to write out on a calendar or in a planner all of your personal and business commitments for the month. 

This includes:

🤓 Kids’ activities
🤓 Kids’ appointments
🤓 Your appointments
🤓 Significant other’s appointments
🤓 Scheduled calls
🤓 Client deadlines
🤓 Scheduled meetups
🤓 Events (lives, workshops, masterclasses)
🤓 School schedules

By taking the time (it never takes as long as you think it will) to do this, you instantly see where you may be filling up TOO much of your schedule, what you might’ve otherwise overlooked, or where you have availability (or space to enjoy).

I started by doing this weekly. It felt easier to me to write out my week than trying to tackle an entire month. Then, I tried a month and realized it wasn’t as daunting as I initially thought, and it really helped me accommodate other things or see when I could say yes or no to requests. 

From there, I got bold and moved into writing out an entire quarter. OooOoo-WEE! It allowed me to leave intentional spaces open for connection with my family, my friends, and myself.

Now, writing out the bones of a year sometimes takes less time than writing out my week used to take. Boy, does that make me giggle! 

Breaking it down into weeks still helps me juggle homeschooling, client tasks, and my own business elements into more manageable chunks, but that overall picture is the bee’s knees for dreaming, planning, and executing.

It may seem unnecessary or even a trivial step in the grand scheme of things, but getting those pieces out of your head into moveable items really helps you begin to visualize, create, and hone in on your overall goals much better.

 Give it a go, and let me know what you find as you do!

Keeping Old or Creating New Traditions

Keeping Old or Creating New Traditions

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

What’s your take: are you for keeping old or creating new traditions?

When thinking of traditions, immediately something passed through the ages pops into mind.

However, traditions have to start somewhere!

Whether you are carrying on traditions from generations in your family or your significant other’s or starting ones for your kids to continue, the important thing to remember is that the emotions tied to each tradition is what helps make it one that lasts.

Every time I make cookies for the neighborhood with my kiddos, I have flashbacks to the kitchen I grew up in and the neighbors I walked around and handed ours out to.

Each time I successfully get produce from my garden, my grandma’s “bless her little heart” is heard in my head.

When my kids are able to spend time with their cousins laughing and playing, I see the many moments I shared with my own cousins growing up creating that unbreakable bond. 

Traditions don’t need to be tied to a holiday (though they often are). They just need to create that connections to special memories that then get linked to NEW special memories so the cycle keeps turning.

What is a tradition you have in your family?

Remember, PAVE your way.

Merry Memory Making

Merry Memory Making

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

When we spend time with the ones we love during festive times, the merry memory making tops the list for the reason of the season.

We made some cards together for a friend’s kiddo who wanted to receive his own mail.

It didn’t take long, but it was fun, and we all sat together figuring out spelling, designs, and color combinations.

Baking and cooking together is a family favorite, as well as art projects whether they are regular everyday options or matching a holiday theme.

Whatever way you choose to spend that time together, just make sure you do. In little spurts or longer stretches. They all make a big impact and a difference.

Your favorites memories may be VASTLY different from your children’s favorite memories. So let them have plenty to choose from.

Also, remember that they don’t have to be expensive, elaborate, extravagant, or even anything monumentally out of the norm.

They just have to be meaningful.

Enjoy each other’s company even on the days that you drive each other up the wall… those are likely the days you’ll need it the most. <3

What are some ways you like to make memories with your kiddos — especially around the holidays??

Remember, PAVE your way.
