Q click here to find out more What made you decide to start your business?
AI woke up in the middle of the night with the idea for Mindful Mommy and the rest is history. Of course I have rebranded to The Mindful Family since that idea came in 8 years ago but my mission is really the same. To redefine what it means to be a good mom by inspiring mothers to make mindful living, self-care and FUN a daily habit.
Q pop over to these guys How do you balance motherhood with entrepreneurship?
AI don't. I actually believe that balance is bullshit. I choose to be fully present in my business which means that I am not present with my kids. I also choose to be fully present with my kids which means I can't be working on my business. It is more like a see-saw
Q you can look here What is the most important skill a mompreneur should develop (even if it’s not natural to them)?
A The most important skill a mompreneur should have is figuring out how to put blinders on to what everyone else is doing. I still have a hard time with this and at times find myself comparing myself to others. Then I remind myself that they are just a few steps ahead of me and everyone has their own journey.
AI am pretty strict when it comes to sleep. It is my number one priority. I also make time to meditate or practice mindfulness daily, move my body in a ways that feel good, take high quality supplements, and love experimenting with essential oils. I am pretty passionate about self-care because I don't think you can be the best mom or business owner without putting it first.
Q Do you have a support network? Is it important to find one?
AIs it important to find one? YES! I have many circles that I am in to rely on for support. I have mom friends, mompreneur friends, family friends. It takes time and work to cultivate the relationships but it is so worth it.
