Mompreneur Tips By Age (0-12 months)

Let me say this first: I am no expert Mompreneur and in fact, I still have a lot to learn and a lot of growing to do. But, I’ve been doing it for a little over a year and I’ve definitely learned a few things. The first year is hard. I know. Or maybe you have a perfect baby and it’s easy. If that’s the case, there’s no reason for you to read this blog post. You are golden. For the rest of us, read on.

Four Ways to Prepare For a Productive Week On Sunday

I am a big fan of efficiency. I think through every decision when it comes to finding the most efficient route or way of doing something. Sometimes when we are driving somewhere and my husband takes a different route than expected, I get frustrated. I have already thought through the different scenarios and have found the most efficient way of driving, so it doesn’t make sense to go a different way! The good thing about marriage is that it makes you a better person and helps you let go of your controlling ways, amiright?!

2018 Goals

I love setting goals. I am a task-oriented person, so my sense of accomplishment often comes from checking things off a to-do list and being productive. This is great for being motivated, but it’s not so great when you have a newborn and all you wanna do is get things done when what you really should be doing is snuggling that babe. I’ve learned a lot in the last couple of months about letting go of being productive for the sake of feeling accomplished. Sometimes the most productive thing I can do is love on my sweet little one. Hold up, that was a major bunny trail.

How To Take Time Away From Your Business During The Holidays

The other day I was taking a shower and had the thought that I should take the month of January off. In all honesty, I didn’t really take a maternity leave and I’m starting to feel the effects of that. My husband split his paternity leave in half and will be taking three weeks off in January, and I thought “maybe I should too.” But then I convinced myself that taking time off would surely lead to my business starting off too slow at the beginning of the year.

Motherhood and Entrepreneurship

If you really knew me, you would know that I love structure. I thrive on it. I don’t like when plans get changed. I like knowing what to expect. I like waking up every morning knowing how the day will pan out. This worked really well for me before I had a baby and worked at home by myself. I didn’t have a boss to tell me what to do. I didn’t have co-workers who depended on me. I wasn’t required by law to take a lunch break. And I could work whenever and wherever I wanted. Work from the couch? Yep. Work at night and take the day off? You betcha.

What Motherhood Has Taught Me

As I write this, I am sitting on the couch as my husband and son nap together on the other couch. Knox will be 4 weeks tomorrow. It feels like it’s been forever. But it also feels like I blinked and now he is 4 weeks old. My life has completely changed in every single way since Knox arrived on July 17th, 2017. It’s been the best and hardest four weeks of my life. I never knew I could feel so many emotions all at once. I never knew I could survive with such little sleep. I never knew it would be so hard and amazing all at the same time.

Our Secret to Getting Sleep with a Newborn

It’s no secret to anyone: life with a newborn is tiring. And in my few weeks of having a newborn, I’ve learned, in new ways, how important sleep is. Before Knox arrived, I prayed for a baby that would sleep. And at this point, from what I know, God answered my prayers. However, there is definitely a secret weapon we discovered that has been a lifesaver for naps and our nighttime routine (please note: I use the word routine verrrry loosely here).
