Motherhood is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and if you’re a mama too I’m sure you can relate. Being a mama can overflow my heart with love and bring me down to my knees all in the same day.
When a computer stops working, things can quickly take a nightmarish turn. I've been there before and it is not pretty. The heart attack you get when you think your computer is gone and you've lost all your work is just not worth it.
When it comes to blogging (and social media for that matter), you don’t always have to reinvent the wheel. Instead of pushing to write a new post every day or every week, follow this rule so your content gains more exposure over time with less work on your part.
The hardest thing about making it in the business world is that you start off as an underdog. There are already so many established businesses in every industry that it can be hard for small companies to make an impact on the market.
You hear all this talk about less work and more life. About how we should be resting more so that we can serve better when we are working. We know it's true, but is usually one of those easier said than done things.
When I wrote a post about how I schedule my work week and how I get it all done as a stay at home mom of a toddler and business owner of a growing, thriving business, the response was overwhelming. I quickly realized how many of you needed guidance for creating your own schedule and finding balance between work and life. I realized that we all want a glimpse of how others are making it work so we can better structure our own lives.

We all know how easy it can be to let the Christmas season fly by like the rest of them without taking time to focus on what matters and spend it intentionally. In the past I have been guilty of this, but recently I am more determined than ever to bring purpose to every part of my life...
Have you ever taken a planned, extended break from your business? I’m talking about more than just a weekend. It may sound crazy and seem impossible but I believe that it is not only important but doable, every year.
The process of designing and building a home has taught me so much about contentment, humbleness, and making decisions. I never imagined we would be so indecisive through this process, but we have gone...
Somewhere along the way, my business became a full-time gig. It was always supposed to be something I did when I had time, but when things grew quickly, I found myself managing it as a full-time business. I consider myself extremely blessed to have the success that I’ve had, but at the same time I know my focus needs to be with my kids first. I love being an entrepreneur and although it's not something I saw coming in my life, I couldn't imagine my life without it.
