Tell us a little bit about your family and your Boss Mom journey.
I’ve been married to my husband Jon for 9 years, and we have two daughters, Chloe (almost 7) and Mia (almost 4). We live in NC and love taking family beach vacations as often as possible. My Boss Mom journey officially started earlier this year when I began my own coaching business. It was a process though, of soul-searching for meaningful work and a flexible schedule that worked for my family. I was able to transition to part-time in my “day job” to give me margin to start a business, which is now growing so that can be my primary career. affiliate links present
What are some of your favorite go to meals when time is tight and dinner MUST get on the table?
Pizza (frozen or delivery), Chick-fil-a, Butter noodles (with parmesan for extra flair), parmesan chicken nuggets, or I can an SOS to my husband and he can whip up something amazing like Chicken Alfredo or risotto. He is the chef in our family. I cook to keep our family alive – he cooks for the joy of it. 🙂
Where do you go for inspiration?
The Boss Mom community, Psalms or Proverbs, my mom, my own head (with a pen, notebook, and glass of wine).
What are you currently reading or listening to (podcasts, books, blogs etc)?
What is one piece of business advice that you’d give to a mom just starting out?
Align yourself with other successful entrepreneurs — invest in yourself by getting a coach or mentor to guide and support you. Don’t go it alone.
What are some of your favorite quotes or words to live by?
“I would like to be remembered as someone who did the best she could with the talent she had.”J.K. Rowling
“Tell me, what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” – Mary Oliver
“I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
“And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” – Colossians 3:23
In one word, sum up your life as a Boss Mom. Amusing.
What are three core values of your business and how do those values relate to your motherhood?
Creativity, Faith, and Community.
- For Creativity, we have to be creative at how we solve problems, big and small. We have to approach things from new angles — this applies both in life and business.
- Faith — this is all about taking calculated risks — putting forth the effort and trusting the results will come.
- Community — in business and motherhood, we need each other – I believe in the virtuous circle of helping others who will then help someone else. And being open to receiving help as well.
