Episode 380: How to Work Like a Mom w/Hannah Keeley
Moms have a lot on their plates, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. We all know that juggling children with a career can be tiring, but could there be another reason we’re feeling overwhelmed? What can we do to work around it all?
Join me on this episode as I talk with the star of reality show Hannah, Help Me! and founder of Mom Mastery University, Hannah Keeley. Hannah shares how she has made a career of teaching moms and tells us how to excel in all areas.
When moms learn to work with the way that their brain is wired, amazing things happen. -Hannah Keeley
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Stay present and be strategic (08:55- 10:51)
Zone-in on one thing at a time. When you’re with your kids, stay completely in tune with them. The same goes for business. In the time you allocate to work, focus fully on the tasks at hand. You need to adhere to separate business and family time parameters to make the most of both.
Moms work differently (13:50- 16:45)
Mom’s brains are wired differently from everyone else. The gift of multitasking sounds great until your inability to focus on singular tasks starts to affect your work results. You’re not alone in this; it’s something most, if not all, moms experience. The first step you need to take is acknowledging that motherhood changes the way you approach everything. Then you can start finding ways to work with it, not against it.
Work like a woman (17:32- 19:48)
Women have been conditioned to believe they need to put their womanhood aside to do well in business. That kind of thinking is not only inaccurate but can even lead to lower levels of productivity. Work with your womanhood in mind, and leverage it.
When you become a mom, a lot of things change, and your business is no exception. However, being a mom doesn’t mean you have to stop doing business— it just means you need to adapt. Stop pressuring yourself to work less like a mom or less like a woman. You’re wired differently, and that can have its own advantages.
Hannah Keeley is the founder of Mom Mastery University. With a background in behavioral therapy – and the experience of being a mom to seven kids – Hannah is passionate about teaching mothers how to excel in business and at home. She believes the key to unlocking amazing potential comes from moms realizing that they’re wired differently, and need to work accordingly.
