Can I quote you on that? 

  • You can always be productive.
  • Every time you go to the bathroom, find something you can do in the in-between moments.
  • Figure out what you want to accomplish, make a checklist so you know what needs to happen next.
  • We have to stop thinking that our lives are run in the same way as other people who have successful businesses but don’t have little kids run their lives.
  • When you know what you want to accomplish, it is easy to write down and do the things you need to do to accomplish it.
  • We have to people of action. As moms, we’re people of action. You help your kids grow and thrive, you can do that for your business too.
  • Productive amazing Boss Moms make decisions. It isn’t always pretty, but we go for it and learn from our experience so we can execute it better next time.
  • You can’t move forward if you tell yourself that you can’t get things done in the in-between moments of your day.
  • We can create an environment for ourselves where we can thrive. In order to do that, you have to acknowledge what you can change and what you can’t change.

Action Steps: 

  1. Think about what is really important to you. What is going to move the needle forward in your business? Be Honest.
  2. After that, make a list of things that need to get done. This is the start of your plan.
  3. Now you’ve got a calling card of awesome. Tackle your tasks and make it happen.

I don’t want a bunch of amazing women and moms, beautiful creative Boss Moms feeling stagnant and like they can’t accomplish anything because they don’t have the time or the optimal environment to make it happen. I want you to feel like you’ve got the tools you need to succeed. You can create a thriving business and you owe it to yourself and family to do it. And to do it in a way that doesn’t feel overwhelming.

    Thank you Dana! You are great!
    I loved when you said we shoudn’t compare to other successful people who don’t have kids! I think I make this common mistake many times and that gets me thinking I am always a mess with my bussiness.
    So good to listen to you and feel supported ♡
