For When You Are Overwhelmed

 

It happens to all of us. We get overwhelmed. We get stuck. We don’t know what our next step is.

This is the place to work through this stuff.

I Love My Kids – But I Don’t Even Know Who I Am Anymore.

I Love My Kids – But I Don’t Even Know Who I Am Anymore.

My oldest son is four months away from being seventeen. He reminded me of that this morning. This is madness to me. How did the last seventeen years pass by so quickly? I vividly remember the day he was born. I was induced at 7am, but by 7pm, my baby was still in my...

A Love Letter to My Sister (and maybe to you too).

A Love Letter to My Sister (and maybe to you too).

When I was about 3 1/2, my mom did the worst thing she's ever done to me and brought home my baby sister. It took me about 16 years before I finally appreciated her, my sister I mean, and the only thing that caused it to happen was...

For When You Are Afraid

 

First off, Fear is a liar. 

Or at least most of the time it is. I mean sometimes fear is a real indicator of danger, so you probably need to learn how to distinguish. These posts will help with that. 

Becoming More of Yourself

Becoming More of Yourself

A voice in my head has been bugging me to make this video for DAYS. Another voice was telling me not to because... A ) Who is even going to watch it. B ) Why would anyone even care. C ) I don't have a "Pro" environment in which to do it. All of that is just BS. So I...

For When You Are Unsure

 

Being afraid is one thing. Being unsure is entirely another. Being immoble is even worse. These posts will help you work through your uncertainty. 

The Secret Weapon that Keeps My Business Running

The Secret Weapon that Keeps My Business Running

Truth be told, I hate the idea of a "routine". Just say that word, and I'm out. It's probably childish, but it's like a hardwired aversion. Freedom to change course in the midst of whatever I've got going on is paramount for me. When I go on trips, I won't even plan a...

Why Did I Start My Work from Home Business? Necessity.

Why Did I Start My Work from Home Business? Necessity.

If you've been here before, of you've known me for awhile, you will know the story about my debt. If this is your first time, I'll give you a condensed recap. In 2006, I was a wife and a mom to three kids. The kids were 3, 2 and 6 months old, and I had inexplicably...

Don’t tell me God doesn’t want moms to work.

Don’t tell me God doesn’t want moms to work.

I might be overreacting, but this kind of shizz is exactly why "Christians" turn other people off. From a blog entitled: What Social Media Doesn’t Tell You About Being a Work-At-Home Mom “You can have both,” they say. Work from home AND raise your babies. All you have...

When You Need to Be Inspired

 

We aren’t all on our A game all the time. Read these posts when you need a reminder of your power.

Money Shizz

 

If you haven’t read my book Mom vs Debt, you should grab a copy. But in the meantime, here are a few blogs that can get you started with all money stuff. 

Are Your Car Costs Holding You Back?

Are Your Car Costs Holding You Back?

A guest post by Giles Kirkland When it comes to being a parent, some costs are necessary, others are not. For most families, the car falls within the former. Whether it’s the daily school run, doing the shopping or the various other duties that ultimately arise, a...

What’s so wrong with living in debt anyway?

As someone who has quite a bit of experience with this - I can tell you that sometimes it feels like debt is just inevitable. You are always going to be behind anyway, so what's the point of getting out of it? It's super easy, especially when there are times that no...

I Paid off $64k in Debt – and it was NOT via Prostitution.

Were you aware the only plausible way for a woman to pay off an astronomical amount of debt is via prostitution? Yeah, I didn't either. But that's what someone actually said about me. I guess stripping isn't an option for moms, but turning tricks makes sense....

All the Mom Things

 

The good, the bad and the ugly. It’s all right here. 

The Number One Question People Always Ask Me.

The Number One Question People Always Ask Me.

Okay, so technically, the actual number one question people always ask me (after 14 years of running my own business and working from home) is, "How do you make yourself get out of bed and work?" The answer to that is, "How do you make yourself get out of bed every...
