Children do not destroy futures, they enhance them....
Your children are not an excuse, they are motivation.
An alarming number of moms cite parenthood as the reason they are unable to achieve “something”.
Whether it be an advanced degree, starting their own business, traveling, or simply living the life they want.
IF there is a single excuse in the world worth having, it’s parenthood.
I get that.
This is a full-time job, and who on earth can handle more than that?
I’ve been where you are, I’ve been in ALL of these scenarios.
Let me tell you, it wasn’t easy.
But now days, things run pretty smooth.
When I began my blog six months ago I knew I wanted to help moms.
I just didn’t know which moms.
It took me far too long to realize where my expertise lies.
Who Am I?
I’m a CLC and can talk for hours about breastfeeding.
I’m an attachment parent who adores the closeness that it brings.
I cloth diaper. I’m going green. I have a newborn. I’ve struggled with infertility. I won’t go on...
because none of these things define me.
What I am above all is a busy mom, and I've learned how to navigate some of the most stressful transitions in life, with my kids in tow.
Although I have been, I am not a busy stay-at-home mom or a busy working mom.
I am a busy mom who works from home.
More specifically I am a graduate student AND entrepreneur.
I know how to navigate the challenges that we Grad Moms face.
and I know the struggles of entrepreneurship.
I know that kids are an excuse. An excuse to keep you from going to or completing graduate school. An excuse from keeping you from launching your own business.
“I’ll do it when the kids are older.”
No, you probably won’t.
Some people do, but as your kids grow you get new excuses. Now you’re:
“too old to go back to school” or "not interested".
You will always have an excuse.
There is always a reason not to.
Your kids aren’t that…they are the reason that you should.
There should be no mom guilt in chasing YOUR dreams.
You can do this, and still rock parenthood. I’m here to show you how.
As you may have noticed TGI Naptime is going through some changes, to better fit me and the value that I can bring you.
If there is one thing that I am an EXPERT at, it’s balancing life, school, and business.
2017 will be transformative.
This starts with a mom life assessment. To help you figure out where you are, where you're going, and what needs to change.
I can’t help you if you don’t know you.
Once we have that figured out, we’ll talk about self-care.
There is nothing I believe in more than the power of self-care and it’s importance in all of our lives.
You cannot be a good parent if you aren’t good to yourself.
Next, we will talk about the strategies that have helped me not survive Grad school but thrive with a consistent 4.0
All while building my business.
While there may be more specific posts, most strategies that I have used can easily be applied to either graduate school or business building. If you are like me and doing BOTH, you NEED these strategies.
I hope you find immense value in the content that lies ahead in 2017.
The year will also be sprinkled with lighter parenthood posts, essential product reviews, purpose finding, and Paid E-books and courses to help you take your mom life to the next level. I’ll share strategies you can apply, and pieces of my own journey.
You’ll get an honest look at my life, what works and what doesn’t, as well as:
My support on your journey, and the comfort that comes with knowing that even at your worst, you are not struggling alone.
Whether you are considering graduate school, a student, a mom who wants more, or a mompreneur…Welcome to Your Journey.
