When is it time for Mompreneurs to step back and reevaluate?

From my own experience, I found that whenever I wasn’t listening to my body, mind & spirit and doing too much ‘doing’ instead of ‘being’ that it was time to step back and reevaluate what is most important as a mompreneur… to remind myself that my health and happiness must be a priority in order to recharge my energy so that I can give more of my best to myself, to my work and to my family. So to remember that it’s okay and in fact, self-less not selfish to take a break, to rest, to get more sleep, to meditate, go for a walk in nature, get some sunshine on your face or put a great tune on, and dance like nobody’s watching and just ‘be’. To be present and at the moment is the most powerful place to be, to get back into alignment, more focused on your mission, and back into your purpose. When we do this for ourselves, we are not only subconsciously teaching our kids how to be healthy & happy adults but also the next generations to come! How amazing is that?! We can change the world and help to solve the Global Mental Health Crisis if we just start by taking care of ourselves.

Can you give us advice for soul-led mompreneurs?

Being a mother and leading a business are both energetically, very masculine roles. Tack on managing the entire life of your family, and caring for your inner and outer-worlds, and you are in theory all-day-every-day predominantly vibing in the masculine. What this means is that you’re embodying the “Giver” and the “Doer” while in mommy-mode and running your business. And in some respects, BLESS YES, this is all great—you’re a rockstar supermom who can and will make sh*t happen and DIY all the life things. But actually, your whole picture feels less balanced, less sustainable, and leads to overwhelm, exhaustion, and more disconnect from your own soul than you can imagine… or maybe you can because perhaps what I’m describing sounds just like your life! —been there, Momma! So from one mompreneur to another, allow me to plant a seed of channeled soul-led advice. The recipe for your abundant success (in all the professional and personal endeavors you are called to pursue), and the medicine you MUST weave into the flow of your daily life, can always be found inside the pause.  

  • The intentional slowdown.
  • The witnessing of space between your inhale and exhale.
  • The release of control, force, and push… (i.e. fear).

  In this space, you’re actively witnessing your whole being, your consciousness, your soul. Thriving in all your life roles for the long haul and truly finding fulfillment within, means you don’t skip the pause.  Prioritize ways to feel connected to your soul at all times.Your soul leads you in all ways, always. When you feel overwhelm, that’s your sign to go inward. Breathe.  Allow your soul to lead: when you ask for help so you can take a break, when you disconnect from all devices and devote solely to YOU or your family, when you go on retreat, when you hustle and pull all-nighters, when you take the four hour spa day, etc.  When you soften and let go you alchemize the imbalanced masculine and feminine, and align exactly with the highest frequency of your Being. Trust that all is constantly unfolding in your favor and according to Divine Order. You are not behind and you cannot mess up. You are the shapeshifting, self-healing, soul-led leader, healing the heart of humanity through expressing your unique gifts and message.  And so it IS.

How can women get their identity back as a businesswoman after they join motherhood? 

Some women love spending time with their children day in and day out. They have no intention to go back to work or a business and if they’re in the position they can stay at home that’s absolutely ok.  Others love their kids too but spending 24/7 for many years to come is just not working – for the kids and for the mums. And the thing is that they are ashamed to admit it. They’re afraid to be judged (what kind of mother am I?), so they stay quiet. Feeling that there’s something wrong with them. Why do I miss my old life, work, and business when I have this precious baby in my arms, right? Let me tell you this. There’s nothing wrong with you and you don’t need fixing. 

  • You have the right to feel like doing other things and still be a great mother. 
  • You have the right to enjoy your hobby, have ME time, doing the things that make your heart sing. 
  • You have the right to see your girlfriends, go on a date with your partner, and have adult-only conversations. 
  • You have the right to run and grow your business, learn new things, and serve your clients without feeling remorse.

“You can’t pour from an empty cup”.  If you don’t look after your needs first, sooner or later you’ll start feeling resentment toward the ones around you.  Here are a few tips on how to make it possible: 

  1. Say out loud how you really feel, don’t hold it inside. You’ll be shocked how many women feel the same way but are afraid to say it. 
  2. Ask for help. People around you are happy to help but if you don’t ask the answer is always no. We want to pretend we have it all under control, so people think we really do
  3. Make it work. If your career or business is important to you, you can make it work. Talk to people, have a rota with your family, and explore different ways how to make it possible.
  4. Give yourself permission to enjoy running your business while being a mother – this is what mompreneurs do

How can Mompreneurs create a healthy work/life balance?

Wikipedia defines a Mompreneur as “a female business owner who actively balances the roles of mother and of an entrepreneur.” But is balance even attainable? There has been much debate surrounding work-life balance versus work-life blend, fusion, or integration. I myself have struggled with accepting the term work-life balance as if gives the impression that we are required to give equal amounts of our time to our work and our personal lives. The reality is, on any given day there are multiple competing priorities, and we are tasked with deciding which priority takes first place today. Sometimes the scale tips in favor of our business or work, other times it tips in favor of our families. As a Mompreneur, I have found that working smart involves more than just being organized and mapping out plans. It also means teaching my children to be self-sufficient without them even recognizing it is a lesson. My son Kayden is the youngest of four and the only boy. At nine years old, he can make himself breakfast, pack his own lunch and pretty much get himself ready for school without much supervision. This is because I made cooking together a family activity. He now enjoys scrambling his own eggs, making sandwiches for lunch, and helping cook dinner, especially rolling meatballs for his favorite, homemade spaghetti and meatballs. The time invested in teaching him to do these things early now allows me to be fully present, not multitasking on mom duties while trying to listen and enjoy time with them. These little tweaks give us more time to enjoy fun activities together. What has also worked well for me is using my not-so-busy times to do things together so that when I am busy, I don’t have mom guilt and they understand. On days when I have no afternoon meetings, my school run includes stopping for ice cream and sitting together to discuss how their day was before we head home.

What advice would you give a Mompreneur looking for supernatural success? 

It is extremely important to find a balance in being a mother and an Entrepreneur. With both being full-time jobs, that can be very hard to do. I don’t care what the song says, you can not be a “Super Woman” without support.  You need support from people in both areas. Stop trying to do it all by yourself. It is not a sign of weakness to say I need help!   Supernatural Success is applying God’s Super on your Natural. That sometimes comes in the form of another person. Acknowledge your limitations and enlist the assistance of someone who is stronger in those areas.

How does being an overnight mum lead to becoming a Mompreneur?

Well, it’s 12 years since the day I became an overnight mum! On 23rd Dec 2010, my life changed forever in ways I could never have imagined! We had a baby girl placed in our hands that day. We had no idea when we woke up that morning that by the end of the day we would be parents to our miracle baby.  That is how life can change in an instant. I became a mother in an instant. My view of the world changed in an instant. Ultimately, what brought me into entrepreneurship was my amazing daughters who opened my eyes as to what is not working in this world. It made me realise my responsibility to create a more sustainable future for life on Earth for my children and all future generations.  It still took me a few years and a few more life experiences to discover but this was the starting point. I wanted to be a role model to my daughters and show them how to create their own happiness! I re-designed my life and am now creating a more fulfilling life. I am now constantly re-designing what I discover is not working for me! We can re-design anything in our lives if we give ourselves permission to explore! Sending you all love & courage!

What advice would you give Mompreneurs who’re in the corporate world looking for a change?

If you’re a mompreneur who’s still hanging on to your 9-5 and you’re looking for a change, start by thinking about how you WOULD LOVE to spend your days. From there, you can create the perfect work/life balance. Ask yourself questions like:

  • Will I wake up and eat breakfast with my children?
  • Will I walk my school-aged children to the bus stop? Take them to school?
  • What kind of childcare will I have?
  • Will we venture to the park?
  • How long will I spend on my business daily? 
  • What are my financial goals?
  • Will I have a day off during the week? 
  • How will I spend my weekends? 

You shouldn’t have to choose between motherhood and work. Sometimes the corporate landscape can force us to feel like it’s one or the other. The possibilities are endless and you have the power to design a life you love while raising and empowering your children.

How can Mompreneurs break the imposter syndrome cycle?

I personally don’t think that we can ever fully break the imposter syndrome cycle completely because I truly believe that life is all about growth and expansion and with that, there will always be a different challenge for us to overcome. As we grow and evolve we will be challenged to overcome and peel a different layer of ourselves that we have not yet peeled and as we do that, our trauma stories and beliefs will rise up to be processed, transmuted, and released. The process of going inward will allow us to go deeper with ourselves and this will create a new version of us that will feel empowered and ready to tackle whatever situation might be making us feel as though we are an imposter which simply translates to us not feeling like we are good enough. I just had one of these experiences myself when I attended my first zoom meeting with all of the other amazing and talented women who will be speaking at the Women Thrive Summit in March of 2023. I remember sitting there thinking to myself, who am I to be here? And then I remembered that life is not happening to me but that life is happening for me and that if something bigger than me brought me to this opportunity it was because I was more than ready to be an essential part of this summit just like everyone else that was there. Along my journey I’ve come to the realization that life is truly about the journey and about the person that we become along the way, so whenever I am feeling like an imposter I ask myself these empowering questions;

  • What must I believe to be true in order to feel this way?
  • Does this have to be true?
  • Does this have to truly be moving forward?

I ask myself these questions with an open mind and an open heart and with a lot of love and compassion which means that I don’t judge or criticize whatever might come up, I simply observe it by allowing myself to feel the sensations in my body and then I place one hand over my heart and one over my belly and I nurture myself by telling myself the complete opposite of whatever believe came up for me during the reflection exercise above. For example, if the belief that came up for me was that I was not good enough, I will tell myself, that I am good enough, and then I close my eyes and envision a younger version of me and I look her in the eyes and tell her that she is safe and loved and that I am proud of her. Coping with imposter syndrome requires and great sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance and a whole lot of unconditional love and compassion not only for ourselves but the younger version of us that created the beliefs and stories that are making us feel like we are not good enough.

The reality is, on any given day there are multiple competing priorities, and we are tasked with deciding which priority takes first place today. Sometimes the scale tips in favor of our business or work, other times it tips in favor of our families. As a Mompreneur, I have found that working smart involves more than just being organized and mapping out plans. It also means teaching my children to be self-sufficient without them even recognizing it is a lesson. My son Kayden is the youngest of four and the only boy. At nine years old, he can make himself breakfast, pack his own lunch and pretty much get himself ready for school without much supervision. This is because I made cooking together a family activity. He now enjoys scrambling his own eggs, making sandwiches for lunch, and helping cook dinner, especially rolling meatballs for his favorite, homemade spaghetti and meatballs. The time invested in teaching him to do these things early now allows me to be fully present, not multitasking on mom duties while trying to listen and enjoy time with them. These little tweaks give us more time to enjoy fun activities together. What has also worked well for me is using my not-so-busy times to do things together so that when I am busy, I don’t have mom guilt and they understand. On days when I have no afternoon meetings, my school run includes stopping for ice cream and sitting together to discuss how their day was before we head home.

How can women get their identity back as a businesswoman after they join motherhood? 

Some women love spending time with their children day in and day out. They have no intention to go back to work or a business and if they’re in the position they can stay at home that’s absolutely ok.  Others love their kids too but spending 24/7 for many years to come is just not working – for the kids and for the mums. And the thing is that they are ashamed to admit it. They’re afraid to be judged (what kind of mother am I?), so they stay quiet. Feeling that there’s something wrong with them. Why do I miss my old life, work, and business when I have this precious baby in my arms, right? Let me tell you this. There’s nothing wrong with you and you don’t need fixing. 

  • You have the right to feel like doing other things and still be a great mother. 
  • You have the right to enjoy your hobby, have ME time, doing the things that make your heart sing. 
  • You have the right to see your girlfriends, go on a date with your partner, and have adult-only conversations. 
  • You have the right to run and grow your business, learn new things, and serve your clients without feeling remorse.

“You can’t pour from an empty cup”.  If you don’t look after your needs first, sooner or later you’ll start feeling resentment toward the ones around you.  Here are a few tips on how to make it possible: 

  1. Say out loud how you really feel, don’t hold it inside. You’ll be shocked how many women feel the same way but are afraid to say it. 
  2. Ask for help. People around you are happy to help but if you don’t ask the answer is always no. We want to pretend we have it all under control, so people think we really do
  3. Make it work. If your career or business is important to you, you can make it work. Talk to people, have a rota with your family, and explore different ways how to make it possible.
  4. Give yourself permission to enjoy running your business while being a mother – this is what mompreneurs do
