Despite my best efforts, I found myself spinning, overwhelmed, scattered, stressed. I didn’t know where to turn.
I found the “simplicity” movement and lots of leaders who I respected, but I couldn’t find anyone who really drilled down into the simplicity and clarity space while still spinning the same kind of working mother plates that I was (not so gracefully) trying to keep from crashing to the floor. There were lots of single guys and homeschooling, homesteading moms, and I appreciated everything they offered, but my life and everyday existence was so, so very different from theirs.
I needed ideas, strategies, real-life processes at home and work to help me figure out what to do, what to keep, what to get rid of, how to manage my calendar and my home, and so much more. So I deep-dove into figuring all of that out, and now I love sharing that information with others to shortcut their paths to success.
I need to feel I’m making a difference, a positive difference, in someone’s life every day. I want to make someone’s career more meaningful, their home more peaceful, their relationship with their kids and partner healthier. I know the women who I want to hang out with feel the same way -- in large or small ways, they want to feel that they are making the world (at least their corner of it) better.
They want to be good people. They want to do the right thing. They want to be seen as compassionate, authentic, people of integrity who made the world better for having been here.
I want to pour myself out in service to others and the impacts they are making in the world through their work, their families, the organizations they support, and the light they bring to the people around them. I don’t believe that we have to give up making a difference in the midst of the busyness of the rest of our lives. Quite the contrary - having an impact feeds our souls, and that makes everything else feel lighter, brighter, and more achievable.
I am a working mom with a great job and an opportunity through my coaching, speaking, and teaching to do the kind of passion work I love.
I want every woman to believe in herself, express her own needs and dreams, stop apologizing for who she is, the choices she made, and what she wants for herself and those around her.
I want to use everything I am, everything I’ve learned, and every spare moment of my days loving on and teaching other women that they have permission to quit trying to have it all, be it all, and do it all.
They can have what matters, do what matters, and be what matters to them -- and that is enough. That is more than enough.
Here for you, cheering for you, believing in you -- always,
