We struggle with simplicity.

When something in life or business seems too easy, too effortless, or even just manageable — our brain freaks out — and makes it complicated. We’re used to life feeling hard – so much so that it becomes our “normal”. We expect difficulty, so when we find ourselves experiencing something other than what feels challenging, our brain sees it as a problem.

There’s no doubt that motherhood and business (and life) have ups and downs that are unavoidable. But what is avoidable? The additional layers of pain and suffering we inflict on ourselves simply by overcomplicating.

The truth is, when we expect something to be hard, it will be hard. When we open ourselves up to the possibility that something could be easier, our perspective shifts and our minds open to a different way of thinking. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

• Where you’re overcomplicating your life without even realizing it

• Why you have a natural tendency to make life harder than it has to be

• Why your brain sees ease and simplicity as a problem

• The one question you can ask to invite ease into your life

This is the podcast for moms called to business as creative entrepreneurs and coaches. Through mindset and strategy, I help you leverage your faith and your beliefs to get out of your own way so that you simplify, focus and build a business that serves you, your family and your clients well – a business run with integrity that creates both income and impact. Around here, we go beyond the surface and dive deep into what matters most. We talk about mindset, faith, motherhood, money, marketing, messaging and more. So much of why you were called to business is because of who you’re becoming along the way. As your coach, my job is to help you grow your business. My mission is to help you grow as a person.
