This summer, life as a mom and business owner looked different than it ever has before. To be honest, some life stuff happened that needed my time and attention, and that meant pulling back from my business – not completely, but significantly. Although it wasn’t a complete sabbatical, it was very much like one in a number of ways.

What I learned is that, because of how I’ve intentionally built my business over the last several years, I COULD take this sort-of summer sabbatical without everything falling apart. And I’m so grateful I did. I’m sharing why I did it, what it looked like to take this semi-break and what valuable lessons I learned through it.

If you dream of growing a business that allows you to put your life first, you don't want to miss this episode.

On this episode of BEYOND, you'll learn:

  • All the things I didn’t do this summer, and the few priorities that were non-negotiable

  • How many hours I worked each week

  • What led me to take this sort-of sabbatical (it wasn’t burnout or stress)

  • The challenges and grief surrounding my dad's Alzheimer's

  • A realization that may lead to some fun changes in my business

  • What designing invitations for my in-laws’ surprise anniversary showed me

  • 3 important lessons I learned from this “summer break” in entrepreneurship

My prayer is that this episode encourages you to know that a life and business that looks and feels different IS possible.
And it's possible for YOU.
If you're ready to continue the conversation beyond the podcast, if you are ready for the combination of life support and business strategy you need in navigating the highs and lows as a mom and entrepreneur, I want to invite you to apply for 1:1 coaching. Working with me privately is kind of like having a business therapist, marketing strategist and personal trainer for your brain all-in-one.
