5 Signs That Your Fear Is Greater Than Your Desire to Be A Money Making Mother

The first book I ever read (ok, listened to, I’m all about audiobooks now I’m a mother) about money mindset poked me.

It made me properly uncomfortable.

I didn’t even finish it the first time.

And I definitely didn’t do the suggested homework.

But something kept me coming back to that book.

Something had been sparked inside me, a teeny tiny flicker of a flame.  A small flame of belief that maybe I could change my financial reality.  Maybe I didn’t always have to feel like there was never enough.

It took me quite some time to realise that my resistance to the concepts in the book, the reason I would feel a bit… well, ick… after listening to a chapter was because I was being forced to confront something.

I was being forced to confront the fact that I had been letting fear get in the way of my success in life.

I was being forced to confront the fact that I held limiting beliefs about money.

5 Ways You Could Be Using Automation NOW to Save Time in Your Business

Automation.

Are you a fan or does the word make you instantly assume it’s going to be hard and techy?  I find people are generally divided on this one.

Either way, if you are a mother and a business owner (which I’m guessing you are) then you need to make friends with automation.  

Automation is the mother business owner’s best friend.

The Truth About Getting Visible (and why it’s not what you think)

Ok so let’s dive straight in with what is holding you back from getting visible.  I can sum it up in a single word.

Fear.

How do I know?  Well, for starters I had that same fear of visibility when I was first starting out in my business.  And secondly, I come up against those same fears in my clients time and time again.

Is it time you set some new business boundaries so you can stop wasting time and start making more money?

Did you start your business in the hope to have a more flexible schedule and more time with your family?

Me too.

But maybe since starting your business you’ve become overwhelmed, squeezing work into any spare pocket of time at all hours of the day?

Or maybe you’re struggling to find enough time to dedicate to your business and are frustrated with how slow it is to get things up and running?

If you are feeling overwhelmed time-wise in your business, you’re unlikely to have the time or mental energy to think of new ways to generate income for your business.

How to Use SOPs to Scale for MORE Success

Maybe you already have SOPs in your business.  Or maybe you read that title and thought “I have no idea what a SOP is but I definitely would like to scale and create more success!”.

For those who didn’t spend 10 years in the corporate space like me (kind of jealous of you if you didn’t haha) it’s totally fine not to know.  So let me explain.

What on earth is a SOP anyway?

The busy Mama’s guide to social media scheduling for success (in spite of the FB changes)

We want to be successful, but we need to keep things simple, right ladies?

The last thing we want is to be over complicating things.

Realising you haven’t posted anything to your Facebook Biz Page in 5 days so desperately trying to think of something to post as you rush out the door for the school run and coming up blank… isn’t fun.

This is why, if you can get ahead of the game and make time in your week to batch some content and schedule it to go out.

 

Stop Reinventing the Wheel and Start Repurposing Your Content

How exactly is a busy mama entrepreneur like yourself supposed to create all this content, you could well be wondering.

You can’t spend the entire week creating content!  You’re lucky if you have a couple of hours a week for this stuff, right?

It’s no wonder then that the thought of content creation can get you down.

Lucky for you then, that one of my 3 key areas of expertise is SIMPLICITY.  I am allergic to difficult.  To unnecessarily complicated.

That’s why it is always my mission to find ways to make your life and business easier and simpler.  You want to spend the majority of your working hours in your zone of genius, doing the money-making activities.  And you want to spend ample time with your family, and – let’s be honest – some time for yourself would be good too, wouldn’t it?

Why NOW is the time to stop holding yourself back

Let me ask you something:

Are you holding yourself back?

Probably.

Is that a little presumptuous of me?  Maybe a little bit, but the thing is we ALL hold ourselves back from time to time.  I know I have many times.

The worst part is, we hold ourselves back from doing things which are in some way scary, yes, but which could make us SO HAPPY.
