Nothing says “love” like a business meeting with your spouse! HA! But seriously, Nick and I prioritize time once a month to talk about our calendars, budget, expectations, dreams, children, and more. With our busy lives, this meeting helps keep us on the same page and heading in the same direction.
Christmas is my favorite holiday! I love what it’s about, I love the spirit of it, I love the traditions of it… but it can be easy to get caught up in the customs but lose the meaning behind them.

I want to be seen as a leader rather than a boss because leaders are responsible for creating the culture or environment for their business and team members rather than just telling people what to do.

Welcome back Encouragers! I am back from taking a 4-week break from the podcast and I SO appreciate you guys giving me that time to rest, relax and practice what I preach by putting some margin into my life and schedule. Season 3 is going to be AMAZING! Listen in as I fill you in on what’s been going on!
You all know that January is my favorite month but September and October are really close seconds! I LOVE the change-over to fall and when the kids start school again, I feel like there is a renewed sense of purpose and I get a fresh wave of motivation to finish the year strong with my goals!
I took the last month off from the podcast and strategically chose episodes to air during the break that speak to the concept of rest and self care. In this episode from earlier in the season, I talk about shutting down at night and how it can be one of the most difficult things to do as we handle all the roles in our lives, especially if you work from home. How do we fully turn off our brain so we can close our eyes and get some rest at night? Sometimes it happens out of exhaustion or because we want to check out and not face our “to do” list. In this podcast I talk about what I do to fully (and properly) shut down at night.
Building a business and raising a family is difficult and can easily lead to burnout. You need discipline, motivation and a superwoman cape to avoid it completely! Burnout has happened to me in the past and to help prevent it from happening again, I'm taking a month off from the podcast. Burnout is one of the reasons why I’ve developed many of my systems and is one of the motivations behind why I wrote my book, “Equipped to Execute.” In this episode, I’ll cover my tips and tricks for avoiding burnout.
I have four systems that help me stay on track in my personal life and my business and the "me" system is the first and probably most important. As I'm taking a month off from the podcast, I encourage you to listen to this episode from earlier in the seriesand develop your own "me" system. Having a “me” system is important because it fills me up and helps me give my best to God, my family and my business. My “me” system involves self-love, confidence, beauty (inside and outside), God and Gratitude.
Margin is the act of taking a break to allow yourself time to sit, reflect, and absorb what you’ve created or accomplished. I'm practicing what I preach by taking a month off from the podcast so please listen to this episode on the subject from earlier in the season!
