As a business owner, you are given lots and lots of advice--some good and some not. However, I am going to look at the positive side today in hopes of giving YOU some of the best tips I have gathered in my 12 years of work. Specifically, I outline the importance of becoming the status quo in your industry, staying true to your mission and vision, creating a business that others regard in the highest sense, hiring out the details so everyone can use their strengths, and lastly making sure the kids are given the appropriate attention to feel loved.  These five things, in my opinion, are the reasons Rebekah Scott Designs has been so successful.  Your business can be as well!   Join me today to learn more!

Taking a new spin on our interviews this week, I feel so encouraged share this powerful episode on happiness with Mike Ferry.  Mike Ferry is a father of four, a veteran middle school teacher, and also the author of Teaching Happiness and Innovation. His book’s vision is helping children develop habits of happiness and innovation.  During the episode we both share our philosophies of happiness and gratitude and how those concepts help to promote success.  The ideas we discuss in this podcast can easily be applied to your children’s lives but also to your own.  As Mike would say, it is never too late to develop creativity and grow your happiness!

As moms, we tend to put our husbands and children first.  We work and work so hard that we don’t realize what we are missing, we don’t notice why we are so off…Then, the lightbulb flashes and the thought occurs that our needs have been put on the back burner. However, most of us don’t take that light bulb moment and ACT on it.  Instead we think to ourselves, “I just don’t have time for hobbies right now.”  This couldn’t be farther from the truth! Stacy Curtis reminds us this week that our passions are what energize and lift us from the path of burnout. Using her passion of writing as a source of income and creative outlet, Stacy shares in this episode how she remains organized while still making time for her corporate job and family.

This week on “The Encourager” I focus in on expounding my priorities.  Being a servant of God, a wife to Nicholas, a mother of four, and owner and designer of Rebekah Scott Designs are the key components of me that guide my life. Everyone has their own priorities; but sometimes they can be hard to identify. One helpful tip (that I explain during the podcast) for pinpointing your priorities are listing off your deal breakers.  We have to be able to narrow down deal breakers so that we can clearly see our priorities. I hope today’s episode can help kick-start your priority list or fine tune the preexisting one!

Joining us on "The Encourager" this week is the resourceful Tiffny Hagan. An expert in virtual office assistance, Tiffny shares her story and wisdom about organization and dealing with pesky paperwork.  Today's ever-present technology can certainly enhance productivity, however, many of us (myself included) get too wrapped up in our devices.  We can lose the power of control and focus in our businesses, families, and relationships if we let technology consume our time. Tiffny's business, Virtual Office Advantage, is her way of helping businesses of all kinds organize and prioritize the influx information.  Listen this week to learn how to efficiently handle email, to create a hanging folder system in your home or business, and ultimately how to take back control!

 After receiving some much appreciated feedback from our listeners, I have noticed many of you wanted me to go even deeper into my morning routine and what it all entails; so I will do just that!  In previous episodes, I have explained the raw elements of my morning routine, but this episode I specifically explain the “why” behind each step of my mornings. I believe that because of my habitual routines, the efficiency of my family in the morning has increased immensely. I hope this provides the encouragement you need to making small changes in your routine—especially when you are bogged down by “pain points”.

Honesty is the best policy!  Humbly sharing my “bumps in the road”, I try to remain as transparent as possible in my journey as a mother and business owner.  This episode aims at reminding “The Encourager” listeners that my lifestyle is just like any other work at home mom.  From forgetting meetings to scheduling errors at the doctor’s office, I have done it all—while not be afraid to admit those mistakes!  For every misstep is a chance to learn and grow.  God continually humbles me each day and I hope to encourage women to reflect on those moments as well.

Sometimes we all need an uplifting, motivating message.  I believe this episode will do exactly that for you!  First, I talk about the popular phrase "an attitude of gratitude" which I alter quite a bit based on my perception of gratitude. Second, I dive into how I continually teach myself gratitude and put it into practice in my daily routine.  Lastly, I explain how the foundation of gratitude will allow you to be joyful.  Life is more fun when we have joy and are surrounded by people who emit joy.  Tune in to the episode to get a taste of the gratitude and joy I have to share!

In this episode, I emphasize the importance of leaving a legacy for your family.  We all want to create lasting memories for our children but they don't always have to be elaborate, beachfront vacations!  Some of the Scott family legacy builders include: journaling, scheduled memories, baking, mommy and daddy dates, and family values that I believe you can emulate in your household. I hope to encourage you to brainstorm with your spouse to find ways that work for your family to build that crucial legacy.
