The Encourager with Rebekah Scott

Located on a farm in Valley Springs, South Dakota, Rebekah Scott’s studio keeps her rooted to her loves – both her purses and her four growing tots. By keeping her heart close to home, she’s been able to keep her home close to her heart. Rebekah’s team is a woven fabric of creative moms and women who desire to stay at home. Rebekah remains at the helm – designing purses, creating new accessories, and sewing bags, with little ones discovering near by. Rebekah’s entrepreneurial spirit flows naturally and contagiously from her heart. Rebekah organizes accountability groups for female entrepreneurs and shares inspirational videos to encourage women in their own desires. Toting a tot on one hip and a rocking purse on the other, Rebekah Scott is ready for life’s next project! Her latest adventure, The Encourager podcast, aims at encouraging other women, aspiring to create an income for their family while being an active parent in their children’s lives. Each episode will focus on the various aspects of Rebekah’s family and business life, how they coexist, how she stays sane, and how she finds joy in each day.

Many people who have their own business want to know how to deal with competition. I’m a competitive person and I think you must have a competitive edge to start a business because of the thrill and risk involved. This is a very big deal in the field of “makers” so here are my thoughts in regards to competition in business.

In this episode, I talk about the three things I do as a work at home mom (WAHM) that make my day go so much more smoothly! I block them into my schedule and plan around them and don’t interfere with them (just as I don’t interfere with THE Holy Trinity).

My “food” system is the fourth in the series of four systems that help me stay on track in my personal life and my business. Thinking about what you and your family are going to eat can take up a lot of mental bandwidth so I recommend having a plan and will share what that looks like for me and my family.

I have four systems that help me stay on track in my personal life and my business and my “family” system is the second in the series. Prioritizing my family over my business is so important to me. My “family” system involves values we instill in our children and six guidelines we follow as a family. I also touch on other factors like discipline, prayer and date night!

I have four systems that help me stay on track in my personal life and my business and the “me” system is the first in the series. 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.

FREEDOM! That’s what most people think of when they hear “work from home.” While that can be true, too much freedom can also cause us fear because there isn’t a boss giving us parameters and our workday isn’t a typical 8 to 5 schedule. Working from home doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Here are my top 3 secrets for simplifying working from home.

The word “wise” has been coming up a lot in my life lately and it has made me think about the wise choices I’ve made in my life and in my business. While I know wisdom comes from above, I wanted to share this with you so you could reflect on the wisdom in your own life.

I have four small children and I work at home so people always ask me, “How do you do it?” I had to learn how to focus with small children present in my work environment and learn to work WITH my kids all while being productive!

When it seems like you have a good rhythm to your work day, you might think “I may have time to take on more… should I do that?” Block out an hour or two to think on this idea and ask yourself some important questions. 

Mar 30, 2017

Anything that is a clever tip or trick to simplify things in your home or office is a “hack.” In my home, I’ve figured out in each room what would help me stay organized and accomplish more! These are simple things that don’t require you to spend a lot of money and can be both physical things or mental things.

I believe what you speak comes back to you so I try to be very particular about what words come out of my mouth and the tone in which I say things. When you speak, you are speaking things into existence so you must be careful about what you say!

Mar 20, 2017

I don’t normally think much about my age but I turned 35 this year, which seemed like a big deal! I was thinking “If I retire at 70, I’m halfway through my working life!” GAH! While I want to amp things up and get things done, I also want to take a breath and reflect on what I’ve learned during my time here on this earth.

Pairings mean two things that must go together. You can’t do one without the other. Pairings are important because it becomes automatic in your brain to put these things together so when you think of one, you automatically think of the other. Like bread and butter!

You’ve made your priority list and your key decisions… now it’s time to start blocking! Blocking means breaking your day into sections of time and dedicating those to specific tasks based on importance.

Feb 27, 2017

In order to grow your business, grow your family and prioritize what you are doing, ask yourself these key decisions to help gain clarity! Answering these questions will help you do your job that much better!

Priorities. You must know what your priorities are before you can make your key decisions! Write them down in order and post them so you can see them often!

When will you work? How many hours are doable in your stage of life? Write it down, set those hours, and commit to it.

Who are you going to work with? Who is going to help you? Do you need a nanny/babysitter? Do you need an assistant or marketing person?

Where will you work? You need a designated space for your stay-at-home job! What are the rules regarding your work and workspace? Decide what they are and let your family know.

What are your goals? Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly goals are SO important! Write them down and post them so you can see them!

What is your why? This is the ultimate goal of why you are doing what you are doing.

How will you grow your business?

Margin is the act of putting breaks in your life and your schedule to allow yourself time to sit and reflect, to absorb what you’ve created or accomplished. This is SO important, especially since we all have so many roles in our lives!

Why? Margin is important because it gives you time to step back and check out for a little bit. It helps us gain a new perspective. Margin will help you stop and refresh before starting back up again.

Where? It’s important to decide where you’re going to take time for margin. In the bathtub? On the back porch? At the park? Find a space you love that is relaxing!

When? Decide when you will take time for margin. What day? What time of day? Will you schedule margin daily? Weekly? Monthly? Start slow by scheduling margin once a month. Then once a week. Then daily!

How? Block this time out in your calendar. Set a reminder on your phone. Be purposeful!

Batching is the practice of arranging things in sets or groups in order to decrease distraction and increase productivity. Batching gives me freedom from choices! It helps me free up mental bandwidth to be present with my family. And it helps me be more creative!

Encouragers, thank you so much for your support and attentive listening toward “The Encourager” this past year.  I feel so fortunate and blessed to have learned so much along with you these last few months.  Thank you to my guests who have interviewed thus far as well!  My last episode for 2015 encapsulates the best practices that I worked on in my life and business.  Hopefully, you can either try one of these for yourself in the New Year or reflect upon your own practices to build unique practices for 2016.
