Have you ever screamed at your kids, “GET IN THE CAR?”  If you are a parent and you answer no, you are actually an alien because we ALL have done this.  Parenting and growing your net worth is like trying to make your kids a sandwich while your manicure dries and every move you inspect whether you smudged them.  It’s just not that easy - but when you know how to speak to your children and assess their needs, it goes a ton better.  I have been implementing the principles of this episode since we talked and my relationship with my kids has improved greatly. I know yours will too:

What you will learn:

  • How your actions, words and thoughts model for your children what they should think and say

  • How to create abundance in your parenting immediately with mindset hacks

  • How to support a child’s creative flow

Episode 72: Starting a Business in Your 20s with Chiara Milford

Today you will meet Chiara Milford.  She shares her success story of starting a business at age 20 that has been successful for 10 years and how she is now scaling into the online space!  I love following her on Instagram for her tips on social media and her realness and accent if I am honest, lol.  She is a business owner of 10 years in event furniture hire and now Instagram Mentor. You can find her with her head down and bum up in her garden most days and on the weekend out on the road delivering some wedding furniture too!

When not working you can find her down at the dog park walking her fur baby, sitting in the sun with a cold beer, and a chicken parmy in our local beer garden or supporting the husbo at his local music gig.

She is mostly known for being a furniture supplier for weddings (she is still doing this but it’s a side hustle now!), for #buckingthetrends and for posting way too much about our fur baby.

The things she is most passionate about in life are making sure my little fam bam is happy and spending quality time together, educating small businesses about how to make the most out of instagram for business and providing exceptional customer service to my brides and industry pals. And lastly trying to finish her home renos which have been going on for like 5yrs! 😂 #nevergonnahappen

Episode 69: How I Made $1,500 on Facebook Marketplace in One Week

I am on a mission people. I AM DETERMINED TO LIVE A MORE SIMPLE LIFE. I am sick of all the shizzzzz around me all the time and the drawers full of crap and the kitchen full of gadgets I never use. I am sick of all the clothes in my closet I don’t wear and I am most of all sick OF. ALL. THE. TOYS. NO. ONE. PLAYS. WITH.

Like for reals. GET OUT OF MY HOUSE.

I am moving in 2 days and I am making sure none of that stuff is coming with. I decided to try my luck with Facebook Marketplace and I ended up making $1,500 in one week. And let me tell you this before you get any ideas. Most of my stuff is mediocre. It’s not like I am selling fancy stuff. In fact, the fancy stuff I am trying to sell isn’t selling. So if you are an average person, doing average living, you probably can make up to $1,500 or more just getting rid of stuff you aren’t using laying around your warehouse.

Here is why you want to listen though. Facebook Marketplace is hit or miss. There are some tricks you want to implement to make your item sell for more. After some trial and error I figured out some ways to increase your revenue and provide more value for the person buying. Enjoy this week’s episode.

Episode 68: How to Start a 501c3 and Restore Hope with Annette Houston

Today you will meet Annette Houston, the executive director of Ms. Houston’s Caring Hands Inc.,  an organization she started herself.  What is so amazing about this compared to anyone else who has started an organization is she filed for 501c3 with little to no experience on how to and figure it all out herself.

She started  this organization because of her past experience as being in foster care, being a mom at 15, and coming from a abusive home . She was diagnosed with chronic depression but never gave up on her dream of giving back to the system that raised her. Her goal is to give the support and understanding that she wanted when in a time in her life where she felt alone, unwanted, abandon, and actually hated herself. She wishes she had the support and understanding that she now gives to the young mothers she works with. Her life experiences taught her the true effects that physical, sexual, and mental abuse can have on a person.  She believes you never get over the trauma but you find a way to live with it.  She suffered all forms of abuse but she feels the emotional abandonment, and mental abuse is what hurt her the most and had the worst affects on her life.  Abuse left her so vulnerable, but she fights to be all she can be despite it all.

Episode 67: How to Rest as a Busy Person with Danielle Roberts

Do you get a weird panic feeling when you stop to rest? Like- Oh my gosh there is too much to do, I cannot possibly rest.  Ok me too.  I have been this way as a child and today’s episode is all about how to reframe rest and use it as a skill in productivity.  Rest is required for success but the words “grit” “hustle” and “grind” have become so glamorized that people are forgetting that our brains need rest in order to rejuvenate. Today you will meet Danielle Roberts, who wrote the book Created For This with you, the Jesus Loving Entrepreneur in mind. She knows what it’s like to juggle #allthethings in business and wrestle with the feeling of wanting to go deep with Jesus but not feel like there are enough hours in the day to make it all happen.

In addition to writing Created For This, she is an Accountability Coach, small business solutions creator, mentor, author and podcaster, wife, mom and Navy veteran. She has spent the last three years building a business online and spent countless hours listening to frustrated Christian entrepreneurs who felt as though no one really “got” them.  She created a free tool for you to learn how to better manage your time and can be found at: daniellemroberts.lpages.co/time-batching
