Growing up and as a young adult, my dad was always telling me to "dress for the job you want." And honestly, I was always pretty resistant to it.

 

But years later, I've come to believe that this phrase is one of the most important phrases to live by and embrace as entrepreneurs.

 

In this episode I'm going to share why I changed my mind about this particular phrase, and how I think you can apply it to how you're living life and doing business.

Recently we unveiled the brand new Boss Mom Website, including a fabulous new resources page created to help you clarify which tools you need and when you need them, depending on where exactly you are in your business.

 

As your business, products and services morph and grow, the tools you need will likely change too, but figuring out how they should change and in what order you should start and stop using tools can be tricky to figure out.

 

In this episode I'm going to help you gain confidence in choosing the best tools for where you're at and help you feel good about the money you're spending, by breaking down six questions to ask yourself when making these decisions.

Facebook ads are something we all know we’ll need to use at some point in our business journey, but it can be really challenging to figure them out because we either don’t have someone showing us the way OR they just aren’t our jam.

In this episode I’m joined by Julie Ford, a certified coach, trainer and author of Creating Time & Energy, a workbook that supports “crazy busy” working parents so they can live more “intentionally full” lives and enjoy every stage before the kids leave the nest ready to live well.

 

Throughout our conversation, you’ll hear Julie share her unique journey through Boss Mom life, how she learned to roll with the punches and make lemonade from lemons, and how she’s funneling her passions into helping women just like you and me create more time and energy for the things that matter in life.

In this episode I'm joined by video and YouTube strategist Trena Little, whose passion is helping online business owners create a video content strategy that works for their business.

 

Being a busy business owner herself, Trena understands the importance of making video simple and painless, but effective and lasting.

 

I just love that she describes her Youtube videos as being her "sales team" and they do the heavy lifting for free (seriously, how cute is that?!)
