Three things NJ's loving:
Can I quote you on that?
"When you've got a million things going on, a family mission statement will help you make quick decisions."
"My work time is my work time and my family time is my family time."
"My blanket decision for everything is no. Straight off the board, no. It's so much easier to change a no into a yes than a yes into a no."
"When you are really careful with your ideal client and you turn down the ones who aren't your ideal client, the right ones will come as long as you're putting out the right product for your ideal client."
"I want my kids to live in that sweet spot where their passions and talent intersect. And the only way I know how to make that happen is to model it myself."
"If I want my kid to live a life where they're passionate about their work, I have to find my passion for work and live it."
"As boss moms, it is really important to think about the things that make us happy and do them. Because, when we have our feet planted firmly in both worlds, there are a million demands coming at us from all the fronts. So make time and space that's just for you. When you take a little time for self care, you'll carry it over and will be able to be a better boss and a better mom.
"It's okay that something that worked for you for a season doesn't work for you anymore because you've grown and changed into a new season."
