Getting healthy is about more than losing weight, it’s also about gaining energy. When we lead healthy lifestyles, it’s easier to wake up energized and excited about running our businesses.
Most of us see exercise and eating well as something we need to do, but we never seem to get around to it. We all know we need to drink water, eat our vegetables, and get our bodies moving, but for some reason turning those things into habits is easier said than done.
As Boss Moms, we’re driven to succeed in other areas of our lives, so what’s stopping us from committing to our health? How can we change the way we motivate ourselves to stay on a healthier path for good?
In this episode, Owner of Figured Out Fitness LLC, Jennifer Nagel shares that by developing solutions that fit in with our everyday lives, we’ll be more likely to commit to our health in the long term.
If you want to stay committed, your health and fitness “why” has to be 100% about YOU and no one else. - Jennifer Nagel

Our world is moving away from an emphasis on accumulating possessions as a measure of success, and towards the understanding that time is the true luxury.
Having more time gives us the power to pursue the things that matter most, and an excess of stuff robs us of that luxury.
Minimalism is one of the most impactful ways to get more out of our time, especially as we head into the holiday season. This is the time people struggle the most with stress as marketing messages pressure us to buy and accumulate more stuff.
The stress of excess possessions affects our kids too. By simplifying and paring down, we make their lives better and teach them to value what truly matters.
How can we apply minimalist principles to our lives, homes, and gift receiving? How do we set the stage for our kids to see time, not possessions, as the true gift?
In this episode, I’m joined by the author of Have Yourself a Minimalist Christmas, Meg Nordmann. We discuss how to navigate the emotional side of decluttering and why intentional minimalism benefits our children and gives us the space and time to focus on what we love.
The word to focus on isn’t minimalism, it’s intentionality. It’s about trying to be more intentional about our stuff by simplifying, curating, and editing things down to what truly matters. -Meg Nordmann

Entrepreneurs are bombarded with the persistent push to be everywhere and do all the things. This often comes from the mindset that creating more and multiplying what we sell will bring us better results
This way of thinking only causes unnecessary complexity and confusion. Doing more doesn’t increase our chances of success, it actually diminishes our impact.
Running a simple, streamlined business is the key to a chaos-free, scalable system that allows us to do what we’re passionate about more efficiently.
The key is dropping what’s not working and amplifying what is through evergreen content, automation, and honing in on the essentials.
How do we shift our mindset so we can let go of what’s not working? Why is evergreen content the key to simple stress-free scaling? In this episode, digital strategist and business coach, Brittany May shares how she helps women accomplish more in their businesses by doing less and amplifying the right things.
Brittany is a digital strategist and business coach for women entrepreneurs focused on helping them create smarter systems to scale simply. After running her first seven-figure business (the wrong way!) and having it take over her life, she is now passionate about helping moms structure their businesses in a way that is not only profitable but in a way that works FOR them and their families!
