There’s a lot of trial and error in starting a business, and it’s easy to end up feeling knocked around by what works and what doesn’t, on top of raising our kids. With all of this going on, how can we approach our businesses from a place of calmness?

 

Is it possible to be multi-focused and still get things done? How can we find our inner peace while we deal with all the inevitable ups and downs?

 

In this episode, the Creator of Refreshed Moms, Deanna Mason returns to the show to share how to prioritize rest as Boss Moms. 

 

3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

 

  • Why having space is non-negotiable

    No good ideas can come from a chaotic backdrop, so why are we letting our mental, emotional and spiritual ‘space’ become an afterthought?

 

  • How to get grounded

    How can we connect with our value and worth more regularly and in a deeper way?

 

  • Why we need to move away from ‘self-care’ reasoning

    Self-care is a nice buzzword, but could it be holding us back from really prioritizing our inner wellbeing?

Turning 40 is a huge milestone and a birthday that feels different from other ones. A pivotal birthday brings up so many feelings - fear, excitement, anticipation, joy, apprehension, and tons of questions about what getting older means to us. 

 

The older we get, the more we see how much we’ve lived, and how much more we still have to experience if we choose to stay young at heart and young in mind. 

 

How do we age gracefully, on our terms, and continue to strive towards being the best version of ourselves?  

 

In this very special episode of the Boss Mom podcast, I share my thoughts and feelings about getting older, as I count down to my 40th birthday. 



Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

 

  • How to age on your terms

    We can be anything we want to be, at any age, Look at what you want to accomplish, without wondering whether you should, whether you should have already done it, or if you’re too old to do it. 

 

  • Why our age shouldn’t limit what we can accomplish

    Aging doesn’t mean doing or trying less. We have the opportunity to become the best version of ourselves by staying in constant curiosity, and continually striving for new thoughts, ideas, and skills. 

 

  • How to shift your mindset about getting older

    Our age doesn’t have to be something that happens to us, or something bad. It’s something we should wear proudly because we’ve earned every wrinkle, line, experience, and every ounce of our wisdom.

As moms, we know how unpredictable life can be, so it’s normal to have some bad days. However, they should always be in the minority, and if they aren’t, it may be time to take a look at our parenting strategies.

 

Could our present approach be making us more susceptible to an endless cycle of ‘off’ days? Where are we going wrong? 

 

Can we switch it up so the good days outnumber the bad?

 

In this episode, co-author of Parenting While Working from Home and co-owner of AdoreThemParenting.com, Shari Medini shares how to implement positive parenting.

 

3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

 

  • Why we need to be mindful of what we’re taking in

    Parenting isn’t always glamorous, and that’s what makes cynically funny blogs so relatable. However, while it’s important to validate our experiences, getting too caught up in the negatives will only add to our frustrations, so we have to remind ourselves of the good, too.  

 

  • How to create a more positive dynamic with our kids

    ‘Because I said so’ is often a go-to response when our kids question us, but it’s not the most conducive to their learning. By explaining to our children why they need to do something, we can open up a conversation, rather than issue commands. 

 

  • Why positive parenting isn’t lax parenting

    Positive parenting isn't about giving our kids free rein to do whatever they want: in fact, it's a way to give them more responsibility, while setting boundaries. This gives them the space to make their own decisions with our guidance, instead of our micromanagement.

We often hear that time heals all wounds, but unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Trauma is tricky, and if we aren’t dealing with it head on, we run the risk of reliving our darkest days, or worse: passing them on to our kids.

 

How can we get started with the process of healing our scars, so we can prevent them from festering in other areas of our lives? Is there a way to cure our trauma for good, so it stops controlling us?

 

In this episode, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and founder of MomConnections, Amelia Mora Mars shares the steps we can take to stop letting our past control our present and define our future. 




Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode

 

  • How to recognize the lies we tell ourselves
    Many of us tell ourselves we’re too busy to sit with our thoughts and really feel them, but that’s just not true. Slowing down to listen to our inner voices is uncomfortable, but it’s also completely necessary.

 

  • Why forgiveness is about us, first and foremost
    Hating a person for their actions towards us may feel like it’s hurting them, but it hurts us more. 

 

  • When to shift our focus within
    Bad experiences throughout our lives can put us into constant survival mode, and that’s exhausting. How do we start focusing on what’s best for ourselves and our mental health?
