Why did you choose to pursue a business?: Mindfulness and meditation has made such an impact on how I both show up as a woman and a Mother that I felt called to spread this message forward.
How many children do you have? How do you make time for your biz and family?: I have two children, both toddler. I work when I can! My kids spend 2 half days in school while I set up my 'office' at a nearby Starbucks (I'm here right now!). I also have a sitter that comes in two afternoons a week so that I can balance work and all demands of Mom life!
In what way are you making the world a better place?: I am on a mission to heal myself and believe that by sharing my story, I can give way for others the learn to heal themselves. For me, that's what it's all about!
What advice would you give to another mom who is afraid of pursuing her dreams?: ahhh!! You deserve happiness. You deserve passion and purpose. This is your chance to make an impact in the world. This is your opportunity to show your kids that anything they dream is possible!
How do you incorporate mindfulness into your life?: I wake up to a daily prayer and meditation practice. Depending on which of my children is crawling on me, sometimes I sit in meditation for 5 minutes, sometimes it's 20. I learn to be aware of my thoughts and how they are directly related to the current reality I am seeing. I choose and choose and choose again :) I do guided meditations for my children as they go to bed, relaxing them and helping them to feel a connection to their breath. I also personally attend many workshops that interest me. I love to be in these environments!
If you knew that you could not fail, what BIG dream do you have for your life?: To travel the world and speak on stage!
A community is so important to our well-being. Who is on YOUR support team?: My husband is my number 1 supporter. I am so blessed to have a partner who allows me time to work on building my business, attends my workshops to assist, and allows me space and time to learn and grow.
Who is your business role model?: Gabby Bernstein
What can someone expect from working with you or using your products?: I invite all moms that come to one of my workshops to learn to create their own sense of self. It is my hope that they have some takeaways that will help them recognize their thoughts, emotions, and how to parent from a place of fulfillment. My wish is that Mom learn to incorporate meditation and other mindfulness practices into their lives to become their best self so that they can raise they best version of their children possible.
