Running a Business as a Work at Home Mama

Tearing Down, Building Up (a personal update from my world)

I put up my maternity email auto-responder yesterday. While Tiny’s still hanging out in my belly — I’m ready for some breathing space from the day-to-day operations of Stratejoy.

Life’s been a whirlwind over here. Not in a necessarily in a bad way, but in a way that would previously have toppled me over in anxiety and insomnia.

(I’m definitely not sleeping well, but that’s got more to do with getting up to pee every 2 hours than stress! And yes, some pieces of life are causing me slight anxiety — choosing paint colors, trying to convince Ken to polish the cement exactly like my hair salon floors, agreeing on a boy’s name — but none of it’s major shit.)

Just whirlwind.

Making Changes in Your Life? Here’s the motherload of resources to help.

I believe honoring your life and your strengths means honoring your day-to-day actions and the personal choices you make with your time, energy and creative power. You can do all the visioning, desiring, action planning and big-hairy-goal-setting you want, but without the daily choice, habit or ritual to support those endeavors you are no closer to your vision.

The day-to-day can be decidedly unsexy. I get this.

But for those of us who geek out on self-awareness, systems, experimentation and personal transformation — The process of sustainable change (of using our day-to-day in honor of a larger goal) is fascinating!

6 New Ways to Honor Your Time (and Live Your One Wild and Precious Life)

There’s no getting around it.

Our day-to-day is our life.

I’m not being blunt to scare you or spread shame, but to shake you up a bit. When you think back to what you did today or yesterday or this weekend, are those days representative of the desires you hold for your life? Are they snapshots of the kind of woman you want to be? Are they examples of the kind of life you want to live?

Honey, what I want you to hear is this —

Honor your time as if your life depended on it.

How I Actually Use My Theme of the Year (It’s Revel BTW)

As I was sitting down to put some fun dates on the calendar for February (date night! massage!) I realized I never shared my theme for this year on the blog. Eek! I spend so much time working through this process and helping others through it with the Holiday Council, I think I just needed a little break from it in January.

But themes and ways of being and the expressions of those intentions are vital to how I live day by day, and since I’ve committed to sharing the very real “strategies for joy” I use in my own world, I knew I couldn’t just skip over my theme this year. Better late than never, eh?

(drum roll please)

In 2014, I’m living consciously with the word –

Reflecting back on my 2013 Goals

As I get ready for this year’s Holiday Council (we start tomorrow!) I’ve been a spending a good chunk of time reviewing my work from last year’s Council.

Did I really embody my theme of “Nourish”? A few things became clear as I reflected back… I rocked spending play-filled weekends with my family, changing the majority of our food consumption to real food, and I blew my income goal away. Hurrah! That said, I didn’t even come close to establishing a daily yoga practice

Talking Desires with Danielle LaPorte

One of my favorite parts of The Holiday Council is sharing the interviews I’ve been doing with inspiring women from around the web. This year I thought long and hard about who I wanted to talk to — I wanted women who seemed to manifest true magic in their lives, who had killer years, who were really embracing joyful devotion to their dreams.

So I made some big asks. And I got some big beautiful yeses.

Good news! In honor of the upcoming Holiday Council Program, I’ve teamed up with the Tiny Devotions team to give away a gorgeous mala bead necklace.

Why? There’s plenty of reasons, sweetness.

This particular Mala is the perfect accompanying talisman to doing our sassy soul work.

Why is being yourself so damn hard?

One of the toughest things you can do these days is “be yourself” in a world that wants you to be so many different things, all at the same time.

So what do you do?
