The Mompreneur Struggle is Real

Reality Bites

This one is for my entrepreneur ladies out there. I have learned an extraordinary amount about myself, my business, and my life in just the last 2 years even though I had been working in my field for 15 years prior. It’s truly amazing what each new year can bring, what you learn and realize about the world and yourself, and how much you can grow as a person. I had no idea where certain ideas or projects would lead me, and now I can see the endless possibilities. It’s mind-blowing how things come together organically and begin to make sense when they certainly did not just a short time ago.

Most of the time, it’s hard AF. It’s exhausting and overwhelming and exciting at the same time. I can be my best friend and my worst enemy. The highest highs and lowest lows are constant. I can’t help it though and even when I try to slow down, my mind just keeps going.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or mompreneur thinking about starting a business, in the beginning stages of it, or a seasoned veteran, my guess is that you are overwhelmed (or you go in stages of overwhelm). I am a dietitian. I help people live a happier and healthier life. But I wear so many other hats, and, ahem, the Mom Hat comes first.

Although my journey still feels early, there have been mentors along the way that have impacted me greatly, not just in my business but in how I view myself and that is the key to change and to grow without limits. They have showed me the way to a sense of confidence and passion that make me a better person and enable me to handle the constant rollercoaster of running a business and being so passionate about helping people, that you can’t help but eat sleep and breathe it.

Thank you for my mentors Joy Bauer and Keri Glassman who have taught me and inspire me every day.
