I love this podcast. Kendra speaks to her audience like only a best friend can. She gives you the truth even if it can sting but only to help you be a better person, a better mom. I love her honesty and mission of positivity.

Description

It's ok, you can admit it. Sometimes motherhood seems less like the sweetness of a Pamper's commercial and more like a scene out of Jaws. Here at the Mother Like a Boss Podcast, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and modern homemaking, with honest conversations, tips, strategies and tools.

Episode Date
Making decisions in your home like a CEO
31:23

One of the best decisions I ever made was to run my home like I run my business. It's allowed us to create systems and routines that suit everyone and keep us on track like a well-oiled machine.

Being a CEO isn't about making all of the decisions, it's about making the right ones. You get to choose the type of household CEO you want to be and design your life in a way that fits your values.

Why we're committed to having uncomfortable conversations with our kids
31:07

"I'll tell you when you're older." isn't a phrase we say in the Hennessy house. My husband and I are committed to having uncomfortable conversations with our children at every age (in age appropriate ways, of course.)

It can be difficult to get over our own discomfort and lack of confidence, but what an amazing opportunity it is to have an open dialogue with our children and create a safe space for them to ask questions.

3 simple ways to set your future self up for success every day
24:50

One of my favorite ways to stay productive is to think of my future self as a different person, someone worthy of success and peace. She is someone worthy of having things set up for her without extra and added stress.

This idea of setting your future self (even if it's just the you in a few hours) is so freeing and can help build momentum in everything we do. Here are 3 simple ways to get started and show your future self she's worthy of time freedom.

5 tools that keep our family organized
20:53

No woman is an island and this house and family or 4 does not run on it's own. I love a good tool, especially when it makes my life easier. I thrive on simplicity and have created a home that helps us maintain simple systems.

Let's talk about 5 tools that keep our family organized (and able to maintain it, too!)

How to say no without justifications
33:33

No is a complete sentence. What a freeing statement. In theory, it sounds empowering, but what about the people pleasing need to provide a justification for every no we speak.

You don't owe anyone a reason or a justification for your boundaries or your choices and today in a great day to start saying no without the need to explain why.

How to create (and maintain) a seasonal routine
27:01

Not every routine is made for every season. We know that motherhood is all about the ebbs and flows and just like nature, seasons come and go. This can make creating routines that stick feel more difficult.

I want to uncomplicate the process of creating a seasonal routine that fits your life, whether it be a cleaning routine during the summer months, a nightly routine during sports season or a day-to-day schedule with a new baby.

Let's talk mother-daughter relationships with Dr. Michelle Deering
01:08:54

The mother-daughter relationship is one with many facets and levels. As a mother to a daughter and a daughter to a mother, I know that there can be discomfort, tension and unhealed wounds in these relationships. I'm so excited to welcome Dr. Michelle Deering to the podcast to discuss these relationships and how we can learn from them as both mothers and daughters.

Head to the show notes for more information and details on this episode.

An easier approach when motherhood feels hard
38:16

There is no doubt that motherhood, no matter the season, often feels hard, plain and simple. There's nothing worse than feeling like you're failing all while someone else tells you how "easy" it can be.

Instead of trying to make the situations (which are often out of my control) easier, I'm focusing on bringing ease to my approach. That means uncomplicating my decisions, my schedule, my home and my boundaries.

In a world with so much out of our control, it's time to step up and take back control of our approach to life because ease just feels more empowering.

3 simple ways to uncomplicate goals
20:45

We're in the second quarter of the year, a time when most of us realize that those new year's resolutions and goals have fallen by the wayside. It's ok and it happens to all of us.

I want to help you create goals you can stick to, without the complication, long-term commitments or difficult methods. Today, let's talk about 3 simple ways to uncomplicate your goals and make them stick.

Cleaning your house when you hate cleaning
33:16

Raise your hand if you hate cleaning?

I get it. Especially with busy mom lives, cleaning just seems like one more thing to do and a never-ending chore. You clean one room and another is getting messy.

One of the pillars here at Mother Like a Boss is simplicity in all things home management. That includes cleaning. In today's episode, I'm giving the low down on how to clean your house (and keep it that way) even if you really hate doing it.

The comparison trap: The good, the bad and the uncomfortable
28:02

It's been said that comparison is the thief of joy and it couldn't be more true. Social media has made it easier than ever to gaze at the highlight reels that others post and cause us to compare ourselves constantly to them.

However, comparison isn't always bad. When we use it as a form of inspiration, it can be joyous. The issue is when we compare for the sake of self-judgement.

Today, we're going to talk the good, the bad and the uncomfortable when it comes to the comparison trap.

Small steps create big leaps!
25:57

No one gets where they are without taking a million small steps to be there. The same is true in motherhood, in business, working towards your goals, anything. Our children don't learn to run at full speed before they can crawl. Why? Because it's the small steps, the consistency, the learning and mistakes, and follow through where big leaps and full speed ahead success is found.

This is a pep-talk meets value-packed episode on the benefit of loving on the small steps rather than waiting around for the big score of a goal to be reached.

The importance of a motherhood support system
24:20

Motherhood is such a beautiful gift, but let's be really honest, it can also be lonely. Really lonely.

Moms deserve a support system. We deserve a group of other friends and family that cheer us on and encourage us. But where do we start? Let's talk about it.

How to stop the "all or nothing" cycle
26:00

If you're a perfectionist and you know it clap your hands...and a sea of noise erupts

There is no shame in the perfectionist game, except when there is. The ego creates a world inside your mind when you should be able to do it all, or nothing at all (like O-Town would say) The problem is, we'll never be able to do it all meaning that the only option left is nothing.

I've had enough of mom guilt
27:53

My boldness is coming out in big ways today and I don't know that it will resonate with everyone. I making a statement here and now because in 2021, I've had enough of mom guilt. I've had enough of the way it makes us feel, the hoops it makes us jump through, the judgement is stabs at our souls. We deserve better than feeling guilty for just existing.

Modern homemaking Q&A
43:36

You asked, I'm answering!

I get a lot of questions about homemaking, home management and motherhood, so in this episode I'm going to answer those for you. We all know that when one person has a question, it means many people behind the scenes do, too!

A new approach to delegating and chores
32:21

I get asked about chores a lot. What chores to give kids, at what ages to start, what to do when they don't do their chores, how to create better chore routines? The truth is, there is no one way that fits every household or lifestyle. What I have found is that when we approach delegation from a place of empowerment versus nagging, the results speak for themselves.

This is a different approach to delegating and chores, beyond the charts, schedules, reward systems and routines.

Let's talk momentum over motivation
28:54

Yup, we've talked about this topic before and yup, there is another couple of episodes touching on this topic and yup we're talking about it again. It deserves an even deeper discussion because the power of creating momentum in your life versus waiting for motivation to hit you like a bolt of lightning can't be understated.

We all want to know how to get more done without having to to do, because good heavens moms are already doing enough. The answer is momentum and I want to show you exactly why that's the case in today's episode.

Organizing your life and making it stick!
41:59

Time to get organized! (side eye coming at me, I know) Organization has been widely misunderstood for years. You don’t get organized by buying cute baskets from Home Goods or buying the coolest label maker on the market, as much as we all wish that was the case. Organizing your life is all about simple systems that you can duplicate and replicate.

But we all know that it isn't starting the systems that's hard, it's maintaining them. So let's talk about how to organize your life, your schedule and your home and finally make it stick.

Feb 04, 2021
Homemaking, 2021 style
31:39

Yup, homemaking still matters in 2021. It mattered last year, it mattered 100 years ago and it will matter 100 years from now (at least, I imagine it will.) Why? Homemaking is nothing more than a cultivation of what matters to you in your life. Because whether you're a mom that works a traditional 9-5, owns a business or stays home to raise her kids full time, your home matters and you deserve to live your life without the stress and burden that has traditionally fallen on the shoulders of moms.

So let's talk homemaking, 2021 style.

How to actually create routines that work for you
18:59

There is no shortage of information on routines these days. Throw a rock on Pinterest and you'll find a blog post, a chore chart, a color-coded schedule or a guru claiming they know the absolute best morning routine that will change your life. The thing is, how do you know what actually works?

After 5 years of helping tens of thousands of moms create routines that work for their unique lives, I want to give you the 411 on the truths and myths that are wasting your time each day. Routines can (and should be) simple. If it feels too complicated, it probably is.

Feeling the burden of doing all the things? Wishing you could consistently keep those promises you make to yourself? Same, mama! I created the Let's Get Consistent Tracker and Guide for you. Download it for FREE here.

How to feel better by doing less
27:19

Where my overachievers at? If you grew up getting praise when you did more, you're probably thinking that doing less is lazy. We've been conditioned by a world that tells us that more is better, because doing more is how we prove our worth.

This is an episode all about the beauty and power of doing less as a way to feel better; emotionally, mentally and physically. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, mama.

Let's talk about limiting beliefs
30:06

Our beliefs are everything. What we believe about ourselves is everything. Limiting beliefs are the false thoughts that keep us from living the life we want and going for our biggest goals and desires.

The problem is that most of us don't know we have limiting beliefs. Our egos convince us that they're true. If you're finding you can't ever break through a ceiling in your life, this is the episode you need to listen to. Understanding your limiting beliefs is the first step to stopping the mama self sabotage.

How to close out a challenging year (and prepare for 2021)
25:58

We all know what kind of a year 2020 has been, but with all of the challenges we've had, we've also been given a lot of lessons to learn from. This "new year" is going to look different than any in the past, so how do we wrap up a challenging year while preparing ourselves for whatever 2021 has for us?

How to actually follow through on all those plans you made
37:30

Oooooo, raise your hand if you're a planner like me? I'm not just talking about that physical hardcover planning calendar you buy every year or the case full of Paper Mate colored flair pens you use to doodle out the future, I mean the hours and hours you spend making plans only to never follow through on them. Life happens, but the thing is, life will always happen.

So how do we follow through on those plans we make, whether it's a small daily task, a new habit we want to form, a better routine we want to follow or a big, scary goal we're ready to crush.

You deserve to be happy: An episode on worth
30:40

How often are you truly taking the time to be happy, for no other reason that it feels good to feel that way? Self worth is difficult for moms who feel like we constantly have to earn the reward of happiness, or gain it from making others happy first. Let's have an honest and powerful discussion about the meaning of worth and the happiness you deserve.

Creating an incredibly imperfect holiday season
24:42

The holiday season is here and probably looking much different in 2020 than it has in the past. It's time to ditch the traditional stress and create new traditions that serve you. An imperfect holiday season sounds like exactly what we all need.

A mom's guide to starting a business (in any motherhood season!)
30:04

Calling all the mamas out there who are ready to start a business, but have no idea where to begin. I've started two super successful businesses: one while I was pregnant, 22 years old and totally uneducated about starting a business and another while I was still running my first business, all with a 9 year old and 3 year old in tow. I know a few things, but more importantly, I've LEARNED a few things.

13 years of starting, growing and scaling businesses as a busy mom has taught me huge lessons, and I want to share them with you now. If you're confused and overwhelmed with where to start in business, this is a must-listen episode.

Plus, I have a special Black Friday invitation for you to keep doing the work to start a business, no matter what season of motherhood you're in right now. This is UNMISSABLE, friends.

"Is this urgent or important?": An honest look at priorities
31:58

You're in the middle of an important task and your phone dings. You stop what you're doing to check, thinking it's just as important as the task you're doing. Turns out, it was a spam text message. Now you're off track, annoyed and have to switch back to that important task you were doing in the first place.

Just because something is urgent does not make it important and vice versa. It all comes down to priorities, a tricky little idea in motherhood where everything feels important and urgent. This episode explores what priorities really are and how to implement them more effectively into your life without feeling like you're doing all the things.

Consistency and confidence: A perfect match
14:05

"I'll get things done when I'm more confident." How many times have you thought or said this? Here's the issue: confidence comes from consistency. It comes from doing the same thing over and over, imperfectly until one day you realize you're more confident than the day before.

But consistency isn't always easy and feels, well, kinda boring. So let's talk about how to implement small touches of consistency into your day and build your confidence through doing, not wishing and waiting.

How I'm healing my relationship with myself
25:17

Do you know the most important relationship you'll ever have the privilege of being involved in? The one you have with yourself. Our relationship with ourselves is life long and yet the one we neglect the most.

After many years of neglecting how I treat myself, I'm doing the work to heal brokenness, even when it's messy, even when it's not fun. I deserve to feel good in my own mind and so do you.

Resetting "the bar" in motherhood and living YOUR best life
23:20

I'm passionate about helping moms discover and design their own uniquely best lives. That means resetting the bar and what it means for you.

You're allowed to create a life that suits your values and vision, whether it fits what the world around you says is best. Your goals should meet you where you are right now without judgement or having to sacrifice what you love.

Changing your "shoulds" into "coulds"
17:22

How often are you "shoulding" on yourself? "I should be doing something different. I should be able to get more done. I should be a better mom. I should stay home. I should work. I should put that laundry away. I should make more money. I should be cleaner. I should, I should I should."

Shoulds are obligations. Coulds are possibilities. I don't know about you, but possibilities feel way lighter and more fun than obligation and duty.

Why traditional goal setting is failing moms and what I'm doing instead
34:29

Goals. We love 'em. We hate 'em. They scare us. They annoy us.

Motherhood creates unique challenges, hurdles and struggles, so why are we trying to achieve goals the same way as everyone else? You feel burnt out, overwhelmed and under appreciated, and sitting down to create a list of audacious goals to go after is just one more thing on the to-do list.

I've created a new framework for deciding what I want and how I'm going to get it, both in my business and personal life because I deserve to reach my goals not matter how big or small they are. So do you. Let's flip the whole goal culture upside down.

Rewriting your motherhood story
18:51

Your motherhood story is unique to you, but who are you letting write and narrate it? Your past? Your society? Your in-laws? The mommy groups you're a part of on Facebook?

If given the opportunity to rewrite the story of how you want to show up in motherhood for yourself and your children, what would it sound like? Let's erase the current narrative and rewrite your story to one that allows you more peace and less burnout.

Q&A "How can I stop feeling jealous of people who have what I want?"
31:27

It's Q&A time again and like a fun little mail bag that children's TV hosts would pull audience letters from, I read your messages and DMs to choose the most asked questions. And this one comes up a LOT.

Gratitude is great, but what about all that jealousy that bubbles up when you see another woman who has more than you, who has it better than you, who has something you want...or so you perceive it to be. I have some great insight into what that jealously might actually be and how to shift our thoughts to, "How can I have that?" versus, "Why don't I have that?!"

Hey moms, let's talk about the ego
46:25

Ok, we're getting deep mamas. We're talking about the identities we've created for ourselves, the beliefs we hold and the reasons that most of them are complete crap. Ouch! So why do they seem so real? The ego.

Whether it's in psychology class or a self-help book or in reference to someone who thinks highly of themselves or even on this podcast, you've probably heard about the ego before. There are many different descriptions and definitions of the ego out there, but we're going to talk about what it means for your mindset. She's a mean girl and a tantrumy toddler all rolled into one and it's time to finally recognize the ego for what she is: an identity we've created.

How to enjoy the journey on the path to your goal
29:07

Let's face it: 2020 did a lot of our goals dirty. January 1 seems like a lifetime ago and many of the things we thought we'd be doing got deferred or cancelled. The biggest obstacle to reaching a goal isn't always the outside circumstances, though, it's our inability to let time pass. How do we enjoy the journey, as slow as it may seem, on our way to what we're after without wanting to give up along the way?

We bought our dream house! A sneak peek inside the mindset, the move and the making of brand new routines
39:34

We did it! We bought our dream home and it only took 10 years for the dream to become a reality. A long time for some, but exactly the right time for us. No dream or goal is realized without a whole lot of blood, sweat, and copious amounts of tears, and I'm breaking it all down in this episode.

I had to change a lot of beliefs and thoughts to make this possible, so let me share with you the biggest shifts in mindset that had to be made in order to get here, as well as the new routines we're putting into place now so that we can spend more time enjoying our home.

No, you don't need to be motivated to get things done
24:46

"I just don't feel motivated." How many times have you said this while sitting on the couch, watching another episode of Gilmore Girls, not doing that thing you totally said you were going to do? Samesies, friend. You know why motivation is so hard? Because you're never going to be motivated to do crap you don't want to do, plain and simple.

The most freeing moment of my life was when I realized I didn't have to be motivated to get things done, and that I could rely on momentum over all else. Motivation is a fleeting emotion. If you aren't feeling, you can't just summon it to come. This episode explores and invites you to ditch the idea of motivation so you can actually get things done and feel good about it.

Q&A: "I'm moving! How can I keep my house clean from the start?"

It's another Q&A episode here at the Mother Like a Boss podcast. I love taking your popular and frequently asked questions and giving you some guidance when I can.

As I prepare for my own move into our new house, I figured this was a fitting question to answer. A new home is a fresh start and a great time to revamp old routines, especially cleaning.

An honest conversation about resentment in motherhood
36:19

I'm going to say something that will immediately ruffles some feathers: there have been times in my 13 years as a mom that I've felt resentful of the life I'd created. I'm saying that out loud in the podcast today as a way to start the conversation and end the shame. Resentment is the bi-product of circumstances, mindsets and beliefs and it doesn't mean you don't absolutely love your children.

Ignoring the feelings, or believing that this has to be " the way it is" in modern motherhood is going to keep resentment at the wheel, driving your life and causing you more unhappiness. You deserve more. Let's have an open and honest conversation about where it comes from and how to handle the feelings.

BEST OF: The cost of constantly complaining
39:06

It's our BEST OF series, summer edition.

The only thing worse than complaining is the complaining about complaining. This episode is complain-free. Instead, this is an honest discussion about the price we're all paying by living our lives through the lens of negativity and complaints.

Complaining is more than just negativity about your situation, it's a grasp for control in the moment. But what is the cost of doing that all the time and what example are we really setting for our children?

BEST OF: Meal planning 101 (even if you hate meal planning)
34:20

It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date. Today, we're taking you back to meal planning 101 (even for those of you that really hate meal planning. I see you...)

I'll be honest, I have had a love/hate relationship with meal planning over the years. As I dig in deeper to that relationship, I realize it all comes down to the challenge most of us face: overcomplication-itis

Meal planning can be as simplistic or as sophisticated as your heart desires (or your time allows) but let's talk about how to get started and make it easy, even if the thought of meal planning makes you gag.

BEST OF: How to clean like a professional house cleaner
29:55

It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date. Today's episode is packed with practical and valuable tips to make cleaning your home less complicated.

After 11 years in the professional house cleaning biz, I learned a thing or two about how to clean more effectively in less time. It isn't about being the best. I started out knowing absolutely nothing, but over time I learned and it helped me not only build a thriving business, but also keep my own house clean in less time. I'm passing on this knowledge to my own kids now, and onto you.

You don't have to like cleaning to clean like a pro. It's all about making small shifts that have lasting results. Cleaning shouldn't be taking up all your time, friend.

BEST OF: Why we need homemaking now more than ever
29:01

It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date.

It is officially time to let go of all the myths and lies we've been believing as homemakers and embrace the finer parts of making a home that don't involve the likes of Pinterest-perfect perfectionism or burdened mothers acting as servants.

In this busy, noisy world, it may be more important than ever to cultivate a space in your life that covers you from the stresses of the outside world. Modern homemakers, unite.

The one's for the people pleasers
40:38

Where are all my people pleasers at? *sees all the hands raised*

It feels like being a people pleaser would be a great thing. Who doesn't want to make others happy? But is that really what we're doing when we put everyone else's happiness and well-being before our own, or are we really just avoiding the discomfort that comes from setting boundaries?

Are we really concerned with appeasing other people, or are we concerned with how we'll be perceived if we don't?

When "Just think positive!" becomes toxic
29:55

"Just think positive!" We've all heard it. We've all said it. It seems so harmless. It's good advice, right? Right...until it's not.

Positivity is a beautiful thing, but pretending to be positive by neglecting our true feelings is not. Positivity can become a toxic cycle when we're using it to avoid our true feelings and emotions, or the uncomfortable work that needs to be done on our mindset.

You're allowed to NOT feel positive, mama. Let's chat about how to create a more positive mindset for you without in a way that feels freeing, not shameful or toxic.

There is so much more to explore and learn from this episode. Check out the show notes and other goodies here.

5 ways to help your children create a growth mindset
35:16

A growth mindset is an open mindset and our children deserve to learn the power of creating abundance and success on their own terms. Growth mindset is the belief that anything is possible and that we are in fact NOT victims of our own circumstances. The earlier children learn the power of their own thoughts, the more equipped they will be in adulthood to focus on growth and joy over the limits they self-impose.

Let's have a real talk about mommy burnout
39:35

In the adulting Olympics, moms would be the juggling champions, hands-down (wouldn't it be great if that were an actual Olympic sport?!) Moms are master jugglers and pride themselves on doing all the things, but is doing all the things the right thing?

Mommy burnout is a hot topic these days and what I've found is there is a lot of blame going around. So let's have a real conversation about mommy burnout, where is stems from, how we can take responsibility for it and how we can free ourselves from it once and for all.

How to love your home even if you don't love your house
32:47

This is a common one, mamas and it's worth an honest conversation.

Living in a house you aren't super jazzed about can affect how you feel about your home overall. Our houses are dwellings, but our homes are a feeling. We carry them with us wherever we go. How do we go about loving our homes when we don't exactly love the dwellings we're in?

The true difference between embracing imperfection and settling for less
25:45

Progress over perfection is a beautiful and powerful quote and mindset shift. Perfection is an unattainable goal and reaching for it wastes heaps of time, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for less. Embracing a life of imperfect effort and imperfect moments is not the same as settling for less than you truly desire.

Creating your optimal (NOT perfect) day
32:47

Someone once asked me, "What does your perfect day look like?" and my response was "I looks like an imperfect day because I can't create a perfect day."

The word "optimal" has been popping up in my life lately and while I usually teach about how to create your ideal day, I've started to shift a bit. What if we thought about creating a framework for our days around what is optimal, what is best? What would serve us the best? What can we get rid of? What can we keep? If your day was created around peak performance in the season you're in now with the resources you have now, what would it look like? Let's explore that. This episode is pure fire!

The power of self-compassion

The nurturing soul of a mother is full of compassion for her children, but how much warmth and understanding do you extend to yourself? We're conditioned to be hard on ourselves because the mindset of perfectionism runs deep. What would happen if we showed ourselves the same grace and compassion in our worst moments that we do for other people?

Why I stopped trying to make my kids happy
36:31

Moms are nurturers by nature and nothing feels more nurturing than providing our kids with happy lives. However, in my never-ending quest in the self-development world, I've realized that fostering happiness is not the same as constantly trying to force happiness onto my children.

We are not responsible for the emotions of others and micromanaging the feelings of our kiddos is exhausting and pretty unproductive. I want to create a safe space for my children to feel a wide range of emotions, so that when they're unhappy, they learn to cope instead of seek out someone to fill them up. The road can feel difficult, mama and I hope this episode helps you navigate it.

How to stay confident in your choices in the era of sanctimommies
40:03

Remember the days when you didn't know everyone's opinion about everything and they didn't know your opinion about everything either? The good old days. Opinions are great because they make us all different, but being sanctimonious in the way we show up with those opinions can be damaging to the confidence level of us all, moms included.

Everywhere you turn, it seems like the sanctimommies have taken over, judging other moms for how they live. How can we stay confident in how we show up for our lives when it seems like we're always being judged, or are judging others? More lovingly, how can we understand why moms are so much more judgmental these days and show them compassion in their not-so-kind moments.

What it means to be a homemaker in 2020
31:15

Times may be changing, but homemaking is still important. Why? Because your home is more than the cleaning, the cooking, the momming. A home is what happens inside and outside the walls, separate from the material world. Our homes are intangible, a feeling more than anything. That never stops being important.

So what does that mean for modern moms and reluctant homemakers alike? Today is a discussion that answers that very questions with truth and respect.

From the viewpoint of a stepchild
40:07

Vulnerable. That's what this episode is. In my motherhood communities, we get a lot of questions about step, or bonus parenting. I may not be a stepparents, but I am a stepchild and have been since I was 3. I wanted to open up on this episode and give a unique perspective from the viewpoint of a "bonus kid." Sometimes, the best ways to approach difficult situations are by putting yourself in the other person's shoes.

Q&A with my teenage daughter
01:01:16

It's official: I'm the mother of a teenager daughter.

Someone catch me as I fall over in disbelief.

I am uninterested in typecasting her in the role of "moody teen" and instead plan to let her forge her own path, emotions and all.

We thought it would be a great way to celebrate the birth of my first born by doing an insightful and honest Q&A session with her. Our listeners (and their teens!) asked and we answered.

You'll hear everything from how she feels about having entrepreneur parents to how she deals with peer pressure to how she stays confident in a world that tries to strip girls of their worth. This is the perfect episode to listen to with your daughters, your preteens and your teens alike.

The trap of being an overachiever
35:05

Being an overachiever was a badge of honor for much of my life. Achieving gave me purpose and accolades made me feel worthy, but at what cost?

There is a trap that's easy to fall into as a go-getter, an overachiever in life and it's time we discuss what price we pay in motherhood for falling into this trap. The gold-star mentality can be costly when no one is handing us gold stars anymore.

It's a new, fresh year and everyone is trying to get (and stay) motivated to accomplish all the things. I have news for you: motivation is NOT what you need to be successful or get things done.

Our holiday boundaries

"Here come the holidays, here come the holidays, right down stressful lane."

I am self-confessed boundary ninja, but it hasn't always been that way. Around the holidays, which is my favorite time of the year, the last thing I want is to feel stressed and overwhelmed. I want to enjoy the time with my family and the season upon us and boundaries are the way to do that.

How to stop "routine-ing" your life away
26:23

If you've been around the Mother Like a Boss™ world for any amount of time, you know one of my signature phrases is, "Routines should fit into your life, not the other way around." Routines are great, the bee's knees for sure, but what happens when they become an obsession? It's easy to become obsessed with micromanaging the moments of our lives to avoid the chaos we fear, but is that any way to really enjoy your life?

Today's episode explores how to let go of the stronghold that routines can have if we're not careful and how to allow routines to serve your life so they don't RUN your life.

How I found financial freedom through my online business
32:01

When I started my first business at 22, not knowing anything about business, I didn't think much about financial freedom. I was brought up to believe you worked, made money then retired. It wasn't until years later when I opened my mind to new possibilities that I realized I could create my own financial freedom for my family while empowering moms around the world to create freedom in their own homes.

The question gets asked often, "How did you start Mother Like a Boss and how has it helped your family?" As always, I'm opening up in another vulnerable episode that I hope will empower more women to seek financial and time freedom for themselves.

Are you afraid of succeeding?
09:22

We're all familiar with fear of failure, but what about a fear of success? It seems downright nutty to fear doing well and yet here so many of us sit afraid of being too much, having too much or maintaining too much.

Whether it's at a job, in a business, at home with your kids, in your marriage or just managing your home, fear of success is real and ultimately causes us to self-sabotage so we never quite reach a level that seems out of reach.

Finding the best way versus the right way
29:09

How focused are you on doing things the "right" way? Does not knowing the right way keep you from doing anything at all? The personal self-sabotage is dangerous as a mom, because there is no right way, no perfect way.

Instead, let's work on finding the BEST way. The best way that works for our home, our family, our values and our schedules.

How I actually keep my house clean in under 30 minutes a day
35:17

I'm still shocked at how controversial the topic of house cleaning can be in the motherhood community and how dead-set we all are that it has to be the worst, most exhausting thing in the world. It's no wonder how many side-eyes I get when I say I spend only 30 minutes a day cleaning my house.

With two kids, a business and a slew of other responsibilities, I'm pretty uninterested in spending my precious moments cleaning inefficiently. I want to give you back your minutes and allow you to spend less time cleaning and more time living.

The truth about expectations
35:51

"I have high expectations." is a phrase I've heard my entire life, from teachers, parents and even out of my own life. But what does that really mean? In the world of motherhood, having expectations of our children and family can cause more resentment than good, especially when they aren't communicated.

How do you truly create a home that is managed well without demanding unrealistic expectations of yourself and others, and what does unrealistic even mean? How can we learn to let go of control that expectations hold over others and start communicating our needs in a productive way?
