Ep 068: Dealing with toxic relationships as a mom

10/11/2018
More
We're deviating a bit from the lightheartedness of Mother Like a Boss to discuss a pretty important topic: toxic relationships. We know them. We've been a part of them in some form. They strip us of joy and keep us wrapped up in stress. This episode is my call out to all my sweet mamas that are dealing with or engaged in toxic relationships right now, whether in the home, with family, at work or with friends. You deserve better. You can make the choices to eliminate the toxic parties and...

Ep 067: Creating an intentional bookshelf w/Samantha Munoz

10/9/2018
More
There is no denying the power of literature and reading as it applies to raising our kiddos, but how many of us are thinking about this intentionally? How many of us parents are looking to build intentional bookshelves for our children that mirror the values we want to instill in them? I'm pleased to have Samantha Munoz of Addison Reads on the show to discuss the importance of cultivating a purposeful library in our homes and how literature can help us with a myriad of parenting issues....

Ep 065: My work-at-home mom schedule

10/4/2018
More
I've always been what society would consider a "working mom" although my belief is that every mom is a working mom. Since my oldest daughter was a tiny little bean inside my belly, I have owned and operated my very own business. Since going all in with Mother Like a Boss and ending my cleaning business almost 17 months ago, my schedule has dramatically changed. Although my schedule may not look similar to yours, I wanted to give you a glimpse inside my day-to-day routines, how I worked at...

Ep 064: From lack mindset in motherhood to abundance

10/2/2018
More
The last 8 years of my life has been spent opening my mind up fully to the idea of how abundant our universe is and therefore, how abundant we are in life. We live with pure abundance all around us and have the ability to live from a place of unlimited possibilities, especially as mothers and yet we’re surrounded by lack mindset, lack vocabulary, lack beliefs. The very idea of motherhood is abundant. We birth or become the caretakers of other human beings and have the capacity to open our...

Ep 063: Mindset like a boss Monday- Cleaning doesn't have to suck

10/1/2018
More
Today's mindset shift is brought to you by the ability to clean without dragging your feet and having a toddler-like temper tantrum. We've all been there, giving the side-eye to the daily cleaning and negatively discussing how much it sucks. It doesn't have to and the more you perpetuate that belief, the more you'll find yourself hating it. Cleaning isn't a punishment for living in your home anymore than brushing your teeth is a punishment for eating. It's a privilege to have full lives...

Ep 061: The ever changing seasons of motherhood w/ Meagan Francis

9/25/2018
More
Motherhood, like life, is a series of ever-changing seasons. There are ebbs and flows, and sometimes curveballs we didn’t expect. The key isn’t to learn how to avoid the changes, but how to roll with them. I had the pleasure of inviting Meagan Francis on the show today, a mom of 5 and one half of the wildly popular podcast The Mom Hour. We talk about her start in the mom blogosphere and our similar takes on the often dangerous “hot mess mom” culture. Meagan throws down a lot of truth and...

Ep 060: Mindset like a boss Monday- Stop the self-sabotage

9/24/2018
More
Today's mindset shift is all about eliminating the sabotaging behaviors we all fall into. Whether it’s perfectionism, that nagging pull to procrastinate or just a pervasive desire to completely go against what you know is best, self-sabotage completely interferes with our ability to achieve amazing goals. Time to love ourselves fully and stop the sabotaging behavior. Want more from this episode? Head over to www.motherlikeaboss.com/podcast/060 for the full show notes and more goodies. If...

Ep 059: Sticking to routines when your life is unpredictable

9/20/2018
More
Our lives aren't always as cookie-cutter as we had planned them to be. Life as a mom can be messy and unpredictable. Between work schedules, extracurriculars, sports, partners that travel and a myriad of other things that pop up each day, our day-to-day tasks can be unpredictable. So how do you stick to a solid routine when you don't live a routine life? In this episode, I'm introducing the idea of a "floating routine" and how helpful it can be for keeping your life running smooth (ish)...

Ep 058: How to chill out when it comes to motherhood and making your home

9/18/2018

When I put a call out to my audience to see what topics you most wanted to hear about, this answer struck me in such a hilariously real way: "Can you do an episode on how to chill out as a mom?" Could that be filled with anymore truth about how motherhood feels sometimes? You asked, I answered. This episode is a tribute to the chill and how to achieve it in motherhood and home management. There is no greater burden in our lives than feeling stressed and out of control. In this episode, I...

Ep 056: Stay productive, not busy

9/6/2018
More
Busy is the new fine. How many times do you answer "BUSY!" when someone asks how you are. Not, "Wonderful. Lovely. Super excited for this life. Peaceful. Calm. Wishing I had a taco right now." No, instead, it's "Really busy." Mel Robbins said it best when she truthfully bombed us with, "Business is the ultimate form of laziness. Staying busy is our way of avoiding the things we really need to do." I've committed my life to being full and productive, not busy. I want to fill my minutes...

Ep 055: How I'm embracing a new season in my life (and an announcement on what's coming up!)

8/30/2018

I'm right at the edge of a brand new season in my life and for our family; a season unlike any I have had in the past. This season is one of change in the form of kids entering new schools and me having more time. Don't be fooled. More time isn't always a good thing. More time just means more time to waste if we're not intentional with it. This episode is all about how I'm embracing this new season and how you can do the same, with whatever season life has for you now. Change can feel scary...

Ep 054: How to tell if you're making excuses (so you can finally stop!)

8/23/2018
More
Excuses, excuses. We're all full of them, and after a while it can become difficult to tell the difference between our excuses and reality. Excuses are very different than explanations. Excuses keep us victims of our own circumstances. For years, I made excuses for why I wasn't able to get things done the way other people could in various parts of my life. My excuses kept me stuck, but comfortable. This episode is a kick in the butt for anyone that wants to break free of the excuse-making...

Rather than bring on an expert in a particular field, I invited real moms with real struggles to come on the show to share with us what they are going through in motherhood and at home. Sometimes, just hearing another mom ask a question that you've always had is exactly the thing you need to motivate you toward change and improvement.

I can't believe it's already time to do a back-to-school episode, but here we are. Time, it is a flyin' always. I know that most moms start the year off with the year off with the best of intentions. "This is the school year that I get our collective ish organized and staying that way!" and then by mid-October, you're in full-on chaos mode and not sure how you got there.

It's the cleaning supplies episode! There are 1001 different brands, supplies and tools out there, so how do you decide what is best? I spent 11 years in the house cleaning business doing the hard work of researching which supplies and tools worked best for most homes. Now, I'm giving you my favorites. Will all of these work for you? Maybe not. This is based on my own opinion and what I've found gives you the most bang for your buck. Your caddy doesn't need to be overflowing with cleaning...
