Was chatting with another creative professional (felt like I was being interviewed..😂🙈) and they posed the question “You must be swamped with weddings every weekend since it’s the summer and peak season.” I simply replied “No. Actually I’m not!” Of which afterwards there was an awkward “i’m sorry” kind of silence 😂. The truth is I shared I started looking at my business model and saw that I needed it to change so that I do not have to work a wedding nor have a wedding booked every weekend. That’s not what really what I desire anymore at this stage of business (being 7 years into the biz). I started projecting and forecasting and learning how to scale my business a few years back knowing that I wanted more time with my family, start to explore, dive deeper, and expand the education and coaching part of my business (more to come on that 😉) and the only way that would happen is if I laid changed the structure of the biz, laid a plan, and then worked it! I encourage you to do the same! If you want to see your business transform from what it is now to what you know it can be or desire for it to be. Start projecting and forecasting now! Don’t worry about failing just make sure you aren’t in the same place you are today, tomorrow! 💫💫💫💫💫💫 #transformationtuesday #transformyourbusiness #theeventmama #project #forecast

A client asked me yesterday during a phone call, “do you really love what you do? I mean, do you actually wake up and are happy with what you do?”
Although she couldn’t see, I had the biggest smile on my face when I heard her ask me because I can proudly say that yes, yes I truly love my life.
It isn’t the trips, the opportunities or even the money that makes me love doing this.
It’s the fact that I hit rock bottom the very first year I quit the corporate world, which taught me to be resilient and tested my determination.
It’s all those “no’s” I received from brands who didn’t think I was ready, which forced me to work 10x harder and to stay persistent.
It’s having people walk out of my life and having to walk out of theirs because we outgrew each other, but realizing this is what self growth is about.
It’s the lessons that I continue to learn from running my own business, to pushing my creative boundaries and comfort zone, and being able to share these realities with you so you guys don’t have to repeat my mistakes.
But most of all, I love what I do because of the fact that I’ve had the most intimate conversations with complete strangers who somehow decided to trust me enough to come and talk to me about their problems. It’s being able to inspire, to motivate, and to help others find their strength and courage to chase their passions as well. And to be able to connect worldwide with people off a platform, make new friends, and work with brands that I truly believe in .. that is why I love what I do and I do not regret ever leaving my 9-to-5 to pursue this.
It wasn’t easy but nothing worthwhile is right?
Now if you need me, I’ll be typing away because I’m about 6 blog posts behind and need to have everything published by Friday 😂 #istilllovemyjobtho
Product Highlight: This is, hands down, my favorite product. I have many favorites, but this is #1
. All skin types and concerns need this product. See my stories for more info 👆🏻
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
BEAUTYCOUNTER TESTS EVERY BATCH | beware, this is not the norm
Fact: Beautycounter sends out every batch of color cosmetics for heavy metal testing. Why? Heavy metal exposure, be it acute or long term, is likely to lead to harm....and it is standard in the beauty industry to have heavy metals in products (thanks to all those “natural” pigments used for color that we love oh so much) making testing crucial.
It’s standard for cosmetic companies to skip formulating their products to minimize heavy metal contamination, and they typically don’t test for heavy metals or declare them on ingredient labels. Why would they? The findings certainly wouldn’t help their business. And it’s expensive to do things the right way 🙈
Beautycounter sent off other brands to test for heavy metals and the worst offenders were natural/organic brands. This is a huge issue since it’s estimates women eat on average 7 pounds of lipstick in their lifetime. Heavy metals are extremely hard, if not impossible, to detox out of your system....choosing safer products is wise. And you won’t be disappointed with the performance of Beautycounter!
Finally, we don’t have to sacrifice performance or our health in the name of safe beauty.

Floral on flowers 💐
The monochromatic look of this floral pattern is so simple and sleek.
The versatility of this cover is what makes it a mom-must-have:
🚗Baby car seat cover (sun and wind protection) .
🤱🏻Nursing cover (keep baby focused) .
🛒 Shopping cart cover (germ barrier) .
🧣Baby blanket (extra warmth).
💩 Change pad (conveniently timed diaper changes 🙄) .
🤭 Burp cloth (mommy clothing protection)
Mamas on the move!🚘 ✈️
Like so many moms, nursing in public was a major stressor with my first baby. It took a good 3 weeks for us to actually master a decent latch with a nipple shield! #latepremie
So we didn’t get out much for the 1st month. And when we did leave the house I went into full panic mode when my little sugar plum started doing her hunger wiggle. 🔊Red alert!! Where are going to nurse, repeat, where are we going to nurse?!?!?! 🔊
So I would run out to my car or hide in a dressing room fumbling around with my shield trying to get my now screaming baby to latch.🙄👶
And I just keep thinking what do others moms do? Is anyone else going through this? I knew there had to be, but I couldn’t see my fellow boob buddies! And I’m sure there were plenty of them wandering around Target just like me. .
When I did find out that another mom was a current or past breastfeeder I was so happy and relieved! I didn’t feel alone anymore. Someone else totally understood! Phew!
There’s been tons of improvements for nursing moms such as nursing areas in stores, airports, workplaces. And social media has expanded our support networks immensely, thank goodness! But for me and maybe lots of you, nothing can replace the personal validation and connection that comes from in person chats with other mamas! 💕 Those moments fill my cup and boost my spirit!
My dream is that the Honor Mama badge will be a prolific image in our society. That it will build connections between mamas in breastfeeding trenches and those whose journey ended many years ago. That our amazing breastfeeding community will become more visible. .
I hope you will join me on my quest!
Wear you badge, be proud, and be seen! ⠀⠀
Tag 2 friends for a chance to win an Honor Mama water bottle and vinyl badge! 🎉🤱
Winner will be announced tomorrow at 9pm cst!!!

🐞Working from home is such a blessing! When I started sharing about oils, my goal was to get my oils paid for each month. As I continue helping others get started on their own oily journey, it has become much more than that. I love all of the families that I have been able to connect with, because of these oils. I love that so many lives have been touched and changed, because of a vision that one man had. 🐞With my Oily business, this year I was able to pay for my Convention ticket and it is beginning to bless our family in so many other ways. 🐞At Convention, on Friday we heard from Eric Worre. Some of the things that he said have hugely impacted my heart. Here are a few of his quotes. "Most people are trained to think like an employee, not an entrepreneur." "Entrepreneurs think of work as creation, as passion." "In the beginning you will be underpaid, then you will be fairly paid, then you will get overpaid for a long period of time(residual income)." 🐞This business is work, but it isn't hard. It's no different than sharing about any other product you love, but Young Living pays you to do it. I love that I am able to work from home and contribute to our family in new ways. I can't wait to see what God's plans are for the rest of 2018! #myoffice #workfromhome
🐞Because I talked about money, I have included the Income Disclosure Statement in the comments.
See if you notice the difference...🤔 💁🏻 I can't start an at-home business because I don't have the extra time/freedom working full time, going to school or raising babies. 💁🏻 I'm starting a home business because I want the extra time/freedom to travel, experience the joys of life, and be able to stay home with my babies.
Do you want the freedom?
I love that my students still refer to Nora as Baby Nora, and I think when Nora is 5, they will probably still call her Baby Nora. And that’s fine. 💕💕

It happened TODAY!!!💫
I met @thebirdspapaya
at an evening for @torontobusinessbabes
My story is fresh, I started my Instagram for Clasp Magic four short months ago.
IG used to make me nervous, and I was hesitant in getting involved in other people’s lives.
BUT, I did... and somehow, I found Sarah’s Instagram, and her story moved me!
A story that was so real and similar to mine in several ways. It motivated me to improve my Instagram, in my own weight loss journey, and in overcoming life’s struggles. Her posts are refreshingly honest and always leave me inspired... every.single.time!!!
So, to meet her tonight and listen to her advice live was AMAZING!
Women helping women ... thank you for blazing the trail with this!
This Instagram world feels a lot less intimidating to me and I have some new tools for improving my feed.
Also, Sarah, you lit up the room tonight!
If you don’t follow @thebirdspapaya
, I highly recommend that you do!
Thanks again for a great night and for so much amazing advice! I’ll take it all 🙌🏻😊!
It doesn’t have to be Wednesday for me to shout out this beautiful woman 😍 Thank you @micheledelacruz
for believing in me and showing me how to be a strong and independent BOSS 👑 to say I’m grateful for you and everything you stand for is an understatement!! What started off as friends from high school to gettin’ our grown woman on to take care of our families... You’ve become one of my biggest supporters and easily have become my family! There’s so much in store for us, our children and our futures!
I cannot wait to travel the world with you 🌏⭐️
My favorite wall in the #house
