Dear Mothers… It’s Confusing I Know!

Ladies! Ladies! Ladies!
 
I want you to listen to me!!!
 
I want you to stick with me…
 

Where are you at in life?

 
What do you want to achieve in life?
 
Where do you want to make an impact?
 
Rephrase… your next big impact???
 
You’re a mum… you probably wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t.
 
Your kids are getting older… they no longer need you like they used to…
 
They’re more independent… maybe they even have a job… either way, they have a life aside from you…
 
When you see them move through their stages of life do you look at them in amazement… at how they are growing and developing into amazing humans… and it’s all because of you!!!
 
It is… it’s because of you…
 
Whether you brought them into this world or they came into your life… whether you raised them on your own or as a partnership, whether they left and have come back… there is no doubt you had a big impact on who they are today…
 
And that’s not going to stop!!!
 
You see you are amazing too!!!
 
Now that you’ve watched those around you move through the stages of life… what about you?
 
Where are you at in life?
 
What do you want to achieve in life?
 
How will you impact the world?…
 
I’ve got a lot more living to do and I know you do too…
 
To be honest the person I’ve just described is pretty much me too…
 
I asked myself for a long time… What will I do with my life?
 
I wasn’t particularly happy running a building company… don’t get me wrong, I loved designing houses and I loved my clients… but I wasn’t totally fulfilled… I knew that at some time something was going to change
 
Slowly it came to me…
 
I was the mums at school that drew me in… I was saddened by constantly hearing ‘If only…’ or ‘if I had my time again I wouldn’t be doing this but that is what life has dealt me’
 
I knew it didn’t have to be that way
 
It was like I took it upon myself to change this conversation.
 
Mums are leaders… they are the ones that will make the biggest difference to the next generation, the decisions of the generations to come and that’s on a totally different scale to ‘mum’… but…
 
That’s where my journey began…
 
It didn’t come easily
 
I didn’t have the confidence make a big shift quickly
 
Nor did I think people would trust me in a new career…
 
I didn’t think I was worthy…
And I felt like an imposter…
 
I waivered many times and almost gave up…
 
But those voices in my head just didn’t go away… they just got louder…
 
I had no choice but to take the next step.
 
Next problem… what was the next step?
 
I asked people that question for years… what is the next step
 
And then I realised I was looking too deep… the answer was simply within the language of those mothers
 
They told me what they needed and that’s what I delivered
 
All of a sudden I was no longer ‘I’… I became ‘WE’

 
We have so much to give with so many experiences, knowledge, stories and love.
 
I wish I could explain to you right now how to work it out, how to discover exactly what your path will be but my words just won’t do it justice…
 
Just start with a conversation… actually many conversations… conversations with friends, with other women and conversations with you…
 
And be aware of the learnings from those conversations.
 
I realised this morning that I talk about tools and apps and productivity a lot.
 
I love those topics… they fascinate me but what I also realised was that the most important thing for you right now is firstly, to find your confidence to take the next step and secondly, knowing where to start.
 
To be honest… I have the systems…
 
I can tell you about planning, strategies, systems, automation tools, time-saving tools and habits, how to attract clients and how to keep business simple…
 
But if I know you…
 

That’s not what you need right now…

You need guidance and support to simply take the next step

 
Remember….
 
You’re never too old to start something new…
 
You’re definitely smart enough…
 
You have the experience…
 
Actually… you’re probably sitting on a goldmine of wisdom without even realising it
 
I’m here to tell you can do it… and…
 
I’m here to show you how
