Business BLAB - DIY Maternity Leave For Entrepreneurs

As an entrepreneur, taking an extended maternity leave with both of my children has been such a blessing, but for some it can seem impossible. Today I want to talk about how I planned my maternity leave, and what I’m doing to transition back into boss mode!

Business BLAB - How Gratitude Fuels Your Business
Business BLAB - How Gratitude Fuels Your Business
Hello my friends! Yes, it is that time of year where we are all focusing a little more on the things that we are grateful for. Now, this is something I *try* to do year round, but there is nothing like thanksgiving time and the holiday season to remind us that we have so much to be grateful for. As I was thinking about my gratitude practices and how important they are, not only for my mental health, but for my business, I had an ah-ha moment about how much of my business is really fueled by gratitude and how I truly think the more grateful you are, the better your business will be! So, let’s talk about it! How Gratitude Fuels Your Buisness Mental Health Confidence  Community Karma  So what do you think? How much of your business is fueled by gratitude?

HBD Flash Back - Toxic Family Relationships
HBD Flash Back - Toxic Family Relationships
We are excited to share our MOST LISTENED TO EPISODE of all time! Originally aired in September of 2020, this episode takes us back to the personal hardships that the year 2020 exposed that many of us are still dealing with today. What an interesting look back into the past with guest Amanda Tento! Enjoy!  With all the challenges and division 2020 has brought, relationships with our loved ones can become challenging, to say the least. But how do we handle these relationships when they become toxic? On this episode the Boss Ladies are joined by the inspiring -Amanda Tento- to talk about how to navigate toxic relationships 🙌 Amanda shares her family’s experience with racism, divide in her family and close circle, and how she handles relationships when they become toxic. We answer some tough questions like do you keep quiet and not make waves in your relationships? Or do you speak up for what’s right and risk the relationship? And what do you do if you can’t get to a healthy place of disagreement? We also talk about how a difference in opinion is ok, but how to spot when it becomes toxic. With the upcoming election, the pandemic, and as the Black Lives Matter movement continues, more of us may be spotting these relationships in our lives. This episode will help you learn how to set boundaries with the people in your life and with the added challenges that makes mommin’ even harder in 2020😬 Big thank you to Amanda for being so open and honest, and sharing her stories 💖 The Determined Mom Podcast thedeterminedmom.libsyn.com/  🎉It's our 4th Birthday and we want to celebrate with a giant GIVEAWAY! 🎉 We will be drawing every week to give away copies of my books (The Millennials' Guide for Working Parents), customer Boss Lady swag, discounts to BLAB HQ, and more!  Sign up here https://view.flodesk.com/pages/612ec5ee876c79b782e68a6 Join Boss Ladies and Babies HQ- https://megangillespie.podia.com/boss-ladies-and-babies-headquarters

Business BLAB - Q4 Crunch Time
Business BLAB - Q4 Crunch Time
Well boss ladies, here we are a month into Q4… and if you’re anything like me you are feeling the pressure. Since I took a good chunk of time off for maternity leave I’m having to work really hard not to go into overdrive and do too much to try to make those last Q4 and 2022 goals happen for me. But, I was thinking about it, and it isn’t necessarily maternity leave to blame for feeling this way. This is a pretty common feeling that I, and many women I work with, face every year. Time off or not. Now if you look back on some of our past episodes you will find tons of content on how to plan your quarter, how to make goals, and all the things it takes to “plan and execute a great quarter”, but what happens when you’re feeling the pressure? When those goals and plans seem too far out of reach and the clock is ticking? How can you really buckle down and get things done vs spiraling into overwhelm when you look at your lingering to-dos? My answer to this… choose focus. I’m going to share some of my tips to stay focused and not let the end of year pressure take me down! Choose ONE Focus For The Quarter Honor Your Life’s Season Give Yourself A Quarter Review Don’t Be Afraid To Edit Your Goals Implement Some Office Hours/Themes How is Q4 going for you?

Business BLAB - Setting Business Boundaries
Business BLAB - Setting Business Boundaries
Today we are going to talk about something big... boundaries. With summer in full swing, it’s crucial that we understand our priorities, and get some boundaries in place for both life and business.  Boundaries are the most important thing that we can do for ourselves and our businesses to stay sane, avoid overwhelm, and take complete control of our time and energy sot that we can do everything we want to do. Setting boundaries with ourselves, our families, our children, our friends, AND our business are major boss lady goals. Today, we are going to focus on the biz boundaries, because as much as we want to be present with our families this time of year, the one thing we don't want to happen is to get off track in our businesses. Or, on the other hand, get stuck with our businesses consuming too much time. So let’s get into how I set boundaries for my business. Set Office Hours Don’t let emails and notifications rule your life Put down the phone and limit screen time Learn to say no to opportunities Stop explaining yourself I want to hear from you! What boundaries are you setting in your business?

I’m here to tell you, time blocking will change your life… AND it does not have to be what you think it is.

Especially Instagram… but really, just social in general. Everyone is trying to keep up with the trends, the influencers, create the perfect strategy, “beat” the algorithm… and at the end of it all, we end up losing ourselves trying to create this professional and trendy image. Oftentimes, we end up building our entire brand around who we think we need to be, which only holds us back! One thing that has always been super important to me is being REAL on social media, being vulnerable, being true to who YOU are, and building your entire brand around that… around YOU. This is such a scary thing for so many people, and so many people have a hard time wrapping their head around the idea of how this works. If you’ve been with me for a while, you’ve heard me talk about some of the objections I hear like: “But I’m building a business, I want people to see me as a professional”, or “what does my life have to do with what I’m selling”. A recent (favorite) objection I’ve heard was “I’m a professional building my business. I’m not going to plaster my page in puppies and babies because I’m here to build my business”... Yikes. For me, puppies and babies are a huge part of who I am! And that’s how I’ve built my successful businesses. So, today we are going to get into a few tips to help you show up as who YOU are on social media AND continue to build the brand and business you’ve dreamt of!

Business BLAB - Scaling Back For Summer
Summer is coming! And while I’m gearing up for maternity leave, many of you are likely gearing up for your kids to be home all summer long. I just got notice that my daughter’s preschool is closing an entire month early and not reopening next year, so that has been a fun plot twist… Summer is a time where we want to, and are sometimes forced to, slow down a bit and enjoy the ins and outs of life and motherhood. And as wonderful as it is to have our kiddos home, it can drastically change how we operate our businesses. For a lot of us, this might mean scaling back, or at least shifting how we do things. So let’s talk about how to make this happen without losing our minds! These tips work great if you’re planning on taking some time off, going on vacation, slowing down your schedule, or any variety of shifting to a slower pace for any amount of time!

Business BLAB - Managing Your Mental Health
Business BLAB - Managing Your Mental Health
We are shifting gears a little this week to talk about something that really does play a big part in our businesses, and sometimes we may not necessarily realize it. Mental health. Being an entrepreneur comes with all kinds of highs and some really low lows, and keeping our mental health in shape is really crucial for our success. Now, it is no secret that I’m an open book, and mental health is something I feel strongly about being open about. I suffer pretty bad anxiety, occasional depression, and have quite a few OCD tendencies. And there are times where my business directly impacts my mental health, and of course times that mental health impacts my business. So I want to share some ways that I manage my mental health to keep my mind and my business as strong as possible. I’m obviously not a dr, or even an expert on mental health, but this is what works for me!

There is a way to build the business of your dreams AROUND a life you LOVE… and so much of this comes from your business strategy. Let’s talk about how!

Business BLAB - SOPs
Business BLAB - SOPs
This month we are focusing on cleaning up our businesses… or as I like to call it Spring Cleaning Your Business! One of the biggest thing that has helped me clean up my business is getting some solid SOPs in place. You’ve heard me talk about these before, but you may still be wondering “what even is an SOP”... don’t worry, I’m about to break it down for you. SOPs stands for Standard Operating Procedures. So this is basically creating (and sometimes, really just writing down) anything that you do in your business on a regular basis… anything you do on repeat. Your SOP breaks down each step, expectation, and outcome of your every day business tasks. Why do you need these? Because the more plans you have laid out in your business, the easier it is to make sure you don’t miss a step! SOPs lead to ultimate organization! Here are my favorite tips on how to create SOPs for your business, today! Review Your Business Operations Get Detailed On The Steps Of TheProcess Decided Where To Store Your SOP That's it! The SOP opportunities are endless. Do you have SOPs for your business? How have they helped?

How To Be Build A Business With Long Distance Support
How To Be Build A Business With Long Distance Support
Today we are joined by a brilliant and relatable nutritionist, Sophie of What's Good Nutrition.  She believes that the smallest things we do every day create our life and we have such power when it comes to the products and foods that we eat every day, to change things for the better.
