How to Stay Inspired

Let's face it, there is a ton of negativity in the world.  It's easy to get sucked into it and it will happen if you are not consciously aware of what and who you are surrounding yourself with.

How to stay inspired is something that I questioned myself.  I know that can be a challenge for some people especially when there is so much negativity floating around.

In this blog post, I wanted to share 4 simple tips that I have applied to my life that not only keep me inspired, but also empower me.  They are simple.  They may be common knowledge for you but for the most part, may not be common practice.

1. Quiet Time for Yourself

This is an important one for me because as soon as the kids are up and the day starts, quiet time is a challenge.  Rather than try to find time when everyone else is awake, I find the time when everyone else is still asleep.

I get up early so that I can have some time to myself.  I use this time in a variety of ways...to...

Jessica Kohn - Special OM-casions featured on Mompreneur Tube

mompreneur tube Apr 24, 2017

I'm just having a blast with these interviews!  Each mom is so very talented and has great information to share with all of you mompreneur and future mompreneurs.

Jessica Kohn is the owner of Special OM-casions. She has a unique business model in that she brings yoga to a variety of locations such as your home, workplace and special events. Jessica takes yoga out of the studio and brings it to you.. This idea didn't come to her immediately. It took some time to evolve into what it is today.

Yoga wasn't the career choice that she initially had. However, yoga has been a significant part of her life for many years even throughout her pregnancy.

After Jessica's second daughter was born, she was looking for a way to contribute to her family outside of being a mom. A question that she asked herself was, 'If I could do 1 thing for the rest of my life, what would it be?". Her answer: Yoga.

Content Marketing Tip for Mompreneurs

As an entrepreneur that is trying to build a business online, you want to have content that your follower will benefit from some way.  This can be content that you created or other content that you are sharing.

How do you accumulate a steady flow of valuable content that you provide your followers?

And how do you remember what content you want to share?

Here's a content marketing tip for all you mompreneurs that I use all the time.  

Always be a student and a learner. As you read books, listen to audios, watch videos, jot down different points that you can apply and create content around.

For example, when I am reading a book, I jot the page number on a post it and I leave it at the beginning of the book.  When I'm looking for content, I pick up the book, go that page number and refresh my memory about it.  Now I'm ready to create some content.

Other times I will write notes on a piece of paper and leave it in the book.  Same thing...when I am ready to...

Do You Have the Mindset of a 10 Year Old

Do you have the mindset of a 10 year old?

This lesson from my 10 year old son is a powerful one on so many levels.

While we were in Mexico, there was an archery competition that my son competed in. He entered the competition with the mindset that he was going to win.

I love that he didn't think twice about the fact that there were only a few kids and the rest adults. I love the fact that he didn't analyze the death out of his decision. I love the fact that he just knew he was going to win.

We talked briefly about visualizing the outcome before he began. In addition, we discussed the anticipated and not so anticipated outcome. It was important to do your best regardless of the outcome.

Be sure to watch this video so you know exactly what happened! Pretty Amazing!
