Episode #225: Success on our own Terms

Mar 16, 2023

What does success mean to you? While every entrepreneur is seeking it, we all have different definitions of what success means for us. For many, it can mean hitting a specific monthly or yearly revenue goal. For some, it can mean being able to work from a beach for half the year. And for others, it can mean building up a roster of dream clients or having more time to spend with the family.

Our version of success should reflect our own needs, goals, and values, not a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all ideal.

In this episode, I speak with three incredible members of the Mamas & Co. community, each with a completely different business, story, and journey — and in this fascinating conversation, they share their unique experiences and versions of success!

From finding the right balance between feeling comfortable and feeling brave, to ensuring that actions are aligned with values, we explore how each of these amazing mompreneurs has built a fulfilling and profitable business… and how the Mamas & Co. community has helped them along the way!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • Why so many women struggle with the idea creating success on their own terms — and how limiting ideas of what entrepreneurship means can hold us back
  • How having a supportive community can help to banish imposter syndrome
  • Why we need to cultivate the courage to overcome the mom guilt and focus on our own self care and dreams
