  1. I don't often wish I were a man, but when I do it's because I want to be able to pee outside (how cool would that be on an out-of-the-way bike ride?!) or I want a wife I see all the big CEO guys and think, "I could do that if I had a wife to take care of all the other stuff!" But truth be told, I don't want a "wife" to mother my kiddos and take care of my house. (Though someone to do the laundry and schedule the appointments might be nice.) As unique women, we bring our amazing gifts to ALL areas of our lives, including our businesses. And in busy seasons, it's easy to forget that we're not just building a business; we're building an integrated life we love. So while Mr. Big Shot CEO is compiling his list of mergers and NYC ad campaigns, our wins look smaller. But we know that our work is enduring and that we're growing and building great things — even though it's sometimes easy to forget. So let's intentionally remember. In your efforts to build a life you love, how are you winning this week? I can hardly wait to hear!
  2. These are GREAT take-aways! Thanks for sharing, @Kristen Smith
  3. Hi! I'm a business without a business (yet). I love to help women tame their mind mosquitoes using scripture and the science of how God made us. One of my struggles: my eyes are too big for my plate. 😉 Cheri Gregory has an analogy about plate size, and my plate size is small (due to a full time day job + the way I interact with my family + my own personality), but I want to fill it like I'm at an all-you-can-eat buffet that closes in 10 minutes. But my biggest struggle is not that I can't make progress, or don't recognize the progress, or even that I get discouraged at the slowness (though I do sometimes). My biggest struggle is, in the midst of the slowness, I lose so much time & energy picking myself back up. In addition to the hurdle of getting back into the work, I spend too much time re-motivating myself and re-convincing myself that my plan is sound (and that I’m the one to do it). Working on it, though.
  4. Hey there! Whether you're moving slow and steady for a season or the tortoise is part of your temperament, welcome!! Introduce yourself, please! Tell us about your business and your biggest struggle. Can't wait to cheer each other on!
  5. I'm still in the middle of it, but it's all very exciting to see the specific place I can help my readers based on my knowledge & gifts, and their needs. It makes so much sense to find my exact niche instead of trying to be all the things to all the people (and never be quite right at any of it). Now I get to be me and help folks in my particular way, based on their actual needs. Win-win. SO cool! Best feeling so far: I was at a speaker's conference giving an impromptu talk shortly after I'd recognized my niche. Afterwards, one of the other attendees said, "Girl, I am buying everything you have in the back of the room — so hurry up and make some products to sell." Not only have I found my target market, but I could actually make products that they'll love. Wow! Big boost! (And you'd better believe I got on a Zoom call with her later to find out more about her needs! 😉)
