SURPRISE! We are back for a special BONUS episode, and we're talking all about going after what you want and doing things for YOU. In both business and motherhood, it’s so important to focus on yourself and to do what is best for you in order to pave your own path, move forward and achieve success (whatever success means to you).
And that's why being a #FabFitFunPartner is the perfect fit for us, because anything that allows women to treat themselves, and puts a smile on their face, and offers value - that's what we're all about.
FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box that offers full size beauty, fashion, home, fitness and wellness products (worth over $200+) for only $49.99 a box.

TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:
Social media is an amazing thing but it's also a really hard thing because you see everyone else doing and being and achieving and you're sitting there watching. And you don't want to watch, you want to do.
For all the entrepreneurs out there, your eyes are always looking at everybody else to see what's working. It's natural. There is nothing wrong with being inspired by other people, but if you are looking around and it seems like everybody is doing what you've been doing for a while, it's time to make the next move.
We want to reach more moms, but we want to give them value and an experience, and I think in business that is forgotten. In business, if you can put aside strictly numbers and think about why you're doing what you do, it will lead you to success. If you want it and you love it, then other people will love it too.
If you're in the business rut - which means you don't know what your next move is, you don't feel like you're successful, you feel like you've been grinding but you don't know how to change the game, you feel like everyone around you is succeeding - often this feeling of anxiety comes from not knowing what's next.
What's success anyways? For some people it's setting a goal, crushing the goal and then setting another goal. The two of us have never set a goal, so maybe that's a problem. We don't have goals, we go wherever life takes us. Some people need goals and some people are intuitive people.
I don't know if it's an insult or a compliment when people are like "I can't believe what you've done!" I don't think anyone expected much for us at all. When we started this, I think people kinda rolled their eyes, but we worked our asses off like it was going to be something.
If you're struggling in any way, feeling like you're not enough or you can't do something, fuck that and figure it out. And don't wait for someone to do it for you. No one is showing up at your door and handing anything to you on a platter.
If you're an entrepreneur, stop sitting there and waiting for someone to show up and do something for you. No one has opened a door for us, no one has turned a key for us. People have taken chances on us, but that's because we put ourselves out there to allow people to take the chance. It's because we made the chance possible for them to take a chance on us. Everything we've done, we've earned.
So many women, and so many moms especially, don't do anything for themselves. Even when they come to a live show, they feel guilty walking out the door, they feel guilty about having fun, they feel guilty about missing bedtime even though they've done it every day for 15 years. So for us, we want women to leave us feeling good and feeling like they have permission to have fun, so that's why this mission is so important to us.
As a mom, we figure everything out. Don't ever underestimate the power of your motherhood. We're a strong culture. So take some of the time that you dedicate to your kids and do something for yourself to fill up your bucket. Do something that makes you happy or maybe try something new.
