PODCAST: Everything We Do Stems From A Purpose
In this week's episode, we're talking all about women and moms being successful in business. We also share details about our new, super fun Virtual VIP event. And this is the second episode where we didn't go into the gutter! (...until the end.)
TOP QUOTES FROM THIS PODCAST:
Everything we do stems from a purpose. We're not just trying to make more money. If you did it just for money, you'd burn out, get bored or move on. It wouldn't be enough.
At the same time, we can't just do what we do for free. When we take time away from our families and our children, there has to be an exchange.
At the end of the day, our mission is always the same and it came from a need that we had as moms. We didn't have that connection and that support system we needed in motherhood, so we created it for ourselves and for all of you.
Everything we do is about informing you, making you feel like you’re a part of something, and giving you permission to be the best mom you can be - whatever version that is. And being “the best mom” is not something you can attain, it's something you feel.
If you go back to every single thing we've done, everything we've offered you guys, it has always been something that we felt we needed or wanted.
There was a time when a man told us not to share anything but the motherhood side of this journey because if we did, we'd no longer be relatable to women. We were told that if we shared the business side, it would take us out of this sphere of motherhood, because when you see a women who is successful, apparently she can't be a mother too. When a women appears to be successful, it discredits her as a mother. But the business side is such a big part of our life, and if we're trying to be honest, then we have to share everything.
We can be silly moms on a couch and also be running a successful business, and that's okay. It’s honest to share all of that.
I hate the word authenticity, I hate the word relatable, I hate all those words because they represent something that doesn't actually exist. I'm relatable to some, but I'm unrelatable to others - that's a fact. I don't think we have to be relatable, I think we have to be us.
It's okay to ask for what you deserve and what you want. You may not get it right then and there, but it's important to put yourself out there and have a voice.
As a mom, we all do it differently, but we all feel the exact same. We all love our kids the exact same.
Before you go and judge another mother, realize she has the same fears, hopes, dreams, and love for her kids as you do for your kids.
When we started out as moms, we judged the different ways moms did things due to our own immaturity and lack of experience in motherhood. When you judge, it also comes from an internal insecurity because you want to believe you're doing the best for your kid. You want to believe that if a women is doing it totally different than you, she must be doing it wrong, because if she was doing it right, then you should be doing it too.
