Combining parenthood with working at home.

There has been an evolution of individuals choosing to work at home, to be able to be with their children while making income and having their own careers. It isn’t always easy and there is still much that needs to be balanced, but it is a reality for thousands of men and women that have embraced the entrepreneur spirit in order to take control of their own careers and to have the control over their time to find the balance of rewarding careers with a fulfilled family life.

What are some of the tricks to working at home?

How do you find balance among chaos?

Tune into Journey to Self ~ Thursday February 21st at 12pm cst / 1pm est as my guest Sandra Weber from Work at Home Family Talk Radio as we talk about Parenthood and Working at Home.

February 7th Journey to Self: Keeping the Passion Fires Burning

It was an exciting show today, or as my guest Katherine Reschke would say, “It was FANTABULOUS”

Today Katherine and I talked about how to stay passionate about our passions.

  • Sometimes you need to re-evaluate your passion, let it evolve or check in with your “Why” this is a normal part of the process, don’t get discouraged
  • Networking groups can open doors that you never thought of, remember to open up and allow.
  • Ways to keep yourself motivated:
    • outsource the tasks you dislike
    • use a vision board – you can create your own at
    • use visualization to see your outcomes
    • get the support you need through friends, teachers, mentors, coaches, or a mastermind group. STAY WAY FROM DREAMKILLERS!!
  • Practice good self-care, it makes a difference between success and struggling!!

    Listening to Your Intuition

    We all have that little voice inside us, the one that is suppose to keep us out of trouble and lead us to where we need to be. Problem is that we do not always listen to our inner voice, or trust our instincts.

    Why do we turn right when our intuition says turn left?

    Rebecca White will be joining me on Journey to Self, Thursday January 31 at 12pm cst / 1pm est. We will be talking about ways to allow your intuition to guide you.

    Finding Help and Support

    There are times in our lives that we struggle. It is like pushing a boulder uphill, no matter what we cannot make the progress that we want. There is this sense of having to do it ourselves, of thinking the only way to prove that we have what it takes as a spouse, parent, business owner, is to be a super hero that can handle anything that gets in the way.

    We may think it, we may believe it, but it is not reality.

    The truth is that we don’t have to do it all alone; it is ok to reach out for help. There are crucial times in our live that we need help, we need to seek out those that have the wisdom and the experience to guides us to where we need to be.

    It is not a question of strength and resolve, it’s a matter of learning and allowing the guidance we need to grow, to continue down the path we are suppose to go down.

    Do you need to ask for help, but haven’t?

    Maybe it is because you don’t know what kind of support and help is out there, maybe it is because you don’t know where to go.

    Thursday January 17th at 12pm cst / 1pm est on Journey to Self, I will be talking to licensed professional therapist Nina Quinn and Business Cataylst Jenn Givler about how to find the right support for you. We will be discussing tips on how to overcome not asking for help to how to know the support is right for you.

    No matter what area of your life you are struggling in there is the an answer out there, join us LIVE at to gain the tools you need to get the support you need in all areas of your life.

    If you would like to ask a question during the show you can do so through the chat room found on the Journey to Self Blog Talk Radio page or you can call in on the phone lines (347) 215-8942.

    January 10th Journey to Self: Tips to a Prosperous Life

    WOW!! What a fantastic show with Kim Emerson today, and then Kim and I had the honor of being guest on Rebecca White’s Heal Yourself Talk Radio Show (listen to HYTR Show).

    Kim took us on the journey using great analogies to describe what we need to do along the way to create prosperity in our lives. Here are a few of the highlights of what we discussed:

    • How you treat and care for yourself is hugely important to your success, you need to know that you are worth your dreams. Show yourself that you matter by taking care of yourself and making time for yourself. If you don’t you will run out of gas along the way.
    • Enjoy the journey even the side trips! You never know when an opportunity in disguise will be at your feet.
    • You don’t have to make the journey alone, find the support that is right for you. We mentioned working with coaches, mentors, and joining a group of like minded individuals. Kim runs a fabulous prosperity yahoo group that is filled with support and wonderful people to be with you on your journey.
    • There is always a silver lining to even negative situations, be open to finding them.
    • OPEN UP AND ALLOW, give yourself permission to welcome and allow abundance into your life.
