Mompreneurs: Rise Up!

I have noticed a recent trend. Moms are supporting other moms in their goals and endeavors. They are dreaming big and their businesses are successful. Mom owned companies and non-profits are on the rise.

Further, moms are joining online networks and support groups where they share wisdom and learn from each other. They are also joining groups to mingle with like minds at coffee shops and breweries. Together, they discover what works in business and what might not. Business cards are passed around and mental notes are made about organizations they may work with in the future.

Online businesses run by moms are trending as well. Whether moms are using Instagram or Facebook to create their brand, they are getting creative at promoting online.

Do you see where I am going with this?

With mom owned businesses on the rise, now is the time to cheer each other on and help each other succeed. How can we encourage the success of other moms? Hire moms to help you in your own company. For example, hire a friendly mom photographer to help promote your business. Hire your favorite mom web designer. You might also choose to promote your business on a mom blog network that will catch the eyes of other moms such as the one I write for, San Diego Moms Blog.

I for one, am glad that moms are not sitting around gossiping about other moms. I’m excited to see the trend of moms reaching towards their business goals and supporting each other in the process.

Do you have a business idea, but aren’t quite sure where to begin?

Why not hire a mom who has her own life coach practice to help you move forward? Hire a mom who knows social media to aid in your online presence. Whatever you do, don’t stay stuck. Now is the time to reach for your dreams. The Mom Tribe is ready and willing to help. Reach out. Ask questions. Let’s do this thing together!

Don’t you love a team effort?

Together, we learn. Together we grow. Together, we win!

Like Never Before

My youngest son found a tiny acorn on a recent hike. I took a picture because I love  what the acorn represents. Potential. New Life. Growth. Possibility. Greatness.

In fact, I envision a huge oak tree with glorious roots that last for generations. I see the potential for new life and huge possibilities in the little acorn.

Are you aware of the miracle of the acorn?

The acorn falls to the ground in the autumn months and takes root during the winter. The larva within the acorn is jolted from it’s shell and begins to create roots within the soil. Few acorns grow to fruition as there are many obstacles that can cause the process to end. Animals may choose the acorn as cuisine. The acorn may become too soft or rot before it can grow. Whatever the reason, few take root. If the acorn survives and takes root, it must dig it’s way 5 feet deep into the soil! And if it survives, takes root, and grows into a mighty oak tree: generations of future trees, animals, and people will glean of it’s magnificent and full glory! 

Oh, to be like the acorn!

To grow through obstacles. To become our potential. To plant deep, yet healthy roots. To bring forth new life. To create a legacy that lasts generations.

The potential is there. For all of us. Sometimes, it simply takes an acorn to show us the way. To serve as a reminder of who we are and who’s we are. To remind us that our potential is great and that our Heavenly Father is cheering us on in every one of our endeavors.

It’s never too late to BE MORE like never before. It’s never to late to be like the acorn. To grow deep roots and create a legacy for our children and future generations. As children of God, we have been commissioned as a team. Each of us has a unique purpose and an incredible plan for our lives. And what’s absolutely amazing is that each unique purpose serves as a piece to a puzzle, creating the overall grand and complete picture of greatness.

Did you catch that?

Our unique purpose works in harmony with every other plan and purpose within the universe. We have been given a creative mind that works congruent with other creative minds.

Breath that in!

How great to know that we are never in competition with one another, but rather, created to be a team. Together, we learn. Together, we grow. Are you catching the vision? Do you see your potential?

What dreams have you placed aside for a season? Do you have a vision and a plan to pursue them? What is stopping you? 

The time is now! Let’s GO!
