Moments of Mindfulness for Special Needs Moms

Moments of Mindfulness for Special Needs Moms

Do you ever feel overwhelmed with your to do list? Ever feel like you can’t get it all done? The feelings of overwhelm and lack of self care multiplies when you have a nuerodivergent or special needs child.

When I had my son, he spent 16 days in the NICU and from that moment, my whole world changed. Feedings every 3 hours, making sure he had everything he needed, and nights with a heart apnea monitor; my needs didn’t seem so important. And as weeks turned to months, and months turned to years, before I knew it he was 2 and I forgot what it is I even did before motherhood.

It seems to be common among us mothers, we get so good at taking care of others, we forget or neglect our own needs.

In this episode, I talk with Christina Dunbar – a family nurse practitioner, yoga teacher and blogger/podcaster. She is the mom of three kids under the age of 5, one with a rare disorder.

We connected on so many levels in this podcast, from both struggling with stresses of a special needs child, the decision to leave the workplace, and finding moments of mindfulness in the chaos of raising little humans.

Her podcast is the Intentional Ten, where she offers weekly mini episodes of mindfulness and guided journal prompts, so you can start incorporating mindfulness into your day and week.

Finding Purpose After Motherhood

Finding Purpose After Motherhood

Have you ever wondered what your purpose is? Have you seemed to lose your way after motherhood? Or maybe your goals have changed since becoming a mom.

I remember at such a young age, feeling a conflict in my heart on choosing between being a stay at home mom and a career mom. I remember wanting both. In today’s society, it can be difficult to live off of a single income and have the option of not working as a mother. But with modern conveniences, like the internet and social media, we can have the best of both worlds.

There are a lot of options out there to work from home, flex time or being your own boss.

In this episode, I chat with Jenny Beecher, farm wife and mom of three kids. She is a clarity coach for moms trying to find balance between business and living a fulfilling life at home.

In this interview, we talk about:

  • The transition of your place in the workplace to finding your purpose inside and outside of motherhood.
  • Learning to shatter generational and societal programming to what it means to be a mom.
  • Finding your own way and going your own way.

It’s Never Been Easier to Work From Home

It’s Never Been Easier to Work From Home

Do you want to learn how to work from home? Are you feeling stressed working, schooling your kids and running a household? Are you wondering if there is a better way to still work and make money, while staying home with your kids?

Wondering what your thing is and what you can get paid for? In my soul alignment sessions, we take a look at your natal chart and we can talk about how to position yourself, utilize your passions and work experience in a new way that lights you up.

Welcome to the {former} Moms in Business Podcast! It has never been easier to make money from home, cut your work time in half and still make great money. In this episode, Misty gives you 3 simple things you need to get started working from home.

Some things we talk about in this episode:

  • How to turn your experience to an online business
  • How to get started without a website
  • How to find customers on social media
  • Steps to get started making money on social media

 

One day, I was in the kitchen, getting ready to walk out the door, for work, as I did Monday thru Friday. My son was two, at the time, and was sobbing for me not to leave him – again. I cried my eyes out the entire 30 minute commute. Why is this so hard?

I remember sitting inside of my cubicle, wondering if there was a way to work from home. A longing to spend more time with my son, I was determined to find a better way to make money – that didn’t mean me sacrificing my duties as a mother.

If you are anything like me – you are independent, ambitious, and probably love your work. However, you also love to be a mom, you love to be there for your kids. I felt like by the time I got home, picked my son up from daycare, made dinner, it was bedtime, and I barely had any time for myself – let alone time to connect with my child.

It has never been easier to work from home, than it is today.

Over the years, I found many ways to make extra money from home. Here are a few I’ve done:

  • Virtual Assistant
  • In home daycare provider
  • Network Marketing

 

What does it take to work from home?

You don’t need a website, you don’t need a fancy sales funnel.

There are a few things you need – if you want to work from home.

1. Knowing what you will be paid for

What are you good at? What will someone pay you for? What is some result that you could help someone get? There are thousands of people working online, now and in different capacities. Personal trainers can work over zoom. Administrative assistants can help small business owners. Teachers can become private tutors. The options are only as endless as your imagination. Let’s start brainstorming in this free workbook – Discover Your Brilliance.

2. Helping people find you

People need a way to find you or you need a place to send them to learn more about what you do and how you can help them. That could be a website, or you could start with your social media. So many eyeballs are already on Facebook, they’re on Instagram, they’re already on YouTube, AND they are looking for a solution. I am willing to bet you have eyeballs on your social media right now. But it just takes you finding and telling people what it is that you do.

3. You need a way to get paid.

There are dozens of ways to get paid online, these days. PayPal is great and very well trusted by many. Venmo, cash app, Square, Stripe –  there’s so many apps right on your phone that you can create an account in minutes and get connected to your bank account. Create a link for people to pay you. Let them know how much you want to be paid, and how and where to send them money. And boom, you’ve got cash in the bank.

And working from home has been a game changer for me, my health and being able to stay home with my kids.

Even when I was an in home childcare provider, I still found all my clients online –  I created a free website on Weebly, I created a free profile on Care.com and joined various Facebook groups for those looking for childcare.

I shared behind the scenes of what I was doing with my daycare kids and my own kids on my personal profile. And soon, I had potential clients reaching out to me to see if I had any openings.

Everyone has value. There are some things you are really good at and there are people who will pay you to do it for them.

Are you wondering what it is you may do? How you could be paid to work from home? In this free workbook, we go through your many talents, hobbies and experiences to create a cash flow business.
