Hello, Self-Made Mama School! I’ve learned SO MUCH from the time management tools and supportive learning community of real moms who GET IT.
For starters, I’ve been a part of the Self Made Mama Success System since the summer. It’s helped me create a better work flow and manage my time balancing parenting, working full time and this blogging side-hustle.
Yes, I’ve already had a lot of education in the past… but trust me– there’s a HUGE difference between being a teacher and an entrepreneur. The learning curve has been a steep one, and I had no idea how to negotiate contracts with confidence or handle the barrage of requests that I work for free product instead of money.
I’ve learned how to be real with my numbers, set clear priorities and boundaries and make tangible impact with my actions. Melissa has always been super present, practical and provided hands-on help when I’ve needed it.
This program also empowered me to say NO to way more things than I say YES to. I can’t tell you how freeing this is. It’s really helped me prioritize the few things I DO decide to take on.
Besides, I’m a life-long learner and always like to have something new on the go.
In addition to the the course content, one of the best parts of the program is the supportive community. These honest, down to earth mompreneurs who GET what I’m doing. I’ve shared before that as my blog has grown, many of my old friends and family haven’t been all that supportive.
Having the opportunity to connect with these women has given me a boost in confidence and also provided motivation to keep on going when things get tough.
Now that I’ve completed the Success System, I look forward to accessing the trainings in SEO, blog-writing, social media, DIY graphics and accessing the Template Toolbox to add an extra kick to my business… not to mention connecting with the new members of the Self-Made Mama School!
