You're a food blogger wanting to level up in your expertise and content, but don't even have time for what you're doing now. You’re starting to gain momentum in traffic and sponsored work, and forgetting steps or feeling stressed out by all that needs to be done. You've tried other methods and courses, but the fairy-tale of having a studio and a team just didn't line up with reality. Right now, your team consists of you, yourself... and sometimes, maybe a bit of help. You're frustrated with bills and a busy schedule that makes you wonder if you'll ever be consistent with content. You're managing multiple blogs or businesses that you love, and dream at night of finding a system that can pull it all together with ease. You have a steady stream of clients and your own blog ends up on the back-burner. You're done with loosing your sanity and ready to find your passion again. You’re a blogger and a mom - enough said.
You're feeling a lack of balance. You're determined and motivated to press forward but suffer from shiny object syndrome. You're stressed from not having time to do something or thinking you’re forgetting a step. You invest in a baby sitter or get the time and then blank on what you should be working on. You go days without doing anything because it all seems overwhelming and then you feel upset, depressed, or resentful because you’re not working towards your goals. There are multiple faces and facets to your blog and you aren’t sure how to balance them. You desire to give your blog attention and watch it grow, but have no idea what area to focus your efforts everyday. You feel defeated at anything beyond your morning cup of coffee because there are so many things to do to make your dream come true.
Having a system in place to know exactly what you have the time and brain space for. Having a set of standard operating procedures laid out in detail so you can hire a VA with confidence and ease. Being able to batch and create consistent content effortlessly that attracts your ideal audience. Bringing your blog to the next income level by working smarter, not harder. Mapping out your yearly, quarterly, and short-term goals paired with effective daily to-dos that leave you feeling fulfilled and joyful. Following and completing detailed checklists that are designed to scale and prepare you for the next step. Planning that trip to Tahiti with your spouse, or family vacation you've been wanting to take - because the dough is about to roll in!
Wondering why this page seems like the last text message to your spouse or closest friend? Truth is, it's because I've typed every single one to my husband.
I'm a mom of five kids all under the age of 7. We have a running joke that I have a business for each of them, and likely two just to give them options, by the time they're 18.
Like you I have a passion for food, photography, and blogging - and this crazy notion that I could financially support my family doing them! I'm sure I don't have to tell you, but doing all those things as well as household chores, feeding my own soul, and getting actual sleep at night... it's just dang hard y'all!
I was ready to quit. I reached a point that I felt so burnt out by all the ideas, lack of consistency, lack of finances, lack of ability, that I was ready to give it all up and let me family see it. But in the moment of desperation comes our greatest victories.
I was determined and promised myself I wouldn't quit. I would find a way to make it work - to make it all work. I wasn't going to forgo my family for my career, and I wasn't going to submit myself to the stigma of being just a stay at home mom.
That's when I opened up my arsenal. As a military veteran of the United States Coast Guard, I served upon two brand-new ships (and multiple other units), that desperately needed accountability, workflows, and streamlined systems. It was my job to create those and keep the departments of the boat accountable to them to ensure we could operate quickly, safely, and efficiently when needing to do things like save people's lives and bust drug runners - no big deal.
That's when I realized I was in a war of my own. The knock-down, drag-out fight of passion versus fatigue and disappointment. It didn't matter whether I was out numbered....
I was determined to win this time and never look back.
So I reviewed free systems like Google Docs and Trello to cut corners where I could financially and reinvented my dream into a reality with rock-solid, life-changing workflows, systems, and habits that could evolve over time to exponentially increase my profits, customer service experience, and my time with my family.
Now I wake up every day with a game plan. I go to bed at a reasonable hour. I'm constantly blowing past the norms of productivity and dedication for quality in my work. And best of all I'm a better mother to my children for following my dream successfully and not loosing my sanity towards them in the process.
I could have kept this secret sauce all to myself, but I designed this course for you. I have a deep rooted passion for women and especially moms that are tired of filling everyone else's cup and leaving theirs empty. The feelings of being burnt out and the thoughts of "I'm never gonna..." or "That level of success just isn't for me..." and "I can't do it all..." truly break my heart. You can do whatever you set your mind to in the right season when you plan for it. And I'm going to be here to help you do it.

You got an hour back in your day. You got to sleep in later. You weren't filled with anxiety and panic about all the things you had to do that day. You were able to go to bed at the same time as your spouse. You could sign your kids up for school sports without the worry of "do we have time for this". You were able to take your time meditating, working out, and practicing self-care when that time was typically taken over by answering emails frantically. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee start to finish. You gained an expert accountability partner. You felt confident in the direction of your business. You connect with other like-minded bloggers in a mastermind style setting that leads to collaboration and life-long friendships.
