Do you struggle with balancing out your priorities between your business and your family!
Then this this series is for you!!

 
Being a special needs mom means I have to be very
Now I could try and cram everything into these few hours but would that really be efficient? Probably not. 🤦‍♀️Instead I have a layed out plan of what I am going to do each day, especially days that he is at school. 📋

Trying to cram everything into a few hours is insane, so instead I have planned and mapped out what it is I need to do that I struggle getting when my son is here.

 

👩‍💼This Day 1 of Boss mom tip series!

When life gets crazy busy you tend to push aside those big projects or those business building things that need your entire focus.

When you have those quiet slots of time this is the time when you need to do those things that keep getting pushed aside. Decide what is most important, don’t try and squeeze all of them in, but choose what is most important that needs to be done . Then if you still have time when finished you can move on to the next. Remember balance is Golden and during some months and neither your family nor your business should suffer.

Are you a Mompreneur? How do you utilize your quiet time!

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world.  It was a very brief moment! 

For a brief moment yesterday I had considered going back into the corporate world. 😱
It was a very brief moment! ☝️
Something was dangled in front of me and for a moment my mind wandered.
But then…..
.
.
.
🗯️I asked myself was I willing to give up my time freedom?
💸Was I willing to fork over a lot of money for help with my son?
☹️Was I willing to give up doing what I love to do?
🙄Was I willing to line the pockets of someone else instead of me?

🙌At the age of 53 I wish I understood what all this represented years ago!

😮Maybe I wouldn’t have spent 8 years driving 60 miles a day, paying over $100 a week for day care, just to break even every month after bills.

😷Maybe I wouldn’t have been so stressed out to have made myself physically sick and become obese!

😭Maybe I would have been able to be there more for my kids when they needed me!

👩‍🍳Maybe I wouldn’t have spent many years waiting tables and working double shifts just to make ends meet while at the same time missing out on some precious mommy moments.

👀Looking back though I can say I am grateful for the opportunities! I grew as an individual with each experience, and discovered some new passions!
I was able to help a lot of people something I am passionate about doing!

🤔However, I honestly don’t know how I did it. For 8 years, The 60 miles a day commute alone sucked! I was in my car more hours in a day than I was at home!

Now my days are not dictated by a time clock or supervisor! They are
– On My terms
– I drive when I want to
– I have time now to take care of me
– I am healthier
– I am still helping others
– I am always available for my kids now
– I no longer break even in the bank every month⬆️
– I get to enjoy being me

No I am not retired!
💃I chose to live a life that that I design!!

I am back!! Hey where has she been? Lessons From Hurricane Michael

It has been so long since I have posted on here so first let me say that I apologize for that!! The last 6 months have been unbelievable insane!!

Let me give you a little piece advice, always listen to your instincts no matter how crazy they seem!! Life is to short and life is to complicated to listen to everyone else instead of what is in your heart!!

If you are not following me on Facebook please do so, so much has been going on and changing and I usually stay up to date on there!  http://www.facebook.com/coachdebbieforand 

So where have I been!!

Well in August I decided to change companies that I was with. I had been with my previous company for three years and it was not going the way I wanted it to. Sure I loved everyone with Team Beachbody, I love their workouts and the Shakeology but something was missing! I joined an MLM to work from home, to earn enough income to pay off debts, and it wasn’t happening with that company!

So after a lot , and I mean a lot of research I stumbled upon and Eco friendly, Green company that I just fell in love with. I fell in love with their products, the people, and yes the business compensation plan!

So with anything new and any change you make in your life it takes focus and that is exactly what I was doing until October 9th!

On October 9th my family and I packed up, boarded up, and took shelter in a safer location because we thought we were going to get a small hurricane. On October 10th our lives changed! The small Hurricane turned out to be one of the largest to hit the county!

Yes Hurricane Michael!!

Our home, our town and even us were in the direct path of it!! The eye went right over where we were sheltered. The eye wall tore through our home! We were devastated!!
We lost a lot and it was life changing!! I learned a lot over these past few months and the biggest thing that I learned was to always listen to my instincts.

It was my instinct that led me to insisting that we ( 5 disabled, three were elderly and my son who is disabled) evacuate our home! It was my instinct that led us to boarding our windows at the last moment! It was my instinct that kept us a live! And… It was my instinct that led me to this amazing new company and opportunity for my family!!

I have so much to share on this new path I have been placed on, please be sure that you are subscribed to my blog and / or following me on social media!
I also have so much to share about what we went through and are still going through because everything is a lesson learned! Every heartache we have endured these pass few months showed us something new about us and about our lives!

Your know what they say is true, things happen for a reason! Hurricane Michael happened for a reason! We can’t explain it or justify it we just have to accept it and move forward!!

I believe this new opportunity has happened for a reason! I can not question it, I just need to trust the universe and always listen to my instincts!

My Business has Changed and I am no longer with Team Beachbody

As most of you may know, I have spent the last 3 years pouring my heart ❤️and soul into my business.
Being part of Team Beachbody Not only turned my life around mentally and physically, but allowed me to continue to be a full time stay home mom to my CJ! 👩‍👦
Which I am more than GRATEFUL for🙏🏻

🧐 More importantly, I made some AMAZING friends, 👭 and reconnected with old friends that I might not have! It also taught me so much not only about myself but about “TRUE” leadership, TEAM building and what is required to build a very SUCCESSFUL team!!
📣However, I have decided it’s time for me to move on 🚶‍♀️ to some NEW, BIGGER ADVENTURES!!

This was a very difficult decision! However one that I needed to make for my family and my future

The reason I chose this new adventure is because after years with focusing on nutrition and exercise to my  customers, fans, and followers, I learned from them that there was still something missing in their health journeys; as well as in mine! After careful consideration and significant research I found what I was looking for to help them with TOTAL HEALTH!

THANK YOU 😘 from the bottom of my heart to all of my Facebook friends, family and customers that supported me through these years and this journey! 👉🏻You are appreciated more than you know💚

😁 I am SUPER excited for what is next🙌🏻
😏This is something SOOOOOOOO big that it’s going to completely change the game for so many moms and families everywhere! 🌎 😲
