Reframing ‘Mommy Shaming’

Reframing ‘Mommy Shaming’: How to Build a United Mothering Community

“Everything changes when you become a mother.” This is what the other moms told me toward the end of my pregnancy. “You’ll see”, they said. I also heard a lot that, “Pregnancy is the easy part. Just wait until the baby comes!” And a whole lot of, “Say goodbye to sleep!”

Money Matters – Freeing Yourself of Financial Woes is Priceless

Money, Money, Money… ah yes, the root of all evil. Or is it? Isn’t it really our desire for money that’s the problem?! If money is the root of all evil, then they say, greed is the seed.

Greed is evil, money is powerful.

We all have a unique and personal relationship with money. There are some people who measure their success by power and status. For others, maybe their upbringing made it come easy throughout their lives, with generational wealth as a cushion. And some have had to struggle to make ends meet and so have developed frugal, sustainable habits as a result. Read More

Just Breathe: Strengthen your Attention … (and your glutes!)

Are you finding it hard to concentrate during the day? Mind wandering, foot tapping, to-do list getting longer? With all that 2020 has brought it’s a no brainer that our minds are going to be wandering elsewhere and will change us in ways unimaginable right now. Therefore the approach in which we enter our workspace or headspace absolutely needs to adapt.

To be able to focus on your day and tasks at hand it is crucial to tap into what fuels a powerful mindset into being productive, energized and inspired. First, we need to look at uniting energy inwards; finding your breath, feeling your muscles, waking up the spine and discovering that central resolve.

This is where we’ll begin.

Taking off your Emotional Armor

We only really see people from the outside. In fact, we only see what they want us to see. Whether it’s the barista at your local coffee shop or your friendly co-worker that always says, “Good Morning” with a huge smile on her face, what’s presented to us is never as telling as what’s on the inside.Read More

The Road to Resilience

I was excited to be given the opportunity to Guest Blog for Wildernest, and when debating on what single topic to tackle, I started thinking about all the things that I have experienced in my lifetime and career that could help benefit other female professionals and entrepreneurs. But I quickly realized that it’s not one thing, but the sum of how all of those experiences came together, that contains the wisdom I want to share.

My life has not been all sunshine and roses.

No More Silence: Facing White Privilege and Doing the Work

You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both.” —Brené Brown

A couple weeks ago at a dinner party in Bali, I sat across from a white American male who didn’t believe privilege exists and fell under the All Lives Matter banner. After the initial shock of what he was saying wore off, I felt this shot of full body adrenaline take over me, accompanied by the burning sensation in my belly that I always feel when I am scared to say what I am about to say, but know I’m going to do it anyway. 

I could have been silent. I could have let it go, kept the peace, and pivoted over to the civil dinner party conversation all around us. I could have, because it would have been a whole lot easier on me and everyone around me at the table.Read More

3 Things You Can Do Right Now to Not Give Up on Your Dreams

We all know there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Duh. If there was, we’d all run fearlessly in the direction of our dreams!

But even with this knowledge that dreams take time to be realized, unfortunately we still see people quickly giving up on their dreams as soon as things get a little bit tough.

Sure, things may become harder than we realized when we started, or it takes longer to reach our goals, or we feel like we aren’t getting anywhere.Read More

Pandemic Advice for Career Success: Spend Some Time Doing Nothing

There has never been so much quiet in our lives…and so much noise. I’ve found this duality of quarantine incredibly interesting and profoundly powerful. Never have we had so much time to ourselves, so much time to go inward, so much time to focus and think about what is truly important to us. And never have we had such a strong instinct to run from that quiet. Because let’s face it, for most of us, this quiet is incredibly uncomfortable and unnerving.Read More

let’s talk about stress baby

Stress affects everyone, and tbh: it’s like the pain in the ass cousin to our old familiar frenemy: fear! 

With fear, our minds think of worst case scenarios and if we don’t think through ways to overcome it, we just hold ourselves back. Fear forces us to stay in our protected little bubble, not taking those necessary leaps of faith, only to realize in the future what could’ve been if we didn’t let our minds talk us out of it. 

With stress, our mind is constantly checking in with itself to see if we’re still stressing about the very thing we’re trying not to stress about. It clouds our mind, makes us unproductive, unmotivated… and sometimes even unhinged. It’s like being on a diet. How many times have you thought, “I won’t have sweets” and all of a sudden you can’t stop thinking about not having sweets. Our brain checks in with us constantly, asking: are you thinking about the thing you’re not supposed to be thinking about? 

So stressful!

Finding clarity and hope during uncertain times

“When everything is uncertain, everything that is important becomes clear”

As social distancing, quarantines, and lockdowns worldwide have started to become our new norm, I’ve also started to see the initial shock lifting around me, and have heard from others  that they are just starting to find the space to finally have enough breathing room and time to sit back and re-evaluate what you really want out of life and dream about what your future is going to look like after this. 

When I lost my dream photography project two weeks ago due to the global travel ban, the first thing I did (after crying it out for a full half day )was immediately think of you. Yes, YOU! Read More

**Special COVID19 crisis e-course pricing assistance**

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its global impact, we are currently completely focused on what we can do to best support each other - our community, our families, and our fellow wild women. As we all navigate this crisis, we want you to know that we’re in your corner, and we want to do our part to help you find some hope and to feel empowered as you find your way forward to a new normal. While social distancing and quarantines have many downsides, the most valuable resource we all have right now is extra time, and if we take advantage of that extra time by working hard on our dreams we all may just be able to turn some sour-ass lemons into some Beyonce-level Lemonade. And we are in a unique position to help you do just that with our Nest for Success ecourse, which helps you work through every step of laying the foundation for your dream business - culminating in the creation of your very own business plan (COVID be damned!). Our hope is that this course will help you utilize this time to truly evaluate what is possible for your future, to start thinking big, and begin laying the essential groundwork for building the company and life of your dreams when the dust of the pandemic settles.

As small business owners ourselves who have all been impacted by the crisis, we know that right now finances are scary and the future of your work may be shaky. We’ve been talking with a lot of you behind the scenes and know that many of you have lost your income, or had it drastically reduced, affecting your ability to support yourself and your family, or that your 9-5 job security is on thin ice. So we have made an immediate decision to make our course as accessible and affordable as we can to you during this time in order to lend a hand. 

So starting now through April 15th, we’re going as low as we can go and making our $997 course available for $99. (We’d give it for FREE if we could but need to make sure our team is cared for and keep the lights on over here too!). We’ve also set it up so you can split your payment into 3 monthly charges of $33, with the normal payment plan fees waived. 

And if you’re doing a little better than most during this time, we would encourage you to pay it forward and choose the option to sponsor a woman who is in financial crisis. If you are one of those women who’s in financial crisis, please be brave and send us a message via social media direct message, or email us at hello@wildernestwomen.com to let us know what’s going on and we’ll work on getting you taken care of. 

We love you, we’re here for you, and please remember to throw kindness around like confetti and lean on your sisters during this time.
