My alarm went off at 5am today . Boss babes rise early right? Well I hit snooze three times before I got up because my son decided to toss and turn and keep me up last night. Something we are currently struggling with is his obsession and his need and want to fall asleep holding my boob. He was nursed for 19 wonderful but very long months! Now when he gets a night terror , or is in pain or wakes up upset he wants to claw at my shirt and find comfort in holding my chest. Now I must say, this was not tonight’s blog post plan to tell you these details or our nightly struggles. But if you have a toddler or have gone through this GIRL send me your wisdom.
I am here now working AGAIN , because did you know when you are a go getting entrepreneur your job doesn’t end? You have a million jobs. Half of them , no that is a lie, MORE than half of them I am still figuring out. Taxes ? Wait I have to pay them every quarter? Good to know , check…wait where do I send those off to?! SEO , what the heck is that…OH that is why no one finds these blogs of mine, haha . Business plan, you mean booking sessions and then developing and delivering them is not a plan? hmmm .
So how do we moms, and we business building woman keep on going? How in the world do we figure all of this out . How do we roll out of bed and how do we do it again and again.
I don`t know drink more wine?
Maybe , I am still learning. BUT defiantly find your WHY.
For me I dream. I don`
t remember a time I was not dreaming. There were times I got off path , let distractions get in my way. But I always knew I needed and wanted more .There have been times I gave up. I always started back up again though. Well, after I had my mini melt down that things are just not in the cards for me, haha.
I have always been the girl that had three PLUS jobs. When my husband and I got married I told him , I think we should buy a house and then sell it to move. I told him I would not move anywhere unless it was on the water , you guys we live in a lake front home today! Not 100% what I originally thought , but all of my thoughts I sent up above were defiantly involving sun kissed days and water.
When we applied for a loan we went through over 5 different banks, I almost gave up , until finally we GOT APPROVED on our own. We had great credit (which if you know my whole story, this was WORK) but proving our income was hard. I didn’t have a steady income but made decent money and the same with my husband.
You know what our loan man told me ( sorry my mind is blank, what is his proper name?) , he had never in his life met someone who had had so many jobs to prove. We had to go back FIVE years because this was our first home purchase. I had over 20 jobs in that time!!!!! Now I did work steady jobs that I kept but I always picked up seasonal or side hustles. I always had three, minimum two jobs at a time.
SO what is my point , I always had a BIGGER dream. I could not ever settle. My photography dreams are JUST beginning, I have big giant things in my plan.
So tonight , in between my motherly duties , see more than one job ;) , I am still going at it, uploading , writing, cleaning , and hopefully motivating you ladies to do the same, or men but it seems I get more feed back from all the woman out there ;)

Keep on dreaming,
Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one`s time, for dreams are our realities in waiting. In dreams we plant seeds for our future.
