How does a Mompreneur stay present in the moment?

Being a ‘mompreneur’ is the most empowering task I have been trusted with. The reason I say ‘empowering’ is because I never knew I was capable of successfully juggling so many things at once. As an entrepreneur who offers one of the best franchise opportunities for women (if I do say so myself)—not to mention a new mom myself—life is busy.

When I can think to myself at the end of the day… I helped 8 other women on our team become better today than they were yesterday, I sent 185 emails in three hours, I talked at least one bride off the ledge, I put out 4 fires in the office, we thought of another innovative concept to implement in our business, I didn’t kill my two fur babies, I managed to keep my other baby happy and well, I had dinner on the table before 9pm, I was able to spend quality time with my husband and daughter before she went to bed, Oh and I got to take a shower?!

That’s a successful day, because moms can freakishly multitask.

I quickly thought I was Super-Mom. I was not noticing how run down I was and was no longer present in the moment. I was spending every possible second of the day thinking about work, or the next load of laundry I needed to do.

On Being a Balanced Mompreneur….

I quickly had to teach myself to either wear my mommy hat, or franchise entrepreneur hat. If I am home with my daughter and she’s not sleeping, I am fully engaged with her and I do not even feel guilty about it. If our nanny is at the house, I am fully engaged in work and figuring out ways to help other women accomplish these same dreams.

It is definitely possible to run a business and a household, but not within the same few minutes.

Moms feel guilty for taking time for themselves, but you shouldn’t. In order for you to successfully run a household you have to be physically and emotionally prepared. You have to think of going to get your nails done or decompressing at the gym, as something you are ultimately doing for your child or husband. If you are so mentally and physically drained, there is no way you are fully capable of spending quality time with your child and husband in a positive environment.

Every woman deserves the opportunity to decompress, take time for herself and engage with her family. If your husband or children are suffering from you never being present in the moment, you are going to regret it later down the road.

Every day I realize how thankful I am for this incredible opportunity to build a company and have the flexibility to be present in my daughter’s life, especially certain times she needs it most. That’s why it’s important to us that we provide opportunities for women, and moms, to have a dream job with flexibility, and why we started offering franchise opportunities for women.

I know not every mom is there yet, but I want to encourage you to position yourself to get there eventually. Continue bettering your career path and do not just stay comfortable because it pays the bills. You deserve it.

Looking for the perfect gift for your bridesmaids? The buzz is true…Kendra Scott has opened a Charlotte, NC store at Southpark Mall. Kendra Scott is an amazing jewelry designer whose company has grown tremendously but stays true to her founding philosophies of “Family, Fashion, & Philanthropy.” One of her favorite mottos is “Dream it! Live it! Love it!” and we here at We Tie The Knots could not agree more with those inspiring words!

I had the opportunity to meet with the lovely Kendra Scott-Charlotte Event Coordinator, Kelsea, who told me about all the fun things their stores have to offer. In particular, I am so excited to share the “Color Bar”with all of you beautiful and stylish brides! I attended their opening and fell in love with the store from the moment I walked up to the façade. The funky modern light fixtures and clean design grabbed my attention from the start. Upon walking in, the store was adorned with vibrant jewels and fresh blooms and I was then offered a delicious mimosa & sweet treat for my browsing…does it get much better than that? I decided to play around with the touch screen Color Bar and may have even designed a pair of earrings for myself!

The Color Bar offers a fun way to create unique and customized pieces for your bridal party depending on your wedding color palate and each individual’s style. There are numerous settings for earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings as well as a wide array of gorgeous stones to pick from. Stones range from bold and vibrant to neutral and soft palates and styles from simple and delicate to those that make quite the statement! The store now offers Color Bar parties for you to bring in your bridal party for a fun girls night out, sip champagne, and design jewelry that is unique to each person attending. The bride can either design the jewelry for her maids on her own or pick out her favorite settings, stones, and color palates to allow the bridesmaids to get a little creative! The jewelry piece you decide on is handmade within minutes for you to take home on the same day. If you don’t have one of these fabulous stores near you or are short on time, you can also design these jewelry pieces conveniently online.

Kendra Scott-Charlotte- we can’t wait to work with you at a Color BarParty soon! Brides-check them out, I promise your bridesmaids will be thrilled with their new sparkly jewelry…and what a fun excuse for some bubbly?

CHEERS!
