Let’s Talk | Mom life & getting “unstuck”

I’m super excited about this month’s cover stories!!

One of the main things I’m determined to do is to create a life that I love; a life that serves me!  A life that I can be proud of, where I am not only showing up for myself… but one where I am  becoming and fully embracing the woman I know God is calling me to be… yes, as a whole mom.

I know you feel the same. I know that you know you’re more than a mommy. I know you desire to rewrite the narrative,  and you want to live your absolute best life…. as a wife, a mom, a business owner… as a woman!

And as eager as you are to redefine mom life on your terms, and FINALLY create a life that excites you…

YOU. FEEL. STUCK.

You can’t seem to figure out how to finally move forward and embrace the beauty of who you know you want to become. You’re trying your best to show up, but you can’t seem to get past the disappointment of things not going as you expected.  You’ve even gotten to the point of trying to  force things to work out;  trying to keep up appearances because you want to prove that you can do it all… instead of operating in the flow and freedom that God has for you….

Well… It’s time to get unstuck and walk in the freedom that God has for you! I’m so grateful to be used by Him!

This month is all about getting “unstuck” and we’re starting with the basics! Because let me tell you this….You will never be able to create & live a life that excites you until you do this one thing!

So if you’re ready to walk in freedom, Check out my first July cover story (video) below, and as always be sure to comment, and share with a momma who needs this!

The “Content Crisis” | 3 Strategies to help moms create content, consistently!

Some “momma creatives” are struggling to create content, consistently. They’ve slipped into  what I’m calling the “Content Crisis”. These mommas may have amazing ideas, but aren’t sure how to formulate those ideas into “post-able” content.  Or if they do create the content, they struggle to remain consistent! And let’s not forget to mention, time is not always on our side!

Momma, is this you? If so, keep reading! I’m sharing 3 tips to help you overcome the “content crisis”, that you can apply TODAY!

1. Clarity!

Answer the following: Who are you (how do you want to position yourself)? Who are you speaking to (your audience)? What message, story, or lesson do you want to share, and why (purpose, goal)? And how would you like to share it? Text, video, audio..etc? When it comes to content I truly believe clarity and authenticity are essential. This helps with attracting, launching and selling, if that’s your end goal.  Outside of that, you can get as creative and expressive as you’d like. Are there certain platforms that respond “better”  to certain types of content? of course. For example reels are still very hot on IG… but the type of reels you create are completely up to you. I’ve seen reels that are all text from an author promoting a new book, and others from stylists with no words but rather a step by step showing how to use a new product. I’ve seen a bunch of funny ones, and others that were created to bring awareness to social injustice.  And guess what, I’ve also seen very impactful platforms that don’t use reels at all. So truly, it is up to you! The key is to get clear about who you are, who you serve, and plan accordingly.

2. Consistency!

Since becoming a mom, batching my content has been a game changer. And if I’m being honest it has helped me to be more consistent. Wild how planning can do that! Where I once was able to create in the moment, I now have a whole toddler to consider. And sis is busy! Outside of nap time and bed time, I feel like she’s always on 100, and I gotta keep both eyes on her lol. So creating ain’t easy, but I made it a point to figure out a way to show up in business, without sacrificing time with my little lady! So I looked at my schedule, and decided that I would select one day every week were I would give myself the time, space and grace to create content freely, without interruption and more importantly without the guilt of stepping away from my child! So every Sunday, I have my plan of ideas and I escape for 2-3 hours in the morning (before hubby goes to work) to focus on creating. From creating image quotes, recording videos and reels, to planning and scheduling my blog posts and clubhouse rooms… Sunday is my day to create!

3. Confidence!

Most of us lack confidence because we don’t believe in ourselves, or we’ve been comparing ourselves to others. This was huge for me. Before I got clear on who I am, and who I’m called to serve, I wasn’t as bold, confident or consistent. I was constantly looking at the other mommy pages, feeling somewhat out of place because my message went against the norm. Listen, even my brand colors were different than the usual mauves and pastels. But once your girl got clarity, and remembered that being all of me is necessary to attract the moms I’m called to serve, my confidence grew exponentially.  Now, you can’t tell me, or my brightly colored posts, anything! I’m being all of me; bright, bold, unapologetically me!

It’s also important to give yourself permission to be a beginner. So many times we start out and expect everything to be peaches and cream from day one, and it typically doesn’t work out that way! Just because your content hasn’t gone viral, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have impact! Just because you didn’t get a million views, doesn’t mean it hasn’t added value. And we all know it only takes a few clients to really make an impact financially. So, stop looking around, and focus on you.  Know that you are called, and what you have to add is needed for such a time as this! So share that quote, record and upload that video, tell that funny impactful story… do it, share it, and show up…confidently!

I beat my face 5 days last week, here’s what it taught me about mom life!

So if you’ve been following me on INSTAGRAM, then you may know that I made a commitment to myself to beat my face all week last week. I purchased some new makeup from one of my fave beauty brands, and decided to make time to do one of the things I absolutely love! Here is one of my fave looks from last week…

I had a BALL!!! Like, I got up every morning, had my coffee, did my devotional and MADE the time to do my makeup! Y’all  it was everything!

It’s so funny because as I was enjoying my daily beat,  I couldn’t help but remember when I first started doing my own makeup and the process I went through to learn how to do it correctly! And that’s when it hit me…

creating harmony and manifesting the life you desire as a mom is like beating my face!

Whether self taught or professionally trained,.. it takes being intentional to learn how to do it, but once you master it there is a flow! (Story time)

Let me take you back to 2010, when  I first starting doing my own makeup. I’d just accepted my new job as a manager at Macy’s, and I was finally ready to put in the work to learn. So, I went to the nearest Mac counter and purchased a little bit of everything.

I got home, and stood in front of my bathroom ready to SLAY.  I thought I could just start and everything would come together. Wrong! I had no clue what I was doing! Everyone I watched on YouTube, made it look so easy, but it wasn’t… for me! Y’all it was not pretty! My foundation didn’t match, my skin was breaking out… it was so bad!

After 3 weeks of unsuccessfully trying it on my own, I went back to return my products. Clearly they were the problem, not me!

Well that’s when Ms Margaret came to unknowingly save the day.🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

She helped me to understand why the products weren’t working for me, and quickly shifted to teach me what I needed to know to finally get it right! She explained the different types of foundations, how to use concealer, and even explained the importance of skin care and WASHING MY MAKEUP BRUSHES! It seemed so obvious, but I clearly needed someone to guide me in the right direction. 😭😭😭

I’m a pretty quick study so I took all that she showed me and tried again, and guess what? It actually made a difference!  My foundation actually matched, I created a skin care routine to avoid breakouts, and I even made the time to ensure my tools were cleaned and cared.  I’ve been mastering this skill, and routine over the years and well…  look at me now! Ayyyeee!!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🔥🔥🔥🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

Well, the same is true for you momma…  just like I tried to pick up the art of makeup…. you may have tried to find “balance” and change your life, to no avail. And after 3 weeks/months/years of unsuccessfully trying it on your own… you’ve convinced yourself that “this just doesn’t work for me”! You may have even resolved to forfeit your promise of abundance, because “you’re a mom” and “this is just how it is”!

Well let me be your Ms Margaret! Allow me to show you that it is possible and what exactly you need to experience the transformation and abundance and life you desire! Because you, momma, CAN HAVE IT ALL!

I’m talking what you REALLY DESIRE…

✨MORE time with your loved ones
✨MORE intimacy in your marriage
✨MORE money in your bank account
✨MORE in every area that matters most to you!

I know you’re ready to not only witness what it looks like to have a bomb life as a whole mom, but you’re ready to redefine mom life on your terms, and finally create the life that excites you!

If you’re sick and tired of trying on your own, and don’t want to waste another moment, stuck in overwhelm and living a life that doesn’t serve you… and you’re finally ready to TAKE ACTION… Then I have EXACTLY what you’ve need!
