Treats for my Rogie Bear💖
Here are some of my tricks to stay ‘somewhat’ productive as a working from home mama 👩🏻💻
➕keep a pocket journal and jot down any ideas 💡 that you can not act on right away
➕use the #bulletjournal
method for your tasks and projects. this is also where I have a tracker of client sessions and money outstanding
➕get ‘in the zone’ quicker by diffusing essential oils such #frankincense #citrusoils #rosemary
➕use nap time or daycare time for work. I prefer to do the household chores when Indigo is around..
a) it’s possible
b) she can see me doing these things, setting an example
➕say NO to anything that you don’t actually want to say yes to!
What are your tips? I’d love to hear them 💋

It is expected to be overwhelmed & flustered as you fly from pillar to post while growing up your business; and quite often many entrepreneurs get caught up and forget and important aspect of their growth - REST
Do you know that when you sleep, your brain goes into a strategic mode that processes everything you have learnt & been exposed to? It files, organizes and stores appropriately.
Have you notices how when you wake up or approach a task after a period of rest, you begin to see solutions you didn't before? You're more likely to remember what you have learnt or memorized and consequently you more productive and of more value to your growing business.
Your business, startup is an extension of who you are, if you take good care of you, your business will benefit immensely.
Don't forget to rest today!

The right company of people is a determinant to how successful you will be.
Your companions needs some auditing.😉
And yes it's Friday 😁😁😁
Avant, je me disais souvent je n’y arriverai pas, ce fameux syndrome de l’imposteur 😓
Maintenant, je me force à penser que je suis capable de réaliser mes rêves et que je ne suis pas moins bien que ceux qui y arrivent.
Pour atteindre son objectif 🎯, le plus important est de commencer et chaque petits pas compte.
C’est sûr que si on essaie pas on ne risque pas de réussir. C’est aussi sortir de sa zone de confort. 😉
Belle journée 😘

Bon bon bon. Ça fait des jours, voir des semaines que je n’ai pas publié. Au delà du fait que j’ai attrapé une saleté de virus ainsi que toute ma famille. J’ai moins de visibilité sur mon compte et j’hésite à continuer... je sais pas si je partage ma vie de maman, de femme entrepreneur, les deux? Bref grosse remise en question ces temps-ci ...
Thank God for another weekend.
Have a lovely day Queens and Kings.
✖️ KITCHEN TIPS ✖️
Overwhelmed? Think it’s all too hard? Not sure what the fuss is about?
Let me help you!
Let’s start with the Kitchen. Here are some simple ways to get the toxins out there in a few easy ways:
💥 500ml glass spray bottle: 2tbsp. Vinegar, 10 drops On Guard, 5 drops each Wild Orange and Tea Tree, 2 drops Oregano and top with water. That’s your surface cleaner right there.
💥 500ml glass spray bottle: 20 drops Lemon, top wit 50/50 water and vinegar. There’s your glass cleaner.
💥 Bicarb, water 6 drops each Lemon and Lime. Make into a paste. Oven Cleaner/sink cleaner ready to go.
💥 2 cups bicarb soda, 2 cups washing soda, 1 cup Himalayan salt, 1/2 cup citric acid, 20 drops each Lemon and Wild Orange. Dishwasher powder is where it’s at.
💥 1 cup bicarb soda, 1 cup Vinegar and 5 drops Lemon is the best weekly deep clean for your dishwasher.
💥 2 cups Castile soap, 20 drops Lime and 10 drops Wild Orange. Dishwashing soap is done.
💥 230ml foaming pump bottle: 2 tbsp Castile soap, 1 tbsp fractionated coconut oil, 10 drops On Guard and top with water. Hand soap winner.
How simple is that?! That’s one room checked off the list and a huuuuuge step closer to being low-tox 🙌🏼
B U T T E R C U P B A B Y 🤰🏽So it’s not just the Butter Cups I have been working on for the last few months 🙈. The last five months have been a challenge! I started the Butter Cup project earlier this year, so along with late nights, long journeys, meetings and plannIng came sickness, tiredness & migraines, but you can’t really plan babies 😂 and I really had to see this through. There was almost a moment just before we launched where the Butter Cups were not going to happen (il save that for another post) and I was literally going to give up, but something kept me going and I’m glad I didn’t because our launch has been phenomenal 🌟. I really have not had a moment to stop and rest and this baby has literally been part of the launch so it’s been extra special...a labour of love from me and baby ❤️. It’s not getting easier right now and we are busier than ever, and hey things are still going wrong but I’m just not trying to get stressed about it because the stress migraines just are not worth it. Glad I can finally lighten the load and share it with you all 🙏 it literally will be a Butter Cup baby because that’s all I have been eating since Iv been pregnant 😂. Happy Friday 😘
In the words of De la Soul ... It’s “Just me myself and ...” Tamara (AKA the Insta Wife, AKA “The Bro” in @alexandbro
, AKA the fabulous vintage emporium that is @reclecticinteriors
). Still with us?! With three Instagram accounts between us, we confuse ourselves sometimes.
Tamara and I both have our own businesses but at the beginning of 2018 we also set up a joint business, Alex and Bro, offering interior styling workshops.
People are often surprised that we only met in November last year. We went into @chriskitchfood
(Chris and Bibi you may not know, but you are partly responsible!) for a coffee and came out with a business plan. Neither of us expected that outcome.
It’s been such fun working together. Generally Alex and Bro HQ meetings involve creating boomerangs of us, Instagram musings, laughing, coffee, eating, and more eating.
Several workshops later...clearly all the business professionalism that happens at our meetings has paid off. November’s workshop is completely SOLD OUT. More workshop dates to follow.
Often mistaken for a man and his brother, yes ... but our name comes from our surnames Julia ALEXander and Tamara BROido. It took us ages to come up with the right name (some pretty terrible ideas were rejected such as “2mms” - which stood for two Muswell mums. Oh dear.)
Any stories you’d care to share about how your business came together or how you came up with your business name? Maybe a name that didn’t make the cut?!
Families aren't just important, they are everything 💛
Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend ☀️
🌿 I’m loving the benefits our family are enjoying daily from every little drop of Essential Oil. Feeling empowered from not only learning for myself how to support my family in their health & wellbeing, but sharing with others so they can feel empowered too.

Let’s be real for a moment... Being a mom is hard work.
Being a small business owner is hard work.
Put them together and you get a pooped momma with award winning under eye circles.
Yup, this is me. Five kids, big dreams, and eyes that look like they haven’t slept in years.
offered me the opportunity to test their “Wide Awake” Organic Dark Circle Concealer I knew I was game. I just didn’t know if they would live up to the challenge. 😂
Well, they did! I was thrilled to get this awesome selection of green beauty products that took me from mombie to alive! And the best part is that I didn’t feel like I was wearing makeup all day!

According to businessinsider.com 80% of people fail to stick to their business and personal goals that were set at the start of the year.
If you are not hitting your business goals more than likely you either
1. Don’t have specific business goals
2. You don’t have profit generating systems
3. You lack consistency
Regardless of where you may fall the beauty of this is you don’t have to finish the year how you started. You still have time to refocus and restart.
Since we are celebrating our one year anniversary at the Mogul Mom Network we are offering our business audit and Take Action plans to moms who are ready to reclaim their lives and businesses hit their business goals before we close out 2018. If you’re interested in learning more about these services connect with me using the link in my bio.
Did u know?
Moringa Oil has the muscle to minimize breakouts, wrinkles and guard against pollution .
It's good news for those with problem skin, because moringa is filled with vitamin A (what retinol is derived from, but retinol can be harmful esp for pregnant women , so Moringa is the perfect NATURAL solution ) and it's one of the most potent vitamins out there for near perfect skin ❤
Psst! That’s the new packaging for Pure Serum. Looking so sweet & lovely~
3 years ago I made a decision to stop being a moaner and change my life.
I had good reason to moan. I had no where to live, 2 children to care for with no financial help, my mental health was extremely poor, I had lingering post natal depression and severe anxiety, no income apart from Centrelink, I was being knocked back for rental properties repeatedly. I felt like a complete failure, my small home business had failed and made a loss my last year of operation (I literally worked a year with a baby around my ankles and made no money 😖😩). I could not see a way out of my situation.
It was during this time I came across a post much like this by a young lady I’d been following on Facebook probably as long as you’ve followed me. She was celebrating her success in reaching Diamond rank in her dōTERRA business and people were congratulating her. I didn’t really know what it meant but it looked pretty exciting and she looked happy. I knew her story. I knew it was much like mine. I knew she’d struggled a long time with many of the same challenges as me.
So I investigated what this “Diamond” thing was all about. And my eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw the kind of income she had created in such a short space of time. I imagined what that would be like. To actually have money to buy food, pay bills, buy my kids what they need, not stress every single god forsaken day about money. It seemed too good to be true, but I knew it was. I’d watched her do it from afar.
I thought she was frickin amazing. She gave me hope. She gave me the crazy idea that maybe, just maybe I could do what she’d done. If she could, why couldn’t I?
I thought about it a while. Lots of thoughts and fears popped into my head. I’m not as clever as her. I don’t have a social media following like her. I’m shy. I don’t like talking to people. No one likes me. I’m not cute and likeable like her. I have social anxiety. I have terrible skin. I don’t want people to see me.
I watched her videos. She seemed to have a lot of those fears too. But she did it anyway. Maybe I could too?
I weighed up my options. These were some of them I’d been considering at the time. (Cont in comments)
