August 31 Day Challenge: 3. Favorite Entrepreneur Podcast

Day 3. Favorite Entrepreneur Podcast

Seth Godin

I came across his Stop Stealing Dreams talk on TedX and from there on I knew this man had something for me to hear. It’s one of those talks where you knew what he was saying all along but never found the words to express it yourself let alone put anything into practice.

August 31 Day Challenge: 1. Mission Statement

This is a bit over ambitious for me. However, I am going to do this. I am going to make time. Because it’s what I need.

Day 1. Mission Statement

To live a life while earning an income that allows us to experience and enjoy what we can while we have time here.

THIS is living to me.
Handling business during the morning.
Enjoying this crazy city of ours in the afternoons.
Relaxed. At ease. Breathing.
Today I start an entrepreneurial challenge and Day #1 asked… “Whats your mission statement?” This picture is a huge part of it. Something as simple as taking a 3 hour walk through the gardens, appreciating our lives, enjoying our littles, discussing business strategy, not answering calls or texts, and just being in our little moment… this is it.

Post Partum Sucks, and I Love It

img_20161017_004817

Leaky, uneven boobs. Saggy, dark, squishy belly skin. Itchy and still painful operation incision. A newborn that nurses on demand at either every 3 hours or every hour and a half, for food and for comfort. I am tired. I am hungry. I am crazed. I am anxious. I hurt.

What to pack in your hospital bag

Hdelivery_l_tnbospitals are icky. I hate them. What’s worse, is being stuck inside one and not having  your favorite relaxing music, your go to snacks, or your own toothbrush. Brining a little bit of comfort to have with you on the day of labor, weather spontaneous or planned cesarean, will help with relaxing and being comfortable during and afterwards. I’m all about practical, simple and efficient. So pack it all to fit in one bag, and not a suitcase made for a 7 day cruise.

stock-illustration-22698431-cry-baby

With this new baby on his way, my millennial research addiction has been in full force and there was nothing I didn’t want to research. As conversations came to with Joe, lots of random ‘What can I expect?’ questions from a Dad’s point of view surfaced. And as a Woman, my insight may be a little one-sided. With that side, and with some inspiration, I created a list, a long list, of 111 things, I think, all new dads should know.
