These are a few of my favorite things 🎶 I’m so blessed by friends who texted me multiple months ago (while they were out together and I was home with mega FOMO and a little baby who is not a great late night party guest) with “hey are you up for hosting the favorite things party so you can go?! We want to make sure you can come” 😭🥰 the first year of new baby life can be so socially isolating if you’re exclusively nursing and at home with the kids. So thankful in this season for friends like these! . . . . #momtribe #honestmotherhood #ohwhatfun #thehappynow #christmas #christmasspirit #christmas2019 #featurepalette #100layercakelet #flashesofdelight #cameramama #lovelysquares #christmasinspo #howwedwell #christmasdecor #hearthandhand #motherhoodrising #neutraldecor #christmascheer #smpliving #makerslife #collectivelycreate #calledtobecreative #etsysellersofinstagram #makermama #etsyseller #makersmovement #glowforge #tablescapeinspo

There’s a difference between necessary hustle and problematic hustle. Unfortunately for startup culture, problematic hustle is normalized. A lot.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hustle is okay in year 1 when you're getting your bearings, but hustle in year 2+? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That's a telltale sign that you're not building a business, you're building a miserable sentence to be a salesperson for life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s what problematic hustle in year 2+ looks like: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏃🏽‍♀️ Hustling to get revenue through the door. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏃🏽‍♀️ Constantly using interruption marketing to get attention — advertising, trade shows, cold outreach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏃🏽‍♀️ Hustling to pay your business and personal expenses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All this effort leads to burn out when you do this month after month, year after year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's a big difference between having a business that has to *look for new sales* and a business that simply *announces they’re open and the sales come to them*.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A business that has a system in place to magnetically attract sales to them is a much easier business to run. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wouldn’t it be nice to announce that your product is taking orders, and then sell out of your stock within a few hours? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does that sound like a dream to you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It shouldn’t be — it’s the reality of a business that has its marketing and sales system in check. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you don’t have this system in place, it's impossible to get out of the hustle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you try to do everything, you will fail because it's impossible to nurture hundreds of leads at the same time by yourself — you will drop the ball somewhere.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And if you're not nurturing hundreds of leads right now? Guess what, that's why you're hustling to bring in money.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Get off the struggle bus, the hustle isn’t for you anymore. 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm giving you permission to step off and making it known that it's not the path to your success. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @castnersdaily

I went to a Christmas-themed pop-up bar last night, and it was everything you think that sentence should be. Get your holiday orders in before the 20th! 🎄 . . . . . . #transplantedmarigold #christmas #holidayseason #holidayshopping #etsy #handmade #vintage #repurposed #reimagined #jewelry #scarves #homedecor #artwork #madewithlove #makerslife #makersgonnamake #etsyshop #etsyseller #smallbusiness #shopsmall #shoplocal #mompreneur #momswhowork #momlife #boymom #workingmom #nyc #queensny #astoriaqueens #longislandcity

Saturday vibes ✌🏼 cozying up with a good book and a cup of coffee is totally my vibe this season. I just finished @msrachelhollis ”Girl, wash your face”, and almost done with @philknight_nike ’s “Shoe Dog”. I love reading a book I’ll learned something from and be inspired by!⠀ 📖⠀ What are you currently reading? What should I add to the list?
