If I had a nickel for every time I came across another guru claiming to have discovered the most meaningful, useful morning routine that will help everyone in the world become as successful as an Amazon CEO, I'd be as rich as an Amazon CEO. The truth is that there is no such routine, because everyone's life is different. We're all coming at the day…
 
If it were possible and legal to marry an online organizing tool, Trello™ and I would be hitched by now. I've talked about it before and I won't stop because Trello has made my life infinitely easier, my life more management and my business highly organized. So what is it? It's a visual organization tool (think Pinterest and Post-Its had a baby) an…
 
One of the best decisions I ever made was to run my home like I run my business. It's allowed us to create systems and routines that suit everyone and keep us on track like a well-oiled machine. Being a CEO isn't about making all of the decisions, it's about making the right ones. You get to choose the type of household CEO you want to be and desig…
 
"I'll tell you when you're older." isn't a phrase we say in the Hennessy house. My husband and I are committed to having uncomfortable conversations with our children at every age (in age appropriate ways, of course.) It can be difficult to get over our own discomfort and lack of confidence, but what an amazing opportunity it is to have an open dia…
 
One of my favorite ways to stay productive is to think of my future self as a different person, someone worthy of success and peace. She is someone worthy of having things set up for her without extra and added stress. This idea of setting your future self (even if it's just the you in a few hours) is so freeing and can help build momentum in every…
 
No is a complete sentence. What a freeing statement. In theory, it sounds empowering, but what about the people pleasing need to provide a justification for every no we speak. You don't owe anyone a reason or a justification for your boundaries or your choices and today in a great day to start saying no without the need to explain why.…
 
Not every routine is made for every season. We know that motherhood is all about the ebbs and flows and just like nature, seasons come and go. This can make creating routines that stick feel more difficult. I want to uncomplicate the process of creating a seasonal routine that fits your life, whether it be a cleaning routine during the summer month…
 
The mother-daughter relationship is one with many facets and levels. As a mother to a daughter and a daughter to a mother, I know that there can be discomfort, tension and unhealed wounds in these relationships. I'm so excited to welcome Dr. Michelle Deering to the podcast to discuss these relationships and how we can learn from them as both mother…
 
There is no doubt that motherhood, no matter the season, often feels hard, plain and simple. There's nothing worse than feeling like you're failing all while someone else tells you how "easy" it can be. Instead of trying to make the situations (which are often out of my control) easier, I'm focusing on bringing ease to my approach. That means uncom…
 
We're in the second quarter of the year, a time when most of us realize that those new year's resolutions and goals have fallen by the wayside. It's ok and it happens to all of us. I want to help you create goals you can stick to, without the complication, long-term commitments or difficult methods. Today, let's talk about 3 simple ways to uncompli…
 
Raise your hand if you hate cleaning? I get it. Especially with busy mom lives, cleaning just seems like one more thing to do and a never-ending chore. You clean one room and another is getting messy. One of the pillars here at Mother Like a Boss is simplicity in all things home management. That includes cleaning. In today's episode, I'm giving the…
 
It's been said that comparison is the thief of joy and it couldn't be more true. Social media has made it easier than ever to gaze at the highlight reels that others post and cause us to compare ourselves constantly to them. However, comparison isn't always bad. When we use it as a form of inspiration, it can be joyous. The issue is when we compare…
 
No one gets where they are without taking a million small steps to be there. The same is true in motherhood, in business, working towards your goals, anything. Our children don't learn to run at full speed before they can crawl. Why? Because it's the small steps, the consistency, the learning and mistakes, and follow through where big leaps and ful…
 
Motherhood is such a beautiful gift, but let's be really honest, it can also be lonely. Really lonely. Moms deserve a support system. We deserve a group of other friends and family that cheer us on and encourage us. But where do we start? Let's talk about it. Don't forget to join the Small Steps Society™ waitlist here!…
 
If you're a perfectionist and you know it clap your hands...and a sea of noise erupts There is no shame in the perfectionist game, except when there is. The ego creates a world inside your mind when you should be able to do it all, or nothing at all (like O-Town would say) The problem is, we'll never be able to do it all meaning that the only optio…
 
My boldness is coming out in big ways today and I don't know that it will resonate with everyone. I making a statement here and now because in 2021, I've had enough of mom guilt. I've had enough of the way it makes us feel, the hoops it makes us jump through, the judgement is stabs at our souls. We deserve better than feeling guilty for just existi…
 
I get asked about chores a lot. What chores to give kids, at what ages to start, what to do when they don't do their chores, how to create better chore routines? The truth is, there is no one way that fits every household or lifestyle. What I have found is that when we approach delegation from a place of empowerment versus nagging, the results spea…
 
Yup, we've talked about this topic before and yup, there is another couple of episodes touching on this topic and yup we're talking about it again. It deserves an even deeper discussion because the power of creating momentum in your life versus waiting for motivation to hit you like a bolt of lightning can't be understated. We all want to know how …
 
Time to get organized! (side eye coming at me, I know) Organization has been widely misunderstood for years. You don’t get organized by buying cute baskets from Home Goods or buying the coolest label maker on the market, as much as we all wish that was the case. Organizing your life is all about simple systems that you can duplicate and replicate. …
 
Yup, homemaking still matters in 2021. It mattered last year, it mattered 100 years ago and it will matter 100 years from now (at least, I imagine it will.) Why? Homemaking is nothing more than a cultivation of what matters to you in your life. Because whether you're a mom that works a traditional 9-5, owns a business or stays home to raise her kid…
 
There is no shortage of information on routines these days. Throw a rock on Pinterest and you'll find a blog post, a chore chart, a color-coded schedule or a guru claiming they know the absolute best morning routine that will change your life. The thing is, how do you know what actually works? After 5 years of helping tens of thousands of moms crea…
 
Where my overachievers at? If you grew up getting praise when you did more, you're probably thinking that doing less is lazy. We've been conditioned by a world that tells us that more is better, because doing more is how we prove our worth. This is an episode all about the beauty and power of doing less as a way to feel better; emotionally, mentall…
 
Our beliefs are everything. What we believe about ourselves is everything. Limiting beliefs are the false thoughts that keep us from living the life we want and going for our biggest goals and desires. The problem is that most of us don't know we have limiting beliefs. Our egos convince us that they're true. If you're finding you can't ever break t…
 
We all know what kind of a year 2020 has been, but with all of the challenges we've had, we've also been given a lot of lessons to learn from. This "new year" is going to look different than any in the past, so how do we wrap up a challenging year while preparing ourselves for whatever 2021 has for us?…
 
Oooooo, raise your hand if you're a planner like me? I'm not just talking about that physical hardcover planning calendar you buy every year or the case full of Paper Mate colored flair pens you use to doodle out the future, I mean the hours and hours you spend making plans only to never follow through on them. Life happens, but the thing is, life …
 
How often are you truly taking the time to be happy, for no other reason that it feels good to feel that way? Self worth is difficult for moms who feel like we constantly have to earn the reward of happiness, or gain it from making others happy first. Let's have an honest and powerful discussion about the meaning of worth and the happiness you dese…
 
Calling all the mamas out there who are ready to start a business, but have no idea where to begin. I've started two super successful businesses: one while I was pregnant, 22 years old and totally uneducated about starting a business and another while I was still running my first business, all with a 9 year old and 3 year old in tow. I know a few t…
 
You're in the middle of an important task and your phone dings. You stop what you're doing to check, thinking it's just as important as the task you're doing. Turns out, it was a spam text message. Now you're off track, annoyed and have to switch back to that important task you were doing in the first place. Just because something is urgent does no…
 
"I'll get things done when I'm more confident." How many times have you thought or said this? Here's the issue: confidence comes from consistency. It comes from doing the same thing over and over, imperfectly until one day you realize you're more confident than the day before. But consistency isn't always easy and feels, well, kinda boring. So let'…
 
Do you know the most important relationship you'll ever have the privilege of being involved in? The one you have with yourself. Our relationship with ourselves is life long and yet the one we neglect the most. After many years of neglecting how I treat myself, I'm doing the work to heal brokenness, even when it's messy, even when it's not fun. I d…
 
I'm passionate about helping moms discover and design their own uniquely best lives. That means resetting the bar and what it means for you. You're allowed to create a life that suits your values and vision, whether it fits what the world around you says is best. Your goals should meet you where you are right now without judgement or having to sacr…
 
How often are you "shoulding" on yourself? "I should be doing something different. I should be able to get more done. I should be a better mom. I should stay home. I should work. I should put that laundry away. I should make more money. I should be cleaner. I should, I should I should." Shoulds are obligations. Coulds are possibilities. I don't kno…
 
Goals. We love 'em. We hate 'em. They scare us. They annoy us. Motherhood creates unique challenges, hurdles and struggles, so why are we trying to achieve goals the same way as everyone else? You feel burnt out, overwhelmed and under appreciated, and sitting down to create a list of audacious goals to go after is just one more thing on the to-do l…
 
Your motherhood story is unique to you, but who are you letting write and narrate it? Your past? Your society? Your in-laws? The mommy groups you're a part of on Facebook? If given the opportunity to rewrite the story of how you want to show up in motherhood for yourself and your children, what would it sound like? Let's erase the current narrative…
 
It's Q&A time again and like a fun little mail bag that children's TV hosts would pull audience letters from, I read your messages and DMs to choose the most asked questions. And this one comes up a LOT. Gratitude is great, but what about all that jealousy that bubbles up when you see another woman who has more than you, who has it better than you,…
 
Wanna hear the mindset shifts and a-ha moments from real Mother Like a Boss students? Listen in. We're doing something fun today with a twist on our Mindset Roundup. Instead of hearing from me, I've asked my students to record their biggest mindset shifts and tips to share with our listeners and guys, you do not want to miss this. This is an episod…
 
Ok, we're getting deep mamas. We're talking about the identities we've created for ourselves, the beliefs we hold and the reasons that most of them are complete crap. Ouch! So why do they seem so real? The ego. Whether it's in psychology class or a self-help book or in reference to someone who thinks highly of themselves or even on this podcast, yo…
 
Let's face it: 2020 did a lot of our goals dirty. January 1 seems like a lifetime ago and many of the things we thought we'd be doing got deferred or cancelled. The biggest obstacle to reaching a goal isn't always the outside circumstances, though, it's our inability to let time pass. How do we enjoy the journey, as slow as it may seem, on our way …
 
We did it! We bought our dream home and it only took 10 years for the dream to become a reality. A long time for some, but exactly the right time for us. No dream or goal is realized without a whole lot of blood, sweat, and copious amounts of tears, and I'm breaking it all down in this episode. I had to change a lot of beliefs and thoughts to make …
 
We're doing something new on the Mother Like a Boss™ podcast! We focus heavily on mindset here, so why not do an incredible roundup each month that includes wins from our students, new shifts that I find are working and a few quick and easy tips you can implement right now to shift your beliefs in motherhood and life. Ready to create habits that st…
 
"I just don't feel motivated." How many times have you said this while sitting on the couch, watching another episode of Gilmore Girls, not doing that thing you totally said you were going to do? Samesies, friend. You know why motivation is so hard? Because you're never going to be motivated to do crap you don't want to do, plain and simple. The mo…
 
It's another Q&A episode here at the Mother Like a Boss podcast. I love taking your popular and frequently asked questions and giving you some guidance when I can. As I prepare for my own move into our new house, I figured this was a fitting question to answer. A new home is a fresh start and a great time to revamp old routines, especially cleaning…
 
I'm going to say something that will immediately ruffles some feathers: there have been times in my 13 years as a mom that I've felt resentful of the life I'd created. I'm saying that out loud in the podcast today as a way to start the conversation and end the shame. Resentment is the bi-product of circumstances, mindsets and beliefs and it doesn't…
 
It's our BEST OF series, summer edition. The only thing worse than complaining is the complaining about complaining. This episode is complain-free. Instead, this is an honest discussion about the price we're all paying by living our lives through the lens of negativity and complaints. Complaining is more than just negativity about your situation, i…
 
It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date. Today, we're taking you back to meal planning 101 (even for those of you that really hate meal planning. I see you...) I'll be honest, I have had a love/hate relationship with meal planning over the years. As I dig in deeper to that r…
 
It's "best of" month and we're taking it back in time to some of our most popular and influential episodes to date. Today's episode is packed with practical and valuable tips to make cleaning your home less complicated.
