In case you missed it, I am expecting a son in August and am quickly approaching my due date. Today I’d like to share some insight on how I’ve prepared my business for this exciting transition.

Pregnancy has been a great opportunity to evaluate changes I want to make in my business before my son arrives. There are a few questions I’ve asked myself during pregnancy to help evaluate where I am and where I want to be:

  1. What kind of mom and business owner do I want to be? This is important and helpful because making changes now sets the stage for success later.
  2. How is my business set up, and what needs to be different? Again, focusing on changes before Leo arrives sets the stage for success.

It may be hard to take action when you are anticipating big changes, but really, no matter what the obstacle is, taking action now is the best way to accomplish your mission.

Speaking of people taking action, two expectant mothers recently joined my Business Mastery Certification course. My admiration for these women is tremendous, they knew they wanted to make some changes and went for it! Another inspiring example is a friend of mine, Jane Copeland, who started her successful business on maternity leave.

In this episode, I share crucial steps I’ve taken to prepare for life after a new baby. I’ve spent a lot of energy equipping myself to continue having success in my business and also as a mother. I’m confident my experience will prove helpful. I personally know, good advice makes transitions much happier.

If you are planning to become a mom, pregnant, or experiencing any type of transition this episode will be completely relevant for you!
