Here’s the Power Seat’s challenge:

“I am a serial entrepreneur. I love to work.

I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but was surprised when I got pregnant.

I now have a 2.5 year old at home.

I struggle because I don’t have an idea of what I want ‘being a mom’ to look like.

I am on an adventure figuring out my roles, mom, wife, and all my other roles, etc…

My son just started to go to day care and I love it. It gives me some freedom.

I struggle with being a good mom, being myself, chasing my dreams, being a good wife.

I want to be there unconditionally, but can’t do it if I am with him every single day.

I feel really torn inside every day.

I haven’t defined what it means to be a mom.

It’s a tender spot inside because I haven’t figured out and some days it’s scary.

I am having a tough time finding the balance of being a mom and my work.

I love what I do and I truly feel like I’m trying to save the world at work.

Balancing the two is a real struggle.

I have a lot of expectations. I put a lot on my mom and step-mom growing up.

I have a big fear if my child has the same expectations and how do I deliver.

I have never thought I’d be a stay at home mom, never crossed her mind.

I have a lot of expectations of others and now I’m afraid he’ll have those expectations of me.

HOW DO I define what I want being a mom to look like for me?

I don’t know where to start.

I am worried I have to give up myself to define what I do and don’t want 'being a mom' to look like."
