“You have to be able to ask for and accept help. Our culture and society has ingrained in women that we are the nurturers and givers and there’s not a lot of reciprocity there, and that’s why people reach burnout. That’s why people quit. It feels like too much and that’s why we need to be willing to get that help."

Have you ever found yourself wondering: is it actually possible to run a successful business and be the parent and partner I want to be without burning out?

We sat down with Lauren Golden— founder of The Free Mama Movement—to dig into that question and get her strategies of controlling the chaos as a Mama of three and a business owner.

In this episode, we hear Lauren’s story leading up to her taking the plunge into freelancing, and then launching The Free Mama Movement to help other Mamas do the same. She then walks us through very practical strategies that you can implement today to balance both your professional and personal life. We talk about why it’s important to ask for help, the need to outsource tasks in and out of your business, and how you can find a system that works for you and your family. She explains why self-care is so important, what she practices for self-care, and how to find what fills your cup so you can set yourself up for success.

This episode is for you if:

  • You love the idea of freelancing or consulting, but have a hard time understanding how it all fits together with all of the other moving pieces of your life.
  • You’re feeling overwhelmed with the juggle of business ownership and parenthood and need practical strategies to implement right away to help alleviate the overwhelm.
  • You find it helpful to hear other parent’s success stories as they’ve moved from the traditional workforce and into a solo career.
