I am here to help you rediscover your passions after becoming a mom and go after them! Because it will help you be a better and happier mom.
This inspired me from a consult call I had today with a potential client. She’s a mom of two, lives with her parents and recently her employer lowered her working hours. Let me just say that during our call she told me “Ros, you have already changed my life”I mean, I love love what I do.
This is why I love mentoring and coaching moms. To help them change their lives! Anyways, I’m so grateful for her.I asked her “what is your dream job?”She said “I love doing radio to help and encourage others, I also love baking and having a little coffee shop with my pastries” She just lit up saying those things!
She worked in radio for 16 years, so it’s still her passion having her own radio show. I asked her “what have stopped you from achieving it?”she told me that people are saying she’s been on the game for too long, to let the young do it. Her mother is her biggest supporter but also her biggest critic. So here’s the thing, I’m sharing this with you because maybe you also have a dream and big goal to achieve.Maybe people, society or your circumstances have not allowed you to take action into making it a reality.
Here’s your chance!

Step 1: Be specific with your goal. What exactly do you want to achieve? lose 20 pounds in 5 months? Practice more selfcare weekly? Start a business in 6 months?
Step 2: Make your goal measurable. In how long do you plan to achieve this goal? How will you know when you have achieved your goal?
Step 3:Attainable. How will you achieve your goal? What new habits do you need to create? What new thoughts do you need to have? What action steps will you take?
Step 4:Make it realistic. Saying you will lose 100 pounds in 1 month is not realistic. You want a goal that will challenge you but also can be attainable.
Step 5: In how much time will you achieve this goal? Set a date for your goals. If you want to lose 20 pounds in 5 months, what will you be doing each month? How many pounds will you need to loose etc?
