EPISODE 13: USING YOUR MOMMY TIME WISELY!



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am sharing the story of why I began working with MONAT.

After my mother’s second cancer battle I decided that I only wanted to use products that were healthy, paraben and chemical free.

Ingredients that would not hurt us internally or externally and would be safe for our whole family.

I am also breaking down a few myths of direct sales and network marketing. There are no pyramid schemes here my friends. Just an incredible opportunity to work for companies on your own time.

There is an incredible amount of opportunity working with companies like this. Both freedom wise and monetarily.

My biggest piece of advice is to make sure you do your homework and to find the best products and company that you truly believe in and enjoy using daily.

Please feel free to share this episode with someone who needs this type of content. Someone who may be looking to start that side hustle and fill up that mommy time with a new business venture that is filled with passion and productive pockets of time well spent.

Better yet a new full-time endeavor from the convenience and simplicity of your cell phone and at home or on the go.

EPISODE 11: DOING IT SCARED!



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am talking all about how to learn to trust yourself more.

I want you to feel the fear, be terrified and do that one thing that has been on your to-do list.

Or maybe it is some unbelievable offer you simply cannot pass up? Do it scared!

I know this tactic may seem a bit odd…

However, this is how we all learn and grow from situations that come at us like this.

I’m also sharing how my Marketing Professor position came into play last year. I seriously could not be and feel prouder to be teaching and preparing our next future leaders of tomorrow.

EPISODE 10: MOM’S CANCER JOURNEY AND MY MINDSET STORY



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now I am finally going to share a bit of my Mom’s cancer story.

I am going to get into the anger, the surgery, the radiation, the chemo and all the lessons learned throughout this time that have made me a much stronger woman for my family and friends.

The reason for sharing all of this is because it is really how and why the Own Your Pretty Now brand began.

After our family’s health crisis we wanted to make ourselves more aware of the beauty products we were using.

We wanted healthier and paraben free. We wanted to be using products that were safe for us and our families.

That is when I was introduced to Monat and Younique products.

Monat is a Vegan line which our family now uses, and we could not be happier.

Please feel free share this episode with someone who needs this type of content. This is the whole reason this podcast has been created.

EPISODE 6: ANTI-COMPARISON MINDSET



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am talking about mindset, personal development and comparison.

I am going to continue to be vulnerable with you as that is the best way to share my honest thoughts on these topics. I am going to tell you why staying home full time with my new baby just wasn’t going to work for me.

In business we trust our gut and I needed to teach myself to do the same as a new Mom. I decided to change the narrative, have a strong mind and make decisions that I knew would be the best for myself and my family.

My life had changed, and I was just not prepared for this new job. I was just not this new person. A new Mom! I had to take control of what I was always assuming and consuming and make my new priorities my own. I had to stop comparing myself to others who have been in this amazing role before me. I needed to make this one my own which you will hear more of on the show.

EPISODE 5: SLIPPING INTO THE DARKNESS



In this Episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast I am feeling and sharing all kinds of mixed emotions. I’m getting a bit more personal and serious in this discussion.

However, underneath it all there is some excitement. I promise! So please be sure to listen until the very end.

Today I am going to share with you my experience with postpartum depression. What I was able to do for both my son and I so that we could be and feel much happier on a day to day basis.

I will also be going over some of the nursing techniques I used with my son. Everyone’s body is different so please keep in mind this is only what helped me. I’ll also be sharing more about how I had to change my diet throughout this journey.

Being able to hire a lactation consultant, learning how to eat properly (and more often) was the key to elevating my mood besides a few others I mention in the show.

Your body goes through a lot after having a baby. Between the anxiety, depression, sleepless nights and baby cries you may feel like it will never end. It does. And I am here to be the hope that you need. The voice of someone who has already gone through it. This is why I am sharing my story now. So I can be that voice for you or someone else that you may know.

I want to remind you that action wins every time. Please know that I am only a message away if you ever need someone to talk to. Call a family or friend when you are down. Ask for the help that you need and let them help pick you back up.

Taking action is what will allow you to get back where you once were. Feeling good!

EPISODE 4: CONFIDENCE WITHOUT COMPROMISE!



In this episode of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast we are celebrating my birthday and the road I’ve traveled over the past year. One that was filled with a lot of surprises and the unexpected.
Come along for the ride and listen as I share some pretty monumental moments that I have encountered. How to build a business with heart and confidence and without the compromise is something that really makes my heart smile.
I am pulling back the curtain on this episode and letting you into my life a bit more.
We’re friends now right?
One big moment for me this past year was changing careers. Just when I thought I had mapped out “my plan” this amazing blessing fell into my lap. One that fueled my passion in a whole new way. One that I didn’t know that I absolutley needed at that exact moment in my life.
It is SO crazy when that happens…
However, the Entrepreneur in me did not rest and everything found it’s place. You have to trust yourself and the process and know that if you put in the effort everything will always work out the way it should.
Own it, don’t be afraid and know that you are always capable of more! Don’t be surprised if everything starts falling into place when your thoughts start becoming actions.
Be clear with your vision and don’t forget that everything is figureoutable and will always happen when you are ready for the change. You may not think or feel it at the time but the universe always knows.
This is why you have to trust the process of life. Tune in to listen to some more work/life journies that I have been so lucky to have been a part of over this past year.

In the meantime, you can always find me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow. Share with me some of your goals you would like to reach by your next birthday. Let’s keep ourselves accountable.
