3 Strategies for Pursuing Your Dreams Without Mom Guilt

When I gave birth to our daughter, Penelope, I found the whole experience shocking. So shocking that I wasn’t ready to tell my birth story in any public capacity for a surprisingly long time.

Here’s why: it’s a really hard story to tell, and it just didn’t seem relevant.

Until now.

I want to tell the story of how Penelope came into the world because I think it can help you. This is a story that I’ll be sharing with you in my FREE online class coming up called 3 Strategies for Pursuing Your Dreams Without Mom Guilt.

It can help you because birth is a metaphor for everything we make in the world, and it has profound lessons for all of us. It’s an example that we can use in both life and business.

We have forgotten some of the most fundamental truths about how the creation process works, and in order to run businesses and lives that work, we need to remember these fundamental truths.

Becoming a mother unravelled me in ways I apparently needed in order to approach life in a whole new way.

This new approach has resulted in:

  • Profound creative satisfaction
  • Working less yet achieving more
  • Feeling like there’s more than enough time to do the things I want to do
  • Knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that it’s possible to be a great mother and pursue my dreams at the same time

There weren’t any classes on thriving as a nurturer and entrepreneur at any of the schools I attended. So I’ve created one based on my lived experience and working with a group of nearly 1,000 entrepreneurial moms over the last several months (and in it I’m finally telling my birth story, along with 3 practical strategies that you can use to thrive as a mom and entrepreneur, no matter where you are on the trajectory of either).

You’re invited to join me for a free online class next week called:

3 Strategies for Pursuing Your Dreams Without Mom Guilt

During this class I’ll share:

  • 3 reasons why women who nurture are ideally wired for business success (and how to use them to your advantage)
  • How to operate within the new model of sustainable success that helps you achieve your dreams without stress or exhaustion
  • The 4 phases of sustainable success
  • How you can experience more energy without having to make dramatic lifestyle changes, get more sleep, or caffeinate yourself
  • A specific action plan for bigger results with less effort in your business (and life!)

When I taught this class for the first time this past spring, the reception was overwhelmingly positive.

Here’s what one participant, Kelly Ryan, had to say:

“Hi Kate, I had tears in my eyes relating to your every word! I’m the mother of an 18-month-old boy and have recently started a yoga studio, and your words are hitting home and resonating deeply! I can’t wait to dive in!”

See you in class!



P.S. If you’re feeling exhausted and like you’re going to have to sacrifice either your own dreams or your mothering in order to make it all work, this class is for you. You can have what you want, but not within the model we’ve all been taught. Join me in class to learn the new model for more ease and more flow.

I originally dreamed up Origin™ for women like me who are raising kids and running a business at the same time.

How to Do Less When You Have Way Too Much to Do

This summer my “Do Less” philosophy has been biting me in the ass. If I were to give this summer a title it would be “The Summer of More.” I didn’t intend to have a summer that was bursting at the seams, but that’s what happened. We kicked off by launching Origin™ with the most moving parts…

There’s No Such Thing As Being Behind

I’ve never been part of any group of people doing anything where there wasn’t at least one person who felt behind. They hadn’t completed all the reading. They hadn’t yet gotten their period. They hadn’t been kissed. Or asked out. Or asked to dance. They hadn’t watched all the videos or completed all of the…

Privilege, Discomfort, and the Courage to Pay Attention

I was walking out of the West African Dance class that I TA’d in college when a tall, slim African-American guy from class caught up to me on the green. He was dressed all in white with these gauzy, drawstring pants that gave his whole style a timeless quality. He had big hair and nice…

It’s All Part Of It

The other day I was really enjoying the process of doing my makeup but also feeling like I should really get to work on my burgeoning to-do list. I mean, applying makeup isn’t exactly a revenue-generating activity for me. But then I stopped myself and thought: Enjoying the process of adorning myself is self care….
