Pin it for later

As we close out 2018, I am in AWE about all the dreams, goals and ambitions of the Crushing Motherhood tribe, including my clients, Mother Crusher Guide readers, and those who join us on social media.

I want to take this last post of 2018 to CELEBRATE all of you!

In this post, I’ll share:

  • A (partial) list of the INCREDIBLY INSPIRING projects, goals, and dreams I’ve heard from so many of you
  • The new (free) Corporate Moms Club where we can interact, support and encourage each other
  • 1 Tip to Go Big in 2019
  • Your 4 Next Steps – Take Action
  • Free Ultimate Goals Planner and Achievement Framework download (see very bottom of this post)

Look at this crazy amount of inspiration from 2018

2018 has been incredibly inspiring, and I can’t wait to see what we all accomplish in 2019!

Here are some highlights of what the Mother Crusher Guide readers and coaching clients have been working toward this year. Are you as inspired by this list as I am?

  1. Building a children’s museum from the ground up
  2. Starting a consulting business focused on non-profits
  3. Starting a fundraiser that is turning into a wildly successful business
  4. Going back to work after a hiatus with the kids
  5. Changing a career path to one that is more family-friendly = a complete reinvention!
  6. Leaving a company after 10+ years to pursue new opportunities, to take growth and leadership to the next level
  7. Laying the foundation of a consulting business, in parallel to working in a VP level job
  8. Scaling a small business (there are several of you working on this…so exciting!)
  9. Adding new services to an existing business
  10. Branching out to create side-gigs
  11. Delegating and embracing the skill of letting go
  12. Researching and documenting family genealogy while living in Europe
  13. Switching from executive leadership to individual contributor, to gain more balance
  14. Opening a brand new retail store – I think it took 45 days from the time of the idea to the opening!
  15. Laser-focused on landing a role in a Broadway show
  16. Going back to school – Harvard, Johns Hopkins, on-line MBAs, certificate programs, so many!

There are SO many inspiring stories I’ve heard from you this year, and I can’t thank you enough for the opportunity to share in your goals and dreams.

Introducing A New Community Where We Can Support Each Other’s Dreams, Help With Challenges, and Encourage Each Other as Working Moms

In honor of this inspiration and to spread this movement, I am launching the Corporate Mom Club on Facebook!

This is a free Facebook group that will be a safe place for:

  • Sharing wins and celebrating each other
  • Posting questions to ask for advice and ideas from other ambitious women
  • A way to pose sticky situations and get feedback on how to handle them (anonymously if you prefer)
  • Sharing resources and inspiration
  • Periodic challenges to help you stay on track with your goals, habits, and routines

Click on this link to join the (free) Club. I literally just finished setting this up today, so you’ll be among the first to join. I can’t wait to talk to you more and have you meet each other over there!

Are you ready for a BIG 2019?…1 Tip for You.

Are you tired of playing small?

I know I hit this wall in the middle of last year where I was tired of playing small, worrying about failure, and wanting everything to be perfect before I dipped my toe in the water to start.

No more of that!

The one tip I can share for a BIG 2019, one of goal-getting, dream-pursuing, and amazing results, is to PLAN TO FAIL.


Figure out the BIG thing you want and then plan out how you are going to fail at getting it. Take the pain, frustration and fear out of failure.

Make it a game.

Go all in.

What BIG goal will you set? What will you pursue with reckless abandon? What will you celebrate failing?

My BIG goal is to make $250k in my coaching business. This is a HUGE leap for me but I’m all in.

I have 10 likely fails pre-planned per month. Things like:

  • Do everything I plan to do, in order, every day even when I’m not in the “mood”
  • Meet 100 new people per month
  • Be a guest on 10 podcasts
  • Constrain myself to working 40 hours per week

Leave me a comment below and let me know what you’ve planned!

In this post, we covered:

1) I want to dedicate today’s post to the INSPIRATIONAL work YOU’VE shared in 2018. I can’t even begin to describe how exciting it is to see other ambitious moms follow their dreams, to step outside the box and take risks. I LOVE hearing all the details, challenges, and wins along the way, both as a coach and cheerleader!

2018 has been incredibly inspiring, and I can’t wait to see what we all accomplish in 2019!

3) If you’re ready to go big in 2019, pick a HUGE goal and then set yourself up for failure.

  • Yep, that was what I meant. It’s not a typo.
  • What actions can you take that get you closer to your goal but will most likely fail?
  • This will take the sting and fear out of failure and get you moving toward something BIG and meaningful!

Did You Know?

I’m a success coach for corporate moms.

If you’re reading this, my bet is that you’re an ambitious mom who wants all she can out of life, for herself and for her family.

But, like so many other moms, you might be feeling

  • Exhausted,
  • Overwhelmed,
  • Spread too thin, 
  • That you’ll never get back on track to the high achiever you used to be.
  • You’re in survival mode.
  • You might be feeling like you’re failing at everything as a result.

I can relate. I used to be all of these things (and more). But, then I found a coach who helped me get exactly what I wanted 

  • Achievement
  • Belief in myself and my new identity (one that incorporates but isn’t defined by motherhood)
  • Purpose
  • Direction
  • Clarity
  • Results

I help other ambitious moms do the same thing.

I work with other ambitious moms like you to create and execute the mindset, strategies and routines that are required get out of survival mode and achieve your goals, both personally and professionally.

Think of it as a re-set for ambitious moms, like you, who want to maximize what you do, who you are, and all you impact, to make the most out of your life. Do you want to:

  • Regain control of your current career path
  • Create better balance (don’t believe the naysayers, it is possible)
  • Migrate to an alternative career path such as part-time or
  • Build your own consulting business

The first step is a complimentary Strategy Session where we talk about your goals, your obstacles and create a mini action plan for you. 

Click this link to APPLY FOR your free Strategy Session. 

This is time focused on you and your goals, and how to get to the next level.
