Sometimes you feel like you aren't moving as fast as you would like to go. When you are a very ambitious woman, you are very driven, have goals, and have a vision for your life. Sometimes it can feel like you're so far away from where you want to be. And it can become frustrating while you're homeschooling because you know that takes up some of your time and some of your day.

Now, this podcast episode is not to be negative at all about where you are. But what I want to do is give you some tools that you can reach for and use when you are going through these challenges, these frustrations, and you feel like you aren't moving as fast as you would like to be moving.
You know, being a homeschool mom matters to you. But you also know that your goals matter to you. Your business matter to you. If you're married, your marriage matters to you. So there are so many things pulling for your time, your attention, and your energy. And there's also a lot going on in the world in the social climate. And it's hard to ignore it. Even though, thankfully, we've carved out many of us have carved out our own life at home, which is fantastic.
But you know, sometimes I know for me when I pay attention to what's going on. Sometimes if I spend too much attention on it, it can slow me down as well.

So I know I was dealing with a bit of frustration because there were so many things that needed to be done in the business. You know, something on my website broke, and things weren't functioning the way I wanted them to be working. Then I set up or reset my email marketing because I moved from ConvertKit to Active Campaign. So still setting all that up, and then setting up my automation, adding a few new offers to what I provide the services that I provide. All of those things, you know, can make you feel like, oh, I am so behind, especially in the season, where a lot of businesses are planning for Black Friday. So I have to permit myself to say, you know what, you are doing what you can, you are working hard. And if you try to move faster than you can at the moment, you're going to skip steps.
