Purposeful Social Selling

Money, Marriage, and Motherhood Ep #191

Nov 27, 2023

Choosing to be an entrepreneur while navigating the complexities of motherhood requires an honest conversation. Let’s not sugarcoat it – it can be challenging, and the guilt accompanying it can be overwhelming. Kristen welcomes Jennifer Allwood for an open and candid conversation exploring the challenges entrepreneurial women and moms face, emphasizing the importance of not letting guilt become a hindrance.

In the pursuit of business, mothers might find themselves wrestling with guilt, but the resounding message is clear: Fear is not the boss of you.

Let’s look at a few highlights:

  • Kristen and Jennifer touched upon a common struggle among women – the reluctance to give themselves permission to go all the way. It’s a battle that’s less about permission and more about confronting the fear that often lurks at the surface. 
  • Many women may inadvertently use their roles as mothers as excuses, feeling guilty about pursuing their entrepreneurial aspirations. The key takeaway is clear: It’s impossible to do it all at once, and that’s perfectly okay.
  •  Before being someone’s mom, you were someone. Jennifer encouraged mothers to rediscover and embrace the identity that existed before the journey of motherhood began.
  • The concept of “Entrepreneur Math” comes into play – the strategic art of delegation and prioritization. It’s time to question why certain aspects are undervalued and consciously prioritize what truly matters.
  • A common obstacle women face in their entrepreneurial journey is the fear of success. This fear can manifest as self-sabotage and excuses, hindering us from reaching our full potential.

Motherhood and business don’t have to compete – they can coexist, and by embracing both aspects with intentionality, we can create a life that aligns with our values and aspirations. The entrepreneurship journey intertwined with money, marriage, and motherhood is a multifaceted adventure. It’s about breaking the chains of fear, guilt, and self-sabotage. It’s about giving ourselves permission to be amazing at both, understanding that something will always have to give, and that’s perfectly okay.
