This week’s episode is a little different, as I’m giving you a sneaky peek preview of my new book, which launched yesterday!
I’ve loved both my book babies, however this third one has a very special place in my heart for two reasons:
It’s the book I needed when I was starting to think about having a family alongside my first business, which was turning over millions in revenue per year I’ve taken a big leap of faith and shared a LOT of the personal behind-the-scenes story of life over the last couple of years
This book was written from my perspective as a business owner, however the insights, tips and lessons will be just as relevant to any working parent – or someone who has babies on their future horizon.
The first half of the book sees me sharing my personal experiences of deciding to try for, and have a family – including our long journey to get pregnant with Lexi.
Then the second half features my opinions on what I call the “hot button” topics in this new business/baby blend – from why we need to fuck the juggle, to dealing with the mental load – and from overcoming Mum Guilt to the importance of filling our own tanks.
I’m so excited – and not a little nervous – about having this book out in the world, and I so hope my sharing helps you navigate career or business babies with real babies – right now if that’s your world, or in future if it’s something you’re planning for.
For this sneak peak, I wanted to talk about one of the really hot button topics – Mum Guilt. So sit back while I read aloud to you from the first copy of the book from the sofa in my home office…
In this episode I share:
- The 5 reasons that Mum Guilt pisses me off
- Why Mum Guilt is our Inner Mean Girl at her nastiest
- How we deal with Mum Guilt: my short answer and my long answer
- The simple mindset re-frame that I use to stop Mum Guilt in its tracks
