4 Ways to Financially Prepare for 2021

Happy Monday!

As I reflect on my financial goals

Where I came from, where I am currently, where I want to go.

I can honestly say that I see a lot of growth.

I came a long way!

One of the major realizations that I have had is that managing and growing your finances is all about your mindset.

You really have to go from a mindset of poverty, lack, and instant gratification to a mindset of wealth, abundance, and patience, especially when you come from where I come from.

This journey is easier said than done.

Most people who are mentally living in a state of poverty are

  1. okay with it  
  2. don’t even realize they living in it

Managing and growing your finances is also about ACTION!

Diabetes: Our Story

Hey hey!

Did you know November is Diabetes Awareness Month?

If not, it’s cool.

I probably wouldn’t have paid it any mind myself, until Diabetes came and disrupted our family like a thief in the night.

I remember the series of events like yesterday.

My boyfriend and I noticed that our daughter was drinking a lot!

Somedays she would drink 16oz bottles of water in less than 15 seconds.

Then she started peeing heavily through the night. She was going through pampers like crazy. Some nights she would wake up drenched. I thought it was because she was drinking so much.

I am sure that played a part but that was not the only reason.

After looking on Google, I realized that it could be a few things, but Diabetes kept coming up.

I knew at that time, that there was a high chance of my daughter having Diabetes.

During this time, my daughter got sick and she would not get better.

We ended up taking her to the hospital.

At the hospital that is when we were told that she had Diabetes.

Her sugar was close to 600.

I was devastated but couldn’t show it.

Honestly, I didn’t know how to respond at that moment.

I didn’t know too much about the disease so I figured that we would just change her diet and everything would be cool.

Then they said that she had to stay.

My baby ended up staying in the hospital for a week. She spent her 2nd birthday there.

During that week, I had to learn about the dis-ease , how to administer insulin, counting carbs, and so much more ,

I had to learn how to take care of a baby that I birthed, I was hurt.

That was a hard pill to swallow.

The day my daughter was admitted into the hospital changed our life forever

My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.

That mean she is insulin dependent.

They say this is something that she will have to deal with her whole life.

I don’t speak that over her life.

I plan to continue to do the research and do the best that I can to ensure that my daughter is given the tools that she needs to combat this disease.

If you are a Momp with a child with diabetes or any other special needs, I would love to hear your story.

Boss Mom: Find Your Tribe of Support.

Hey hey!

Happy Wednesday!

It’s a great day to be your own BOSS!

I normally say it is a great day to be alive, but I switched it up today lol.

Any who, let’s get into it

I know you have dreams of being of your own boss.

You want to spend more time with your family, be in control of your own time, and live life on your own terms.

I get it.

I was there.

The thing is tho’.

For this to happen to you

You cannot do it by yourself.

You need a support system.

In order for me to work long hours, attend business and personal development conferences, travel for leisure, engage in self-care practices, or do whatever else I have and want to do.

I have to have help.

If I didn’t I would go crazy.

Now I understand that everybody isn’t in the perfect situation.

I get it.

But if you are a mom with big dreams, goals, and aspirations.

It is imperative that you find a way to get the support that you need.

Mentally, Physically, & Spiritually.

Don’t allow your everyday task to get in the way of you bringing your BMD (before mom days) dreams into fruition.

 Being an involved MOM is a lot.

Adding employee, spouse, entrepreneur and whatever else we decide to do with our time can take a person out!

You have to create an environment where you are supported, so that you can have a chance at achieving the success you want.

Support comes in many ways.

You may need someone to watch your children while you handle your business.

You may need support in learning skills to help elevate you in your career/business.

You may need support with learning investment strategies.

You may need support with getting your thoughts together and changing your habits.

You need support. You can’t grow and elevate by yourself

Think about your life right now.

What are you struggling with in life right now?

This is a great start in figuring out where you currently need to be supported the most.
