In case you missed how I raved about attending my first Mom 2.0 in May 2017, you can get the recap right here! I attended a session at Mom 2.0 presented by The Mother Company. The content was based on “How to Build a Company from Dream to Reality”. I stuck to the entrepreneur path while at Mom 2.0 because my focus was on streamlining blogging as a business and creating additional streams of income. I had so many ideas and needed to motivation to move forward! The session was truly inspiring.
Abbie & Sam of The Mother Company shared their story with us. They started at the beginning and gave us a trip down memory lane to how The Mother Company got started. They were transparent and shared how it wasn’t perfect and they had some obstacles to overcome before finding what worked for them and their audience. They didn’t allow the obstacles to stop them and over time they were able to build a business that they love. Now, they are a very successful power house! Check out their website!
During our session, we did a small exercise that helped us hone in on our purpose and what we should be focusing our energy on. We also had to write a letter to ourselves that The Mother Company would mail to us at the end of the year. So, we’d get the letter (in about 6 months) just in time for the New Year. I honestly forgot about the letter that I wrote and was caught off guard when I received it in the mail. It was really an eye opener to see what I had written and how far I’ve come along.
Here’s what I wrote to myself on 5/10/17: “Dear Jen, I know things may seem uncertain now but don’t quit. In 6 months things can change and you can work towards your dream. Successful T-Shirt Company, Multiple Streams of Income and published author. You can do it!” I was so motivated after attending Mom 2.0 that I went home and created my online boutique, finished my e-book and joined some affiliate networks to add additional streams of income. Surprisingly, I hit every goal on my dream list!
Tip: Write down your goals, work towards them and say them out loud. You will speak your goals and manifest them into existence. Don’t overthink things and just do it! I loved the exercise that we did and it allowed me to look back and see what I could accomplish within a six-month span. I want to thank The Mother Company for a phenomenal session at Mom 2.0 and this “letter to self” exercise. It was refreshing to see it at the beginning of a new year. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me!
