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 â€œHow to Build a Company from Dream to Realityâ€. 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 wasnâ€™t perfect and they had some obstacles to overcome before finding what worked for them and their audience. They didnâ€™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, weâ€™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 Iâ€™ve come along.
Hereâ€™s what I wrote to myself on 5/10/17: â€œDear Jen, I know things may seem uncertain now but donâ€™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!â€ 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. Donâ€™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 â€œletter to selfâ€ exercise. It was refreshing to see it at the beginning of a new year. I canâ€™t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me!
