Hustle season – OUT.
Thank goodness. It was long. And hard. And so wonderful. But I’ve been tired…
As Adam and I were driving home the other night from dinner, the moment I realized my hustle season had officially ended, he asked me if I could list off all the things that we did during Hustle.
And as I did, I realized that I really needed to write them down, solely so I could look back on this one day and know, “Yes you can, Nicole. Yes you can.”
I kept talking, like normal, to Adam, and when he pulled into the driveway, he looked at me and literally dropped his jaw.
“That’s so much. Even I had no idea you did that much.”
No wonder I’ve been so freakin’ tired.
But as I transition into this season of Rest, I’m feeling so excited and relieved and rested already.
Earlier, during Hustle, I reached a tipping point and almost had a burn out, but made it through. I was so disappointed when that moment hit me, and I realized I wasn’t done with what I wanted to do during my season. I felt angry, disappointed in myself, and tired. I didn’t want this to be over.
So I kept going, and friend, it was so worth it. Because this time, when I realized I was ending Hustle, I felt HAPPY.
I felt proud and accomplished and relieved. Much better emotions than before.
I am so looking forward to this season of Rest. I have some projects, soul projects, for this season that I’m excited about. Like painting the kitchen cabinets and cooking and reading and moving my office home.
But as I wrap my own brain around all of this, I realize that there is so much I haven’t really shared with all of you, my amazing tribe!
And while this little list doesn’t contain the entire hustle, it’s the big ones, and I’m so excited to officially share most of them.
We launched The Mompreneur LLC!
And though this is basically just a name for legal purposes, The Mompreneur LLC is going to be doing some pretty amazing stuff. Such as:
The JoJo infant and toddler lounger and cosleeper.
Adam and I have designed a brand new, and pretty perfect, baby sleeper! Designed right here in our living room and inspired by Joey, of course, the JoJo is the baby sleeping secret. Similar in purpose to the renowned DockATot or SnuggleMe, the JoJo is meant to provide a safe and secure, and most importantly effective, place for baby to sleep. More details to drop soon, but this is what you need to know right now:
The JoJo will be launching next month, and will be available on our own site as well as Amazon!
We will be giving a way a whoooooole bunch of them right off the bat in exchange for some verified reviews on Amazon, so if you want one for free, you should jump on the bandwagon HERE.
The JoJo is a safe and perfect sleeping space for newborns up to over 2 years old. We have had babies on day 1 fall asleep and stay asleep wonderfully, all the way to toddlers (Joey still sleeps in his, and our friend’s 3 year old sleeps in hers too!)
Mompreneur : The Course!
This is my favorite, you guys. Mompreneur : The Course is now available, and I swear, it’s the best course out there. Here’s why:
I made this course myself, from scratch, and from experience.
I’m working with the first group of mommas now to create the rest of the course to fit exactly what every mompreneurs needs are. Nothing, and I mean nothing, will be left out.
It’s a do-at-your-own-pace, but an entire YEAR’S worth of content, of course, broken down by mompreneur seasons – Hustle, Rest, Growth and Pruning.
I am moving out of the studio in Chico and working from home full time.
I’ve never done this working from home thing, but I’m feeling so at peace about this decision and timing. We are working on making a little office in the house and getting it all together as a serene place for me to do my thing.
The Mompreneur Podcast
If you have been living under a rock, you may not know this. But nonetheless, it's true! Sweet Rachel and I have a podcast and it's awesome. You should listen every Monday. We're pretty funny if I do say so myself.
So, friends, that is the gist of it. And there’s A LOT of little things within all those things, but these are def the top badass things we’ve been able to do in the last 3 months.
I’m so excited to take you all on this journey with me and my little family! What a total honor.
