Any mom will tell you how going through pregnancy and the birth process changed them. Read more about How Having a Natural Birth Prepared Me For Starting My Own Business.
Natural Birth & Starting a Business…
Those two aren’t often seen as going hand in hand… right?
But when I had my first baby… something changed inside me
Going through that process taught me some lessons that prepared me for when I started working from home a few years later.
Here’s my top Three Things I learned through Natural Birth
It’s okay to look crazy.
See… I learned it was okay to do what I wanted even if everyone else thought I was crazy
I didn’t know anyone who had planned a home birth before when I was pregnant with Aidalyn… but after doing research, I knew that was the experience I wanted.
I knew that to get what I really wanted… I was not going to be considered “normal” – But normal is boring anyways
With my business, I knew I may get some crazy looks or have some people think I was crazy.
But after 4 years of doing this, I’m so thankful that I didn’t let what other people’s opinions of me stop me from accomplishing all that we have!
Quitting our jobs, moving closer to home, finding our purpose, helping families all over the world live better and find financial freedom and that’s just the beginning
Always invest in yourself.
This was one area I had ZERO experience… I knew that I was going to have to learn all that I could and that’s what I did!
It was okay to not know everything when I started… but I didn’t have to stay that way.
I read a lot of books.
I watched documentaries.
I took classes.
I learned that birth – and natural birth – is sometimes such a mental game. And I was going to need to go in prepared…
With my business… I was the same way. I had zero experience – but I knew I could learn a new skill!
Anything you want to do your best in, you gotta invest in yourself
Know the power of having a great & supportive team.
I knew that if I was going to face labor… knowing it was not going to be all rainbows and roses
I would need a team to support me and keep me accountable for the experience I wanted… even if I wanted to quit at times.
Yes, I yelled “I NEED A BREAK” at one point and I’m thankful my midwife was right there to help me through.
With my business… like anything… there are ups and downs.
There are AMAZING days…
and days you need a team to say “You got this!” “Your dreams are worth it!” “It starts with one!”
