Knowing how to discern God’s voice from the noise and take action in your business is key to your success. In this episode, you’ll learn 5 ways to start tuning your heart to the prompting of the Holy Spirit so you can get clarity on the decisions you need to make in your business.

Ep 10 - 2020 Reflection and Looking Forward to What God is Doing in Your Business in 2021

Ep 10 - 2020 Reflection and Looking Forward to What God is Doing in Your Business in 2021

December 30, 2020

As we wrap up 2020, there’s a tendency to think that 2021 is going to be magically better than 2020 or if we follow what the world is saying, then we’ll think that nothing good came of 2020. But we know that God can do good and amazing things no matter what the circumstances look like. As we come to the end of the year, it’s a habit to look forward to the next year and start planning and dreaming all of the things that we can do. While this is good and fun, I want to encourage you to really get your mind in the right place before you start all the planning for next year. Make sure you’re co-creating these goals with God and see where He really wants you to go. It might not be where you’ve got in mind.

Episode Highlights: 

  • Make sure you’re thinking of your business as an actual business looking at profit and loss. Being a good steward of your money and resources is something God put you in charge of when He called you to have a business. 
  • Embrace that He called you to be an entrepreneur, so own it. 
  • Create goals for next year after you’ve prayed and sought God’s intention with your business
  • Choose a word of the year as an overarching mood for your year coming up 
  • Map out plans for how you might achieve these goals, but don’t plan to control the situation. 
  • Action steps you can take moving forward to make sure you’re involving God in your business plan moving forward

 

I hope you’ll take these concepts today and really apply them to your 2021 plans and goals so that you can be really open to what God wants you to do moving forward.

Ep 9 - Recognizing when God is calling you and how to say YES

Ep 9 - Recognizing when God is calling you and how to say YES

December 23, 2020

In this episode, we’re going to talk about why you might not be fully stepping into the calling God has for you.

There can be a variety of reasons including not even knowing if God is calling you to start a business or not. When we aren’t clear on how God speaks to us, we often miss it when He does.

For others, you know that God has put something big on your heart, but you’re coming face to face with all sorts of doubts and worries around it. Whichever place you’re in, this episode is going to help you recognize that God is calling you (and how to see it), where you might be turning away from your calling, and how you can use mentorship and support to be in obedience to what God is asking you to do in this season. 

Special mention this episode: If you need help with figuring out what you’re calling is or how you can turn it into a business, book a FREE 45-min breakthrough session with me at www.mamawithacalling.com/coaching. Limited number of these!

Ep 8- Stepping boldly where God is calling you (even if it’s a whole new life and others doubt you)

Ep 8- Stepping boldly where God is calling you (even if it’s a whole new life and others doubt you)

December 5, 2020

Sometimes God will ask you to switch gears in life to be someone you've never been before. Always a career woman and now being called to be home with the kids. Always a work-a-holic and now striving for balance. Well meaning people around you might doubt the change. You have the choice to either get up and walk to let your old ways define who you are even though God is calling you to change your life by doing something you've never been able to do before. If He's calling you, then He will empower you. 

 

The story for this episode comes from John 5:1-9 CSB

 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Read the story of the healing at the pool in John 5:1-9
  • How this looks like the life of being called to pivot to become an entrepreneur
  • Doubters and how it can impact you
  • Choosing to get up and walk or not 

 

I hope this look at this story about Jesus asking a man that’s been disabled for 38 years to get up and walk encourages you as you face the decision to follow God’s calling or not. It might be scary or feel crazy, but if He’s calling then you should go.

Welcome and What’s this podcast all about

Welcome and What’s this podcast all about

November 1, 2020

Welcome to  the Mama with a calling podcast where we’re going to dive into what it looks like to have God call you to completely pivot in life from career woman to online entrepreneur.

Facing and overcoming fears comes with asking some hard questions around what it really means to become an entrepreneur and what it looks like to step out in faith and trust where God is leading you. 

This is why I wanted to do this show - to help you take a deep dive into these questions, the fears that come up, why you think the things you do and how to overcome those fears with truths from the bible mixed with practical tips based on how the brain works.  

On this podcast, we’ll talk about all things around entrepreneurship and what it looks like as a Christian pursuing this calling, mom life, productivity, and truly how to just keep going even when things get tough or boring or whatever comes up for you. The biblical insights that I use to keep myself going are things I’ll be sharing with you as well. You’ll also get to hear from women that have made the pivot from their career and how God called them to do that. I’ll also bring on experts in things like creating systems, the enneagram and more that will help you as you're on this journey. 

 

God’s calling you to something big and I'm here to keep you going so the world can experience what you have to offer. I can't wait to see how God uses you to make a big impact.

Ep 7 - One Simple Thing You Can Do To Recharge and Reconnect with God When Things Feel Crazy

October 21, 2020

Life can already feel chaotic as a mom with all the to-dos, and then throw in being an entrepreneur, and it can be exhausting. Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, and burnt out are real issues that so many mom entrepreneurs face. Especially if you’re a determined and motivated person, you can be prone to working yourself so hard that you forget to do something that helps you recharge for all the things you’re doing. I know this has happened to me so many times, and in today’s episode, I’m sharing my simple method for reducing stress and overwhelm, recharging and reconnecting with God. 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Welcome to the Mama with a Calling podcast
  • How this podcast is going to help you
  • My story from working mom to mom entrepreneur
  • How God doesn’t just call anyone to do this

 

I hope my story encourages you to keep making steps toward your calling.

Ep-6-Overcoming-Impostor-Syndrome-As-You-Pursue-Your-Calling

Ep-6-Overcoming-Impostor-Syndrome-As-You-Pursue-Your-Calling

September 15, 2020

Are you feeling that God is calling you to do something big and scary in your life, but you’re resisting it big time? It feels like you’re not the right person for the job or that it’s a crazy idea or that you can’t possibly have the skills needed.

In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about how when God calls you to do something, you can take comfort in knowing that He’s with you through it all. He’s prepared you for this specific mission, and he called you out of all people for a reason. 

To help with impostor syndrome, we’re going to take a look at the story of Moses and the burning bush in a new light.  From this story, we can see how to take comfort even when we’re doubting our abilities to do what we know we’re being called to do. 

 

The story for this episode comes from Exodus 3:1 - 4:17 NLT

 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Moses denies God’s call on his life
  • God assures Moses over and over
  • When God chooses someone, He really means that person is the one. There’s not a replacement person for the job. 
  • Amazing things happen when you listen to the calling from God. Overcoming the fear and doubt is part of the process. On the other side is a closer connection with God and being able to see how God uses your obedience for good. 
  • If God is calling you, he has prepared you and He is with you. He already knows the outcome. You just have to act. 

 

I hope this look at this story about Moses encourages you as you come up against imposter syndrome, doubt and fear as you hear God nudging you to pivot in your life.

Ep 4: 4 Major Hurdles To Overcome on Your Entrepreneurial Journey

Ep 4: 4 Major Hurdles To Overcome on Your Entrepreneurial Journey

August 17, 2020

As you're navigating this new call on your life, there are lots of obstacles that will come up for you along the way. These come up for anyone that's making a career change but you're not just making a career change. You're stepping into your God-given calling and taking back your life by starting a business so you can be with your kids more. It can be a lot. 

I'm sharing all of my learned lessons with you in this episode of the Mama With A Calling. 

In this episode, we’re going to talk about the 4 major hurdles you'll have to overcome as you start down the road of becoming an entrepreneur. 

These are things that are going to get in your way and, if you're not prepared, will trip you up. That's why this podcast is going to focus on all 4 of these areas to help as you're stepping into your calling. 

 

Episode Highlights: 

 

  • What are these hurdles and why they matter
  • The four major areas you'll find these hurdles in
  • Looking more at the types of things that can come up in each of the four major areas that could be problematic (For more resources and help with these, check out the blog at www.mamawithacalling.com)
  • It's not all doom and gloom. Yes there are obstacles, but you've got this podcast to prepare you for anything that comes up.

Knowing about potential pitfalls before they happen is a great way to ensure that you're prepared. Otherwise, these are things that would make anyone second guess why they started down the path to being an entrepreneur in the first place. 

 

But you know this is your calling, and you have to keep going. That's why this episode, and this podcast actually, are going to be an asset to you and you're navigating the road ahead as you pursue the calling God has put on your heart.

Ep 3: Overcoming Fear to Get Unstuck

Ep 3: Overcoming Fear to Get Unstuck

August 12, 2020

Fear is probably the biggest emotion getting in the way of you taking action toward your dream of being an entrepreneur. You feel like you desperately want this life you envision for yourself, one where you’ve got more time and are home with your kids, yet you aren’t taking the actions you know you need to to make it happen. That’s fear. 

 

And If you aren’t equipped to recognize it and overcome it, then it can keep you stuck. Always wishing and never actually doing. 

 

In this episode, I’m going to share how fear came into play as I was leaving my job to be an entrepreneur and tips for how you can identify and overcome your own fears to get unstuck. 

Episode Highlights: 

  • How fear showed up for me as I started my entrepreneurial journey
  • Fear will control us if we let it
  • Stepping out in faith even in the face of fear
  • Why I’m passionate about helping you overcome fears and obstacles
  • How to overcome fear (exercise)
  • Fear will keep you stuck if you don’t overcome it

I hope my story encourages you to keep making steps toward your calling.
