Moms Need To Give Themselves Permission: The #1 Mindset I Needed To  Let Go

Hey amazing moms and entrepreneurs!

Today, I want to chat about something that profoundly changed my perspective, both as a mom and as a business owner: giving ourselves permission to outsource and not do everything ourselves.

The Early Days:

Back in my early entrepreneurial days, before I became a mom, I received advice that now shapes my approach to business and motherhood. A wise woman gave me the simplest yet most powerful advice: she gave me permission to outsource, to not do it all by myself.

The Generational Belief:

Growing up, I saw my mom do everything. She was incredible, a true superhero. But watching her juggle it all made me believe that, as a mom and a business owner, I had to follow in her footsteps. That was a misconception I had to unlearn. The truth is, we can’t do everything. We can’t be supermoms, successful entrepreneurs, and maintain our sanity without a little help.

The Lie We Tell Ourselves:

There’s this lie that we, as moms, often believe – that we must handle every aspect of our lives and businesses single-handedly. It’s not just unrealistic; it’s unsustainable. Being a great mom and a thriving business owner means recognizing when to step back and delegate.

A Moment of Realization:

I remember attending my first conference, where I heard Staje speak. She empowered other women to outsource and let go of control. That moment was eye-opening. It was about more than just business efficiency; it was about giving ourselves the space to excel at what we’re truly good at.

The Power of Outsourcing:

Outsourcing isn’t just delegating tasks; it’s an act of self-care. It’s about understanding that by letting go of some responsibilities, we open up space to focus on our strengths, be present for our families, and grow our businesses more effectively.

A Message to My Fellow Moms:

I want to pass on this permission to you. Give yourself the grace to not do everything. Outsource when you can, and focus on being the amazing mom and entrepreneur you are meant to be. Remember, outsourcing doesn’t make you less of a mom or a business owner; it makes you a smarter, more balanced one.

Closing Thoughts:

As moms, we need to break free from the generational belief that doing it all is the only way. Let’s redefine what it means to be a successful mompreneur. Let’s embrace the power of outsourcing and give ourselves the permission to focus on what we love and do best.

Here’s to finding balance, growing our businesses, and being the best moms we can be, without the pressure of doing it all!
