3 Realistic Goals for Mompreneurs

Don’t discredit yourself just because you’re a mom entrepreneur - you CAN run your business, take care of your kids, fill your own cup, and still have that intimate time between you and your hubby, you don’t need to choose. You can set and achieve those goals. 

Your first step is blocking out “the haters” or rather, those who don’t 100% believe that you can do it and support you. Next, you’re going to pick out what’s most important to you and your lifestyle. Do you want to travel? Do you want to have weekly date nights? Do you want to homeschool your kids? All of these things are goals that you really can accomplish as a mompreneur. 

I get it though, when you’re feeling down in your business or mindset it’s hard to look towards the future and say “yea, I CAN do that” so here are three realistic goals for mompreneurs for you to borrow:

Goal #1: I will have a balanced work, mom, and me life.

Balance is refreshing, amazing, and opens up more room for passion in all aspects of your life. Having a balanced work, mom, and me life leads to more creative solutions in your business and a better attitude when interacting with others at home. A balanced life is something that a lot of moms struggle with that is actually easier than they think.

With this one, overwhelm can quickly cause you to lose sight and assume that this “method” or “goal” isn’t for you when it IS for you. You deserve balance and you can accomplish balance.

Goal #2: I will earn enough without working too much.

Running your own business or even just working at home can cause you to overwork - the line between when you need to “clock out” and how much stuff you have to get done crosses easily, leading to an overworked (and often underpaid) mama. How do we fix this? Boundaries. And using a little math to calculate how much you should get paid for what you do.

You’ll need to record how many hours it takes to accomplish your task/create your product, how many hours you can to work (think realistically), and what your ideal income would be. Then divvy up how much you should get paid for each hour based on your ideal income. Don’t be scared, you’re MORE than worth it.

Goal #3: I will take breaks from my business without feeling guilty.

The best way to do this is ditch the mom guilt and set up systems, digital products, and team members to complete the work while you’re gone. Having a good team behind you with effective systems in place to see your digital products (or regular products) while you’re off in Cancun - trust me, you’ll love it - takes away one stressor, income. 

Other stressors need to be identified and conquered, which is one of the things I cover when we work 1:1 or in a group setting. I want you to be just as confident and comfortable in your business as I am! DM on Instagram to get started today.

The Modern Social Mamas Guide to Increasing Engagement in Social Media Posts to generate more income

Let’s talk growing your social media and leveraging the weekly curated post examples I created specifically for Momtrepeneurs who are growing a thriving business using social media. I built my first business,  using only social media and took my following from 0 to 68,000 followers in six months. It was a lot of work, and it left me feeling overwhelmed and burn out, when it was all said and done. Since then, I’ve spent time working with business owners who message me daily on how to replicate the success in their following like I  have built for myself.

One of the main questions I always get for everyone from everyone is how to get better engagement in their social posts? They don’t get good engagement and bad engagement = less following, less leads, less conversations and less sales. In the Modern Social Mama course that I created, I give you ideas that you can pull from. You create your own post customizing for your audience to boost your engagement. It makes posting so simple. And I teach you lots of tips and tricks how to speak to your ideal clan on social media build relationships, and convert a conversation to an actual sale! 

An engagement post is a post that gets your audience to engage with you. That’s exactly the point of it. Don’t overthink it. You want your audience to see the post, and immediately leave you a comment or send you a message. In today’s world everyone has an opinion, and for your engagement post we’re gonna take darn advantage of it and let them give you their opinion! So let’s give some examples and engagement posts: do you like chocolate or vanilla better? Do you like snow or beach better? What time do your kids go to bed? Are you an early bird or a night owl?

These are post that you want to use a really great graphic with to grab attention and also have the wording written on the graphic. Then, click post and wait for your responses to roll in. This is cool because your audience wants a way to connect with you, and they get to leave you their opinion. It also allows you to get to know them more, i.e. build relationships which is exactly what we’re doing on social media. I go into this a lot further in my Modern Social Mama course, but anybody who’s on social media should be building relationships. After you do the engagement post the algorithm on Facebook will think holy cow look at all the people she’s been engaging with this post was hot so the next time you post it’s going to show your next post to so many people so from the strategic perspective it’s really great to do an engagement post and then the very next post you do the next day or later on even in the same day after your engagement post do a product or service post. This way people can know about your product or service that you’re offering a lot more people will see it because again the algorithm knows that your previous post was hot you had so many people comment and like on it and give you their opinion which allowed you to learn more about them about them to give their opinion so they feel heard and intern you’re rewarded by the platform in showing more people your next post. Which should be a product or your service post. That’s a hack not very many people will tell you about, and that’s just one of the million hacks and tips I give you in my Modern Social Mama course. 

An engagement post I recommend is included weekly in your weekly content posting schedule and I break this all down for you.

So when you’re a curating your weekly schedule for posting, or should I actually recommend you do a month at a time, if you’re in my Modern Social Mama Course, which you should be if you’re trying to build a business on social media and you want to reach your ideal clients and customers so you can live your dream life and use social media to cash those checks- then it’s for you!

Social media is a great while you to build relationships, and therefore your business. Because I’m a firm believer in whatever business you’re in you need to build relationships for it. This is why when brands and influencers build a community and an audience no matter what they’re selling their community buys it and that’s exactly friends what I teach you in the Modern Social Mama.
