When this happens. As a mom, running a household and a business, there are a few ways we can react.

The first way is, we can lose it and just flip out. Letting it control our entire day. Letting our day run us and be ruined by an uncontrollable situation!

The better and sometimes harder thing to do, is to say OK…this is what has happened, now how do we solve it? And then get yourself into problem solving mode!

016 How to Automate Your Small Business as a Mom

In this conversation with Sarah Crosley we talk about her journey from starting an etsy business to using automation, tools and passive income to scale her business while homeschooling and raising her family.

I got my start in a similar place as Sarah, creating Etsy shops, figuring out how many keychains I’d have to sell to make a viable income. I quickly realized just like Sarah, that with the price point of my shop, it just wasn’t feasible. In this case, don’t give up, just pivot! All the steps along the way matter in leading up to your next best thing!

How to Make Instagram Story Highlight Cover Photos

When it comes to social media, hands down, my most favorite place to hang out is on Instagram, specifically on Instagram Stories! Have you used Instagram Stories?!!? Of course, always do your research to figure out where your ideal customer is hanging out on social media, but if it’s Instagram, get on Instagram Stories, now!!! 

Sharing 10-11 Instagram stories a day is powerful for two reasons.

  1. It allows you to find your authentic voice in the online space. If you feel nervous to share, on social media, then do my Instagram Story hack and share 10-12 stories a day for a week! See if you don’t come into your own true voice!
  2. It allows your audience to connect with you at a more personal level. When they connect, they’ll start caring more about what you’re sharing on your profile, on your blog, and most importantly, they’ll start caring more about what you’re selling!

If you are trying to create a personal brand and monetize that brand,...

014 How I’m Using Powersheets to Accomplish Meaningful Goals

We all want to know how to accomplish our big goals and make what we want happen in our lives! Often times we can fall into the trap that it is one thing, one big push of action, one magic strategy, that pushes us to reach that goal. But the reality is, it’s a lot of tiny steps in the right direction that bring us to our “ultimate” destination.

It’s not as glamorous and can often feel like no progress is being made, but I truly believe what Lara Casey says, that the Little by Little progress adds up!

In today’s episode, inspired by my Instagram Story series of Tuesday night, we are talking about that little by little progress. I’m sharing the behind the scenes of my January, the good, the bad, the ugly, the hard, the incredible, the blessings, the triumphs, the struggles, etc. If you want to see the exact goal planner I’m using, check out the links below to my favorites, or go here to hear the heart behind Lara Casey...

Meet Abbey

Hey there! I am Abbey. I started in business a decade ago when I opened my own photography studio, AK Studio & Design. I was just like so many others out there. I struggled to figure out how to run a profitable, effective business that made me happy and wasn’t a burden on my family.

Have you ever felt that way? Do you stay up long after everyone else has gone to bed? Do you entertain your kids with technology so you can sneak work in? I have been there and I know how that makes us feel as both business owners and parents and it isn’t good.

We all started these businesses to be a BENEFIT to our families, right? But it’s...

012 Hacks to Create Confident Kids

Each one of our kids has greatness inside of them and their own unique talents and abilities and callings. How can we as parents instill confidence in our kids?

If you have a small or big way in which you create confidence in your kids, I’d love to hear how you do that. DM me on Instagram and let me know. I will create a big montage of all of our $1k Moms and how we create confidence in our kids, big or small.

Take advantage of every little or big opportunity that you have to show your kids that they are PRETTY BIG DEALS. Help them step into that confidence.

It takes a lot more effort and time to build up confidence in our kids but it’s super easy to tear down their confidence. Be very aware of how our words, actions and environment is affecting their confidence.
