When life hits you - then knocks you down again, what do you do? How do you get up? Laura shares her story - the ups and downs - and inspires us to get up and keep going. Get motivated: transformation happens from the inside out.

She talks about what it's like running her business from home, and how to better prioritize the work/life/family balance. How do you go full force on your business, and not let everyone else get the leftovers? It's not easy, but Laura gives us some tips to help us keep moving forward.

  • Have a schedule - WHEN are you going to do WHAT for your business?  HOW LONG are you going to spend on it? What types of things are you going to focus on certain days of the week?
  • Consistency is KEY every day. That consistency will honor your family. Involve your family - let them know your business schedule and business hours.
  • Know how to DROP what you're doing when your kids need you.

As business owners, we never feel like we've done enough.... there's always other things we feel like we need to do. Laura encourages us to keep a checklist: track everything you do! Then you can look back and see that you still pushed forward that day, and still honored your family with your time. Some days you'll go 10x on your business, and other days when life gets crazy, you may only accomplish the minimum on your checklist.

Laura reminds us to cut the fluff: what kinds of things can you say no to?  Step away from people who are drama. When you say "yes" to those things, you are saying "no" to the important things - like family, your marriage, kids, personal development, etc.

When you’re not working, you’ve got to turn the work off.
