If you’re a mom who’s trying to grow a coaching business and raise your kids at the same time, you’re going to love listening to the recent conversation I had with Dr. Ariana Witkin.

Ariana is a board certified pediatrician in Boston who has been building and growing a wonderful coaching business as a Postpartum Coach and Motherhood Mentor.

In this conversation, we get into so many things that are important for mothers who are growing their businesses, because Ariana is a mother herself (in fact her daughter was only 13 months old when Ariana started building her business), and we talk about exactly how to juggle raising a family AND raising a business.

Because it’s not always easy!

But it is absolutely something you can do.

Here’s where you can listen in:

How To Grow Your Business & Raise Your Kids At The Same Time

Here are some of the things we talk about in this episode…

  • Ariana’s story of how she began building her coaching business when her daughter was only 13 months old
  • the importance of having a growth mindset when it comes to being a mom and an entrepreneur
  • specific tools and strategies around how to embrace this season and free up some headspace
  • Ariana’s tips for the practical, tactical things a mom can do to set herself up for success as she’s trying to pursue her own dreams AND raise a family at the same time

…and so much more!

If you’re a mother (or you have plans to become a mother at some point), and you’re building a business and wondering how those two things can coexist, you’re going to love this conversation.

After you listen, I’d love to hear from you on this!
