It shouldn’t cost you your sanity, your health, and your time freedom to make GOOD money
Life Coach for Working Moms

You’ve worked hard to create the life you have because you wanted freedom for yourself and your family
You wanted to travel to places, buy nice things, and have fun experiences
But if you’re always plugged in… what does it matter?
You are watching a movie with your kids and you get a text from your boss... and feel compelled to open it, no matter what time it is (or the fact that it’s actually Sunday)
You feel like you’re constantly plugged in to work and you can't really relax... and you feel guilty because you're not really present with your family
Even when you go on vacations, it takes you a full week to unplug your mind from work
You also feel inadequate because you feel like you're never done with work, even though you're putting in 12 hour days... there’s always more to do!
And even at the end of those long days, you still can’t relax and feel satisfied with the amount of work you got done
This I know: You want to ENJOY the fruits of your labor without the stress of being constantly available, or the guilt of having very limited time to be present with your family because of work
You want to enjoy the things that truly matter in life
Some will say “Well, that’s the cost of having a good-paying job” or “This is how you get to have flexible hours”
I know how defeated I felt when I was in that situation
I remember feeling like I was trapped in a golden cage: I had a very good job, nice income, but I wasn’t free to enjoy all it as I wanted
I knew that a different way had to be possible, and I wanted to have it all: the freedom, the calm, the happiness, the amazing job, the good money, everything!
I realized that “Well, that’s the cost of having a good-paying job” wasn’t true, it was just a THOUGHT ERROR that I had believed
But once you start challenging it, you start seeing all the examples that contradict it:
You know people who make a lot of money and do what they want with their time, right? Even if you don’t personally, you know of them, so you know it’s possible
You also know that working your b*tt off doesn’t guarantee you’ll make all the money you want
Could it be possible to make even more money, working less?
When you challenge the "reason" (belief) of why you’re in that position, all sorts of possibilities start to open up…
They were always there in front of you… but you couldn’t see them, because your belief was blocking them from your sight, like:
- Hiring help so you can focus on the higher value activities so you make more even with paying for it
- Focusing on your zone of genius will yield more money in the same or less time
- Training yourself to be more focused and productive will let you make the same money you make now, in less time
These are just a few examples, but imagine how your life could look like if you challenge what you believe is true about YOUR situation
That’s how I got to make the same money as in my last corporate job, working half the hours, so I have time to do school drop-offs and pick-ups, be with the family, spend time on my own growth, take time off whenever I want, and ENJOY the life I’ve created
If you would like to have that kind of freedom, and you know that it’s possible, but you just don’t know HOW yet, seek the help of someone that inspires trust in you
If this post resonates with you, and you are wanting support from someone who understands what you’re experiencing and will guide you to find your own way to create a life that’s more aligned with your values of freedom, abundance, love, and possibility, that’s exactly what you will find in working with me
If you’re curious about what it would look like, I invite you to a free consult call where you tell me what you want and what’s getting in your way, and I will help you map out the strategy to get it, and if it makes sense for us to work together for a longer time, I’ll tell you how to grab a 1:1 coaching spot in my 6-month program. Reply to this message and I'll give you more deets.
(If you don't feel compelled to work with me, that's ok too, just make sure you find someone you click with)

Bullying by the means of the “silent treatment “
Last year I taught history for a teacher on maternity leave at a private school. From the beginning, I was undermined in front of students and parents. It was a mob of teachers and staff involved. Here are a few things that occurred:
An internal phone call with heavy breathing ( I traced the call from the front desk)
Yelling and screaming at me in front of students.
Told that I was inadequate, although students, parents and board members said otherwise.
And to circle back to the heading,; the silent treatment. I got cold stares all the time. When my contract was up, the Assistant Head did not even say thank you or even a “ goodbye “, even after I sent an email thanking everyone for the opportunity and well wishes. That said, I got a ton of cards from parents and students thanking me for my help. And few board members commenting that I am a great teacher.
All and all, I am confused and very hurt.

leadership expects me to assist with big decisions but doesn't invite me to important meetings and retreats
I'm in a role that involves strategy and sometimes advising our executives. Our leadership team is all male, and I'm female. They seem to see me as important to the team and value my contributions. However, I'm not invited to participate in meetings where they often make major decisions. I'm usually briefed afterward but not given much context or guidance. As a result, I'm left out of the loop and not operating with the whole story. A few weeks ago, I was given instructions to carry out a project and unfortunately, it failed because I was missing critical information that came out of these meetings. My supervisor described what happened and based on what he said, it sounds like I was thrown under the bus by the very people I trusted to tell me the whole story and assist me with the project. Had I been invited to the previous meetings, I would have taken a different direction.
Moving forward, I'd like to be invited to these meetings and kept in the loop. They expect big decisions from me but don't want me at the decisionmakers' table. Is there a way to improve this situation if they still insist I don't need to attend their meetings? I'm starting to think things will get worse if I don't and I'll just become the one to blame everytime the guys mess up.

I have been in my position for three years as a temp.
Last year I was told that I would be given a perm. Work, but it would just take time. They explained that because there had never been an LPN in this agency, I was assured that would not be a problem. I was told yesterday that it didn't look good when giving me a perm position. I feel used! I do everything the RN does. what can do besides look for another job!?

Monday, my computer access was shut off.
I knew what was happening but still had to wait to be “formally” told my company was restructuring again and I was going to be laid off. I had just gotten hired after being laid off from a 6 year positon at another company.
To make matters worse, I’m in the middle of a fertility cycle, playing catch up on bills from my husband and daughter’s surgery, my dad’s passing and my miscarriage.
I hit the ground running, revamped my resume, and started applying to every HR job where I met at least 50% of the qualifications. So far, nothing but rejections that I don’t meet all the qualifications. I know it’s a touchy market but due to health issues working on site full time isn’t something I can do nor can I relocate as we purchased a home two years ago and my husband works at a local company.
I’ve reached out to my network on LinkedIn but it seems they’ve gone radio silent.
I’m also trying to pivot into a data role within HR.
My husband’s manager got me a referral at a bank but due to an incident where I was retaliated against when I made an HR compliant, I’m deemed ineligible for rehire.
Any advice, suggestions, or companies I should take a closer look at?

I need some advice or guidance. I currently got my registration and completion of training certificates for a pharmacy technician. I am on the second pathway. Meaning I would 500 hours of work experience in order to take the exam to become certified. I applied to many jobs but I don't seem to meet the requirements. So, I'm not sure what to do. If anyone or any current pharmacy technician could give me some advice that would be gladly appreciated. Thank you.

Yesterday my employer informed me that my position is being moved to another state.
Since i said no to the relocation, i was told i have 3-4months to remain on board during the transition phase. They didnt offer details of my last date, severance package or anything else. I feel like im in limbo. They did confirm our office in nj will remain open yet im the only one losing her job. I plan on talking to an employment lawyer but was curious to get feedback from the fairygodboss community first. Thank you
