FEARLESS plus a tribal invite to the Holy Mother-preneur Meet & Greet

FEARLESS-5.jpg

I’ve been super emotional and on the verge of a panic attach the past 8 days! Why? Because I just purchased FIVE HUNDRED cookbooks!!!!! I’m doing it y’all! It wasn’t an easy purchase as this is a very big debt to take on as a startup business. I have so many folks that believe in me and this brand so I’m choosing to be FEARLESS!! I’ve prayed over it and I have many folks in my corner praying for me too! I’m so grateful to anyone that has said a little prayer for me. They give me peace and excitement for what is to come!

Recently I started up a Facebook group for ALL Holy Mother-preneur’s to join! Here is the link. We currently have another contest going on featuring our HMP of the Week, the executive director of Beautycounter, Ashley Flores! The giveaway is valued at over $110.00!!! You can enter over on the FB Group or on Instagram too!

Earlier this year, I had this yearning to start a TRIBE! However, I was still very depressed after having Rocco (our third baby). Postpartum depression just took over my entire life but God was still there working away at me and preparing me for this new venture!! That’s when Holy Mother-preneur came to life!!

And let me tell you, this isn’t just “ANOTHER” group!

HMP Tribe.jpg

Why in the world did I start this group?! Well, first off, let’s call us a TRIBE instead! I needed it! After speaking with other ladies, I found that they needed this too! We need our TRIBE!! Have you ever heard the saying the people you spend the most time with are who you become?! IT’S SO TRUE!! 

I want to be successful! I want that for my tribe too!! Let’s do this together! 

Our first “tribal” meeting will be held on Friday, October 12th from 7:30am - 9:00am. I picked this time because it’s right after school drop off and I thought “What better way to head into the weekend with a bunch of new friends and new ideas to lead us all into a new week! There will be coffee and quiches. The topic will be  - ALL over the place! Let’s just get to know one another! I would love to hear what you want to learn more about so I can start planning our next tribal meeting. Children are welcome! I will set up a play area for them at our office. For future meetings I would like to keep them child free if possible so we can all focus. lol

RSVP here! I would love to meet you and hear more about you!

With the holiday selling season just around the corner, on Friday, November 2nd at 7:30am, I will be teaching a class on photographing products for your business for social media and we will discuss hashtag usage too! I’ve already opened up seats for this class so be sure to RSVP here!

I am so pumped and I hope you are too! See y’all soon!

Holy Mother-preneur of the Week | Ashley Flores

Ashley-10.jpg

Ashley and I have known each other in passing and through following along on social media but today, we just hit it off! She’s so down to earth and just LOVES helping out other mother-preneurs!! My kinda girl!!

Her and I sat down and talked for several hours about mom life, being entrepreneurs and health nuts!

Ashley is the Executive Director at Beautycounter, an amazing stay-at-home momma to two babes (Olive who is five and Teo who just turned two), and a huge advocate for living a holistic lifestyle! She started with Beautycounter when they were just two years in and moved up the ladder very quickly!!

Just to give you a little background info. . .she started with the company when her daughter was just two years old. Her husband had just taken over a church, became the pastor and then they moved the church to a different town! Within that three month time frame, Ashely moved up to a leadership role over at Beautycounter. Isn’t it so incredible what we are capable of when we have a passion and mindset for something we believe in?! Oh, I LOVE IT!!!

Ashley-14.jpg

Now go get to know her better. You’ll fall in love with her too!!

HMP: What drew you in to working with Beautycounter?
Ashley: It just aligned with my beliefs and thoughts on raising my daughter in a natural environment. I believe in their mission and want to help empower other women to live a more natural way of life too. What really drew me to link arms with the company was the advocacy. Our laws in the US are so outdated. So many companies aren’t putting great ingredients into their products. Beautycounter has lobbyists going to DC to make our voices heard and advocate for safer ingredients. Over 1,300 ingredients have been banned in Europe and other countries. Currently, thanks to Beautycounter, the US is now up to 30 banned ingredients. Beautycounter bans 1,500 ingredients from their products!! If it’s in question they just search for safer ingredients because it’s just not worth the risk.

HMP: Where do you find your support system?
Ashley: My husband has been supportive since day one! He knew I was passionate about this company. Also, I couldn’t do all this without my family and close friends. When I need someone to help me with Tao, my family is right there for me! 
HMP: What are you thoughts on family and friends being more supportive:
Ashley: I need people in my life that add value and I can do the same for them. When Rhianna comes out with a new album, everyone knows about it! Be the same for your friends and family! People are so influenced by celebrities but when it comes to your family, we need that too! Support your friends and inquire about what they are doing!
HMP: It can be really overwhelming starting up a new business venture and I know so many people will come up with excuse after excuse. Any advice?
Ashley: You just have to ask yourself, are you too busy or is this just not a priority?! You just jump in and figure it out!!

HMP: What do you love to do in your time off?
Ashley: I’m a health nut! I LOVE cooking in the kitchen and swimming with my children. We love going to the lake with our family. I love heater shows. Date nights with my husband are important too!
HMP: What do you love about being a mother-prenuer?
Ashley: As a stay at home mom I just wanted something more and I wanted to tap into my entrepreneurial spirit. I want my daughter to see that I can do something important and care for my family tool.

HMP: What are three fun facts about you:
1. I love organizing anything and everything! If you need something in your house purged out (I love throwing things away haha!) I’m your girl. I hate clutter and want everything to have a place... it’s a little neurotic.
2. We want tons of kids! Our house stays chaotic with only two, but we welcome it. The more the merrier! 
3. I’m a musical theater fanatic! I did Theater growing up, and just feel like still as an adult it’s so incredibly magical. I could listen to showtunes all day every day. I’m so happy Olive has started at such a young age!

Something new. . .and a FREEBIE too!!!

holy_mother_preneur_bts_0033.jpg

I haven't shared this enough around here but I've been working on something fun and NEW for you guys!! Earlier this year God made it very clear to me that I needed to start writing a book about my postpartum depression journey. I immediately started writing it all out! Then I started getting this excitement for something but I just couldn't figure out how to place it! I prayed that God would channel that positive energy and let me know what I needed to be doing with it. That's when the cookbook came to life!

Not only has a cookbook come to life but also a new brand! Holy Mother-preneur!!! This lifestyle brand is uplifting, positive and available to lend a helping hand to my fellow mother-preneurs!!

This cookbook is for the mother-preneur (dog mom's included!!!) that wants to eat healthy yet doesn't have a ton of time to put into a recipe!! These are quick and easy meals that my family loves and I can't wait to share it with you and your fam!

Holy Mother-preneur, THE COOKBOOK, Seven Nights of No Thinking, Just Healthy Eating AND a coordinating grocery list (to make it EVEN easier for you!) is available as a FREE download by using this link.
Sign up for the newsletter and I will send your FREEBIE

I started this lifestyle brand in hopes of making your life a little easier with healthy recipes, tips and tricks with business/life hacks too!! Am I still a photographer??? HECK YES I am!! I have lots on the schedule coming this fall!

This cookbook really just combines all of my fave things: photography, writing, cooking healthy and helping others! It was the perfect outlet to channel my creativity and bless others with healthy simplicity!!

I've been so nervous to share this with you guys and I feel quite vulnerable. . .I guess because it's something new! I hope y'all love your FREE Seven Nights of No Thinking, Just Healthy Eating cookbook!
