Back in Episode 13, I shared with you that I’m a bit of a stalker. Jill Coleman is someone I’ve been stalking for a couple years now. Her story about the evolution of her relationship with food is something I relate to 100%.
As I’ve taken a gentler approach with food in recent years, I have been so inspired by everything Jill has to say. In fact, I’ve adopted many of her philosophies (especially when it comes to WINE – can I get an AMEN?!?)
If you struggle with food at all, you will learn a ton today!
Today Jill shares with us:

Before I start this episode on the topic of why you should not hustle I have to say thank you. Thank you to all of you who listen to this podcast, comment, share your stories or leave reviews! I woke up this morning and saw on iTunes that The Shameless Mom Academy is ranking in 3 categories for new and noteworthy! So thank you so much for your feedback!
Why you shouldn’t you hustle? I have five reasons why you shouldn’t! The hustle can have such an effect on your body not just physically but mentally as well. Your body needs rest and a chance to recharge so you don’t lose your mojo or passion.

I got a lot of feedback from episode 3 when we talked about “having bad days with food”. There is no such thing! What you eat does not define who you are or what kind of person you are. If you haven’t listened to episode 3 you should pop on over and listen. To kind of tie in with episode 3 we are going to talk about sugar and cravings. I am going to give you some tips and tools to fight back against those sugar cravings! A lot of people believe that they eat lots of sugar because they have no willpower. This is wrong! It is not about willpower. If you have had sugar recently or eat it frequently then you will crave that sugar. So let’s talk about some less challenging ways to get rid of those sugar cravings.

Every mom remembers what it was like to be a teenager right? And we all remember that predictability and teenagers is nonexistent. Imagine starting out motherhood with teenagers! Jen Briggs, a dear friend of mine who is a business and life coach has done just that! As you can imagine it’s probably not easy to maneuver into a family that was once three and is now four. Step mothers also get a bad rap in our society. Which by the way not all step mothers are evil. With her new marriage, kids, new business and recent move she is going to tell us how she makes it all work.
Jenn shares with us:
I am an amazing stalker and I totally own that! I’m not a creeper, because there is a difference! I try to use my stalking powers for good and that’s what we are talking about today. My stalking comes out of my desire to connect with certain people and figuring out how to create those connection opportunities! This is going to be fun, so join us!
There are lots of really great reasons to engage your stalking skills:
I had the desire to do this at one point in my life when I joined a mastermind. I went to my first meeting without a website or any sort of online business. Even though it was scary, I was surrounded by people that were very successful in online business. This helped me more than anything I could have done alone in my business.
Ask yourself: What can I learn about them so that I can start learning from them?
How do you start stalking?
Lead with a compliment.
Find common ground upon which to build a relationship.
If you have nothing else to offer to them, be their supporter, their cheerleader.
Make sure they know you are deliberate in wanting to have a relationship.
I was able to use these tips to connect with someone this past week that I look up to! I was able to make contact with Lewis Howes at an event.. I was very intentional about trying to connect with him, and I happened to connect 3 different times, so hopefully this will lead to more connections at some of his events in the future. At the same event, I was able to meet several other people that I admire, and I will be having them on the podcast. Even though they were out of my league, I still put myself out there and made the connection.
One of them was Jill Coleman - My guru for having a healthy relationship with food - check her out at www.jillcoleman.com
This isn’t super comfortable for me, but I approached my stalking at this event with no shame in my game, and it paid off! Don’t be afraid to be a stalker!

I’m sure all moms can agree that life turns fast pace when you become a mom. It’s hard to slow down when you are trying to keep up with your kids, your house, being a wife, just everyday life. Sometimes you have to slow it down a bit. Learn how to balance everything in life but especially time with family.
Maria Ross, our guest on the show today is going to share with us some tidbits that she uses to balance between life and business. Maria is a brand strategist, author, actress, owner of Red Slice and speaker. She has received several praises for her book: “Branding Basics for Small Business”.

She suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and this book is a memoir on her amazing recovery. Maria is an inspiration and this episode is definitely worth the listen!

Let’s face it, fitting exercise into our busy mommy lives can be a struggle sometimes. Today we are going to be talking about ways to make exercise part of your morning routine. The reason I say “part” of your morning routine is because when you have kids you just don’t know how your day is going to go! Obviously things happen, like your kid has a fever all night, so your workout is probably not going to happen first thing in the morning. But exercising can really help with certain struggles we may have with our kids and ourselves.
