Our readers want to get to know you first, tell us about YOU what is your story.
I am a wife and mother (to a 3yo boy) and 2 pups. I have been in healthcare sales for over a decade, reached 6 figures before the age of 28, and now a vice president for a fortune 5 company. Outside of the current crisis, I travel about 70% of the time to client sites. Otherwise I work from home which allows me time to also run a side hustle (sales coaching for entrepreneurs). I also host a podcast called The Bold and Brave podcast. Here is a description of my podcast: Honest, entertaining, and of course Bold and Brave. Week after week, host Brett Jansen will deliver tips on how to level up your mindset, create a life full of abundance, financial freedom, confidence, community and collaboration. If you are thirsty for more in life and need a good kick in the a**, Bold and Brave is the podcast for you.
Now let’s talk business, what do you do? Have you always wanted to have your own business-what inspired you to go down this journey?
I didn’t decide to launch a side hustle until after I became a mom. I already work from home and my income has no limits in my current role. However, becoming a mom brought out the entrepreneurial spirit in me. During the last 10 years, I had gone through 3 different traditional corporate sales training courses and have developed my own methodology. Selling is such an icky word for most entrepreneurs, so I decided to coach others on how to love selling and presenting as much as I do!
What advice do you have for moms who want to start a business?
Life is full of lessons, what has motherhood taught you?
Time management. the 2 min rule = if a task is going to take me less than two minutes, even if it’s something I absolutely detest like an expense report, just do it. Make a list of to do’s every morning and prioritize. If you don’t cover something at the end of the day, shift it over to the following days to do list and put it at the top to complete first.
Enjoy the moments. Since I travel so much, I am so much more present when I am home. Every moment is precious because I don’t get them as much as most moms do. I wouldn’t change a thing though about our life. My husband travels a lot too so right now we are enjoying being stuck in the house working together.
