From Postpartum To Productivity

All Episodes

Well my friends I am back with a fantastic new episode for you today. I have taken a few months off from uploading brand new shows, but I simply could not pass up the opportunity (even during a pandemic) of sharing the incredible conversation I had with Abby and Vanessa AKA the Real Moms of Bravo. Tune in today to hear us talk about motherhood, our labor stories, newborn classes, breastfeeding as well as some of our experiences with post-partum depression. Abby and Vanessa share with us how they met and the story behind Real Moms of Bravo. Why they even launched their Instagram and Podcast in the first place. And of course, we are talking all things Bravo! Our favorite shows, moms, Bravolebrities and where we think the direction of future Bravo shows are going… This is an episode you are not going to want to miss! After listening to today’s show, I would love to hear your feedback. Simply leave me a review on Apple Podcasts letting me know what part of this episode really hit home for you!

Today is my last episode of 2019. I cannot believe it! In today’s show I am sharing “my word” for 2020. I’m also getting into the toy purges I have been doing along side the breathing throughout this crazy busy holiday season. You get it? Right? Purge all those toys… I’m also sharing why I’ve decided to take a break from podcasting in 2020 and work more with the ever-growing Monat business I am running that now offers profit sharing. Also, the important work I am doing as I continue to build future marketing leaders while working as a Professor at OU. I hope to always continue these conversations with you as the podcast will still be up and running, I just won’t be appearing here weekly. Just a little sprinkle of an episode every now and again.

I know it is hard, but you must just go with it. It all works out in the end! I promise you that as everything is happening for you and not to you. Today I am sharing my own personal stories from my corporate job I had with The Limited to my current as a marketing professor and my own Monat business and how they both came into play and how I am continuously inspired.

In today’s episode I am repurposing a Facebook Live I did earlier this week. As you know we’ve been talking all about raising business and babies over here. So today I want to chat about how we should not be relatable! Yes! You read that correctly! Don’t be relatable when it comes to selling online. Stand out amongst the crowd. Share who you are, why you do what you do, and the sales will follow. I want you to think about what kind of entrepreneur you are and stand out amongst the rest of the women doing what you do. Tune in today to learn a few more ways for you to show up online and sell with more ease. Let’s continue this conversation. What is one of your specific techniques you use when it comes to selling?

In today’s very special episode we are celebrating! Celebrating the fact that one day I had this idea that I needed to share my postpartum journey and the experiences involved as a podcast for the world to hear. Share it so I could help other moms out there up in the middle of the night searching for something to put their mind and body at ease. Information that I wish I could have for myself. This content was nowhere to be found so I created this podcast and started sharing what I knew best. Real stories. In life there are pivots and that is something you will be seeing on this show. We have gone from postpartum depression to my mom’s health journey, beauty and personal development to marketing and business tips, time saving, money and life hacks and even shared several episodes with some very special guests. And you can expect to see that and more in this next chapter of the show! I’ll be going back to school soon. Helping pave the way for future marketing leaders and my mindset and teaching experience may play the part in a few different episodes which I am excited to be sharing with you this Fall so stay tuned, share with a friend and I will be back soon with a brand new show! Do you have a episode suggestion or guest idea for the next chapter of the Own Your Pretty Now Podcast? Tag me on FB and IG @ownyourprettynow and let me know!

In this week’s episode I wanted to touch on the Advocare situation that happened earlier this week. As someone who is in the network marketing industry, I felt it was important to share my thoughts. If you are not aware of what has happened with the company Advocare, they changed their business model and let everyone know who was selling for them on Monday! Along with the rest of the world. Any individual who was selling Advocare products will only be getting paid on their personal sales going forward. Before the big switch those individuals were getting paid on their personal sales plus the sales of their team that they’ve put together. This my friend is why you always need a Plan B. Always have something else going on if you are in the network marketing game. Are you in a network marketing company? What are your thoughts on this?

In this episode I'm sharing the conversation I had with Kelly Ann Gorman (The Happy Workaholic), my Podcast Producer who I have been working with for about a year now. Kelly had a very untraditional reason of starting her show, The Happy Workaholic Podcast. She launched because of health reasons, and quite quickly! She also believes very strongly that there are no rules when it comes to podcasting. You can choose how creative and structured to be, as it is your show! You should just do what makes you happy. Tune in to learn her journey of becoming a podcaster, coach and producer and how she was misdiagnosed with an autoimmune disease, which was the reasoning of this new career for her. Kelly is also sharing many reasons why you should just start when you have an idea as well as how this audio platform is a rapidly growing medium for business owners, marketers and sales professionals as well as story tellers and other individuals with very important messages to share. We’re also getting into the monetization of podcasting, why you need a media kit and again, why you should do it scared. We can’t wait to hear your feedback on this show! Have a question about this episode or podcasting? We would love to hear from you!

In today’s episode I am talking about needing this newer version of myself. The one that is taking the time and making “slowing down” a reality. Overwhelm and depression are not my thing, so these days I am learning how to chase slow. You may remember my friend Ali from Episode 17. Recently she has been sharing pieces of a book called Chasing Slow with me. Let me tell you these excerpts are really hitting home. As you know, I have been on maternity leave so there is not much time for me to read so I really appreciate these pieces I have seen thus far and cannot wait to dive into the book in its entirety. Have you recently tried to slow down? Have you read Chasing Slow, the book mentioned in the show? Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow so we can continue this conversation.

In today’s episode I am sharing a very special conversation I had with my friend SaraMae Founds about her pregnancy, son, and Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR). IUGR refers to a condition in which an unborn baby is smaller than it should be because it is not growing at a normal rate inside the womb. Delayed growth puts the baby at risk of certain health problems during pregnancy, delivery, and after birth. SaraMae shares her story from beginning to end. Her doctor appointments, hospital stays, testing procedures, final diagnosing process and how her and Jackson are living now. Have you ever gone through IUGR or something similar? As SaraMae says being an Advocate is so important. Tag me on Facebook and Instagram @ownyourprettynow so we can continue this conversation. I would love to hear your story.
