{Joyous Holidays} Shape Your Legacy

by Africa
Over Thanksgiving, my step-brother said we were immortal. We’re not kids anymore, so I wasn’t really sure where he was headed with this notion. I know there was a time I thought I would live forever and could leap tall buildings in a single bound, but that isn’t today. Honestly, that hasn’t been for quite some time. I guess the hush in the room was finally too much, and he explained that we are immortal because of our children. There was a bit of nervous laughter, and then we all told stories about how awesome our kids are! After the […]

Should You Be A Stay At Home Mom?

by Africa

I’ve been talking with my friend, Sue.  She is about to have a baby!  You would think I was having the baby because I am soooo excited!

Sue is trying to figure out if she should be a stay at home mom or not.  You would not believe the myriad of things floating through her mind as she was trying to make her decision: lifestyle, perception, expenses, full-time, soccer moms, part-time, car payments, daycare, boredom, and so much more.  She was in a mental whirlwind.  In the video, you’ll get the rest of the skinny on her situation, and the three steps I went through with her to make a decision.

Get Happy Momma!

by Africa
When I did my interview a month ago with Tee Ming, she was really excited about my proclamation to get happy.  Being a mom in a state of overwhelm is simply not healthy for the momma, the family, or the world.  I know we (all of us mommas) can make the world a better place.  Let’s start by always coming from a place of love.  Let’s move from overwhelmed to overjoyed! What was your big takeaway from the interview?  What do you want to know more about?  I want to read all about it in the comments below.  Just a few […]

Stay Healthy Momma! Breast Cancer Awareness & More

by Africa
It’s breast cancer awareness month, and I realized it did not know what were the pressing women’s health issues.  So I did a bit of research and I have a few things to report to you!  Unlike my normal research delivery style, I decided to keep this as juicy as possible.  If you want to check out some of the sites I reviewed for my report, I have links below the video. My major takeaway from the research was how much we can do to keep ourselves healthy.  Of course, we know inherently what to do, it is the doing […]

Peaceful Awesome Life + Business Mommas Want

by Africa
Now for something completely different . . . no video. Don’t freak out!  I know it’s kinda weird.  Perhaps a little scary. I thought a change of pace was in order.  In just a few short days, I will celebrate my one year anniversary with my husband.  If you’ve read my about me, you know it was a rollercoaster ride to the altar.  No, not a Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Rollercoaster of Love and not on one of those awesome ones at the amusement park.  It was an emotional rollercoaster. At times business felt that way too – a crazy […]
