How Would You Rate Your Wellbeing?

Lighthouse’s mentor program has always highlighted a holistic approach to wellbeing. That starts with self-reflection. And, it often means nudging participants to uncover what they want to achieve or what needs to shift in their lives. But, no matter what stage these women are at in their lives – it all comes back to their wellbeing. So, how would you rate your wellbeing? What is Wellbeing?

10 Tips for Mom Entrepreneurs

Just like that, September rolls in and the fall routine is here.  And, let’s start by saying that these 10 tips for Mom Entrepreneurs (and really, any high functioning woman) are not ‘one size fits all’ solutions.  But, they may help break through the overwhelm of managing the competing priorities. The trendy moniker ‘mompreneur’ came into vogue a few years back to describe women that blend business ownership and parenthood with the hope of greater flexibility to juggle their priorities.

Life goes on and as we adjust to a new way of being, you can use these 4 steps to reset your 2020 goals. Of course, it’s been an intense year so far but we are now over halfway through.  Remember back to January when we were all making plans for 2020?  In fact, the year started with clever and hopeful idioms that 2020 would be a time of perfect vision. 20/20 vision – get it?

I worry about people getting sick.  Both those I know and those I don’t know. And, I worry that people still don’t get it.  That they aren’t doing what is necessary to keep themselves safe, to keep others safe and to get us on the other side of this pandemic.
