Today, We’re Talking About Support for Mama Entrepreneurs.

Being an entrepreneur is difficult. Being a mother is extremely difficult. Being both means you deserve a medal.

Neither of these two things are easy to do on your own and having a supportive community behind you who know exactly what you’re going through can make all the difference in the world.

In This Episode:

My special guest this week is Katya Libin and she is the Co-Founder of Heymama; a global community for entrepreneurial mamas.

After attending college with the intent of becoming a lawyer, Katya quickly found herself being one of the top sales staff at an emerging tech company working with brands like Nike, Victoria’s Secret, and American Express to name a few.

After she unexpectedly found herself pregnant while all her friends were still partying it up in New York City, she realized she felt alone in her personal life and unfulfilled in her professional one.

After meeting her current business partner, and fellow mama, she discovered that a connection to other business-minded mama’s was what she had been missing.

[Tweet “Being an entrepreneur is difficult. Being a mother is extremely difficult. Being both means you deserve a medal.”]

Why You Can Expect:

In this episode, Katya explains her personal journey, how she founded Heymama with just $500 and an Instagram account, why she felt compelled to serve entrepreneurial mama’s, how Heymama helps these women by providing both free and paid content, and so much more.

Side note: Katya and I had such a great conversation that it ran quite a bit longer than usual so, I’ve split in the interview into two parts.

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast so you don’t miss part two when it’s released next week!

Want to Know the Raw Truth About Being an Entrepreneurial Family?

In this special episode, I’m joined by the amazing Aaron Beach. Not only is Aaron a father of three and an entrepreneur, but he’s also my incredible husband.

My guest this week is someone that I absolutely adore! I’ve known Andrea Wenburg for a little while and I’m even working with her in a professional capacity so I can have a better understanding of my voice of influence and how I can use that to stand out in a crowded niche.

[Tweet “Having a clear understanding of who are, what you have to say, and how you’re going to say it will stop you from being generic and forgettable.”]

Want To Create an Online Course but Hate Technology?

It’s no secret I kill technology. I don’t have a technological bone in my body and this was made very apparent when it was time to create my first online course and membership website. I struggled for years and wasted thousands of dollars … until I discovered Kajabi.

Kajabi is a platform that helps entrepreneurs create, market, sell, and distribute their knowledge online. Having been one of Kajabi’s first customers several years ago, I am extremely excited to bring you this interview with it’s Co-Founder, Travis Rosser.

Travis started his entrepreneurial journey selling oranges as a child on his family farm and has worked his way up to creating a platform that has allowed other entrepreneurs to generate more than 500 million dollars in revenue!

He’s also a father of three boys who’s based his entire corporate structure and culture around his family life so he never has to miss a moment with his children.

Why You Should Tune In?

I know from experience just how costly fighting technology can be. I also know from experience just how profitable knowledge-commerce is.

Online courses and membership websites create passive income and it’s widely known that passive income leads to more time and freedom to live the life you want.

[Tweet “I struggled for years and wasted thousands of dollars … until I discovered Kajabi.”]

What Can You Expect?

In this episode, you’ll get to hear Travis’ full entrepreneurial journey, my story of struggling to make other platforms work in the beginning and how Kajabi saved me, why Travis protects the company culture he’s worked intentionally to create, and how Kajabi can help you stop being afraid of technology and start making money selling your knowledge.
