059: Having it all; Career, Kids and Contentment | Sarah Argenal

It is possible to find meaning and purpose and peace as a powerful mom and professional

[Sarah Argenal]

Having a successful career takes energy, drive and determination. Long hours, a heavy work load and the pressure to say yes to everything can be overwhelming. But when you become a parent and throw children into the mix, combining work and parenthood can start to really swamp you. But you don’t want to give either up.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll discover a way through that fog. Because it’s possible to be committed, not only to your family, but to keeping your career alive.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sarah Argenal.

Sarah and her husband, Joey live in San Diego, California. They have a 3 year old boy Beckett, and are expecting their second son in June. After becoming a mum, Sarah found the demands of working in Corporate Litigation alongside juggling family life to be exhausting and overwhelming. So she started a futile quest for help and information. But there was nothing out there.

She knew that something had to change, if not only for herself, but for the many other corporate parents who wanted to keep a firm foothold in both worlds.  After hundreds of hours of research, Sarah created her own support system and founded the Working Parent Resource.

Sarah offers her community of like-minded working mums and dads reliable information and practical training to help them successfully manage their career and home life. Her Frazzled to Balanced™ Bootcamp “helps ambitious working parents slow down and reclaim their time so they can focus on what matters most.”

Today Sarah shares her journey of navigating her corporate career; keeping her relationships alive and her home life happy; and being the best mum she can possibly be. All whilst helping other parents figure out how to have it all too. 

I’m delighted to have Sarah on my show today as she’ll teach you how to manage your time, conserve your energy; take time out to recharge and focus on you; AND achieve a happy balance between home and work.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The struggles Sarah faced during the early parenting years when trying to balance her career and life as a new mum
  • Why it’s better to focus on your levels of energy, rather than the amount of time you have
  • How to eliminate, automate and delegate when tackling your never-ending to-do list
  • How to ensure you’re taking time out to re-charge and focus on yourself, despite having a full life
  • Managing the energy-zapping and toxic people in your life, so you can be surrounded by high quality and supportive people
  • What balance looks like in Sarah’s incredibly busy but extremely fulfilling life

 

 Hope you enjoy todays show!

043: Reclaim You; How to Reignite your Passion, Power and Purpose | Sally Thibault

With experience comes wisdom

[Sally Thibault]

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be talking about how to rediscover a new passion, power and purpose in your life to create meaningful success and a purposeful balance in your life.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sally Thibault.

Sally has three adult children, one of whom is autistic, and lives on the Gold Coast of Australia with her husband of 35 years to the day. Sally is a professional Keynote Speaker, the author of two books, and a certified Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also a Women’s Success Mentor and facilitates the Reclaim You programs.

With over 35 years experience in the Health and Wellness Industry, Sally has been featured extensively in Australian national and local media and is currently the Health and Wellness Expert on a Queensland national radio programme.

As the mother of adult children, Sally gives us her benefit of hindsight and perspective on raising children, and she shares with us how she overcame many of the obstacles of motherhood.

It wasn’t an easy journey, having three children, one with Aspergers Syndrome, as well as managing her career.

Over the years, Sally has learned about the true meaning of purpose, parenting and living in the present. She believes the patterns of the past hold the solutions to what you want in the future. Today Sally will help us make sense of those patterns in order to follow through with the intentions you have set, and create success in your life as a mum.

I’m so happy to have Sally on my show today. She has so much wisdom to share from a mum who’s been there in the trenches. She’s here to share the strength and positivity she gained from her experiences throughout her mothering years.

037: Discover How to Set the Burning Desire in Your Belly Ablaze | Kate Greenstock

If you’re a mother, then you’re already having an impact on the world. Yes indeed-ee.

[Kate Greenstock]

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be discovering how to set the burning desire in your belly ablaze.

As a busy mum with competing demands and limited time you often feel torn and pulled in different directions. You pour out so much of yourself, your emotions, your energy into your family. It can feel like you’re carrying so much, but at the same time being ‘unproductive’ in the world’s eyes, despite wanting to make your mark.

But we’re going to give you another perspective.

My guest today is SuperMum Kate Greenstock

Kate, her husband, and their three children, who are 13, 11 and 7, live near Richmond Park in Greater London where she loves to breathe, cycle and deer stalk. Transitioning from a calling-the-shots career woman, to being a mother with no rule book to follow, proved to be more of a challenge than Kate expected.

But she found a solution, and along with it, her calling to help other mothers who were also feeling lost in motherhood.

At Wild Rubies, Kate helps mums to feel like they’re truly living, rather than just existing; re-discovering themselves and re-imagining their work lives in the process​.

If you’re tired of being seen as just a worker or just a mother, Kate will help you find a way forward. Then you get to be seen by the world full and whole, and in creative technicolour.

Kate gives you permission to ​take the space to breathe ​and​​ ​find the clarity ​needed ​to set your eyes on what’s ahead for you.

I’m so excited to welcome Kate to my show because she will teach you to be more like your children – incomplete, imperfect, curious, daring, outrageous and completely loved – and in doing so, fuel that fire in your belly.

In this episode, you’ll find out:

  • Why every mother is unique and has her own special impact on the world, and how to discover those qualities in yourself
  • How Kate overcame her struggle of moving from a corporate career to motherhood where there is no formula, no costume, nowhere to hide and worst of all, no map or guide
  • Why understanding our own core beliefs and values acts as a foundation stone for the way we are as women and mothers
  • Kate’s opinion of change and how we can better handle change in our lives
  • How as mums we can connect with our instincts to find our ‘thing’
  • How we can find our purpose in a crazy mummy world
  • How we can move away from the old and venture into something that suits us better

 Hope you enjoy todays show!

 

Tell me what you think?

If you have a question or want some advice from a bold mother who can help you birth something brilliant, ask away.

And let us know in the comments. Do you have something humming away in your pocket? Is it time to pull it out and discover its beauty, or do you need to be patient until the time is right?

Kate and I are waiting to hear you comments and help you out as much as possible.

Now, Go Conquer Motherhood!
