Life isn’t always straightforward. Blended families are now common-place. Women have careers to juggle as well as the kids. There’s so much to think about and so much to juggle that it’s hard to know what to focus on first.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing blended families, forging a career you love and how to stay on top of work and home.

My guest today is SuperMum, Fay Wallis.

Fay lives in Greater London, with her husband, Ian and their sons who are 10 and 5 years. Fay’s blended family is a labyrinth, spanning two generations. Her parents having been married 4 times, she has two half siblings, two full siblings and 2 step siblings. This helped Fay to negotiate the logistics of parenting children with vast age ranges and different needs. For when she married Ian, he too had children from his first marriage, and she became a step-mother herself.

Whilst juggling the logistics of organising Sunday lunches and enough birthday and Christmas presents to serve a small army, Fay forged a successful career in HR. She later trained to become a Career Coach, helping people to access the tools to empower themselves to lead a fulfilling working life.

Fay will help us navigate the maze of returning to work, changing career and spending quality time with family, all whilst finding enough time to look after herself too.

I am excited to welcome Fay to my show today where she will tell us all about her busy life and empower you to live the career and home lives you deserve.

Let’s just say ….

You love your job

You enjoy every moment with your kids

You can’t bear to be away from your husband

And you want to spend all weekend washing clothes and ironing shirts.

Let’s just say.

Even in perfect-land, taking time out to reboot is really good for the soul.

And for the rest of us who aren’t living in that bubble, it’s even more important.

This week on High Five Friday, Lisa York talks about how to press the reset button and do a complete mummy reboot in just 24 hours.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Feb 20, 2017

Do you feel under pressure to feed your children healthily when all they want are sweets and chocolate? Do you feel bewildered by food labels that appear to be healthy but you’re not quite sure?

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll discover about a passion so strong, it became a life changer.

My guest today is SuperMum, Bel Smith.

Bel is a Health and Wellness coach and lives a life on the road with her husband, Israel, ten year old daughter and six year old son. Last year they made the giant leap of selling their home and investing in a big green bus named Kaley. Bel and her family made it their mission to spend two years touring Australia spreading the important message of eating well for a better life.

Bel is the creator of the Mad Food Science™ Programme where she teaches children, parents and teachers how to understand food labelling and make informed choices. She also created the 5 Minute Healthy Lunchbox System™ as a way to help reduce the stress for parents packing lunch boxes.

Having turned to nutrition to treat her husband’s diagnosis of depression, Bel quickly saw the affects the quality of nutrition were having on all members of her family. She learned that what you put in your body has a direct affect on your mood, emotions and overall wellness. Bel knows that knowledge of nutrition is a powerful tool to both mental and physical wellness and wanted to spread her message.

Today Bel shares her family’s incredible journey across the length and breath of Australia. And she encourages you to think, ‘What would Jamie [Oliver] do?’ not only when considering your food choices, but your life choices.

I’m delighted to have Bel on my show today as she’ll teach you how to transform your life through following your passion, standing for what you believe in, and the power of self belief.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Feb 17, 2017

Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore is not an act, but a habit.”

True words. But creating new habits isn’t easy for a rushed-off-your-feet mum.

But then, can you afford NOT to have daily rituals?

If mum of three busy boys aged 5, 3 and 6 months can find time to prime herself each morning for the day ahead, then so can you.

This week on High Five Friday, Michelle Dawson talks about the incredible power of a daily morning ritual to set you up for the day.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? A confident, strong and empowered woman, or a tired and frazzled wreck?

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll learn that, how you view yourself as a women and as a mother, is a strong reflection to your children upon which they base their own behaviours.

My guest today is SuperMum, Christine Watts.

Christine and her husband live in rural Victoria, Australia, and have three daughters in their twenties. She’s an experienced teacher who has taught all age groups, and was a founding member of a Steiner school.

Christine now works with children, parents and teachers to help children build confidence, have high self esteem, create physical awareness and develop emotional intelligence.

Christine believes that it’s not the words you say to your children that really matters, but who you reveal yourself to be. How you choose to behave, to act, and to express yourself as a mother, has a direct impact on your children because they follow the lead of your example.

Christine encourages you to use innovation, creativity and imagination as the basis for raising happy, healthy and confident children. By doing so, this empowers our little ones to be the greatest version of themselves and enables them to create a brilliant world for themselves.

Which means, of course, a brilliant world for you too.

I am excited to welcome Christine to my show today because she’ll introduce you to using your own values and core beliefs to model the behaviours you want your children to mirror.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Feb 10, 2017

You’ve probably had moments where you hit rock bottom. I know I have.

You feel that if one more thing goes wrong, you’ll surely snap. And that’s all part of the job description when you’re a mum.

But who do you turn to?

Your husband. Your best friend. Your mum. Your sister.

Of course. They’re there to support you. But

A key person you can turn to, is you.

This week on High Five Friday, I talk about being your own best friend and your own greatest advocate.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

How do you know whether you’re being successful as a mum when there’s no measure? No pay rise, no promotion, no pat on the back.

In this episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll find out what success looks like in your role as a mum so you can go out and start to achieve it.

My guest today is SuperMum, Jody Moore.

Jody lives in Roseville, California with her husband and four children who are 14 months, 3, 9 and 10. Jody is a Speaker, Life Coach and Momologist. That’s right, a Momologist. She’s an expert on mums.

Through her work, Jody helps mums understand and define success and believes that happiness is a skill that can be taught. Once Jody figured out how to change her own reality to a much happier one, she couldn’t keep it to herself and went on to found the Bold New Mom community.

In her decade of experience bringing up children, Jody knew her role as a mum was the most important one. Yet, like a lot of mums, felt it was the one she was the least qualified to perform well. This led her to learn about how to be successful in the ‘job’, and to reprogram her mind to achieve it. She realised that negative emotion and disappointment can actually be used to serve us.

Jody will teach you that being successful will help shape other areas of your life. In doing so, you can relieve yourself of the pressure to always have to get it right; drop your innate desire to continually keep your children happy; and start to retain your own identity despite the relentless demands of motherhood.

I am delighted to have Jody on my show today as she’ll help you understand that success is measured by things within your control, and will hand you the tools you need to excel as a mum.

Go Conquer Motherhood!

Being a mother is tough.

When you first start out, you’re thrown in at the deep end and left to deal with crying newborns, tantrum-ing toddlers and projectile vomit.

And that’s before breakfast.

Bless their dear little hearts.

The early years give us a plentiful supply of challenges. (Someone tell me it gets easier. Please.)

This week on High Five Friday, Libby Lennon shares with us her biggest challenge of the early years.
