This NEW weekly series highlights women who are successfully running their online business while managing a household to #NormalizeTheShitShow that comes with the territory of “doing it all”. These moms are going to share the messy side of running their biz & raising kids, what a typical day in the life looks like (does this even exist?!), how they deal with mom guilt and SO MUCH MORE! You're getting a sneak peek into what their life looks like so you don't have to feel bad when you haven't bathed your kids in weeks & they have avocado in their hair as they lay in their crib (guilty 🙋🏼♀️). This week we’re hanging out with Kristina Dowler of Dot The I’s Outsourcing. 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨 & 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬. I'm a virtual assistant and content creator for small business owners nationwide who crave more time with their families and desire more freedom in their lives. I serve as a copywriter for blogs, social media, and newsletters. Additionally, I work with clients to determine and create workflows and systems to keep their businesses moving forward. 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐤𝐢𝐝𝐬 𝐝𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞? 𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐚𝐠𝐞𝐬? 1 son, he's 2 (almost 2.5) What's the hardest part of running your business and being a mom? GUILT. I constantly feel like I'm not giving enough attention to either my son or my business. For the longest time, I felt I had to do both at the same time; it never ended well. I still struggle with guilt every day, even when I try my best to respect the boundaries my family has put into place.

“I’LL JUST JOIN NEXT TIME” Sound familiar? This is something that I’ve said to myself every time I was scared to do something ..in life or business. The funny thing about this though is that “next time” never comes. We say this to ourselves because it gives us comfort knowing that we can stay exactly where we’re at right now...the safe zone 🤦🏼♀️ But what we need to REALLY think about is what happens when we don’t make the investment. It could mean... ➡️Staying in that soul-sucking 9-5 (I know because I did it for MANY years) ➡️Continue signing up for free trainings that we *hope* will give us a few nuggets that we can use ➡️Floundering around wondering what we want to do and who we want to help Well..there’s an easier way. It’s called Scalable Service Accelerator and the doors close TODAY so if you’re sick of saying “next time” (again)..let’s make NOW the time that you invest in yourself ...because you’re worth it, girl 😉 Click the link in my bio to sign up ASAP or send me a DM and we’ll make sure that it’s a perfect fit for you ❤️
You haven't reached $3K+ months in your business yet because you don't have .... ➡️Online course ➡️Massive budget for FB/IG ads ➡️Free FB group ➡️A podcast ➡️Daily social media posts ➡️Perfect branding I'm sure someone popped up in your feed at one point or another telling you that you need all (or a combination of them) in order to reach four-figure months in your biz. 𝐒𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐫𝐭: 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨𝐧'𝐭 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐀𝐍𝐘 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐢𝐠 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥𝐬! The truth is that it's actually a lot more simple than that! How do I know? Because I've done it! I grew my own virtual assistant business to $10K+ & a few $14K months without any of these things! It takes a proven roadmap, strategy and support from someone who's walked that path before to guide you. That's exactly what we're doing inside of Scalable Service Accelerator so we can fast-track your service-based biz to help you reach your big, scary goals! Not sure what SSA is?

I WAS IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP FOR FIVE YEARS For those that don't know me personally, I was in an abusive relationship between the ages of 17-22. I wasn't "allowed" to drink alcohol, go away to the state school that all of my friends were at, have friends in general, or talk to other guys...among other things. Why would I be with someone that treated me like that for so long, you ask? When we first met, he was amazing. A true prince charming! 😍 But after about 6 months, when I was head over heels for him, the REAL guy came out. People would ask me all the time, why I was with him when he treated me so poorly but it wasn't that easy. I couldn't just pack up and leave him because ... 1) I TRULY feared for my life if I did 2) He made me believe that no one would ever "love" me the way that he did So I ate my feelings..and gained 60+ pounds over the course of 2 years. I was miserable, hated myself and contemplated taking my life because like he said, no one loved me so how could I love myself? Fast forward to when I was 22. We were living together in a tiny apartment and one night as I was doing laundry, I found a receipt from a date that he went on in his pants pocket. I always thought that he was cheating but never had proof so I stayed with him...until that night. As soon as I found that receipt, I packed everything, called my mom and moved out. Needless to say, the following years were a BATTLE with my emotions, trust issues..etc. Why am I telling you this? Because despite everything that I've gone through in my life, I've been able to come out on top. I lost the 60+ pounds (gained it back but that's another story 😂), met my now-husband, had a beautiful baby boy, worked my booty off to have an amazing corporate career and recently started two very successful online businesses (VA/biz coach). I don't make excuses for what happened in my past. I look forward because THAT'S what matters most. And that's what I want for you too. I don't want you to make excuses for not reaching your goals. You CAN do it! You are MORE than capable. *Continued in the comments*
ARE YOU A MOM & BIZ OWNER? KEEP READING... A few months ago, I decided to go all-in on normalizing the shit show that is being a mom & business owner during #MomBossMondays. If you follow me on IG stories you've seen my son eating dog food, pulling garbage out of the can, being an insane monster, and me *trying* not to pull my hair out in the process. But now I'm taking it one step further. I'm bringing other moms into the mix too 😎 EVERY Monday I'll take you behind the scenes of my insane life as a mom & biz owner AND I'll also introduce you to other moms who are doing the same thing! This isn't just any spotlight though. We're going behind the scenes and getting REAL! 😜 These moms are going to share the messy side of running their biz & raising kids, what a typical day in the life looks like (does this even exist?!), how they deal with mom guilt and SO MUCH MORE! You're getting a sneak peek into what their life looks like so you don't have to feel bad when you haven't bathed your kids in weeks & they have avocado in their hair as they lay in their crib (guilty 🙋🏼♀️). ...and they're getting a TON of exposure for their business too! 💥 So, if you're ready to #NormalizeTheShitShow that is mom life/biz ownership, comment below with "I'm Ready" and I'll send you the link to apply for your own feature! 👇🏼
You're doing it on your own because you think you're saving money 🤦🏼♀️ You think you can hang out on Google/Pinterest, download freebies & a couple of $97 courses and the answers will all come barreling toward you. You've worked your booty off your whole life so why should running a successful business be any different? This is what I told myself for years because I was able to graduate college in 3 years (instead of 4), earn 4 promotions in 3 years at my corporate job, be the top performer on every team I was involved in 💁🏼♀️ As much as I'd love to say it works when you do it this way (because who doesn't want to save money) it doesn't! I learned this the hard way (over the course of 2.5 years running my VA biz, 4 years total online) and that's exactly what I DON'T want for you! 🤦🏼♀️ In reality, you need... ➡️Support from someone who's walked that path before you ➡️A step-by-step action plan that's customized to YOUR business ➡️Tools, strategies & resources that are PROVEN to uplevel your success This is EXACTLY what you're getting inside of Scalable Service Accelerator. The doors are closing on Friday and there are only a few spaces left so if you're ready to uplevel your biz to reach at least $3K months, time is running out to save your spot! Comment below with 🙋♀️and we'll make sure it's a perfect fit for you!
