Do you find yourself hiding behind not having the time or energy to move your business forward? Perhaps you have children or other responsibilities that always seem to come first. But balance is possible. Christy Lingo is one of our amazing Mastermind members and entrepreneur mom who has built her business with balance in mind. 

“I feel so secure and stable in everything that I’ve done. I feel like I’m learning to do things the proper way rather than just doing it and then having to spend a couple months fixing what I’ve done.” -Christy Lingo

Christy is no stranger to entrepreneurship. She started her first business several years ago, but as she grew in her skills and in her role as a mom, she realized that she is brilliant at a few key things. One of those things is helping her children to feel motivated, inspired, and encouraged to find their independence.

She has created a course to help parents imbue their children with the skills needed to play and learn independently. None of this would have been possible however unless she was willing to do life and business her way. 

Listen as she shares what her schedule looks like, why meditation and a morning routine are imperative to her growth, and how fun it can be to really engage your kids. She has been a source of constant inspiration to me and I’m so excited to have her share her positive attitude and can-do spirit with you. 

Never think that you don’t have the time to make your dreams come true. It’s never about the time. Why are you holding back and playing small?

“Even if it’s 1% true, it’s our job to be looking at that and be the observer and ask ourselves, “What does this actually mean?” and lean into it because that’s where the good stuff is.” – Emily Williams
