Great ideas

Life with Yolie-blog

Do you ever have great ideas at inconvenient times? I was supposed to be in bed two hours ago but I’m so overwhelmed by the response I received by fellow female entrepreneurs that I’m too excited to lay in bed.

I knew my new podcast series would be a great idea and now that its official and we are ready to launch in a few weeks, I just can’t sleep! I also think my creativity is the most bright when the house is quiet and I have a moment to gather my thoughts.

My days can be a whirlwind with business calls, handling the kids, employee issues and then coming home and cooking and cleaning. Okay, who am I lying to? I outsource the cleaning, but I do a light sweep and dust!

I just stared reading Lori Harders book “A Tribe called Bliss” and it’s a must read for females! I will give you guys the full review once I finish it but I can already tell it’s a good one by what I have already read.

Marriage

Marriage is all about choices..

Let me explain, my husband and I have been spending less time together because of his work schedule and since kids are out of school, I’m the primary caretaker. So life can sometimes be a struggle for us, for example, I would like to spend more time outside of “work mode” but I try my best not to nag him about it because the business is a priority for both us.

So when we do spend time together I try to make it of quality vs quantity. That’s sometimes hard to do because, as any other couple, we  have disagreements.

That’s where choices come in, I can try and argue my point  or I can let it go and enjoy the moment. This used to be hard for me, I HAD to win an argument. Now, I just let it go. I’am human and sometimes will snap at him but I will quickly realize my tone of voice and apologize and let it go.

Yes, ladies, I will apologize even if I’m not in the wrong!!! WHY WOULD I DO THAT, RIGHT? Well, at the end of the day I want him to enjoy his downtime. He has to deal with so much at work, I don’t want him distracted with our fights. Don’t get confused,  I do pick my battles! Marriage, like life is all about choices.

As I write this, I’m drinking a glass of Stella Rose while he watches Casino for the 100th time. I would like to go to furniture shopping but I know he hates it and I know I’ll be annoyed at his attitude, so I rather go by myself and enjoy this moment with him. He does it for me too, he’s not much of a reader so when we go to Barnes and Nobles and stay there for a few hours, I know his smile is forced but I appreciate him just being there.

Choices ladies…CHOICES!

YESS!!!! You go Yolie!

the unfiltered wife-2Yes, that’s me patting myself on the back. I started the behind the scenes work to start the new series of my podcast.  Drum roll please!!! Say hello to my new baby

“THE UNFILTERED WIFE”

A new look on how we view female entrepreneurs. This is the real deal. The Unfiltered Wife podcast!

This new series was my first target goal BUT I needed to change the direction of my career and put myself out there first. I needed to put myself in an uncomfortable situation so I could get comfortable.

In a few days I will be letting you guys in on who I will be having as guests. I’m super excited and seriously can’t wait for you guys to listen to it!

I confess..

I sometimes struggle with keeping it all together! It’s always easier to throw my hands up in the air and saying I give up! My dreams aren’t this important to keep hustling everyday.  But when times get tough or I feel tired, I see two little faces looking at me, and that look is what I need to motivate me. To show them that if you work hard, anything you want is possible. So, mamas.. KEEP PUSHING!! WE GOT THIS!
