It is possible to navigate motherhood and entrepreneurship—without burning out.

It's time to address the elephant in the room- How did I end up as coach when I am a psychiatrist?

I had just left my psychiatry job and was hoping to rest. It was a stressful job and I needed time to wrap my head around it all. That’s when life took at 180.   It was 5:30 am in the morning.  My hands were shaking while I stared in disbelief.  Clear as a blue sky, the pregnancy test had 2 pink lines.  I was pregnant. 

My heart was racing.  “I am going to be a mom”.   I sat there in silence and prayed.  “Please let this be a viable pregnancy.”  God answered my prayer.  9 months later, my son Logan was born.  Seeing his sweet face for the first time, I wanted to stay home and be with my son.  I also wanted to continue to help others and work. 

I saw how powerful coaching was when I was getting coached from burnout in my previous job.  I decided to get certified as a coach and started my business while raising my baby at the same time.  

“Alright, I can figure this out.  How hard can it be?”  Famous last words. I tried having set hours to work on my business.  With a newborn son, I quickly realized that wasn’t going to happen.  Taking a shower was a major accomplishment at that point. 

“Ok, that didn’t work.  Maybe working early in the morning after his feeding would be a good idea.”  Lesson learned: Social media posts at 2 am in the morning while sleep deprived is never a good idea

As time went on, I fell into a vicious cycle of trying to do it all in the short amount of time I had.  The first year of business and motherhood was a hot mess.  I tried to do so much in the limited time I had.  I was exhausted, frazzled, stressed and overwhelmed. The chaos of balancing diapers and deadlines was starting to take its toll.  I wanted to burn my business to the ground.  Something had to change.

 I refused to let this be the end of my entrepreneurial journey.

Drawing upon my expertise as a psychiatrist and coach, I embarked on figuring out how to reclaim my time and get a handle on the emotional rollercoaster that often accompanies the business-mom life.

I became my own guinea pig, putting my newfound strategies to the test while juggling the demands of entrepreneurship and caring for my young son. With each step forward, I learned valuable lessons and fine-tuned my approach until I struck gold.

It wasn’t easy, but through trial and error, I developed a plan that truly worked.

That plan is called Biz Mom Balance Blueprint.
