When I was a child, I dreamed of what my life would look like as a grown up. I dreamed up what kind of a house I would have (a red brick house with a white picket fence), the kind of car I would drive (my dream car when I was 12 was a pink convertible), and of course what my husband and kids would look like (I still pinch myself sometimes when I realize that I have 6 amazing kids!!!)

While my car isn’t pink, my adult reality has far surpassed my dreams:

But of course, what I never realized as a child was the amount of work that goes into taking care of a house or a car in your adulthood. From regular maintenance, to unexpected damages, to legal papers and getting home and auto insurance, the actual process of owning a home and a car can sometimes feel a lot less dream like.

As a busy working mom, I am always looking for ways to streamline my life, and save time and energy. So today, I am teaming up with the Canadian home and auto insurance company Esurance, to help make this important aspect of owning a home and a car a little less stressful.

While the “grown-up” realities of owning a home and a car aren’t always easy, getting the best home and auto insurance for your family shouldn’t be hard. Here are a few ways that Esurance makes the process of getting the right policy for your family an easy one.

2. It’s competitive

With an award-winning website and innovative tools, tech-savvy consumers can save money with Esurance through a myriad of incentive discounts for those who qualify- check out 10 ways you can save on home insurance here.

Hello!!!!! First of all, big time apologies for the lack of blogging over the last little while. As I have shared over on Instagram, my family is going through a brand new transition, and that has occupied quite a bit of my time.

We are moving. And our decision to move was not made lightly. We really discerned, prayed, strategized, and thought hard about our decision. It is scary to break what is familiar, and what is safe.

But in order to move toward our ideal lives, we must take action. Growth does not happen by wishing and hoping. It happens as a result of ACTION.

Do you have big dreams in your heart but aren’t sure how to do them amidst the grind of raising kids, running a house, and taking care of yourself? Do you want to make big changes in your life but have no idea where to start? Do you have goals that you have had on a list forever and FINALLY want to see completed? Are you overwhelmed, exhausted, directionless, and wish a fairy godmother could come and help you out?

I want to help you.

I have been thinking long and hard about how I can help more moms realize their dreams, feel less overwhelmed, and simply just live their best life possible. So I am happy to announce I am starting a coaching service, specific for moms who want to follow their dreams but not sacrifice their families at the same time.

To kick start this new chapter in my business, I am offering what I am calling a “Possibility Mom Breakthrough Call” (borrowing from the title of my upcoming book The Possibility Mom), and in this call I will help you:

  • clarify what is important to you
  • help you find more time, joy and freedom
  • assist you in designing a life with a lot less overwhelm

Calls will be 45 minutes in length and here’s the best part- they are 100% FREE.

But they won’t be free forever : ) 

To book your time with me, all you have to do is click here and answer a few questions to get you all set up. At the end of our call, I’ll be offering some options how we might work together further.

These calls will only be available until December 31, 2017. So don’t miss out- book your time here.

I want to help you live your best life possible, uncover and articulate what is unique about you, and help you craft your ideal story. So if you have ever thought the following:

  • I want to start a business but have no idea how with small kids at home
  • I’ve been a mom for so long and want to pursue personal passions but don’t know where to start
  • I work too much and want more balance so I can actually spend time with my family
  • I’m tired of being overwhelmed, there must be another way

I promise, I can help. As a working mom of 6 who for too long chased dreams that weren’t really mine, I have been in that uncomfortable place of knowing I needed to change but did not know how.

I promise, there is another way.

I am so excited to start this new chapter of my business, and if you’re with me, book your time right here.
