I popped out of my office yesterday in between clients to go use the bathroom.
On my way, I breezed by our sleeping baby.
But then I backtracked. And I stood over her for a few seconds, just watching her sleeping.
You know, #stalkermom style 🤣
But seriously though, I had a moment.
With my first baby, I missed out on so so many of these little moments.
Of her learning to talk and walk. And now she’s 8 and practically ready to leave for college.
I was too busy working. Hustling to build my practice.
I had no strategy, just grit, which equaled a LOTTTTTT of hours away from my family.
Because that’s what I thought I was supposed to do to be successful.
When my second baby came, I knew without a doubt that I wanted to be a lot more present with her in the day to day.
It was non-negotiable for me.
So I sold my practice, but that quickly left me feeling directionless and purposeless.
Who was I if not a chiropractor?
Over the course of the next few years—with a lot of introspection, self-reflection and digging in to creating a life and practice that I really wanted (not just what I thought I was “supposed” to do or “should” do)—
I started to see life and practice completely differently.
I learned how to apply some strategies that allowed me to work way smarter in my practice so that I could be profitable very quickly without sacrificing being present with my girls.
Some of those strategies I learned from rockstar business coaches. Some seemed to come to me through divine intervention (or I merely made them up, not sure 😆).
All of it is now what I teach to other women in chiropractic here in Mama Chiropractors and specifically in Aligned Women.
Whether your “baby” is 16, 8, 4, 1 (the ages of all the kids in our family), or perhaps not even conceived yet...
If you want to have a profitable practice that you love, that doesn’t require you to sacrifice being present with your family, hanging out here is great.
But if you’re ready to take the next step check out my free audio training that will teach you in 26-minutes the exact strategies you need to put in place to be #presentandprofitable 🙌🏼 Get access here.
Now off to squeeze this little monkey (the human one in the picture below) before she decides she’s too grown for cuddles!
