01 Dec 78: I am a Mom AND an Entrepreneur with Jennifer Sanger
You’re a mama. What a beautiful gift in this life!
But you’re also an entrepreneur.
Society has conditioned us to believe that you have to be one or the other – that you must lose yourself in the mothering process, only to one day wake up and start the journey of re-finding WHO you are and WHAT you want.
Well today, my guest Jennifer Sanger and I are here to remind you that you are a mom AND an entrepreneur – not one or the other. We’re going to bust some common myths, talk about real-life struggles, and help you create a path that is more peaceful and enjoyable.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why the concept ‘work-life’ balance is an unrealistic expectation.
- How to let go of the nitty-gritty things in order to protect your energy.
- The importance of ‘just doing it’ and perfecting as you go.
- The trauma of racism and what we need to know about interracial partnerships.
- Why investing in yourself is so important as a business owner.
- The importance of putting yourself out there even if imposter syndrome is getting in your way.
- The difference between apologizing and saying ‘I’m sorry’.
- Advice on maintaining your mental health when juggling being a mom AND entrepreneur.
Jennifer is a mother of two, entrepreneur, wife, and fellow wine drinker. She quit her corporate job just before the COVID-19 shutdown to pursue her online boutique for infants and toddlers, Jamison & Bexley.

“It’s navigating like, ‘Okay, I need to do this. I’m not a fraud but I feel like a fraud. What makes me feel like a fraud?’ And get that out of my head.”
