Episode 106: Don’t Question Your Value, with Dana Malstaff
Dana is a mother, author, business & content strategist, coach, podcaster, and blind spot reducer. Dana is the author of “Boss Mom: The Ultimate Guide to Raising a Business & Nurturing Your Family Like a Pro,” and the founder of the Boss Mom Movement. She serves Boss Moms who yearn for more time and less guilt when it comes to building their business and raising their family by providing the tools they need to get more out of their content and business without sacrificing their family goals.
When she is not creating new courses or building new strategy tools for creative entrepreneurs, she can be found chasing her son on the beach, watching her daughter take her first steps, or thinking of the next fun new family adventure.
In this episode, Dana and Stacy discuss how you can handle a growing business at the same time as building a family.
Some highlights include:
“I spent the first year not knowing what on earth I was doing.” At minute 1:00, Dana talks about immediately getting pregnant after starting Boss Mom, how she made it through that first year, and what her life has been like ever since.
“I’m okay with shouldering the risk of my decisions.” At minute 11:00, Dana talks about being decisive and why people call her an “action coach.”
Before you hire a coach, you need to be ready for them. At minute 18:00, Dana talks about hiring a coach at a time when she just wasn’t ready to fully utilize the coach’s wisdom.
The idea of balance is exhausting. At minute 24:00, Dana talks about why she doesn’t even think about work-life balance. Instead, Dana thinks about conscious integration.
“I get to do whatever I want.” At minute 29:00, Dana talks about what she loves about being an entrepreneur and the challenges that come with that career choice.
