Lisa began her entrepreneurial journey as a part-time freelancer, juggling her responsibilities as a single parent with her ambition to provide for her family. Over time, her side hustle evolved into a thriving business — fueled by the need to get creative with her schedule and her commitments. 

Listen for key takeaways:

How to Embrace Constraints: We love how Lisa views constraints as opportunities for growth and innovation, instead of letting them hold her back. 

Time Management: Lisa mastered the art of time-blocking, carving out dedicated slots for her business, family time, and taking care of herself. She realized that accepting help, such as carpooling, allowed her to be a better mom and entrepreneur.

Mindset: Listen for how Lisa upleveled her mindset as she built her business and family life.

Community & Support: You’ll also hear Lisa’s tips for finding your community and getting the support you deserve. 

Boundaries: Lisa shares practical tips for setting expectations and creating empowering language around your boundaries.

Finding Freedom: Like so many parents who are also entrepreneurs, Lisa loves the opportunity to shape her business around her life, rather than fitting her life around her work.

Taking Charge: Lisa’s journey as a single parent was marked by her decision to take full responsibility for her situation, viewing it as an opportunity for growth rather than a setback.

Lisa’s story is a shining example of resilience, creativity, and the power of a positive mindset. Her journey from a single parent with a side hustle, to a seven-figure entrepreneur serves as an inspiration for all of us, reminding us that our challenges can also be our greatest opportunities for growth.
