So, remember that one time I got to take headshots on that private jet with the coolest chick ever on the coolest day ever?
Just kidding. I know you do.
I’ve been cramming it down your throats for the past three months. I figure if I talk about it enough, www.JetSmarter.com will just go ahead and give me an honorary membership. I’m fairly certain they would only do that for “influencers,” but I mean–c’mon–I have direct influence over TWO WHOLE PEOPLE who will be able to buy their own tickets in as little as 16-ish years. So, there’s that to think about, JetSmarter.
Anyway, you know how much I love to support a working gal, so I wanted to make sure I give one last push for you to go and vote for Summer of Mommy Points.
USA TODAY included Mommy Points in their “10 Best” Reader’s Choice awards for the Best Miles and Points Blog category! So cool, right?! Today is the last day to vote. Don’t wait!
Last week I posted a video in my FB group asking about who you spend time with. This is what I’m talking about. You know how you have some women in your life, and they are so awesome that they make you motivated to go out and do good things?
At the same time, you also think, “Good night. How does she do it?? How is she awesome at everything?” And I’m guessing Summer would probably say something to the effect of, “I’m not awesome at everything by any means. I’m just working and raising a family like everyone else.”
Yes. We all are. Even the supermoms are really just doing their best.
(And if you are reading this and often compare yourself to those supermoms in a negative way? Ease up, lady. We are all out there trying our best. And guess what? No one is doing it all right all the time. At the end of the day, we are trying to be happy and healthy. You are a supermom, too.)
So, when I see Summer doing it so well–handling being a fun and cool mom with this groovy job she’s created for herself, I really have thought: Ok, but really–how does she do it??
Well, when we spent a workday together (I mean, can I really get away with calling this a “work” day?), I found out.
This lady doesn’t quit.
It’s no wonder she can write dozens of blog posts a month, because she’s always writing. She’s always posting online and keeping her followers up to date, and they love her! Really, every blog post usually has dozens of comments from people also wanting to share tips and help each other out. What a great service to give to the world.
I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Rise and Grind.” Well, I prefer “Rise and Hustle.” This morning at the bus stop, my daughter said, “So what are you going to do with your life today?” I said, “Ooh, good question,” and then proceeded to list about 30 hours’ worth of work. It is a non-stop hustle out there for a mom with a small business.
And like I tell my husband when he gets frustrated at how hard it is when I’m giving him camera lessons (because I’m really trying to teach him how to be my second shooter):
Just because I make it look easy doesn’t mean it is.
And Summer makes it look easy, but don’t think for one second that she’s not working hard all the time. So, do me a favor and vote for my friend and fellow hustler: VOTE HERE
Happy November, y’all! I am already making lots of travel plans for 2018, so if you need a little hustler as your carry-on, give me a shout.
