Be a Total Boss

Being a “total boss” is not about being perfect. This idea that anyone can “do it all” is downright laughable. In fact… it’s the ultimate unachievable standard. But just because you aren’t doing everything right doesn’t mean that you still can’t be a Total Boss. No way! Being a Total Boss is all about attitude. It’s about having the confidence to do your “thing,” whatever that might be, with swagger and style.

There are so many ways I feel like I’m a Total Boss. I mean, maybe my kids need a few reminders of this fact, but HEY – I’m running with it!

My kids tell me all the time that it would be cool if they had their own channel on YouTube. So, what do I do? I get a gig with YouTube and become part of their YouTube Parent Panel. Always ahead of the curve! BOOM!

I’m also the mom that goes on all the rides… even though I am deathly afraid. Anything for the kids. Just. Keep. Smiling.

When we are out, I always make sure to point out accurate signs that represent true facts of life. You have to teach them young!

I also do a ton of work from home and my children always see me in action. I love to have them watch my hustle.

And after three kids, I don’t always worry about all the rules. For example, strawberry picking can happen any which way they’d like. As long as we are all having fun.

After 20 years of being together, I make sure to keep an active sense of humor… and make sure my husband has one as well.

While I am a woman who likes to have a lot of fun, sometimes I put myself out there and try real physical challenges. Even though I am not always certain about the outcome, I walk into every opportunity with confidence. If you can do it, then so can I! I teach my children to have these same values as well.

I also feed my kids three square meals a day. Well, I feed them three meals a day at least!

One of my biggest accomplishments at home is knowing how to save money. I also know how to spend money, don’t get me wrong. I know how to LIVE. But it’s all about knowing where to splurge and where to save. For instance, I always need the latest tech, but then I seek out the best carrier deal because I’m not one to agree to terms that don’t make sense for my family.
