The truths about motherhood and being a business owner with Adrienne Doubrava, PsyD, Psychologist

In this episode, I had a great chat with Adrienne Doubrava, PsyD, about the challenges of being a mom while running a business. Let’s dive into the key takeaways!

Balancing Motherhood and Business

Adrienne and I talked about the ups and downs of balancing motherhood and building a business. Adrienne shared her own experiences, and we remembered how we met before becoming moms. We both agreed that finding support from other moms who understand our struggles is crucial. It’s comforting to know we’re not alone on this journey!

The Challenges of Work-Life Balance 

One thing that stood out to Adrienne was the feeling of drowning in responsibilities and never having enough time. I relate! Being a mom is a lot of work, and it’s important to talk about the challenges openly. We also discussed the need for a supportive community, where moms can come together and share their experiences. Nobody should feel isolated!

Flexibility and Self-Compassion

Flexibility is key when it comes to finding the right balance. Adrienne and I talked about the importance of being adaptable and adjusting our expectations. It can be tough to set aside our egos and make choices that prioritize our families, but it’s necessary. We realized that it’s okay to have different standards now that we’re moms.

Here are some tips to help you navigate the world of motherhood and business ownership:

  • Find a supportive community of moms who understand your experiences.
  • Take time for self-care activities that nourish your mind, body, and soul. You deserve it!
  • Embrace flexibility and be willing to adapt to the demands of both motherhood and entrepreneurship.
  • Practice self-compassion and avoid comparing yourself to others. You’re doing great!
