I'm Emily — a resourceful mom but, if I'm being honest, a terrible prepper. It wasn't until I realized that...

Meet Emily

In today’s Biz Pep Talk, I’m talking about the trap many mom entrepreneurs find themselves in and how to break free from it: trading time for money. 

I share how I transitioned my business from one that required a lot of my physical time and also drained my energy, leaving me without as much to give to my family, to one that gives me a lot of freedom and the ability to scale up or down depending on my season, desire, or needs. 

In this episode I cover:

  • The traditional “time for money” business model that leverages growing a team to get more time and why this doesn’t always work for many of us – especially moms who want to pour into their homes & families more than an office/large teams
  • The mindset shift of viewing money as potentially limitless vs. time, which is completely finite
  • How to make more impact and income by sharing your knowledge or expertise in an online course
  • Simple questions to ask to figure out what kind of course you could create and sell to others
  • The positive ways this business model has impacted my company and my life and how you can get started doing it for yourself
  • The exact method I use to create a course that doesn’t require a ton of time or money before getting your first paid customers (can be found at
