Just kidding guys…

That’s actually a stock image…Look how chill she is…She can’t possibly have kids.

This is me…

Yeah, that’s more like it…I’m the girl with no make-up & a messy bun just trying to read a book while my almost-naked boys are chillin’ with some screen time. Do your kids insist on occupying the same space as you, too?

Back in 2016…

I started a little blog as a way to become “more than a mom.”

I had this fear that one day I was going to wake up as a 40-something-year-old woman with kids who were about to leave the nest and that I wouldn’t know how to do anything outside of motherhood…

I knew raising babies was an honorable life-choice…But I was afraid I was losing myself in the process…

Now, if you think I’m terrible for saying that, then you should probably move on…This site isn’t for you, sister.

But if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by your role as a parent, then honey, I’ve got what you need.

I’m Alicia and I’m a small-town girl from Southeast Missouri.

Here’s what I look like when I don’t have a lap-full of children.

I became a mom in 2009…

And if I’m honest, I will just tell you that motherhood hasn’t always been what I thought it would be…

I quickly realized that my first born was not a compliant child.

You know that meme about hoping your daughter’s sass leads her to run a board room and not a gang in prison?? Yeah, I’m pretty sure she was the inspiration for it…

Yes, my first little loin fruit gave me a run for my money indeed. (So naturally, we thought it was a good idea to have three more children…)

Anyway, loooooooong story short, I’ve had to work hard to figure out how to raise her.

So over the past decade, I have spent my time consuming all the parenting books and courses that I could get my hands on just so I could make it through…

And do you know what I learned along the way???

You can’t parent effectively from a place of burnout.

Around here I usually put it like this…You can’t pour from an empty cup.

That brings us up to now…

After all of my training, I am officially a Parenting & Life Strategist.

That just means that…

I specialize in helping women like you overcome burnout and live a life that you love…

So what does that look like in action?

Well, that depends on the day, actually…

I run mom events to inspire and rejuvenate the women who attend.

I speak and write about #thatmomlife.

I develop and teach courses that make your life easier.

I write mini books that simplify parenting & life.

I coach women who have that desire to be “more than a mom” to do what I did…Find their passions, develop their brands, and share their message with the world. (Want to know more about that? Click Here to see if I currently have any openings.)

And I’m working on the launch of a new project called “These Moms Mean Business” which will focus on my fellow #mombosses out there.

If I narrowed my message for you down to one simple thing, this would be it…

You were a person before you were a mother…and ignoring your needs or turning off parts of yourself inevitably leads to major burnout…believe me, I’ve been there, done that, & got the t-shirt…

That’s why I am so passionate about meeting women where they are in that pit and helping them OUT OF THE EMPTY.

Because here’s the thing…When you feed your needs and nourish yourself, then you better care for everyone who depends on you most.

Maybe you’re where i was…

❌ Overwhelmed…

Exhausted

Feeling like you give and give, but aren’t appreciated…

Wishing that you weren’t the default parent for once…

Feeling too worn out to be the mom you want to be…

Dreading when your kids wake up and impatient for bedtime…

Feeling like a bad mom…

Needing copious amounts of coffee or junk food or wine just to make it through…

Wishing everyone would just leave you alone…

I want you to know you’re not alone, Momma.

Ahem…Can I get an AMEN?!

But seriously…I’m jumping down in the pit with you because I know the way out…

So grab my hand.

I started writing this just for you. And I’m so glad you finally made your way here to my little corner of the interwebs…

Now do me (and you) a favor…
