Fall Gratitude - Editor's Letter

I believe life should be lived as a series of celebrations – big and small. Celebrating different levels of milestones, accomplishments, transitions and even baby steps taken each day. It is the focusing on the now, your purpose and living in gratitude that makes happiness and balance a real lifestyle.

The Fall season brings many reasons to celebrate, such as, surviving another summer and the first day of school for our kids. As we enjoy and anticipate the back-to-school “season”, take time to celebrate how the summer went. Make the first week of school a time for you as a mom to do something fun, relaxing and inspiring. Choose a Spa Day, get a massage, enjoy a mani & pedi, get your hair done a little different, sign up for an inspirational workshop, have a small Mom’s night out or even a date night with your significant other.

Yes, we have lots to do, but we also deserve and need time for ourselves to take care of our own health and well-being. Throughout all the interviews and features we’ve done for this magazine, the number one advice that keeps popping up is the airplane analogy. Place your own oxygen mask on before you put your kids’ mask on. Why do we forget to do this on a regular basis? Do we really need to wait for an emergency situation (i.e. a health scare, a break-down, family crisis, marriage crisis, etc.) to occur in order for us to put ourselves first so that we can be more attentive and effectively take care of our family and everything else?

This issue is a celebration of Mom Entrepreneurs as we boldly move ahead, charging forward and taking more control of our lives. It is about believing in yourself, being that role-model for your kids, living your passion and purpose and making a difference in so many people’s lives. It is also about living the dream in real balance and keeping your core values in place by leaving that “Super Mom” expectation behind to be the best Mom you can be.

The Mom Entrepreneur Success Conference in September will be an experience like no other. As working moms, we juggle so much to make things happen. This event gives moms the opportunity to meet other like-minded business women and to finally realize the strengths we already have inside of us and bring it out in our daily lives to attract success in our business and families.

After all, being a great mom is not about doing it all, it’s about being your all.

Jennifer Griner
