As work at home mums we tend to get little chunks of time to get things done. In order for me to build an income writing resumes, I've needed a system that allows me to get a heap of work done in nap times and in the little pockets of time I can grab between chasing kids around. In Resume School, I share with you my four-STEP process for putting a resume together. S - SORT Sort through the info gathered from your client, doing an info-dump from the client questionnaire directly into the resume template. T - TIDY Tidy up the formatting ie. fix font sizes, adjust dot points, delete the placeholder text. E - EDIT Work through every word, condensing, culling, reviewing, expanding, ensuring every word earns its place. P - POLISH Read through with fresh eyes after a break. This is your read-out-loud proof read. We go through each of these steps in detail in the course. You see me put a resume together in real time, breaking the process down into the four steps. Nothing is too challenging when you break it down into bite size chunks. My four-part process is one of my secret-weapons to getting real productive work done with kids at home. Sometimes my mini only has a 40 minute nap, but using this exact process, I manage to get so much done in that time. Some parts I can do with him awake, but the polish I always do in those little buckets of uninterrupted time. You might think you don't have time, but something I've learned is that often it's not about time but about motivation. In this course I share the ways I stay motivated and productive and am able to pump through 5+ resumes a week, while caring for young kids. Yes I work hard, yes I get tired. But I love what I do, so it doesn't feel like work. We kick off on the 28th of January. The first 10 people to enrol get the BONUS free enrolment into 'Working with Mums' and a discounted enrolment into 'Become a Career Coach.' Payment plans are now available. Are you in? Link in bio. 💙
Yesterday was spent starting something new as I was committing to my new fitness and nutrition program for the next 6 weeks. My little man was helping me rise to the challenge and today was spent with a trip to the Er followed by at least a 24hr hospital stay for Gideon due to him having difficult breathing. Given Gideon’s extensive medical history we don’t mess around and I’m so glad we didn’t this time. He’s responded really well to the extra respiratory treatments and doing so much better than last night, but the doctors wanting to keep a close watch on him for a bit is fine by me. His strength, resilience, and warrior-ness never cease to amaze me! Thanks to all of you who have been praying already, we’ll take more prayers for a quick release! 😉 And to those of you who’ve helped or offered to help we sincerely appreciate it all, from the bottom of our hearts. Our community near and far is always so quick to rally around Gideon and our family and it always just blows me away in the best kind of way. So much love for you all! For now I’ll stick to walking the hospital stairs on my coffee breaks and lunging by his bedside and then when I get home it’ll be back to this step and working on my #Transform20 transformation! #gideonmightywarrior#mywhy . . . . . . . . . . . #transform20testgroup#iamteambeachbody#motherhoodunplugged#marinewife#militarywife#momsofinstagram#fitmom#strongmom#wahm#lifebydesign#transformation#strongisbeautiful#strongnotskinny#strongmom#warriorbaby#preemiebaby#preemiemom#pprom#nicubaby#picubaby#miraclebaby
Holy moly today was a full day and I think my head is spinning! I pretty much spent the entire day working on me #rachelhollisxlifecoaching and my Beautycounter business #rachelhollisxbusinesscoaching with @msrachelhollis and I’m so inspired and excited for this year ahead. I know this is MY year for amazing things and freedom in all areas of life! Who else joined in on Rachel’s coaching sessions?

Character is everything. 🦄 It’s who you are when no one is looking. When no one is around. Character can change reputation, but reputation can’t change your character. Always focus on who you are. When you love who you are, who they think you are becomes irrelevant. Let them think whatever they think. Live and let live. 🥂💗 #thebfflife®

As I was lazily drinking my coffee this morning at 9am and researching worms for my composter, I stopped for a second and watched Grey play with his cars and realized how lucky I am to be able to stay at home with him. We definitely live in a dual income society, and with me staying at home I can use all the help I can get. It is 2019 and if you aren’t making a residual income from your phone in your free time, then maybe you should consider it. Starter kits are half off until the end of the month.

All reasonable offers today! Always so grateful for those! Also, apparently vintage handbags are HOT. I had these two listed for just a day each and received numerous offers in 24 hours. I had no clue how they’d do when I sourced them. Both treasures were discovered at two separate yards sales. Resellers, if you do not have the yard sale app you NEED it. It helps me map out my Saturdays mornings and is probably my favorite form of thrifting ☺️ #happygirl
“Managing is about coping with complexity. Leadership is about coping with change.” ~ Harvard Business School Professor John Kotter (2001) At the moment, I am managing my life and disability. As treatment progresses, my goal will be to become a leader in my field, a leader in my family, and a leader down a path of transparency to recovery for survivors of trauma like me. We are not alone.

Mommin during the day .. so I can chill at night. And because #ilovesleep Bring it on. My mind is racing with a million things to do but 3 am will come early.
LOVE day is right around the corner!! Who celebrates Valentine’s Day?! My husband and I really don’t. 🤷🏻♀️ He DOES grab little things for the girls though and that makes my heart so happy. It’s so sweet. Such a good daddy!! #loveisintheair#loved#loveday#lovedecor#cozyhome
This is funny, right #homeschoolers#? But seriously, I’ve been trying to wrap my head around getting rid of books for years and the thought simply does not spark joy. Although, I did go through my homeschool curriculum last year and got rid of quite a bit of that. There’s more in there I’d be happy to get rid of. Science and math bring me no joy. Literature, however, fills me with joy. There is some curriculum I should get rid of but I simply haven’t been able to yet because they are literature based, which brings me joy. As we prepare to renovate our kitchen and floors due to water damage, I’m planning on decluttering as we move things. Books has come to mind again and I feel like I’m ready to release a few, but probably not many. I definitely don’t see us getting down to 30.
I had someone say to me a couple weeks ago, I heard you are taking time off working to be a stay home mom. I said not exactly, I’m at work at home and stay at home mom now. She said oh that’s nice. Like it’s just a hobby not a real job. But that’s okay, not everyone gets what I do, not everyone cares what I do. I do know this job, this business has changed my whole life and my families life. I went from barely surviving life to truly living it. We went from having to leave our home so we don’t lose it to living in our dream house. We went from struggling to pay for groceries to having money in our savings. We went from never travelling to taking 1-2 trips a year. Last year it was Mexico, March we are off to Mexico and I just got word today I qualified for a trip to Punta Cana next March. You can watch me or you can join me! Coach sneak coming up soon. I can teach you how to build your dream life too. Application form is in the comments..

Why do I do what I do?? Them. They make my world. Every part. I can’t do without them. I do what I do so we can go out to breakfast and not touch any money that should be paying bills. So I can be here when they need me to be home when they’re sick. So we can go have fun when we want to. Plus I get to do it with amazing women. I’m so thankful for @lularoe.#mywhy#wahm#momlife#lularoeamandaborrelli#familyisthebest#mytribe#amazingwomen
Celebrate ALL the wins. Daily. . Have you ever thought “I’ll be happy when...” or “I’ll be successful when..?” . Truth be told, I’m still learning not to think that way! I’m choosing to celebrate the wins, big and small. . When you take a look at what it is you want, ask yourself what it’s going to take to get there. What will the version of you who already has it be like, what will her/his routine be, what will their habits be? . Then choose what you can do today to be more like the version of yourself who has the life you want. . Then celebrate!! Be grateful because if you’re taking action toward your goals. Reward yourself and feel gratitude. . @xxluciejxx and I are currently doing a challenge and when it’s complete at the end of the month we are rewarding ourselves and celebrating by heading to a cute boutique shop that I’ve been dying to go to for 4 years!!! . What’s your fav way to celebrate?
All Because Two People Swiped Right ❤️❤️❤️ This cutie is heading to Virginia. 🌺❤️🌺 #swiperight#tinder

Ahh.. we have hit the stage.. Braces. Does your kids have braces? Looks like my Anna banana will be spirting the brace face in 6ish months... Can I just say, man have they changed things (for the better) since I had them so so long ago. Normal kid, she’s excited and slightly nervous. But can I tell you, I was so nervous about the cost... like seriously, I’ve heard horror stories Then she gave me the estimate and I was relieved.. I can do this. My paycheck from coaching can pay for her braces, no problem! What a relief!! Seriously ya’ll what could a couple hundred dollars a month do for you?

Do you have trouble sleeping? This is my nighttime diffuser blend tonight. Serenity helps shut my brain off and keep me asleep. I love this using this as an alternative to Lavender or even with Lavender for sleep (it’s great for anxiety too!). Aaaand you can also get it free this month if you get started with oils!!
