I've always been a solution-oriented person, so nothing sticks in my craw quite like the fact that we discuss mom burn out constantly and yet have no real solutions to work through it. What if we worked to stop burn out before it happened? Is that even possible? I'm going to share my thoughts and the simple solutions I've found to move me away from…
 
You are deserving of all the self care in the world. You deserve to care for your needs, physical and otherwise. Something I discovered about myself recently was how often I use self care as a form of avoidance and ultimately self sabotage. How does that work? Because I wasn't focused on truly loving myself, but with using stereotypical self care a…
 
It's 2022 already. Happy New Year, mamas! This is my favorite time of year to decluttering, purge and start fresh, but to start? In honor of the new year, I'm giving you 22 things you get toss in right now in your home, in your schedule and in your life to make more room for what you want.By Kendra Hennessy
 
We're at that famous time of the year when we start thinking about all the new habits we're going to create in the next week or so, making the next year "bigger and better than ever" only to have those new habits get lost in a pile of past intentions by January 25. There is an easier way and it's what I call the tether method. It's not a new concep…
 
It's an absolute honor and privilege to introduce our podcast guest today, because not only is she a rockstar in the world of helping women live life with intention, she's also a supportive friend. Shunta Grant is the creator of the Best Today® Guide and founder of Best Today® , a company that creates resources to help women take control of her mos…
 
Raise your hand if mom life has had you feeling like you're stuck in a rut, like a car spinning its wheels and kicking up nothing but mud. You are not alone. You are in good company. You are not a bad mom. The very real monotony of life as a mom can have us feeling like we can't move forward, then guilty for feeling that way, then frustrated that w…
 
It's the most wonderful time of the year...until it's not because you've over-scheduled yourself, said yes to things you swore you wouldn't and now feel like it's going to be the most stressful time of year, again. What we need more of, ladies: boundaries! Let's talk about how to stick to holiday boundaries, whether they are with your family, your …
 
Journaling is a highly effective yet incredibly misunderstood practice. Most think it's like keeping a diary, having to memorialize every moment of our lives in writing. A journal is more than a memoir, it's an insight into our inner thoughts, most of which we don't know we have. Journaling has improved my life in ways I can't physically measure, b…
 
Are you an over-thinker? Do you overthink about how often you overthink? Do you do more thinking than doing, and then spend time thinking about how much you think, but don't do? Oh, the cycle! As someone who spend the majority of her life inside her head, I get this and I want to help the moms of the world stop thinking and start doing. Your plans …
 
Nothing is more difficult than an overcomplicated routine and I'm talking about for adults. Imagine how frustrating it is for a child. Routines are innately helpful for kids of all ages, but what if your children aren't sticking to them? Today, we're going to talk about my bite size method and why it works so well for kids. I'm giving you the simpl…
 
I have a confession to make: I am an excellent planner, but I really fall short on the follow through. I always said I would have made an incredible personal assistant or professional planner, because when it comes to figuring out the details and starting a project, I'm your girl. I just couldn't figure out why I wasn't following through, but now I…
 
Let's call it what it is: we've become overly obsessed with productivity. Do the things, do more, do it all. In an effort to move away from just being "busy" we've now swung the pendulum over to the other side, focusing on always needing to produce. Especially in motherhood, many of us equate our worth with how many checkmarks we see on a list at t…
 
Home organization has become way too complicated. There, I said it. From TV shows to billions of Pinterest search results to entire lines of products at Target, organization is now less about systems and more about flashiness. I'm pumping the brakes on all of it. Today, I'm going to give you 6 simple and highly effective ways to keep your house org…
 
This is by far one of the top 5 most commonly ask questions at Mother Like a Boss™ and I'm jumping in with both feet today. There is nothing more overwhelming than trying to get started...when you already feel overwhelmed. It's like an overwhelmed soup. I've got big value for you today, mindset shifts and practical tips to help you get started on a…
 
What if I told you that you could get more done without having to do more? "Sure, and maybe I could ride my magical unicorn to space while I'm at it." It's possible and easier than you think. We're a little obsessed with productivity in our society, but the key to getting more done is creating momentum and prioritizing the order in which you do thi…
 
Planning for the future can feel confusing, but planning to plan? That's just ridiculous, right? Wrong. Implementing planning time into your schedule, even 10 minutes at a time can be the difference between living out your priorities and reaching your goals, and always feeling like your 10 steps behind. Planning time is how we stay proactive rather…
 
Let's just name it and claim it: the last 18+ months has been anything but kind and gentle with us, especially in the motherhood community. Between lockdowns and health concerns and school being virtual, I've felt anything but my "best." Now, it's time to choose ourselves again, to get back to a place where we can set goals- even VISUALIZE our goal…
 
Feel like your house is bursting at the seams with toys, popsicle crafts and construction paper pictures? Tell me you have kids without telling me you have kids, right? There is a lot of sentimentality that goes into decluttering things like this and it also feels never ending, so today let's talk about simple solutions to getting rid of things so …
 
Sometimes I think socks are invisible and that I have magical sight because it seems that I'm the only one that notices them sitting on the couch. It's all fun and games until you realize you're frustrated, resentful and exhausted because you're the only one that seems to see the mess around you. How can you take work off your shoulders if you feel…
 
The pencils, glue sticks and aisles and aisles of binders have been out at Target since early July, but the time is here: it's back to school season. I love this time of year because it feels like mom new year. It's a fresh start. It's also a season of overwhelm, but does it have to feel that way? In today's episode, I'm going to talk about how to …
 
This is it. My oldest is now in high school and we've chosen to homeschool her. Actually, she chose it and we're all excited and nervous. With an 8 year old son still in public school, this is a new adventure for our entire family. In today's episode, I'm talking about our approach to homeschooling, how we're organizing our days and what we've lear…
 
Money isn't the only currency we have in this world. We also spend our time and energy, often on tasks with little to no ROI (return on investment.) Something that became glaringly obvious over the last 15 months is how unequal time and energy are. Just because we have the time doesn't mean we have the energy. Let's talk about how to save time AND …
 
Analysis paralysis is real and with research showing that we make upwards of 35,000 decisions EACH DAY, its no wonder making those decisions feels so difficult. This makes it even more important for us to show our children how to become good decision makers from the start, from trusting themselves to know what's right for them to understanding any …
 
We're on a new episode summer hiatus, but you can listen to our incredible "Best of" series this July. Cleaning your house shouldn't be a burden, plain and simple. Of all the tips and tricks I have for making house cleaning more enjoyable, this episode is quite literally 3 simple steps to make it easier right this moment. These are steps you can im…
 
We're on a new episode summer hiatus, but you can listen to our incredible "Best of" series this July. The way we run our home is so much more than the sum of it's parts. It's more than the cleaning, the cooking, the wiping butts and playing taxi driver to our kids. Much like any other social group, our home is built on the culture we create for it…
 
We're on a new episode summer hiatus, but you can listen to our incredible "Best of" series this July. This is a common one, mamas and it's worth an honest conversation. Living in a house you aren't super jazzed about can affect how you feel about your home overall. Our houses are dwellings, but our homes are a feeling. We carry them with us wherev…
 
We're on a new episode summer hiatus, but you can listen to our incredible "Best of" series this July. I'm going to say something that will immediately ruffles some feathers: there have been times in my 13 years as a mom that I've felt resentful of the life I'd created. I'm saying that out loud in the podcast today as a way to start the conversatio…
 
We're on a new episode summer hiatus, but you can listen to our incredible "Best of" series this July. Where my overachievers at? If you grew up getting praise when you did more, you're probably thinking that doing less is lazy. We've been conditioned by a world that tells us that more is better, because doing more is how we prove our worth. This i…
 
If I had a nickel for every time I came across another guru claiming to have discovered the most meaningful, useful morning routine that will help everyone in the world become as successful as an Amazon CEO, I'd be as rich as an Amazon CEO. The truth is that there is no such routine, because everyone's life is different. We're all coming at the day…
 
If it were possible and legal to marry an online organizing tool, Trello™ and I would be hitched by now. I've talked about it before and I won't stop because Trello has made my life infinitely easier, my life more management and my business highly organized. So what is it? It's a visual organization tool (think Pinterest and Post-Its had a baby) an…
 
One of the best decisions I ever made was to run my home like I run my business. It's allowed us to create systems and routines that suit everyone and keep us on track like a well-oiled machine. Being a CEO isn't about making all of the decisions, it's about making the right ones. You get to choose the type of household CEO you want to be and desig…
 
"I'll tell you when you're older." isn't a phrase we say in the Hennessy house. My husband and I are committed to having uncomfortable conversations with our children at every age (in age appropriate ways, of course.) It can be difficult to get over our own discomfort and lack of confidence, but what an amazing opportunity it is to have an open dia…
 
One of my favorite ways to stay productive is to think of my future self as a different person, someone worthy of success and peace. She is someone worthy of having things set up for her without extra and added stress. This idea of setting your future self (even if it's just the you in a few hours) is so freeing and can help build momentum in every…
 
No is a complete sentence. What a freeing statement. In theory, it sounds empowering, but what about the people pleasing need to provide a justification for every no we speak. You don't owe anyone a reason or a justification for your boundaries or your choices and today in a great day to start saying no without the need to explain why.…
 
Not every routine is made for every season. We know that motherhood is all about the ebbs and flows and just like nature, seasons come and go. This can make creating routines that stick feel more difficult. I want to uncomplicate the process of creating a seasonal routine that fits your life, whether it be a cleaning routine during the summer month…
 
The mother-daughter relationship is one with many facets and levels. As a mother to a daughter and a daughter to a mother, I know that there can be discomfort, tension and unhealed wounds in these relationships. I'm so excited to welcome Dr. Michelle Deering to the podcast to discuss these relationships and how we can learn from them as both mother…
 
There is no doubt that motherhood, no matter the season, often feels hard, plain and simple. There's nothing worse than feeling like you're failing all while someone else tells you how "easy" it can be. Instead of trying to make the situations (which are often out of my control) easier, I'm focusing on bringing ease to my approach. That means uncom…
 
We're in the second quarter of the year, a time when most of us realize that those new year's resolutions and goals have fallen by the wayside. It's ok and it happens to all of us. I want to help you create goals you can stick to, without the complication, long-term commitments or difficult methods. Today, let's talk about 3 simple ways to uncompli…
 
Raise your hand if you hate cleaning? I get it. Especially with busy mom lives, cleaning just seems like one more thing to do and a never-ending chore. You clean one room and another is getting messy. One of the pillars here at Mother Like a Boss is simplicity in all things home management. That includes cleaning. In today's episode, I'm giving the…
 
It's been said that comparison is the thief of joy and it couldn't be more true. Social media has made it easier than ever to gaze at the highlight reels that others post and cause us to compare ourselves constantly to them. However, comparison isn't always bad. When we use it as a form of inspiration, it can be joyous. The issue is when we compare…
 
No one gets where they are without taking a million small steps to be there. The same is true in motherhood, in business, working towards your goals, anything. Our children don't learn to run at full speed before they can crawl. Why? Because it's the small steps, the consistency, the learning and mistakes, and follow through where big leaps and ful…
 
Motherhood is such a beautiful gift, but let's be really honest, it can also be lonely. Really lonely. Moms deserve a support system. We deserve a group of other friends and family that cheer us on and encourage us. But where do we start? Let's talk about it. Don't forget to join the Small Steps Society™ waitlist here!…
 
If you're a perfectionist and you know it clap your hands...and a sea of noise erupts There is no shame in the perfectionist game, except when there is. The ego creates a world inside your mind when you should be able to do it all, or nothing at all (like O-Town would say) The problem is, we'll never be able to do it all meaning that the only optio…
 
My boldness is coming out in big ways today and I don't know that it will resonate with everyone. I making a statement here and now because in 2021, I've had enough of mom guilt. I've had enough of the way it makes us feel, the hoops it makes us jump through, the judgement is stabs at our souls. We deserve better than feeling guilty for just existi…
 
I get asked about chores a lot. What chores to give kids, at what ages to start, what to do when they don't do their chores, how to create better chore routines? The truth is, there is no one way that fits every household or lifestyle. What I have found is that when we approach delegation from a place of empowerment versus nagging, the results spea…
 
Yup, we've talked about this topic before and yup, there is another couple of episodes touching on this topic and yup we're talking about it again. It deserves an even deeper discussion because the power of creating momentum in your life versus waiting for motivation to hit you like a bolt of lightning can't be understated. We all want to know how …
 
Time to get organized! (side eye coming at me, I know) Organization has been widely misunderstood for years. You don’t get organized by buying cute baskets from Home Goods or buying the coolest label maker on the market, as much as we all wish that was the case. Organizing your life is all about simple systems that you can duplicate and replicate. …
 
Yup, homemaking still matters in 2021. It mattered last year, it mattered 100 years ago and it will matter 100 years from now (at least, I imagine it will.) Why? Homemaking is nothing more than a cultivation of what matters to you in your life. Because whether you're a mom that works a traditional 9-5, owns a business or stays home to raise her kid…
