In this stage of my life, I start most days to the sound of my children calling for me or running into my room. Before that, I started the day with the sound of my alarm clock signaling I needed to hurry as fast as I possibly could to get ready for work. This often sets the pace to go from one thing to the next in a frazzled state when I am constantly craving slow.
Crystal Paine, entrepreneur, mom, and founder of Money Saving Mom, is often asked how she does what she does, and it all comes down to starting her day with intention.
Crystal has years of experience encouraging women to be intentional when it comes to finance, family, and business. In this episode, she encourages us to develop the habit of serving our tomorrow self by first asking the question: What can you do the night before to set yourself up for success the next day?
Whether you have an intentional morning routine or hopes for developing one, we can’t wait to hear how you like this episode.

I want to meet you in Twin Falls! I’m teaching “Declutter Your Motherhood,” a 5-hour workshop on Saturday, February 9th. You can find more details here: 3in30podcast.com/workshops
As moms, we often wrestle with the desire to better balance work and motherhood. We want to honor our professional lives and personal development, while also giving our children the love and care they deserve.
Bu what if it isn’t really about “balance” after all? Crystalee Beck, co-founder of The Mama Ladder, is here to shift our perspectives by teaching us that both work and motherhood are valuable parts of living our purpose. We can find ways to protect time for both so we can be “powerfully present” in whatever we are doing.

In the busiest seasons of motherhood, it can feel like we have NO time for our own goals and personal development. This week’s guest, Mary Jenkins, has some advice for how we can fit it in! Mary is a mother of two, a social media marketer, and a graduate student. She is passionate about self development and making it manageable for busy mothers. Don’t miss her “3 Ps” of personal development for mamas (and we actually add a 4th as we talk during the episode)!
