Some of you may see this episode title and think, “YES! I need this!” Others may think, “Not for me–I don’t have any intention of starting a business.”
But believe it or not, this episode is for ALL mamas. Because I think all of us want to involve our children in the passions that are important to us.
Today’s guest is Tonya Dalton of inkWELL Press. She is a powerhouse business woman and a loving wife and mother of two. She built several businesses from her home while her kids were young, and she has so many practical tips on how to do just that. Within her takeaways, she also talks about empowering our kids to contribute to the home, modeling for them how to have boundaries and work as a team, and teaching them how to plan ahead and use their time wisely.
I really think this episode has golden nuggets for EVERY mama, no matter what you do for work–take a listen and let me know if you agree!

Are you an adventuring family or a stay-at-home-and-get-stuff-done family? I sometimes fall into the latter category (I love my to-do lists!), but whenever I muster up the energy to take my children on an adventure, I never regret it. We seem to grow closer to each other and make more lasting memories when we discover the world together.
On today’s episode, Chamaine Wallenzein, the found of Wandering Families and a mother of five young children, gives us practical tips and tricks for how and why to adventure with our families.
And if you’re not a hiker or camper, don’t worry–this episode is still for you! Chamaine and I discuss how an adventure is any type of shared experience that is out of the ordinary–and you can totally tailor that according to your family culture!
Listen in to this wise and spunky mama, and be inspired to build in more opportunities for connection and memories with your family!

Great Quotes from the Episode
-“The natural world seems to invite and facilitate parent-child connection and sensitive interactions. Unplugging and taking a baby away from electronic distractions creates an opportunity for what is called ‘affective sharing’ – oohing and aahing together over the sun shining through the leaves of a big tree…feeling a soft spring rain or a light winter snowfall on your face.” Martha Farrell Erickson
-“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder…he [or she] needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share, rediscovering the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” Rachel Carson
