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!

“Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread” by D Todd Christofferson: https://www.lds.org/broadcasts/article/ces-devotionals/2011/01/give-us-this-day-our-daily-bread?lang=eng
Danielle Porter and I have been friends for about six years, ever since I started working with the organization, Power of Moms. During that time, I have seen her go from a mother of three young children to a mother of six young children (her oldest is about eleven), and I have admired how fully she has committed herself to learning how to be the best mother she can be. Danielle is truly deliberate about every decision she makes in her home, and she has tried out many systems and strategies over the years. I benefit from hearing her advice as her family and her wisdom grows, and today she is going to share some of that with us on the podcast!
I asked her to teach us how to teach our children to work–and I was honestly surprised by her takeaways. But her words also resonated as truth in my heart and reminded me that a little love, patience, and perspective goes a long way. Listen to this wise mama’s words, and let me know what you think

When Whitney Archibald started working as a magazine editor after college, she naturally excelled in this leadership role. She effectively managed her team, created clear objectives for their work, and maintained focus and excellence in her responsibilities.
When she was pregnant with her third baby, she decided to start staying home full-time with her children–and one day she looked around her chaotic home and realized that she was not excelling in this “second career” in her life. Determined to make a change, she started putting as much commitment into learning how to manage her home as she had put into learning how to manage her responsibilities at work.
She discovered that many of the same strategies that she had applied in her business life could be applied in this new phase of her life–and today on the podcast she is sharing those strategies with us!
Listen in to find out how you can take small but meaningful steps towards “Momming Like a Boss” and managing your home and family more effectively and with more confidence.
