036: Momming Like a Boss: Using Corporate Leadership Strategies in Our Homes // Whitney Archibald of ‘How She Moms’

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.

    I can’t remember if it was this episode or the next one (ps I loved both) but y’all were talking about whether or not to help your child clean when they ask and you suspect they just want you to do it. What I usually tell my son is once he cleans up the books in his room (just an example) then I will come help him clean the rest. This gets him going and I also don’t deny him help (because my kids also turn my phrases around on me at inconvenient times LOL).
