Are You the Reason for Your Struggles

Let's be honest. Are you causing the problems in your own life? We often place blame and look externally for the reasons we are not achieving what we want in our professional and personal lives, but we often set ourselves up for failure. Patterns of behavior that we are not even aware of often cause our own demise.

Dealing with Ambiguous Loss Ep 45

We have all experienced loss through our lives, but it can sometimes be hard to put our fingers on what we have actually loss. This does not mean that you have not lost something, nor does it mean that your loss is not as important as someone elses. Some losses are obvious, like the loss I have experienced through the loss of my husband. The pain and grief I feel is understanding to everyone. Ambiguous loss occurs when there is no clear loss or no closure. It is important to be positive and stay focused on the future. It's important to feel the feelings.

Leading a Team through Tough Times Ep. 26

We are 16 weeks into the Covid 19 crisis. Tensions are very high around all around the world. People are tired and overwhelmed. So how do you lead a team that is stressed and tired through troubling times? In this episode I talk about the steps I am taking to help my team through this time of crisis. It is very easy for us to get caught up in our own troubles right now. If we don't pay close attention to the pressure our teams are under, we run the risk of losing them. The teams that make up our preschools and child care centers are too important to ignore. We must find ways to ease their burdens.

Creating a Culture of Equality and Kindness within our Preschools Ep. 24

My vision for ECE has always been for ALL children to get equal access to high quality care and education during their first 5 years of life. Although my mother immigrated to the U.S. from Honduras as a young woman, I have lived a privileged life.  From early on in my ECE career I saw children being treated differently due to their socioeconomic status. This was one of the reasons I became a child care center owner. A child's race or families income should NOT be the determining factor for what kind of ECE program the child can get into.  We can do our part in helping children grow up to be accepting and kind to all people regardless of their race, economic status, health or based on any disabilities they may have. We can also help educate parents on how to achieve this. Join the conversation on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/childcarebusinesscoach/Follow me on Instagram: @thechildcarebusinesscoachYou can find more about me here: www.childcarebusinessprofessionals.com

Staying Productive During Crisis Ep. 18

Find the Blessings It is so easy for us to focus on the overwhelm. We must be intentional and look at the blessings that are still around us. Look beyond your current situation at the big picture. Look to your family, friends, even your pets, you will find blessings somewhere. Celebrate the wins. It can feel weird and out of place to celebrate your wins during stressful times, but it’s important for us to focus on the positive.  Stay focusedDuring stressful times, it can be very hard to stay focused. Look at the things that distract you or keep you focused on issues that are not productive such as social media and the news. Limit your time on activities that are not productive. Get Structured If you are closed, create a list of all the things you have been wanting to do, but don’t have the time normally. Prioritize the list on what will produce he most value. If you are open, create a list of essential items that need to be completed and prioritize them.  Create a weekly and daily schedule for yourself. Start with your priority and most valuable items and schedule them in first.  Don’t Pull Back  It is important to make sure to keep the lines of communication open with your families. Whether your open or closed, you are probably missing a lot of families. Stay in their radar by posting on social media, sending emails or making phone calls.  Now is a great time for you to solidify your branding and build a strong relationship with your families.  Here are the books that I refer to in this episode.
