“Don’t follow your passion, follow your gift.”
In this episode of the Unpolished Journey, we talk with Dana Malstaff, the CEO and founder of Boss Mom. Dana is a mother, author, business strategist, podcaster, blind spot reducer, and movement maker. She is the author of Boss Mom: The Ultimate Guide to Raising a Business & Nurturing Your Family Like a Pro. Dana has over 20k students in various courses and community that is over 30K strong. With over 10 years of experience in content creation, marketing, sales, community building, and business strategy, Dana grew the Boss Mom brand into a six-figure business in less than a year. Her Boss Mom Movement is all about losing the guilt when it comes to raising babies and businesses at the same time, and believes that pursuing our passions and building our dreams while including our children in the process, is the best way to build thriving businesses and families.
Dana talks to us about some rarely shared stories from her entrepreneurial journey in a refreshingly honest and authentic way. The conversation was so good in fact, that we decided to split it into two episode so you can really sink into the nuggets of wisdom she shared. In this first part, you’ll hear about:
- The origin story for how her successful business came to be
- Mom guilt and why it’s OK to want to build your own business
- Lessons you can learn from seemingly random jobs in the corporate world
- The importance of understanding your business feng shui
- Why the idea of following a sewing pattern is critical to understanding how to learn from people and programs you purchase
- The importance of telling the universe what you want and letting it unfold for you
- And more!
