Why hello there, mamas of #Mamalode. ✨ I'm @emilycretella, founder of @MotherHustle — a online community and publication for creative mompreneurs (mom who run, or dream about running, a creative business.) ✨ I'm also a content marketing strategist + copywriter, a business owner (cursivecontent .com), and a mama to two fiery little ladies, ages 7 and 5. ✨ I am so excited to be bringing you a glimpse at my crazy #motherhustle today — so stick with me here and in mamalode's Insta Stories. You'll see me running my business while prepping for vacation (woohoo, #springbreak!) AND coordinating an arts and craft project for my kindergartener's class. ✨ It's going to be a crazy one! Glad you're helping me get through it. (📷: @kristynmillerphotography) #mymotherhustle
Since we're hanging out all day, I'd love to know more about you mamas! What do you wish you had more of in your #mamalode life today? Pick your emoji — or choose your own — and add it below! We're in this together today! ~ Xo @emilycretella / @motherhustle … 👭 = community 💸 = business ⏰ = time/energy 🤗 = support 🎨 = creativity 🦄 = confidence 💋= self care/"me" time 💕= love❓ = something else!
It's true. I've seen it. ✨ SO. I know we're hanging out through the screen today, but just want to put this reminder out there … mamas, don't let the shiny objects + numbers distract you. Focus on what makes you fulfilled in real life, away from the screen. Judge your success on those terms. ✨ XO ~ @emilycretella / @motherhustle #mymotherhustle
"If I'm going to be spending time away from my kids, I better be spending it on something that fulfills me." ✨ On @motherhustle, we talk a lot about redefining our success and finding what fulfills us — as mothers, as individuals, and as entrepreneurs. Because success is not a one-size-fits-all thing. I've now been in business for myself for almost seven years, and my idea of "success" has changed drastically over that time. ✨ So I'm curious to know: has motherhood made an impact on how you view success?

In my copywriting business, and over at @motherhustle, I think a lot about the pressure to grow. To launch. To be quick about progress. To make big moves and go for the gold and chase the dollar. ✨ And instead of being motivated by that message, it makes me exhausted. It makes me feel like I'm in a constant chase. Like I can't let my mind rest or relax because that's lazy and I'm missing out. ✨ So I'm rebelling. I'm embracing the opportunity to grow slow + steady. To follow an unknown path with excitement rather than trepidation. ✨ Because it doesn't all have to be done today, mama. Or tomorrow. Or this year. Consider this your permission to slow it down a notch. You with me, #mamalode mamas?? ✨ XO ~ @emilycretella #mymotherhustle
