Self Esteem Challenge




Saturday, my husband and I became godparents for the first time. It was an extreme honor and I was humbled as we stood in church and agreed to accept shared responsibility in raising our little niece to be a good person. I loved sharing this day with my husband and got a renewed spirit from it all.

As I looked over the photos, I was reminded that I am still a little self conscious of my figure. Even though I know that my body was gracious enough to allow me to bring my boys into this world, I can't seem to get into shape fast enough. Having babies sure changes ones idea of a perfect body, does't it?

I have shared with you one of my self-esteem challenges. Please comment and tell me about one of your self-esteem challenges. Let's all support one another and remind ourselves that we are beautiful people, with our challenges and flaws being the main reason that we are all so uniquely beautiful!

Book Project Casting Call


My son and I love looking at the sunset every night from our yard. I am so lucky to live in a nice house, have a great family and have the opportunity to make a difference in the community. A few of you have heard that I have been busy brainstorming and writing a super secret book. I am writing to ask for your help. I need stories from teen moms, their grown children, their parents/guardians, their grandparents, their friends, etc. I am working on a book that will unmask the teen pregnancy myths and bring about a new understanding of why teens should wait to become parents and why adults need to do their part in helping those teens learn the skills they need to wait. Join me for a life changing event, as we return to innocence. Leave me your information here or send me an email (carmenalisarios@gmail.com). I can't wait to have the honor of working with you!

Thank you to Business in Blue Jeans, and Susan Baroncini-Moe

I have had a busy month of learning, doing and planning. We planted a huge garden and are tending to it daily. We have two new puppies and two new kitties. We had a huge two day party for Alex and Donovan's birthdays and our eighth wedding anniversary. Lots of stuff for me to do that has NOTHING to do with my business. :) So I have been ignoring my blog. Until today.

I noticed yesterday that I was left award and mention on septembermom's blog. I missed it and I sincerely thank her for recognizing me and my blog. Please take time to check her out, as she has a great blog.

Today, I had the pleasure of having Susan Baroncini-Moe of Business in Blue Jeans visit my page. I am looking forward to purchasing some of her awesome products and getting her e-zines in my box. She is a very interesting lady and has a beautiful family, as I learned on her facebook page.

I hope to work with her in the near future, so that my business can take flight. It is very motivating to find out that such fine, successful people, such as Susan, take time to read unknown blogs and are truly interested in helping out. Again, thanks to Susan, today, for motivating and rekindling my desire to move forward.

Sincerely,

Carmen

The MetroMom Summit Totally Rocked!!

Hello All,

I'm taking a break from my story-telling to give thanks and kudo's to a very special lady, Kim DeYoung, founder of metromom.com.

For two days, Kim was the hostess of a two day twenty-four hour live summit to help entrepreneurial women learn how to make the most out of their time and their business. The tips ranged from how to manage your family responsibilities so that you have more time for your business to how to find and delegate other responsibilities to a Virtual Assistant. She had many industry specialists as guest speakers and they should all be recognized and thanked as well. They all did a suburb job in giving out this valuable information.

Jennifer Haubein, Michele PW, Jennifer Odear, Caleb Scoville, Wendy Maynard, Alicia Forest, Amy Miyamoto, Nancy Marmolejo, Shannon Cherry, Ty Downing, Beth Schneider, Jennifer Haubein, Erin Blaskie, Debbye Cannon, Laura West, Victoria Colligan, Gina Bell and Traci Long.

Before this summit, I was struggling to make sense of my business goals and didn't have a clear vision. I had an "Aha" moment today during a call from her summit and I found clarity and vision. I just want to thank Kim and let others know that they should check out metromom.com and follow @TheMetroMom on Twitter. She has a wealth of knowledge and is very generous in her desire to help other women succeed in these times of uncertainty.

Thank you Kim DeYoung, for all of your hard work. I look forward to working with you more in the near future.

Sincerely,

Carmen
