Have you had those moments where you have to take a deep breath and trudge into your home, knowing it’s a warzone of disconnect and frustration? Have you caught yourself having more “bad mommy” moments than good ones, snapping at and criticizing your family? Do you feel constantly pulled in every direction and frustrated with the constant demands and neediness of young children?
Living with one person and jiving all the time is hard enough. Add in a family with young kids just figuring out the world and you have a recipe for a quick downhill disaster. If everyone is fighting for their place and unable to recognize personality differences for their strengths, “home” can bring forth some pretty mixed feelings. Home may be the house you enter into, but do you have a home that makes you truly happy?
What if you learned how to put the “om” into hOMe…to foster relationships and an environment that gives you a sense of peace, happiness and comfort when you think of family, and what your true home is?
This is where I come in. I work with Mamas first and foremost. Motherhood is a tough job – extremely draining and extremely rewarding. It can be overwhelming and hard to manage alone. Sometimes, even when you are married, it can feel like parenting is a solitary responsibility. I help mamas clear the clutter from their home, their head, and their heart. I start by getting to the root of it all: understanding who you are and how you tick.
Once you understand your own hills and valleys (and how to focus in on your strengths and motivate/encourage others to do the same), you can truly BE the good and SEE the good.
On the business side, for the past 12 years I have run my father Dan Miller’s business, www.48Days.com. Through this I have worked in and managed: customer service, shipping and fulfillment, marketing, web design, product development and design, social media, graphics, and worked side-by-side with my father leading Coaching with Excellence and coaching coaches on how to build their own coaching businesses. My forte is specifically in the area of personality styles and utilizing the DISC profile reports.
After spending years helping other coaches build their coaching businesses, it was time for me to launch my own – thus Mama Says Namaste was born! I’d spend so much time after work events with 48 Days taking couples to the side to talk with them about their profile graphs and how to navigate the waters of marriage in an entrepreneurial household, and I found that I truly came alive when I was able to talk about marriage and family.
I address topics on communication, education, parenting, love/marriage, and powerful, authentic and connected relationships.
With my degrees in American Sign Language and Psychology, I have the background to not only work on the psychological aspect that comes from looking inward, but also to do some intense interpreting and mediating between the family.
I have been a “mama” to many over the past two decades, as I started nannying in my early teens. Once I became a parent, I learned what motherhood was really about – and I love talking with others about parenting styles, ways to encourage creativity and independence in your kids….and not lose yourself in the process.
So I talk to the mamas first – because, when mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
On top of the online business world, I love hot yoga and assist at a studio in town, make killer fudge, cover the whole family in henna designs, paint, I’m a certified Reiki Therapist, unschooling mother, and we’re gearing up as the family to do our next big adventure – Full Time RVing. 🙂
