Mental Health: What are you doing to have a healthier mind?

Sep 07, 2021

This episode has been a long time coming friends.  

This week we're talking about mental health and given our cultural environment right now, COVID, everything that’s going on around the world, and all the other life challenges we get thrown at us; it’s more important than ever to make our mental health a priority. 

You hear society always talk about physical health when in reality, mental health is just as important if not more. 

After going through a year of lock-up and not knowing what the future may hold, the toll on our mental health as a country has skyrocketed. That’s why in this episode we wanted to share some proactive ways we can all hopefully use to cope and get back to feeling a sense of normalcy. 

Here’s a breakdown of what Eddie and I discussed… 

  • Talk about your feelings (10:51)
  • Get yourself moving to create energy (14:54)
  • Focus on fueling your body (20:33)
  • Rest and recover (28:10)
  • Do something you are good at...

Traveling to GREECE? Wanna ONE DAY go to Greece?

Then this is a MUST READ, full of lots of information to help you have a wonderful time, AND start your vacation with the right mindset.

I originally wrote THIS POST on April 7th 2021… It explains a little about how and why we decided to vacation in Greece. 


I had a little breakdown a few weeks ago.. 

We have all of our kids home with us for another 5 months, and then 2 will be gone, and off to college. And just like that, our family of 5 will shrink down to 3. (I’m gonna start crying again just typing this…) 

 We were planning on focusing on our backyard this year (landscaping, pool needs resurfacing, new patio/deck, etc.).. But when I realized with everyone’s hectic schedules and new changes were right around the corner, I thought: “What’s the MOST important thing to focus on this year, with such a big...

10 Things That Keep Business Owners STUCK!

Aug 31, 2021

It’s crazy to think how fast time flies… 

I woke up to a Facebook memory (thanks Facebook) from August 27th, 2020 when Eddie and I celebrated my retirement and the last day The Cake Mamas was in business. 

Being reminded of that day brought back so many memories. From building the business from nothing, to expanding it too two locations, to pivoting into coaching in 2017, to eventually retiring in 2020. 

It brought on a ton of emotions… but looking back, I’m so glad I made the decision I did. The reality is, my passion for baking and creating was gone. I found myself feeling full and excited when it came to coaching and serving others in the small business space. So that’s what I did. 

Once I retired from the bakery, I devoted my full-time to my coaching business with Eddie and now with over a thousand students and four years later, we’ve learned so much from them that we want to share with you. 

Here’s a breakdown...

Do you have a good relationship with money? 

This is a question that can be difficult to answer for some because they don’t even know what their relationships with money is like. 

They may be like me and Eddie back in 2005 when we were both bringing home six figures, overspending, and not saving. 

Or they might be hoarding their money with the fear that they’ll never have enough to cover the life they want to live. 

The reason we’re bringing this up is because your mindset around money is either propelling you or halting you in life.

Stick to One Thing or Master Several?

Jul 22, 2021


What level are you at in your business? What’s your goal when it comes to your business? And what’s going to result in the biggest return on your investment as far as time and money? 

These are all questions you should ask yourself BEFORE expanding what you offer in your business! 

If you’re working from home? 

Then you might want to limit your assortment. Why? For most home-bakers you’re likely still a one man/woman show, may be limited on space, and may not be fully committed to this new business! 

If you have a brick and mortar… 

Then you may want to consider having a menu with options to serve the needs of your community. 

Torn on which one suits you? Let’s talk Pro's & Con’s! 

Let me share my story just in case you're new here….

The Cake Mamas started off as a custom cake and cookie bakery. We wanted to focus specifically on the ART of decorating. We were inspired by The...
