How do I find balance in 2020 when I legit feel like I'm being pulled in all directions? 😵
I’m being pulled by my side business, social media, online marketing, network marketing, being a mom, and being a wife.
So how do I fit it all in and where’s the balance? That’s what I’m going to be chatting about with you today.

📌PIN FOR LATER
Focus is a word that has driven me absolutely nuts for the longest time. 😣 I’ve always had a problem focusing.
I used to have “shiny penny syndrome”. I would get excited about an idea one minute, then the next minute I’d be onto something else. “Shiny penny syndrome” is just another way of saying you’re super distracted.
Sometimes I was juggling so many things that I could have shown up better as a mom. I felt I was sucking as a mom and a wife, and honestly all the way around😔.
This led me to go on a mission to find balance. I thought that there had to be an answer- some secret that I wasn’t being told.
I mean, in order for people to be super successful, they had to have an ish ton of balance right?
The goal is to avoid being all over the place, while still maintaining a sense of balance. So today I’m going to share with you three ways to get over “shiny penny syndrome.”
1. Byeeeee Distractions
First and foremost, get rid of distractions. The truth is that you’re never going to find balance in your overall life (that’s just not the way it works). BUT you can have balance ⚖️ in MOMENTS.
A quick way to that is getting rid of as many distractions as possible. For me, it was binge watching a certain show 📺.
Another example would be following a ton of gurus on social media and being given advice that was contradictory. It can be a confusing and distracting experience when on guru tells you one thing, while the other says something totally opposite. 🥴
2. Consistent Schedule
The second way is to create a schedule that is CONSISTENT. When you have nothing on the calendar, it’s easy to get “shiny penny syndrome”. Start by having a schedule for things like your social media, new clients, and when you’re planning on prospecting.
You can totally use my new favorite way to stay organized, Trello!

3. Accept your imperfections
The last thing I feel is super important is to accept the fact that you will never be perfect. There are going to be people who judge 👀 you as a mom.
There will be people who will tell you that it’s not going to work.
Here’s the deal.
I have some people in my family who don’t understand what I do. They respect it, but they don’t get it.🤷♀️
The truth is that 7 years ago, they didn’t respect what I did. I was okay with it and look where I am now. If I had listened to the few that told me not to follow my dreams, I would not be where I am today.
To sum it up in a nutshell:
1.) Get Rid of Distractions 👋:
Sit down, figure out what your distractions are, and let’s come up with a game plan. I got rid of distractions I didn’t need.
It freed up my time to be a better mom and allowed me to be more focused with my content. So get rid of anything that’s taking up unnecessary brain 🧠 space boo boo.
2.) Create a Consistent Schedule 📅:
If you don’t have time on your schedule for things (like social media, networking, self improvement, self care, being a mom and wife), I really want to challenge you to carve the time out for that and to make a calendar.
Get it written down and become a perfect appointment setter Heeler! ✅
3.) Accept That You Will Never Be Perfect:
Accept that sometimes you will be a hot mess express 😜. At the end of the day, the important thing is to just do you and do it as best you can. Don’t listen to the nay sayers either.
I didn’t listen to them and it got me where I am, as well as the 20,000 other humans I’ve impacted throughout my journey.
So avoid distractions and get consistent because otherwise you will get stuck.
Find the DMO (daily method of operation) for your business so you can scale it at the end of this year to double your income.
It all comes down to BELIEF. It comes down to belief in yourself and in the mission you have, The belief that you have a product or service that will benefit other humans. The belief that you’re going to provide solutions to other peoples’ problems.
I hope you found this information valuable for your business and I can’t wait to hear about your results!
Until next time Heeler,
Marina Simone xoxo
