Meet the #motherhustlers: Kelly Morgan
Kelly Morgan is a Lifestyle Coach focusing on bringing clarity to emotional, mental, spiritual and physical clutter. She guides individuals and families on a journey to create more time and memories with friends and loved ones rather than devoting their precious moments to the weight of clutter.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I knew ever since I was little that I would be my own boss. I used to dig through my messy room and set up parts of it as though it was a store and I was the boutique owner. I knew I needed to clean my room but I got completely distracted in the idea of running a storefront and being a boss.
The leap that brought me to this was a comment my mom made. She said, “What do you need for yourself?” And that led me right back to my passion and the business idea I had all along! To help mother’s clear their emotional, mental, spiritual and physical clutter so they can find themselves again and enjoy the life they are working so hard for.
What struggles do you face when it comes to balancing your work and family and how do you deal with them?
The struggles I find the most are how to keep a flowing routine with constantly changing attitudes and needs of my family.
My oldest is 10, my middle will be 7 and I have a 7 month old baby. The ages are far enough apart that creates three different needs on the daily. Four If you include my husband who does rely on me for a lot too.
I find myself not breathing properly and my anxiety tends to get the best of me at times. Lately, my go-to to decompress is to focus and regulate my breathing. I also really enjoy listening to binaural beats that raise my frequency. Putting on fun music and dancing around allows me to let loose a bit and laugh which ALWAYS fixes and stress I have at the moment.
I will say that I am unconsciously controlling and I have had to tap into that to remind myself that is it okay to say yes when my husband offers to help instead of my usual response, “I’ll get it!” or “Ill do it!”
This was a tough one….to let go and trust it would work out even if I wasn’t the one cleaning, fixing, taking care of it.
What do you think is the secret to raising a healthy business and a healthy family?
I truly believe that involving your family is important. it can be in small ways but to show you value them and their opinion or view is awesome!
Also, when you are thriving and your business is thriving, your family will see the positive impact it has on you and it will trickle down through the family.
Working with a majority of moms, I know that their biggest struggle is keeping up with kid clutter. So I will talk to my own children about what organizing systems work for them and what they really don’t like. I will ask my husband how he feels when I switch up rooms and decor or ask his opinion on how he feels a home should be run. Learning from one another in a safe open conversation where no answer is judged or wrong is extremely beneficial.
What is one piece of advice you could give to help other fellow mompreneurs?
There will be days that you are tired and over it. You will question it all and wonder if it is worth it.
But then there will be even more days where you see the work you do and the impact it has on others and it will pull you to keep moving forward.
Start a business that means something to you and the world. That can sound like a huge feat but trust me! When you follow your gut and your heart, it will lead you to the right business.
Know that it won’t happen overnight and all of the obstacles you face are just helping you strengthen your skills and knowledge.
The biggest thing? YOU ARE NEVER ALONE! Surround yourself with happy, positive people who share your vision or morals or desire to make the world a better place and grow with one another.
What words of encouragement do you have for your fellow mompreneurs?
You are so insanely worthy of saying “YES!” to yourself. It’s okay to not know all the answers or how you will get to your goals. But if you have a vision and you have a goal, that’s all you need! The rest will fall into place as you go and the experience will be one you treasure! You CAN do this!
Do you have any great / inspiring stories from your own experience that you would like to share?
I looked at my own life and I imagined a hand reaching down and pulling me out of my clutter. I imagined what it would be like if those hands cleansed me of the emotional, mental and physical weight, and I felt so calm.
In that moment I knew I could be those hands for others. I have many stories after working with my clients over the years but I truly feel a sense of heartwarming compassion when a women calls me to tell me her marriage is better than ever or that her kids are excited to help her around the house or their workdays are better because they feel so appreciated all because their outlook shifted due to our sessions together.
These families and individuals inspire me everyday!
Any fun facts you want to share?
I love doing random acts of kindness anonymously and (if I’m lucky enough) to see the recipients face light up! It’s the best feeling in the world and I include my kids in it as much as possible!
