Meet the #motherhustlers: Samantha Goldsmith
Sam Goldsmith is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur,
Tell us about yourself, your business, and how you got started!
I am a 38-year-old mum of a soon to be
I am a mompreneur running a melting pot of businesses all focused on helping women (myself included) choose the path of least resistance and become wildly successful in whatever way makes their heart sing.
I help women create their own unique business models and charities and not for profits create sustainable funding models not reliant on fundraising or donations.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I worked for many years as a critical care nurse, nurses educator, and university lecturer, these roles allowed me to travel and live all around the world with my daughter but they often caused me to compromise my values, push my inner knowing to the side and on many occasions force me to be part of what I believe to be a massive failure occurring in our healthcare systems.
None of that was aligned with the vision that I held in my heart for the way I wanted to live and the difference I am here to make so I spent 15 years hustling with all kinds of side and part-time businesses until I couldn’t make up any more reasons or find any more justifications to continue to slog it out working up to 18 hrs a day in jobs and my own projects while feeling called constantly to back myself full time . The universe dealt me some cards that were pretty damn clear and I held my breath and let everything that didn’t serve me or set my heart on fire go and I haven’t looked back.
What struggles do you face when it comes to balancing your work and family and how do you deal with them?
When my daughter was a baby I was usually working
I feel like I am so lucky now my business affords me time to drive my daughter to university, to take the day off and just be with her, to travel widely and work from wherever I am and I feel like it is another wonderful time of her life that we can share.
I struggled a lot with friends and families opinions and judgments about what I should and shouldn’t do with her and our lives. It used to worry me a lot and cause a lot of tension but now, because I am committed to listening to my own heart first, I know that all of my decisions are what’s right for us and I don’t get upset. I allow others to be on their journey and adjust only when it’s out of alignment with our family.
What is one piece of advice you could give to help other mompreneurs out?
Listen to your intuition and stay in your own lane.
As long as you are listening to your inner guidance and let that guide your decisions and your actions you can’t go wrong.
I bet you can remember a time when you think you followed your heart and it all went pear shaped but look a little deeper and I bet your gut was telling you the truth but you just didn’t listen.
What words of encouragement do you have for your fellow mompreneurs?
Women are where it’s at now! You are here to make a difference and you know it, don’t let anyone dim your light and surrender as much as you can to the inherent creative feminine energy that flows through you. We need what you are here to share!
Do you have any
great / inspiring stories from your own experience that you would like to share?
I believe that the path of least resistance is the way and fine tuning our intuition is the key to unlock everything we want in our lives.
But I 1000% believe that when it comes to this we mompreneurs can be our own worst enemy. We can be stuck in struggle, wear busy like a badge, and think that anything good only comes from hard work. Therapeutic grade essential oils are my secret weapon. They release the struggle, take over the energy work, and give our tired asses a hard earned break.
We don’t need to perfect, we don’t need to have everything all figured out. We can jump in head first and we can also jump out and raise our head high because we changed our minds or our hearts weren’t in it. And at every step, we can take refuge in a pointe plant potion that dissolves it all
I half-jokingly (actually 1/8 jokingly) call myself a hope dealer, and not just because it is my main
We are bringing H.O.P.E — we are…
H — Helping
O — Open
P — People’s
E — Eyes
And that my friend is the biggest and highest service I can offer to myself, to anyone and to our whole planet.
We open peoples eyes to the plants that are here to heal us. We open peoples eyes to the struggles of our fellow brothers and sisters in far-off lands. We open peoples eyes to the atrocities that are unfolding around our world and the most vulnerable people that feel their effect. And my friend we open people’s eyes to financial freedom, to a whole new perspective on how our lives can be of service. And our money, just like our efforts, our hearts, and our minds can be used to make magic happen
Plus we get to bliss out on plant potions all day every day! Winning!!!
Any fun facts you want to share?
Whenever I feel stuck, stagnant, or manifesting something I declutter like a #motherhustler!
