A new interview in the Mommin' It Business Series is here! Featuring mom owned businesses that support pregnant and new moms.
Today I’m speaking with Lulu Lincoln, owner of Teaching Mums, Ltd. Lulu provides support, coaching, and resources to mothers through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Her motto of "Each Mum, Teach Mum, Reach Mum "alone shows her desire to reach every mother through every part of their journey. Her main purpose is to fill each mother with confidence and support to create balance in business, motherhood, and connection.
Tell us about your business? And how do you help expecting or new moms?
I offer Professional 1:1 Coaching for mothers and I focus on motherhood, business, and education. I am passionate about connecting mums (expectant incl.) with their purpose and passion, whilst still enjoying being a full-time mum. For some mothers this could be returning to work or staying at home and building an income around that. Some mums want to upskill and retrain. This is where I come in. My coaching sessions help mothers to understand how to manage their priorities without negatively impacting their commitment to their homes. I offer resources and support...I work with each family until they no longer need me...then I know my job is done.
What makes you unique as a mom & business owner?
I am a qualified teacher, coach and pregnancy counselor, as well as a mum, so my business is evidence and experience based. More than a third of mothers are having to give up work because of the cost of childcare. It is a privilege to be able to care for your family, but support has to be provided for mothers that would like the best of both worlds.
What's the hardest part of running your business and being a mom?
Time management, juggling priorities (well) - that's why I have created resources that work, but do not overwhelm.
What is one "messy" thing about being a mom/biz owner that you would never share in public?
The short-comings of my husband or children. I don't mind sharing my own, but not theirs, it's just not fair.
What's your favorite thing about being a mom/biz owner?
My favorite thing about being a mom/biz owner is being able to serve my family each (with joy) and help other families, via online resources, tools and apps.
What advice and words of encouragement would you give to expecting or new moms?
The best piece of advice that I was NEVER given is to be kind to yourself... your body, sleep as often as possible, journal, speak out loud about your desires, dreams, and issues. You are loved and powerful. This power is not stolen by our children, but it increases as we adapt to having a brand-new life. There will be difficult days, but nothing compares to the joy you will feel when your child arrives, says your name, says thank you, I love you…the list is endless. My point is the good days do eventually outweigh the bad days. Decide before it gets tricky that you will never give up.
How has motherhood changed you?
Yes, I was so selfish before I became a mother. It has completely humbled me and made me grateful for everything that I have. I take it a day at a time. I live by my values, to the best of my ability, and teach my family to do the same. What a gift!
What is one toy, item, product, book, resource, podcast that you would recommend to a new or expecting mom?
(1) A journal. (2) A soft toy for baby. (3)A breast pump (if you decide to breast feed). (4) A memory box for keepsakes.(5) Re:Vitalise Podcast. (6) Pregnancy Birth and Beyond. (7) The 6-Figure Mompreneur. (8) Teaching Mums Ltd time block weekly calendar.
