I’m blown away by the ambition and focus of today’s guest for “5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur.” At just 25, she’s a mom to 2 and works on 3 entrepreneurial ventures from home. I’m tired just thinking about it. 😂

Ashton works from home as the Director of Marketing and Sales at Milrich Virtual Professionals and owns TJ Elite Contracting with her husband. She recently started Homegrown Momma to create a community for moms to cover all things motherhood. 

Ashton lives just outside St. Louis, Missouri. Her family is the definition of “on-the-go”. She and her 2 toddler boys often travel with her husband who plays competitive softball all over the US. When she is not working or traveling, she can be found surviving on coffee, in the gym, or going on daily outings with her boys. The love the local splash pad, story time, petting zoo, to a trampoline park

Check out more “5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur” weekly chats here…

You can listen to my conversation with Ashton at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?

For Milrich, I am the Director of Sales and Marketing. My role is to get the word out about how we help businesses. We assign virtual assistants of all specialties to large and small corporations.

I am a co-owner of TJ Elite with my husband. We do flooring installation services all throughout Missouri. My husband handles the man power while I do all things marketing, book keeping, and handling operations.

I chose to work in both roles as I have the flexibility working from home to spend time with my family. With our frequent traveling, I can work from anywhere. So this gives me a sense of responsibility outside of mom life, while also allowing me to put my degrees to use.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?

Productivity and time management. In all of my roles my greatest attribute is that I have developed a true sense for keeping organized and ensuring all tasks be completed on time, at a high quality level.

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?

Delegating. We all know that true leaders have an innate ability to delegate mundane tasks. But unfortunately I suffer from the “I can do all” or “superwoman” syndrome.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?

Give yourself time. You don’t have to be the best, and you don’t have to get there tomorrow, just breathe.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

Time blocking. I am a huge advocate for the pomodoro method. So I create time blocks of when certain tasks will be done.

Jenelle Augustin – 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Meet eCommerce entrepreneur and founder of Start Your Boutique Jenelle Augustin…

Subscribe & Listen on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts | Amazon Podcasts

I met Jenelle through the I Heart My Life Mastermind which we are both members. And let me tell you…Jenelle is an inspiring force. This girl puts the capital “A” in Action.

Jenelle Augustin is an eCommerce entrepreneur, business development coach, and founder of Start Your Boutique for the mom who wants to FINALLY start the online boutique of her dreams so she can work from home & make an income doing what she loves.

Jenelle lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband of 6 years and 3 year-old son. Along with spending time with her family, she is a lover of the color pink, learning more about faith and God’s grace, Shark Tank, and making money while she sleeps.

Check out more “5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur” weekly chats here…

You can listen to my conversation with Jenelle at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?

I help women start their online boutiques. I realized that newbies were making it waaay too difficult on themselves. My signature group coaching program Online Boutique Success provides a step by step system to confidently starting their dream business and getting customers so that they can be their own boss and have more time with the ones they love.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?

Able to pivot quickly. Always trying something out… not in the shiny object syndrome way but if it’s something that aligns with my goals I can implement quickly to see if it will work for me.

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?

Being more analytical. I’m just learning to look at the data and figure out what it all means.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?

I’d tell myself to be clear on who I want to serve and to create only ONE funnel to start out instead of driving myself crazy trying to do everything.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

Prioritize your to-do list. What is the most important thing that needs to get done to make you feel proud of yourself and like your day was productive. Do that… then relax and enjoy your family. It might often mean you’re working on/planning things further out in advance so you are not pulling overnighters. It might definitely mean hiring a VA to help with things that are necessary but small tasks that will help you save time.

It’s time for another “5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur”…Today I’m chatting Caitlin Strempel, an SEO and marketing consultant and founder of Rising Ranks Digital. I first met Caitlin at the I Heart My Life Life event in San Diego last January. And I’ve continued to watch her grow and flourish in our mastermind group.

You can listen to my chat with Caitlin at the link above. Or get an overview of her answers and connect with her below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it? 

I am the CEO of Rising Ranks, an SEO firm and also offer high level 1:1 marketing consulting and strategies. I LOVE analytics and consumer psychology and both of these hit that mark for me! There is a big need for really high quality and dependable SEO and digital marketing firms.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business? 

I can handle a really big workload and can work quickly and efficiently

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most? 

I need to work on self care <3 and team leadership.

Investing in yourself is not the same as spending money!

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time? 

Focus! Especially during quarantine. I time block my day and my entire family knows not to interrupt me during certain times. When I’m strict with that, I can get so much more done, which allows me to give my family my complete undivided attention when my work blocks are over. It’s taken a lot of practice, mindset on diligence on my part but bucketing out my days and not blurring the lines between work and family time has done wonders.

www.facebook.com/endeavorfinancialcoaching

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?


We help broke people break the paycheck to paycheck cycle and reach their money goals. Our clients learn how to handle money in order to build long term wealth. I chose to become a financial coach because we were living paycheck to paycheck. When we realized that it was possible to reach our goals, we wanted to share that knowledge with others.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?

I am good at creating a plan and executing it without too much procrastination.

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?


I am terrible at marketing, and sometimes let my business take over my personal life.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?


Don’t expect the clients to start rolling in the first time you send out an offer. Give yourself time and grace.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

Add family time to your schedule. It isn’t something you will get to when work is done, it is the most important work you will do. Add one thing every day that you can do as a family or one-on-one with a child. Even if it only takes 30 minutes, it will help your children feel loved, appreciated, and safe.

My greatest strength is my humor, teacher’s heart, and desire for personal growth and reflection.

Rose Lounsbury - Simplicity Coach - Business Savvy Mama Podcast

The area where I could grow most is in delegating and trusting others to help me.

You can always figure it out! Trust.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

Let go of the idea that you will ever find a perfect balance between home and work life. Embrace your life exactly as it is, as messy as it is, and find joy wherever you are. But on a practical note… Use time blocks and hire a babysitter!

Today we kick off our regular Thursday feature called “5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur.” As a two time mompreneur myself, I know it can feel like a lonely island. Like everyone else gets it or figured it out. But these episodes give you a peek behind the curtain of moms running a small business in many different fields with kids of all ages and varying years of experience. I hope it inspires you. And gives you a sense of camaraderie or that you are not alone.

We kick off with Laura McLean, owner and founder of Small Business Moms. She is a wife and mom to two boys, a dog, and two lizards. She is a minivan driver, coffee lover, and chaos coordinator. Laura’s passion to help other mom business owners to grow their businesses while raising a family. When not helping small business moms, she loves to be outdoors hiking, camping, fishing, and swimming with her family.

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most? 

Do self care and self development count – I tend to put myself last.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself? 

Delegate or hire as soon as you can so you can focus on your strengths and the things that help your business the most.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time? 

I most recently took email off my phone, as well as other apps and only check those on desktop on weekday mornings. It was very distracting from important work and family time.
