Happy anniversary to the Moms with Dreams Show! I can’t believe it’s already been four years!

I feel like time has gone by so fast. So much has happened since I launched my show on May 18, 2015. When I made the decision to end my online radio show and start my podcast, I was clear on what I liked about podcasting – having flexibility to pre-record interviews, having my own platform to share my message, the freedom to call the shots and the ability to create a show that would live forever on Apple Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and other cool places where people can find me around the globe.

What I didn’t know was how much time and energy I would have to invest to launch my show and keep it going. The first year was tough running my podcast as a one-woman show. I spent a lot of time learning how to edit in Audacity and trying to find my rhythm as an interviewer and discover my voice as a podcaster.

Looking back, I realize how much I’ve grown over these past four years. I’ve gained new skills. I’ve met amazing women from all over the world and have made lifelong friends because of my podcast. I’m grateful for every tough lesson as it’s shaped me into the woman I am today.

In this episode, I share ten valuable lessons that I’ve learned as a podcaster. I hope that you’ll find value in these lessons and apply what fits in your life.

I also had fun recapping twenty of my favorite episodes. Honestly, the list was going to be much longer, but I had to cut it off in the interest of time.

If you enjoyed this list, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I am working on a project that’s a spinoff of the MWD show. I’m excited to share it with you, but it’s still too early to spill the beans. I’ll share more with you very soon.

As you listen, I hope you hear something that resonates and inspires you. I’d love to hear what you’re thinking. Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments below the show notes at http://ericablocker.com/147. You can also email me at: Erica@momswithdreams.com.

Thank you for keeping me inspired and helping to make the Moms with Dreams Show a success. I wouldn’t be here without you, and I am so grateful for your love and support. Thank you for listening, for sharing and leaving me reviews. I appreciate you and am honored to be on this journey with you. I look forward to many more years of podcasting and growing with you.

All My Best,

Erica

Abbey Ashley leads an online community of 25,000 virtual assistants. She started offering virtual assistant services in 2013 and was able to leave her full-time, corporate job while on maternity leave. She now teaches others how to start working as a work-from-home virtual assistant.

In this episode, Abbey shares how she got started as a virtual assistant, the benefits of becoming a virtual assistant, and the benefits of hiring one as a mompreneur.

During our conversation, Abbey talks about:

  • what a virtual assistant is
  • how moms can get started working from home and making money faster in this industry than many other types of home-based businesses
  • her take on Upwork, Fiverr and other outsourcing companies
  • the one thing that she did that made a MAJOR difference for her family and business
  • how to hire a VA to support your small business, and more

As we close out, I want you to be encouraged. It’s easy to get caught up in doing everything on your own when you’re building your business because you think that’s how it has to be. Then you discover that you don’t have to do it all by yourself. Resources and support are available if you’ll open your heart to receive. I hope that you heard something today that helps you as you continue to build your dreams.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and answer any questions you may have. Feel free to leave a comment below the show notes at http://ericablocker.com/146. You can also email me directly at: Erica@momswithdreams.com.

Until next time, reclaim YOUR dream. Do what YOU love. Make a difference!

Take care,

Erica

I had fun creating this episode! It’s unlike any other episode that I’ve ever done here on the podcast. It’s my first time ever being so candid and free without a specific topic or focus.

I guess you can say it’s my own version of a mini variety show. Episode 145 is a mix between free style, real talk, candid Q & A, and my thoughts.

You’ll hear me talk about:

  • my relationship with my podcast
  • why I’m a big fan of taking breaks and social media sabbaticals
  • the dilemma with my kids and their phone addiction
  • how I helped a co-worker overcome his social media addiction
  • how I manage to do all that I do as a single mom with a full-time career and more.

I hope you hear something that resonates and adds value to your life in some way. If you have a question that you’d like me to answer in a future episode like this, please let me know. You can either leave a comment at http://ericablocker.com/145 or email me directly at: Erica@momswithdreams.com. I can’t wait to hear from you.

Until next time, reclaim YOUR dream. Do what YOU love and make a difference.

Take care,

Erica
