STARTUP PREGNANT MINI-BOOKS
The Pregnancy Reading List
SHORT, SWEET SUMMARIES OF ALL THE BOOKS SO YOU CAN TAKE NAPS. ALL THE NAPS.
I’ve read hundreds of pregnancy and parenting books, and I geek out and take notes. Here’s my take on the 50 books I loved the most—or the ones that are recommended the most—and whether or not you should add them to your library. If you have a friend, co-parent, or partner that you want to bring up to speed, this is a great place to start before you go crazy and buy all the books. (I mean, no judgment—that’s what I did.)
WORDS OF WISDOM FOR PREGNANCY, BIRTH, NEW MOTHERHOOD AND THE POSTPARTUM PERIOD.
We are living in a time when motherhood is far harder than it should be. For me, pregnancy felt equal parts overwhelming, disorienting, beautiful, and inspiring. This book is a collection of 40+ of my favorite affirmations to help you through the powerful, awe-inspiring, and often overwhelming journey that is the portal into parenthood.
Streamline Your Business
FOR BUSINESS OWNERS TIRED OF BEING TOLD TO ‘HUSTLE’ MORE—A STRATEGIC 3 PART PROCESS TO SIMPLIFY YOUR BUSINESS AND FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS
Everywhere I look, people are constantly telling me to hustle harder and work more as a way to make everything work. What if work is broken, and trying to do it all is a fallacy? When I approached my business and work with a new mindset—one of simplicity and focus, rather than panic and overwhelm—things started changing. This book is an antidote to the hustle mania, and an opportunity to do less in your business by focusing on only a few things at a time.
The Startup Mama Interviews
CANDID, REVEALING INSIGHTS ON WHAT PREGNANCY AND PARENTING WHILE RUNNING A BUSINESS IS REALLY LIKE.
I’ve interviewed dozens of parents, and in this collection, I take their quotes, wisdom, and experience—and expertise—and put them together into a book. Need the advice of other women? Here you go. Also, not all experiences are the same: so if you need to commiserate with someone who despised pregnancy, or find someone who loved pregnancy, you’ll hear a lot of different stories. Because women are so many different stories, and that’s all a part of it.
WORD-FOR-WORD SCRIPTS YOU CAN USE TO GET OUT OF ALMOST ANY SITUATION.
Ever have a sticky situation you don’t know how to get out of? From a nosy neighbor to a client that just won’t respect your boundaries, to a friend or family member who doesn’t seem to get it—I’ve got you covered. For years I’ve written out scripts for friends to earn more money, save time, and create space. Now it’s all going in this book.
