“The Things That Make You Unique May Be Your Biggest Gifts” Lisa Druxman
In this episode, Lisa shares how she began Stroller Strides during the first few months of being a first-time mom. Finding that she had so many questions and was also in need of a community of like-minded people, she decided to bring together 4 moms to workout and from that small beginning and an unexpected television opportunity, it turned from 4 to 40 participants overnight, and that was just the beginning.
Lisa discovered that she had tapped into a market that was not only needed in California but across the country. With heart and hustle, she quickly turned her one-woman show into a franchise Fit For Mom.
Lisa shares her thoughts on the power of community and how important it is to find your tribe during all stages of motherhood. We talk about the importance of sharing and showing the chaos as well as the good, as it is in struggles that true connection occurs.
During the conversation, we talk about the importance of delegating to others and surrounding yourself with people who can complement out strengths and step in to fill the gaps.We also discuss the balance (is there such a thing) of life and motherhood and Lisa shares strategies on how to create a life that allows you to go with the ebb and flow of the day to day.
Lisa shares her top tips for busy moms and gives advice on how to deal with overwhelm. She also shares her thoughts on the importance of reflecting versus goal setting. She also encourages us to prune what’s in our life so that you can carve out the extra time to do the things you love with the people you love.
