Mompreneur is a movement that is steadily growing in the United States in order for moms to earn an extra income and express creativity while parenting one or more kids. As a matter of fact, the opportunities seem endless and the sky’s the limit; moms just need to find the right fit. I am blessed to have found Recess & Results because of its core principles of: faith, family, and fitness. What I didn’t realize at the time was not only did I find R&R, but R&R found me because it has taught me so much more than I could have imagined! It’s kind of ironic when I am an instructor, don’t you think? I have come to realize that R&R has actually taught me several key points but for simpliçity sake, I have narrowed it down to my top three.
1. I do not have to compromise my faith or my family to own a business. Recess & Results includes a wonderful community where our founders and other owners encourage God and family first as well as inspire, pray, and challenge each other to Grow In God in order for our businesses to flourish in His timing. This is the reason why R&R is not just any side G.I.G.!
2. Using my God-given gifts and talents to live out my passion is not a job. During a stage in my life, I took some time out from being a teacher to pursue other career options. Needless to say, deep down I knew God created me with a passion to teach kids. I now have the opportunity to fulfill my calling with a flexible schedule that meets my family’s needs. I can’t help but mention that I get paid to play! It’s so rewarding and such a blast that it doesn’t feel like work. Witnessing young children filled with enthusiasm and repeatedly asking to play “just one more round” doesn’t feel like a job. Doing my best to glorify God by using my talents, doesn’t feel like work. It’s a blessing!
3. I can dream BIG and make a difference in this world. I have learned to dream BIG by partnering with preschools, homeschool groups, and gyms. R&R has now inspired me to reach out to other families through play groups, birthday parties, and mommy and me groups. God willing, these dreams can become a reality! Recess & Results has a motto, “Saving the world one recess at a time.” I truly believe that I can live out this motto in my own community. This opportunity has taught me that I can make a difference physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually in a language called play with young children. To God be the glory!
