Don't Overthink Your Goals

Do you constantly second-guess yourself? Do you set a goal today and then by tomorrow you’re thinking, “Nah, I’m not going to do it”? If you do, you’re not alone! One of the biggest reasons we don’t achieve our goals, is because of overthinking. When you overthink too much, it brings about doubt and confusion, and eventually failure.

Staying Healthy As A Mompreneur

Being a mompreneur on top of being a mom is draining! That’s why mompreneurs especially need to take care of their health and wellbeing. When you work from home, you can fall into bad habits much easier, because you don’t have a boss and coworkers around to keep you from faltering.

Why I Started Muslima Network

Do you notice that as a Muslima blogger or Mompreneur you don’t have much support? Why are our fellow bloggers not offering the warmest welcome? I wondered this many times as I had one door after another slammed in my face when I was a newbie many years ago. I still see it happening till today, but now the reason is competition.
