Today's episode is something that all people who thinks of starting to homestead can relate. This is a relevant topic that most of us can get tips and tricks.

As how Danielle mentioned, anybody can start homesteading because homesteading is more of a lifestyle choice than it is. It's kind of more like a lifestyle or like a mental attitude more than anything else. 

If we think about it, homesteading, in large part is all about...

For today's episode, Bonnie and Danielle discussed about taking chances and getting outside of our comfort zones.

As an entrepreneur, we are a little bit up, we're wired a little bit differently than people who don't have that mindset. Partially because as an entrepreneur we tried to take on the world instead of just delegating tasks.

There's a lot of homesteaders that hold themselves back because they're not will...

For today's episode, Bonnie and Danielle talked about Silencing Your Inner Critic.

There are times that stress are all over the wrong places all the time and that controls our fight or flight response. It is where our brain will usually go to when we have anxiety and get overwhelmed and these negative thought processes continue.

Today's episode is really a good conversation.

We discussed how we can overcome our setbacks.

If we're talking about the setback itself, there's a lot of times that there are things that are outside of our control. Whether it be a health issue, or the economy or a job loss. And so a lot of times we just have to go, "Okay. This is this is my reality right now. This is the circumstance. Now, what do I do about it?"

Here we are with another episode! Today we talked about being prepared and what that looks like realistically.

It means focusing on the things that are more likely to occur. We can't foresee every possible scenario. It's more about just doing what we can with what we have and focusing on best case scenario playing or hope for the best plan for the worst. We can't really depend on the supply chain, necessarily, but at the...

In today's episode, we talked about The Reality of Life Balance

We grew in a generation where most of the tasks are assigned to women because men need to go out and work for the family. We grew up having this kind of mindset. As moms, we tend to think that we have to be martyrs. And we have to do everything ourselves.

Where in fact, men and women should be balanced in everything. Regardless of your differences, you all pull toge...
