What’s New at MWDU?
Happy New Year! Are you ready to take over the world?
After taking time off to refresh and plan for 2017, I’m ready to execute some of my big goals for this year. One of which is relaunching this website and offering new courses to help passionate women and moms like you pursue their goals and dreams.
Back in 2014, I launched Moms With Dreams University (MWDU) so I could teach women how to achieve more in their personal and professional lives. We had a pretty successful launch, but it didn’t live up to my expectations. I put in a lot of time, a lot of work, energy, and invested a lot of money for website development, marketing, and coaching. I even hosted a live event. I did everything I was supposed to do and thought I would fill each course and potentially have waiting lists.
Nope. That didn’t happen.
Don’t get me wrong – students enrolled and they had a great experience at MWDU. But at the end of the day, I was a little sad to see how much effort I put in for the return after it was all said and done.
Instead of jumping back in to “fail again”, I stepped away from MWDU. I needed to figure out if this was truly my passion or if I had bought into it and tried to convince myself that I was passionate about teaching and empowering women.
One thing that I’ve learned and know for sure is that your dream will never die, AND it will keep coming back to haunt you if you ignore it. You can hear more about this realization about our dreams in episode 75 of the Moms With Dreams podcast.
I knew that my dream was real, but I didn’t want to make the same mistakes because that would be silly, right?
So I went back to the drawing board to figure out what went wrong. I looked at what I did that worked, what didn’t work and why. What it boiled down to was that I simply did not know what I didn’t know.
Luckily, I’ve learned from my “mistakes” and have a better understanding of what it takes to have a successful online business. I was brand new at the time. Two and half years later, I have more experience and more confidence than I did when I started. This is great for you because it means that I have more lessons to share with you!
I’m SUPER-EXCITED to share these lessons with you! This is my passion and I’m truly looking forward to getting to helping you along your journey to your dreams.
You can look forward to fresh, weekly content loaded with tips, strategies and inspiration to give you what you need to achieve your big goals and dreams this year.
The website design will be changing soon as part of my relaunch. However, I still want you to visit weekly and read new articles as I write them. If you prefer to have content delivered to your inbox, please subscribe to this site either on the home page or in the box to the right.
I want to hear from you, too! If there’s something you want me to discuss or a topic you want to learn, either in a course or here on the blog, let me know. You can leave a comment below or email me at Erica@momswithdreams.com.
Did I already tell you that I’m soooo EXCITED??!!!
You can read the first new article about growth, written by guest blogger, Aundrea T. Harris, MA, CLC, CPC. In this article, Aundrea helps you understand what growth is and how we should aim for it in our lives.
That’s it for now!
I hope you enjoy the new MWDU. I look forward to helping you reclaim your dreams, do what you love and make a difference!
