“Some people look forward to Friday. I look forward to every day because I’m doing what I love.” ~Jacqueline Miler
Jacqueline Miller is the mom of two sons, Founder of Jacqueline DuJour Enterprises, LLC, a two-time bestselling author, speaker, blogger, and a life coach.
When her children were younger Jacqueline admits that she believed that she couldn’t possibly pursue her dreams and be a great mom. After the sudden death of her husband in 2002, Jacqueline became “suddenly single” and so engrossed in being a single mother that she lost touch with herself.
In this episode Jacqueline shares her journey out of “the wilderness of her life” to MOGUL Mom, empowering women to pursue the life of their choosing.
Jacqueline’s Journey Back to Herself Began
Jacqueline became aware of her passion to work with moms during a conference she attended hosted by Lisa Nichols. It was during a conversation with Lisa that Jacqueline realized how passionate she was about helping moms not make the same mistakes that she’d made earlier in her life.
Jacqueline Cautions Moms to Take Care of their Health
Jacqueline recalled a time in her life when she neglected her health. She felt that she was too busy to care for herself, and later had some serious health scares. That was her wake-up call, but she doesn’t want other women to go through that. She encourages women, regardless of how busy they are with work and family, to make their health a top priority.
Jacqueline’s Biggest Regret
Her biggest regret was falling into the trap of believing that she couldn’t be a great mom and pursue her dreams. When Jacqueline’s boys left her home and she became an empty nester, she struggled with figuring out what was next for her. Now she coaches women and shows them how they can pursue their dreams while being attentive to the families. It’s totally doable!
