Hey y’all, I’m Nikki Winston, and welcome to The WERKin’ Mommas podcast. I’m a mompreneur, CPA, and award-winning writer with my career advice featured in your favorite magazines. I’m sharing the accounting tips entrepreneurs need to know, CPA exam study tips, and career advice that millennials need to win in these corporate streets. You’ll also hear the frolics and frustrations of a mother to 2 growing kids.

Let your network know that you’re listening to this episode by using the hashtag #WERKinMommas and tag me, @NikkWinstonCPA, on Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

It doesn’t matter who I ask: moms, CPA candidates, entrepreneurs, we all have some long-winded reason for not doing things as we think they should be done. Moms know we need to work out and we’ll go 2 weeks strong then fall off. Candidates know they need to be studying and they do good for a few days before all motivation is gone. Business owners need to hire an accountant but only do it when it’s too late.

How long are you doing to be consistently doing things inconsistently?! As crazy as it sounds - it’s a struggle too many of us can relate to. We do things - the right things - consistent for a few days, then we fall off, get back up, and keep going on this cycle.

Then you wonder why you’re not where you should be. In this time of uncertainty and wondering what the next move is gonna be, listen to this bonus episode of The WERKin’ Mommas podcast to (1) hear my personal goal of being more consistent and (2) how to create your own plan so that you’re not doing so much that you’re not really doing anything.

Hey y'all. Welcome to another episode of The WERKin' Mommas podcast. I'm Nikki Winston and so excited and glad to have you tuning in and rockin' with me today.

I'm here to talk about a PLETHORA of things - I am a Certified Public Accountant, a CPA exam instructor & coach, a writer, podcaster and owner of The Winston CPA Group. I also like to give career advice and share my experiences as a black woman/disruptive millennial working in corporate America while running my own businesses.

One of the things about my podcast is that it's very cathartic and therapeutic for me. So I don't edit my podcast; I want the organic emotion, the feeling, the moment to live through the episodes and I don't want to edit out something because I sip my water or clear my throat or one of my kids barges into my studio while I'm recording.

I'm excited to jump into today's episode. If you're tuning in for the first time, welcome, thank you for being here. If you're a regular listener: hey, hello, welcome back! Let you network know you're listening to this episode by using the hashtag #WERKinMommas also feel free to tag me @NikkWinstonCPA.

Ditch the "running on fumes" mentality. We're changing the definition of a working mom from overwhelmed and underappreciated to being celebrated and unapologetic for wanting it all - kids, a career, business owner, stay-at-home mom and whatever else she chooses!

We want to relieve Moms of errands & tasks that can be delegated so they can spend more time doing things they love.
