Maternity Leave Recap with My COO Megan Schopieray

Y’all know that one of the most important pieces in my business, or any business that’s scaling and growing, is team. Truly, my COO Megan Schopieray has been an instrumental part of my business and success since nearly the beginning! If you’ve been wondering what it looked like behind the scenes during my maternity leave (or what it could look like to take extended leave in your business), I’ve got something exciting to share with you.

It’s so easy to think there’s no way to make what we want work when it comes to time off from the business. Most would say I have the LEAST ideal business model to take time off, and while that might be true, I was still able to spend nearly 4 glorious months off with Bennett and easily make it work- because of the planning that Megan and I did to make it happen. 

If you haven’t officially met Megan, she is the wind beneath my wings and makes sure all the day-to-day operations at A Lit Up Life run smoothly. In short, you’ll love her and there is NO ONE better to give all the details of my business while I was on leave, and to help you figure out what an extended leave could look like for you! 

I went live inside The Lit Up & Loaded Entrepreneur with Megan to share a BTS peek at what it’s been like at A Lit Up Life during my maternity leave. Find out what went well, what we weren’t expecting, and everything in between.

In this replay, you’ll hear:

  • How to dispel the fear and hesitation around taking time off in business (and how to create the space needed to do so with zero stress).
  • The #1 thing that allowed me to be so successful in taking an extended leave (and how it’s possible in ANY business model!)
  • One surprising shift that happened while I was away, and how it changed when I returned.
