29: The 40% Rule

Does your role as a mompreneur bring you happiness?

In this episode, we’re talking about the science behind happiness and how it impacts your success as a mompreneur.

There are three components to your happiness. 50% is genetics, 10% is circumstances, and 40% is your thoughts and actions. That means that you have control over at least 40% of your happiness, and I’m teaching you how to learn and live in that 40%. I like to call this the 40% rule.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss:


  • The three components of happiness
  • Taking responsibility for the things you can control and letting go of what you can’t
  • Why we all bounce back from negative experiences differently
  • Taking control of your happiness
  • The power of expressing gratitude
  • Establishing the habit of expressing gratitude
  • How to find your 40%
  • Engaging with things that bring you joy


Let’s have fun as mompreneurs. Yes we run businesses and yes we have responsibilities as mothers, but we get to choose to have fun doing it. I hope this episode shows you how to have more fun and find more happiness every day.
