Hi, I’m Alyson
I help business owners prepare for maternity leave and create a space to cherish, not dread.
My story begins 5 years ago when I created my own business, Operations Agency.
It was (is?) my baby. My husband was in the military at the time and away on training at least once per month.
I was at home with our pup and able to create my own schedule, pour a ton of time into the business, and be focused almost entirely on making it grow.
Then I got pregnant!
We were thrilled to become parents and in an instant my google search history, my Instagram feed, and all of my spare time were flooded with information about pregnancy, becoming a mother, and how I was going to handle it all.
Thinking back, I’m glad I was so calm about it all!
Something that I searched for more information and guidance on was how to take time off as a business owner…
My husband’s military contract was up and I had become the sole breadwinner.
I was honored to be able to provide for my family, but I was a little intimidated.
I’d never taken more than a week off from the business. And when I was on… I was ON. There was no breaking to nurse or drive kids to doctors’ appointments. It was just me, my computer, and my team making it happen.
I knew I had to change something in order to prepare to take some time off and augment my day-to-day to fit my new lifestyle when I returned.
Shocked by the lack of structured information available to moms, I decided to lean in and document my experience prepping, executing and returning from maternity leave.
I used the skills I had built to create structure for my own business and dozens of other companies over the years.
Not to mention all the help I’d lent to organizations who were about to see one of their employees go out on mat leave.
And I created and executed my preparation plan.
Then, 17 short months later I optimized… I did it again.
That’s how Mastering Maternity Leave was born!
My programs offer simple, practical tools you can use to prop (and even grow) your business up in your absence.
The same tools I’ve been using to help structure businesses and create solid operational foundations for the last five years.
Now, I run Operations Agency, our bustling home with 2 young sons (2.5 and 9 months) and help expecting mompreneurs prep for this massive shift in life and business.
Now, you don’t have to be afraid of the business going up in smoke while you take some time to focus on your family.
