Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show! Earlier this year, we worked ahead as much as we could in our business and recorded a few episodes before the birth of our second son. Now that baby Oliver is here, we are back in the studio and recording new episodes! If you have kids of your own, you know how quickly things can change. That’s why we wanted to take a couple of episodes and give you some life updates! If you are new here and are looking for money-making and passive income tips, feel free to skip this episode and dive into other shows like: 20.

If you missed last week, we shared the fantastic story of Oliver Wave’s birth. If you missed it, go check that one out first! It will give you more context and behind-the-scenes info about our pregnancy, delivery, and everything leading up to today’s story. Only three short weeks after Ollie was born,  It all started when Chelsey noticed Ollie looked a little "blue," so we took him to urgent care. The Doctor came in and recommended we get him monitored at the hospital as soon as possible. From there, things started to move fast. The Doctors and Nurses started poking him and hooking him up to stuff. He was a champ the whole time, but for us, it was hard to watch. What we thought was not very serious turned very serious quickly. Our baby's breaths began to get labored, and every once in a while, you would notice he would totally stop. Ten seconds for newborns is normal,  but he'd go 20 or 30 seconds sometimes…while we all would try to wake him. This is what led the Doctor to decide that he needed to be airlifted to a hospital in Sacramento. Chelsey gets in an ambulance to head to the airport, and Stephen gets in the car and speeds the hour and a half drive to the hospital while she flies overhead. Hit play to hear what happens next! It was a wild 3-day roller coaster, but we were super thankful we trusted Chelsey's mamma’s intuition and took Oliver in when we did. Disclaimer: Ollie is totally happy and healthy now, and we are all taking proactive steps towards healing. We try to be as open and honest about our journey as possible. Thanks for letting us do life with you and catch you up on a few stories! In the next episode, we will be talking with our friend Mike who can help you leverage your brand and reach the right people!

Disclaimer From Chelsey: In sharing stories like this, it can be easy to compare one’s experience to your own. I found during pregnancy, I constantly was tempted to fall into the comparison trap. Is it okay if we NOT do that today? Is it okay if we all just leave comparison at the door before listening to this show?  My heart is that in sharing this story, I can be an encouragement to all moms and future moms alike. There are a lot of traumatic and horror stories out there..and spoiler alert: this is not one of them. If that sounds good, hit play now! I find it an honor anytime I can share my journey and help future moms know that birth is not scary. With that said, nothing in this episode is medical advice. How you respond in your heart and actions to this episode is on you. Stephen and I do things differently than the norm. (But isn’t that why you like us? LOL!) We also want to be as open and honest with you as we possibly can. So, thanks in advance for letting us be vulnerable with you!  Okay, back to the show notes! Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show! Today, Stephen and I share the before, during, and after events of sweet baby Ollie's birth. On March 6th, 2022, we started a new chapter in our lives as a family of four. After years of investing our time and money in pregnancy/birth knowledge, I had clear goals and a vision of what I wanted out of this birth for myself and for Oliver. That’s why the events leading up to the birth felt so out of control. From Stephen being all the way in Mexico to a high-blood pressure/preeclampsia scare. There were a lot of opportunities for us to give in to fear and uncertainty.  Hear how we pushed past the negative voices and medical scare tactics, how we used research skills to find the right answers and peace, why Stephen was yelling and cutting lines at the San Francisco Airport, how God undeniably proved his faithfulness, and so much more. This is definitely a podcast family-style show, so if you’re new here, please feel free to dive into some of our previous episodes if you’re looking for passive income and money-making opportunities! But hey…If you want to stick around, this “we first met story” will be funny one day, right?  PS: To see more pictures of Ollie, behind-the-scenes content of the Rainmaker Family, and tips every Mompreneur needs to know, head to Instagram to connect!

What would your life look like if you were 10X bolder?  Would you finally start that business? Write that book? End that relationship? Launch your new product? Travel abroad? Or maybe, being 10X bolder just means that you could believe in yourself again.  The fact is, fear shows up in different ways for all of us but the one thing that remains the same is fear will always hold us back.  It takes boldness to create the life of your dreams and break out of the mold. In this episode, we chat with someone who has been committed to being a student of boldness and decided to put the voice of fear on mute and see what happens. Welcome back to the Rainmaker Family Show! Today we want to introduce you to the one and only Nora McIntosh. One day, Nora was scrolling on YouTube and stumbled on a video from a speaker she follows. “What would you do if you were ten times bolder? If you're doing anything other than that, then fear has diminished you.” The speaker said. Those words struck a chord within Nora and now she is on a mission to help others live bolder and finally break fear off of their lives. Hit play to hear the practical things Nora did to start being more brave, how she started this incredible journey, and all the lessons she has picked up along the way.  We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did! During the recording, we decided we needed to write the words “10X Bolder” on our mirror as a reminder of this powerful conversation. If Nora’s story inspires you, let us know how you plan to take action! Reach out to us on Instagram. Links and more resources are below!

The day is done and It’s time to hang out with the family! But…it’s kind of been a long day…and after a long day scrolling through videos on your phone sounds like a good decompressor…and maybe if you just worked a little longer you could get ahead on a few things. As busy entrepreneurs and parents, we all have experienced similar situations and thoughts like this. It can be easy to feel overwhelmed or like you are split between two worlds when you are trying to juggle it all. If you and your family have found yourself in a season where building your business and your family are the main priorities, then this episode is going to be a game-changer for you! Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family show! In today’s episode, we talk with Real Estate and Marriage experts Joe and Shelby Seeley. This all-around power couple fell in love when they were just teenagers and found themselves on an incredible journey of life, entrepreneurialism, and raising powerful kids.  Throughout their journey, they have had many seasons where Joe and his dreams would take center stage, then they would switch gears and Shelby would start focusing on her goals and dreams. Other times they found themselves working together. The one thing that remained constant throughout their story, is they stayed in unity and communicated 100%. Listen in to hear how they did it and how you can show up more powerfully for your spouse! You’ll also hear amazing tips and tricks every parent needs to know about instilling the entrepreneurial spirit in their kids! Hit play to learn why Joe and Shelby started giving their kids commission-based allowance, practical ways to teach problem-solving abilities, how to help your children never worry about money, and so much more!

That’s why we were so thankful for this conversation and can’t wait to apply the Seeley’s advice to our own family.

Do you have a big dream or goal for your life that others think is crazy? If so, this episode is for you!  Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show! Today we want to introduce you to the incredible Madelyn Hansen. When Madelyn first came into our lives she had a big dream and the drive to make it happen.  We got a front-row seat to see her not only hit that goal but thrive in the process. If you are listening to this show, you probably have some big goals and dreams of your own. In this conversation, we want to unpack how to be specific about your goals, how you can make them happen, and how to keep going until it all becomes a reality. With only 2,000 in her pocket, Madelyn decided at a young age to move across the country and try to make it on her own. After working a 9-5 and becoming a music teacher, she was ready to take the lead into entrepreneurship after the tragic loss of her parents taught her that life was too short to be limited.  Listen in to hear the powerful journey of how she used her ups and downs to her advantage and how her goal of having a beach house by her 40th birthday became a reality.  (Oh yeah, and she didn’t stop there, she got 4 of her dream properties!) We all agree that life and success are never about the things we can buy or where our zip code is.

Did anyone ever say this to you growing up? “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again!” This saying isn’t just an old nursery rhyme or a phrase your mom used to say while you were learning how to ride a bike… This is a deep truth that applies to every entrepreneur.  Welcome back to another episode of the Rainmaker Family Show!

Suzy’s mindset will challenge you to dream bigger, work harder and help you find the internal tools you need to create your own dream life.  Within the first 15 mins of this episode. Suzy shares her journey of trial and error with navigating the manufacturing industry after she decided to launch her proprietary baby product to the market.  Hear how she got her start-up off the ground and launched her business with a toddler, a newborn and an entrepreneurial husband all under the same roof.

You may have heard us say before that “dollars follow value…” The more value you add or offer to the marketplace, to your customers, or to a business the money will start to flow in. We have seen this play out over and over again in our own lives and in our Rainmaker communities.  However, no one embodies this principle like our guest today!  In this episode of the Rainmaker Family Show, we sit down with one of our “best internet friends.” Bradley Sutton! Bradley is an Amazon FBA expert and has made millions for himself (and others.) The best part? He built his legacy through the lens of helping others. From helping his clients get started on Amazon or upleveling up their product, teaching others how to get healthy on his viral YouTube Channel, and more!   One thing we love about Bradley is his tenacity for being a life-long learner. We could all pick up a thing or two from him in this area! He has mastered the ability to learn and grow even if the money is short and time is limited.  If you have your own Amazon FBA business, make sure to listen to the end to hear Bradley’s #1 tip for leveraging keywords on the latest Amazon update!

How much would it be worth it to you to never do a single load of laundry ever again? Before you click off, hear us out! As 2021 was coming to a close and 2022 was on the horizon, we decided to take a moment and look back on our best investments of the year.  We wanted to make a list of the things that you could easily duplicate in your own life to start buying back your time, protect your peace and start getting closer to your dream life.  For us, outsourcing our laundry was like an answered prayer we never knew God cared about. To be honest, a few years ago the thought of outsourcing laundry was not even a possibility. Growing up in houses where Mom’s cooked, cleaned, did the laundry, worked, and kept the whole house running… It somehow seemed like we were failing. These feelings were expressly hard for Chelsey as a wife and mother.  Can you relate? If so, listen in to hear not only why this was such a needle mover for us but actually HOW we make it happen. Hit play to hear us breakdown our budget, our tips helping families of any size and income start outsourcing, and even address the limiting mindsets we Moms feel around this topic and how to overcome them.  We can’t wait to hear about the stories from this episode from women and moms new freedom that they experienced too by outsourcing their laundry!!
