What have I learned in the last 4 years?

It has been 4 years since I embarked on my journey of becoming a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant. I am a big believer in personal reflection and want to share with you what I have learned over the last 4 years.

•I have the best job in the world.
•Sleep is a skill that must be learned.
•Sleep is becoming more valued in our society.
•Sleep consultants are becoming much more common and widespread. When I started, I was the third person in Calgary that worked with families to help improve the sleep of their children. Now there are over 40 sleep consultants in Calgary.
•I am truly blessed to be the first Sleep Sense Consultant in Alberta.
•Dana Obleman, the founder of SleepSense is an amazing women and mentor.
•Lack of sleep can tear a family apart.
•No parent likes to hear their child cry.
•Having a child go to sleep without relying on anything external to themselves is where all the magic happens.
•Every parent hits their breaking point when they just can not take the lack of sleep any longer at different times.
•The sooner you teach a baby to sleep well, the better.
•Sleep training does not mean sleeping through the night.
•Balancing work and family is difficult.
•The group of SleepSense Consultants I am part of is a wonderful and supportive group of women whom I admire greatly.
•Our yearly conventions are a highlight of my year.
•Referrals are the backbone of my business.
•My family comes first.
