Hey, it’s Nelly Alba

I am a mindset and purpose coach for moms

I’m also a podcaster, mom of 2 and youth program director.


I’m not your typical mindset and purpose coach; I’m just someone who’s been through it (continues to go through it) and figured some things out along the way.

If you’re a mom hustling for your dreams, dealing with the chaos or scared to go after your desires because you feel guilty of not giving your undivided attention to your kids/family…I feel you!

It’s also okay if you are not quite sure what the dream or desire is (yet) but you are aware that you want something more or different.

One of my strengths has been to make decisions based on my wants and regardless of fear. From a young age, I practiced manifestation, mindfulness and divine trust which helped me to accomplish a bunch…

The only Person who can stop You from living your most fulfilled life is you!

Some examples:

  • Became a high school teacher (my dream from childhood) straight out of college, being offered a position in 13 of my 14 interviews. PS: I failed my teacher exam 5 times before finally passing.
  • Saved up 10K in my first post-college year despite little financial knowledge
  • Despite PCOS, I had my first child, my son, through IVF in March of 2021 and my daughter in July of 2022
  • Bought my first home, and received the keys in June of 2020 (and found out I was pregnant just one week later)
  • I commit to yearly trips to a European country: Spain, France, Italy and more to come…

Fast forward to October 2022 – after I just had my second child earlier in July and I’m about to return to work from maternity leave. I had a huge “oh sh*t” moment. Something was off. Despite having checked everything off my “I will accomplish” list…I felt empty.

I had a deep conversation with myself and did what I do best and journaled about it. I realized a few things:

  • I LOVE the life I had built, but I now have an itch for more (which, at the time, I was not sure what that more was)
  • I had money blocks to deal with from childhood alongside getting real with my wants *as big or “unrealistic” as they may be!”
  • My purpose had EVOLVED. Meaning, I had entered a new stage in my life where my purpose is no longer just working with the youth in my city

So, I spent some time EXPLORING what it is that I really wanted. Including studying and deeply understanding purpose through the ikigai philosophy and method.

In that journey, I took out my mindset and manifesting tools, I connected with God and I began seeking the deep self-care necessary to become the best version of myself.

Let’s break down what I’ve done so far:

Recent accomplishments

November 2023, I did what I do best – started writing about the juggle working moms face. Blogging turned into a lightbulb moment – people make a living doing this! 

Cue the entry into entrepreneurship with my podcast, first as Working Mom Balanced, later rebranded to Back to HER Podcast in February 2023.

April 2023, I birthed my Etsy shop, creating mom planners and journals. Got myself a business coach – and began to take this SERIOUSLY. Now, elbow deep in the hustle, I’m narrowing down my lane, realizing I’m all about reminding folks of their power within.

August 2023, learned about UGC (user generated content) and instantly fell in love. Although busy, photography and video taking was something I loved and lost confidence in as I got older. Now? I am coming back baby.

What do I have to show for it?

  • Made $195 from my etsy shop organically selling $3 and $5 journals
  • Landed a paid collaboration with Smart Sleep Coach with PAMPERS 
  • 1,100+ podcast downloads and growing!!

My jam? Teaching ambitious moms with kids how to listen to their gut and uncover their evolved purpose in their current season of life. Not only that but commit and take action consistently.

  • Daydream your way to your goals *yes, action is involved too!*
  • Dump your thoughts in a journal; it works (and if that is not your thing, don’t fret, there are other techniques promise!)
  • Say “I WILL” instead of “I HOPE.” Language is EVERYTHING.
  • Keep the gratitude vibes flowing. Your life will change forever.
  • And know you’re worth it, no matter what. That is THE secret.

Now, I’m pulling back the curtain, ready to spill the beans on how to ditch the fear and manifest what you want right now. No fancy words, just real talk.

It’s time to tap into your power and rock a life you love. So, yeah, this is me, offering you the lowdown on how to let go of the stress and show your kiddos that they too can go after what they want. 

You in? Let’s do this.

To start: go give my podcast a listen, catch some freebies or DM me over on Instagram

So stinkin’ happy to be connected.
