So much useful information

I"m about halfway. through the back catalogue of podcasts - these are an amazing treasure trove. For me, they strike the right balance between big vision inspiration and practical encouragement to take next steps - so important when you're feeling overwhelmed. I really appreciate where Genia talks through problems she's struggling with - I find that knowing other families are struggling with similar issues really helps me keep trying. The guest speakers provide exception expertise and inspiration - Janet Klees is a favorite.
