This is so inspiring and useful, I’m also in the UK and haven’t found a podcast this good as of yet! Thank you Hillary! The ladies needed this! Since having two children in my 30s, it’s been a real, life changer and I feel like I’m always stressed out, managing the load. This is like therapy 🙂 it slows my thoughts down and I process more positively! Plus the professional information is just so amazing! ⭐️🙂🔑
Ps the discussion with Jen Atkin has given me the nudge I needed!
Addicted to this podcast!
