    Minna Dubin: Mom Rage

    Minna Dubin: Mom Rage

    Minna Dubin is a writer and artist from California. I first read her article in the NYT on Mum rage and shouted "that's me! She's talking about me!" and from then on I didn't feel so alone. We chat about the patriarchy, how mums are seen still and the work that needs to happen for this to shift. If you're a mum, parent, member of the human race I implore you to have a listen and BUY HER BOOK!

    Are you giving it all away? How to create bang down the door offers

    Are you giving it all away? How to create bang down the door offers

    Are you giving it all away? Is there a fear of always needing to give away more so that people to buy from you, ending in no-one buying from you or you having a whole heap more work than you anticipated? I walk you through the reasons why we do this AND how to stop this cycle of madness of always adding more more more. And how to get people to buy from you so they're banging down the door 
    Kia ora I’m Jane and I am a blogger, podcaster, writer, photographer, coach and mama. I utterly love women and supporting them with the stuff we all struggle with but don’t talk about. Come and ask about 1:1 coaching that will rule them all.

Truth teller.

I love how Jane so powerfully and unapologetically shares her voice, empowering other women to do the same. Her wide range of backgrounds of the wahine she interviews helps you see you are not alone and leaves you inspired.

Jane has a way with words and getting to the heart of the matter.
I love that she gives so many different women a voice and in doing so gives permission to her listeners to live their best lives.
Can’t wait to hear more.
