MMO podcast is a gift

When you’re going through the darkest days and you’re not sure how to make it, the MMO podcast provides enough light and hope to carry you. Michelle has incredible guests and provides such thoughtful perspective. I was so glad I started listening right in the beginning of my process because her mindset is what kept me level-headed and in the best place for my kids. Now that my divorce is finalized, I still listen weekly because she has very relevant advice for after you are through step.
