The perfect podcast for mompreneurs!

Teri and Amy have such a good mix of parenting topics and working mom topics which is so helpful because so many others out there focus on one or the other but they get and bring in guests to help working moms get what they can done and not guilt trip themselves when they don’t. They are smart, warm and relatable. Such an uplifting and education show to have in your podcast library!
