Has changed my life

I stumbled across this podcast accidentally when I heard Cherylanne speak as a guest on another podcast that I listen to. I have been catching up on the episodes ever since and this podcast and Cherylanne’s insight and tips have changed my life for the better. She has shown me why I’ve been feeling frustrated and burnt out at my job and has given me practical and realistic ways to start aligning my actions with my goals and start living as my true self. I am so grateful to the things I’ve learned from Cherylanne and this podcast and I am so excited for the future that she has opened my eyes to! Any working mother who may be feeling like their work is not bringing them happiness or fulfillment needs to listen to this podcast to learn how to make your life and your job work for you so you can start feeling like yourself again. Thank you!!!

Master of your craft!

Great tips on how to stop doing to much!
compare mode. The comparison trap.

Control. Haven’t learned to let control. The level of detail that you give someone who may you do your shopping for you.

Uncomfortable feelings come up if you say no. Guilt. Judgment. Fomo.

Refreshing and insightful

Cherylanne consistently brings insights, reflections, and inspiration, whether she’s doing a solo episode or interviewing a guest. This show is a much needed breath of fresh air for this solopreneur mom!
