    Ep 61 I The Power of Mind Body Connection with Erin Soto

    If you’ve been listening to me for a while now, you know how important mindset is to me. In motherhood and in the business entrepreneurial space, the way you think about things matters. Today I am joined by author, wellness activist, and stage 3 cancer survivor Erin Soto. After ignoring signs that her body was telling her, she realized that her mindset was playing directly into what was happening to her physically. She now believes that self care is healthcare and she champions others to know their bodies and listen to what it’s saying. After my recent health struggles over the past year, I am so inspired after reading her book “The Mother of All Fights” and speaking with her today.

    Ep 58 I It's Okay to Rest

    Guess who’s back with another confession? It’s me. Truth is, I used to never want to rest. I wanted to be doing everything at all times, and if I wasn’t doing everything all at once, I would feel like I had failed. If you are telling yourself that and believe that like I did, please know that it is a LIE! That is no way to live. You can get things done, be a productive mom, and a successful business owner and also have ample time for rest. Make time for you today. Unwind a bit and enjoy this episode.
