Hey mama! Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed and buried under endless to-do lists while trying to be a great mom and achieve personal success too? 

If you're anything like me, you love being a mom and your kiddos are your world. But at the same time, you're craving for that world to also include space to reconnect with yourself, rediscover your dreams and passions, and remember what it feels like to be successful at more than just making amazing lunchtime snacks.

You would love to find harmony between being a great mom and having personal success as an individual, but question whether that's really even possible. You prayed for this chapter of your life but now that it's here, you find yourself stuck in survival mode most of the time. You would love to feel vibrant, accomplished, and confident again. 

If you can relate, then you're certainly in the right place and you're most definitely not alone. 

I'm Kassy Sunshine, x3 certified Life and Mindset Success Coach for moms, recovering shouldaholic, fellow mama and host of the Mama's Got Dreams Podcast. I know what it feels like to struggle to find space for being a great mom and doing the things that make you feel like YOU again. To almost convince yourself that being a mom must mean putting your personal dreams and ambitions on pause, and being really good at showing up for everyone around you.

That's why this podcast is dedicated to providing you with practical strategies, inspiring but honest personal stories and actionable tips to overcome burnout and achieve success and fulfillment both in motherhood and beyond. Each episode will dive deep into topics like overcoming mom guilt, navigating life's curveballs, finding harmony between being a mom and your career or business and developing a mindset that supports your success and happiness.

And the best part? There’s no hustling required! 

Tune in to learn anti-hustle success strategies for success and messy, real and totally imperfect motherhood experiences. My hope is this podcast can become a safe haven for you to feel seen, understood, and supported in motherhood and beyond so that your fulfillment cup can get the major TLC it deserves.

    Ep 24 This Isn't Goodbye, It's See Ya Soon: Practicing What I Preach and Taking a Mental Health Pause

    Ep 24 This Isn't Goodbye, It's See Ya Soon: Practicing What I Preach and Taking a Mental Health Pause

    This episode is not one I wanted to record, but one I needed to in order to take care of my mental health, be the mom I want to be, and ultimately show up for you on this podcast the way that I want to.
    I am going to be pausing the podcast and pausing my social media, for an unknown amount of time (hopefully not too long!), in order to do some much needed work on my mental health, my relationship with entrepreneurship, and my sense of identity.
    This episode vulnerably shares what has led me to this very difficult decision and why I think it is best for me and my coaching clients and my family even though it comes with a ton of fears and worries.
    Operating from integrity and authenticity is top priority for me, so I have to practice what I preach, listen to my intuition telling me I am out of alignment, take a step back, ask for help, get realigned, pivot and evolve, and step into the next chapter of my motherhood journey, business journey, and individual journey on a healthier, more sustainable foundation.
    I firmly believe breakdowns lead to breakthroughs and right now I am in a breakdown phase so that I can learn, grow, release, evolve, and step into a new chapter helping others in a better way.
    I really hope you listen to this episode and if you resonate with any of it, consider where you may need to take a pause in your life and know that it is okay to take a step back in order to take bigger steps forward in the future.
    This isn’t goodbye, it is see you soon, and I can’t wait to find my way back here!

    Ep 22 Increasing Worthiness and Feeling Enough as a Mom

    Ep 22 Increasing Worthiness and Feeling Enough as a Mom

    This episode is about overcoming the feeling of not being enough, doing enough, and achieving enough so you can feel worthy and enough as a mom and an individual. I talk about inherent worthiness versus earned worthiness and how you are born worthy but the stories, expectations, and beliefs we are exposed to as children and throughout our life form belief pathways about what success is and what doing enough is and what we have to do and achieve and become to be considered worthy.
    We have to recognize the belief pathways we have been passively letting run the show in our mind and instead choose intentional belief pathways that support our connection to our inherent worhtiness and align with how we want to live our lives. This episode includes a special treat with a guided meditation on feeling worthy, confident, and enough.

    Quote:"I want to teach my daughter that her worthiness is internal. It's in there. Nobody can take it. Nobody can diminish it. She doesn't have to earn it or prove it or go find it or validate it in any sense. She is worthy, whole, and complete all on her own." - Kassy

    Ep 20 Taking Chances on Your Dreams: My Biggest Takeaways from Competing on a Reality TV show Competition for Entrepreneurs

    Ep 20 Taking Chances on Your Dreams: My Biggest Takeaways from Competing on a Reality TV show Competition for Entrepreneurs

    In today's episode, I tell you all about how I applied and got accepted into a reality TV show for entrepreneurs! The cake on top for me: It's created and hosted by Wes Bergmann from MTV’s The Challenge! Fast forward through a whirlwind casting process...I overcame my fears, doubts, and mom guilt to take a chance on myself and my dreams. And I am SO glad I did!
    Through this experience, I found my voice, my power, and my identity again. I found a spark that I had lost track of. I learned so much about entrepreneurship and built a belief in myself as a business owner that I had been missing. I got validation that what I am trying to do in the world matters. Sometimes us moms need to hear that.
    I wanted to share my key takeaways and reflections from this experience that I think all moms need to hear and can benefit from. I hope these takeaways help you find your voice, your power, and your spark again as well. The world needs your light in it and I am here to be a voice to remind moms that you matter, your dreams matter, and you are worthy of taking up space and having a voice.
    No spoilers though…you’ll have to watch the whole thing to see if I win. (promise it will be worth checking out!)

    Ep 19 Showing Up as Mom When the World Feels Heavy

    Ep 19 Showing Up as Mom When the World Feels Heavy

    This episode is about how challenging it can be to show up as mom and be what everyone needs from you when the world or your world feels heavy. As moms, I truly believe we become much more empathetic than the average person (one of our superpowers and one of our challenges) so when the world feels heavy, we really feel that.
    You are still human mama, you still feel just like everyone else does. It can be so hard to feel helpless and unsure how to navigate these heavy times, so you have to be extra vigilant to protect yourself, protect your energy and make sure to give yourself some extra love and self-care and time to fill your cups up.
    You have to pour into others extra during times like this so it’s more important than ever to try and replenish your cups as best you can. This episode is meant to be from my mama heart to yours and feel like a big hug saying you’re not alone, I know this is hard, you’re allowed to admit it is hard, take care of yourself and you’re not in this alone.
    *this is not a political episode or expressing any particular viewpoint on world issues.
