Great Podcast

Hi Erica, I stumbled upon your podcast this week and only heard your Fall 2018 season opening episode (after your summer break, and BTW, I absolutely LOVE summer also. It’s my favorite season of the year and I share the same sentiments about loving the sun, summer wear, flip flops, vacations, etc). I feel I resonate with you and your podcast! Thanks for your encouragement, empowerment, and insight! Keep up the great, awesome work! Many people, like me, are inspired by you and your journey!

J. Barshop ,

Awesome show, highly recommend!

Erica and her guests share actionable and inspiring lessons on how to live your best life.

Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Moms With Dreams if you want the knowledge AND mindsets to become the very best version of yourself (and reach all of your overall goals as a result)!

Powerful and Inspiring

The Moms With Dreams Show is simply magnificent. Erica engages her audience by connecting with their every day journey to dream boldly and aggressively pursue what one might have thought was unattainable. Each week I learn new skills, hear fresh stories, and know that there are others out there that have the same questions, concerns and reservations that I do. Not only are the guest speaking from their own place of passion, obstacles, and achievement, Erica opens up to speak to her own journey in the process. You are not alone, and the Moms With Dreams Show affirms that dreams do come true.
