    I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Telese Hampton. Most of all, I hope you heard something that will help you reset your mind and transform your life.
    My golden takeaway is to listen and answer your calling. Life is too short for you not to do what God created you to do. The last thing you want is to be living your last days with regret and “what ifs” – what if I started that business? What if I wrote that book? Do it now while you’re able. Don’t let fear, negative self-talk, doubt, or anything else stand in the way of your dreams and purpose.
    What’s your takeaway? What resonated with you?
    I’d love to hear your thoughts. You can leave a comment below the show notes at http://ericablocker.com/161. If you’d like to send me an email, you can do that at: Erica@momswithdreams.com.
    Until next time, RECLAIM your DREAM. Do what YOU love. Make a difference.

Jamie’s love for reading started when she found the books, The Coldest Winter Ever, by Sister Souljah and Flyy Girl, by Omar Tyree.

    MWD 156: Discover Your Personal Power As A Podcaster

    MWD 156: Discover Your Personal Power As A Podcaster

    This episode was inspired by my recent trip to Atlanta to speak at the inaugural She Podcasts Live conference – an event created for female podcasters. I had an AMAZING time meeting new and old friends, learning from presenters, and being introduced to new products and services for podcasters. In this episode, I share some of the unexpected benefits of being a podcaster and how I discovered my personal power.
    When I began my podcasting journey in 2015, I had no idea that it would help me face and overcome some of my biggest fears while helping me gain new skills and build confidence.
    As you listen, I encourage you to find yourself in my story.
    What projects are you currently working on that have allowed you to stretch, learn, and evolve?
    What fears have you overcome?
    What skills have you gained as a result of your work?
    Life is all about learning and growing. If you’re not learning, you’re not growing. If you’re not growing, you’re not truly living – you’re simply existing.
    I hope that you hear something that inspires you and reminds you of the possibilities that are within your reach every single day. You have more power than you may recognize. If your life isn’t going the way you want it to, use your power to change it. Life is too short to spend it sitting on the sidelines. It’s your time to shine!
    Wishing you ALL my very best,
    Erica

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.
