Erin is a mom of 3 who’s lived 9 lives, She’s been a full-time SAHM, a full-time working mom, a part-time working mom, and an entrepreneur.
She worked for other people for 5 years before she took a leap of faith in her own vision to create her company, Totum.
Totum means whole in Latine - they are devoted to helping modern mothers feel whole in motherhood - body, mind, relationships to ambition, my relationships themselves.
In this episode, G and Erin talk about:
-How to discern between striving and trusting
-We talk about the show Mrs. America and how the women’s movement really hasn’t gotten very far - the next frontier of feminism will happen within the corporate structure

-Erin’s next-level definition of how to feel WHOLE i.e. “Totum” as a working mom
-Both of our strong arguments for trading productivity for feeling WHOLE
-Doing it all vs having it all / giving ourselves permission to stop
-The “myths” Erin holds inside about what it means to do it all vs have it all
-Echoing Eve Rodsky, “Time is time; time is not money”
-Mom guilt, the endless responsibilities we put on OURSELVES as mothers and the mindfuckery of it all
-G talks about how she’s okay going first in airing her dirty laundry to create vulnerability, community and permission to have it all, but not have it all together.
-Erin’s final piece of advice is vital for any preggos who are ABOUT to push out a baby
