    Body Positivity, Building a Business & More w/ Susie Taaffe

    Body Positivity, Building a Business & More w/ Susie Taaffe

    It's like lately every other ad I come across is for some brand of shape wear intended to help women appear skinnier and more sucked in (for lack of a better term) and I honestly hate it. As women I think that we have been told too often that we are only beautiful if we are thin. We shouldn't look like we have bumps, lumps or curves. I don't know about you, but I am tired of that narrative and so was Susie Taaffe to CEO and Founder of Skanties. On this episode I interview Susie and we talk all about why she created Skanties, how she started a business AFTER her divorce and tips on how to thrive as a single mom.

    Why I Talk Politics With My Kids

    Politics can be a touchy subject for many but as a mom I believe that it is important to talk about with my kids. I believe that it is important for my children, when age appropriate, to learn about things that will potentially effect them in their lives as they get older and why it is important as citizens to participate in our democracy.

Able to relate on many levels.

When you said a different kind of tired I heard you. As a solo parent of 2 boys and one with special needs, it was a struggle after my husband passed last year. Truly a blessing to found this podcast.

Not an incubator?

Grow up. It’s not the child’s fault that a woman doesn’t use birth control, birth control and condoms, refrains completely, etc. Take responsibility for your actions. As a mother…not religious, not alt right…I find it super troublesome that you have a podcast about mothering, but are ok with women killing babies inside them, simply because they don’t want it. I hope you don’t have the same disdain for your own children. Smh.
