Are you questioning your decision to be a working mom?

Have you wrestled with working mom guilt or trying to keep up with it all?

Do you struggle to find work-life balance?

Does the mental load of juggling motherhood and career exhaust you?

Are you finally ready to thrive at home and at work?


In this podcast you’ll find real talk and honest conversation around the struggles and beauty of being a working mom. There are so many moments that come to mind when blending motherhood and career. Some moments are beautiful while others are painful. Moments where you feel like you have it all together, and those times when you feel overwhelmed. Moments are what make us who we are. Through focusing on identity work, gaining clarity on what you want and exploration of new approaches, listeners will have a fresh and insightful take on the journey of working motherhood. If you’re ready to remove working-mom guilt (or at least drop it down a notch!) and thrive both at home and your career, you’re in the right place!


Hey there, I’m Lacy. As a working mom of four boys, I know what it’s like to pursue a career in tandem with motherhood. While raising our crew alongside my husband, I held a variety of individual contributor and executive roles in both startup and corporate environments. Being a working mom is hard. At times I felt like I had it all together and other times, I felt like I was letting everyone down. I found myself chasing perfection and the elusive work/life balance we’ve been conditioned to pursue. I was treading water and felt like I was letting everyone down.


I finally realized I needed to shift my mindset and the lens with which I viewed my relationship with work and motherhood. To do this, I had to get clarity on several aspects of life and surround myself with people that supported me. I needed to recognize the moments - both good and frustrating - that made me who I am. I’m honored to share many of these reflection points and introduce you to some amazing working moms who will impart their perspectives, all while having some fun along the way!

    48. When Boundaries Aren't Enough & You Can't Keep Up

    48. When Boundaries Aren't Enough & You Can't Keep Up

    You put boundaries in place to protect your time and priorities...but why does it seem like you're living in hustle culture, treading water and barely keeping up? Weren't those boundaries to keep us from getting to this pace of life in the first place?
    If you're anything like me, you think you're coming at life from a strategic perspective where you're making decisions that are best for your time and family. But more often than not, we find small pockets of decisions that need to be made that can compromise the well intended parameters. Before we know it, we're living life in a dead-out sprint rather than a sustainable jog. 
    We're frustrated, overwhelmed and feeling like the busyness is getting the better of us. 
    If this sounds like you, know that you're in good company. We all start out with great intentions, but somewhere between decision and action...we can easily get diverted. If you're living life in the fast lane even though you've set your boundaries...this episode is for you.
    Let's dive in!

    47. Never Enough Time? 3 Things to Build into Your Routine Today

    47. Never Enough Time? 3 Things to Build into Your Routine Today

    One of the most common frustrations for the working moms I talk with, is centered around not having enough time. Have you ever said any of the following:
    There's never enough time in the day
    There's not enough time to get it all done
    There's never enough time for me to do anything for myself
    There's not even enough time to get in quality sleep
    I can't find the time to be a wife, mom, employee and take care of myself
    I'm not spending as much time with my kids as I would like
     
    If any of these lines sound like something that's ran across your thoughts before, you are not alone. In fact, this episode is for you. 
    In this episode, I share the three things I'm loving right now that help me better manage my time and energy...so that I can spend it in areas that I'd rather prioritize.
