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!

    42. Take Control of Your Schedule and Let Go of Unnecessary Expectations

    42. Take Control of Your Schedule and Let Go of Unnecessary Expectations

    It’s time to get real about your time. So often, we are upholding obligations and priorities of other people without much consideration to their impact on our own schedules. We carry the expectations of others or what we think we ”should” be doing as working moms...and before we know it, we’re spending time in areas we never would have chosen.

    In today’s episode, we’re talking through how you can identify opportunities to shed others’ priorities and expectations in order to get more time back in your day. I’ll also be sharing one of my favorite methods that can help you analyze just where your time is being spent in order to dig into the ”why”.

    41. Who Am I? Authenticity Matters as a Working Mom

    We tell ourselves a lot of stories, but rarely do we consider what we’d do if there were no expectations, pressures or judgement being placed on us. 



    Who are you as a working mom outside of everyone else’s expectations? It’s an important question to ask...and one we’re diving into on today’s episode. Time to get real with who you are as a working mom and what you truly want.

    40. Overcoming Guilt When You Can't Be There

    40. Overcoming Guilt When You Can't Be There

    One of the most common sources of guilt for working moms is missing our children’s activities due to work commitments.

    I have missed games and practices...and soon to be a band concert. I’m not a perfect mom by any means, but these moments don’t make me a bad one. And they don’t make you a terrible mother either! 

    In today’s episode, we’ll delve into the roots of this guilt, offer a more realistic perspective, and explore the positive aspects of these situations along with strategies to overcome the accompanying guilt.

    39. How to Create Successful Routines and Schedules

    39. How to Create Successful Routines and Schedules

    With so many projects, activities and events on our calendars...it’s hard to find time for ourselves. In today’s episode, I’m diving into the number one thing you need in order to create a highly effective routine. But I’ll warn you...it’s not what you think.

    I’m a firm believer that progress is better than perfection, and living in the grey is better than black and white thinking. It’s why I believe in blending over balancing. 

    One great way to do that, is to approach our schedules and routines with moderation. More specifically, to approach it from an 80/20 lens. 

    Curious how that can set you up for success? Wonder no longer! Hit play and let’s dig into this theory, and its application to working moms, now!
