To all the moms who are Mom Bosses in one way or another… Whether you are staying home and raising your little ones, running your own business, pursuing a corporate career, or working that side hustle, you are absolutely, 100% a Mom Boss.

And if you’re doing all of this while living abroad, well, you’re simply fantabulous all the way!

Join Des and Iva as two business besties who are borderline obsessed with building a global tribe that is unapologetically authentic in how we embrace our roles as moms and mom bosses having REAL WORLD conversations about all things motherhood. They live by the motto: “You have to do it yourself, but you can’t do it alone.”

Iva Perez currently lives in Singapore. When she is not helping fellow mompreneurs redefine their own rules and dismantle their old limiting beliefs through her RTT practice, you’ll find her tackling bath time and bedtime with her two children and sometimes yelling: “Don’t put your hand inside the toilet!”

Desiree Bonau is a mom of a 4 year old with her second one on the way and currently calls Kyoto, Japan her home. Originally from Germany, she has spent most of her life abroad and does not really know what it’s like to be rooted anymore...

Each and every episode is bursting at the seams with valuable, actionable advice and insights that truly pack a punch. After all, feeling empowered to make confident and smart choices for you and your family gives you total BOSS status. You in?

    #nofilter | Capping off the season with the kids!

    Wow, what a season! 

    And we are capping it off with the one reason why this podcasts exists in the first place. OUR KIDS. Because without them, we wouldn’t be moms, and certainly no Mom Bosses Abroad. So, grab your headphones, sit back and listen to another hilarious episode that definitely has no filter on it. 
    
Love it? Share it! And see you back here for Season 3.

    Words that win | How to get the internet to saddle up, pony up, and want to ride off with you into the sunset... before they even meet you Part 2

    In this two-part episode, the Wizard of Words and copywriter extraordinaire, Edward Bell, infuses the conversation about using words that win and copy that sells with pure, delightful, and humorous energy. He goes high and low and deep into the energetics of things as well as the practical ways you can start creating content that magically connects and wows your desired audience. Don’t say we didn’t warn you_  with Edward’s witty, candid and authentic personality leading the way, you will be easily immersed into the magical world of words while also being inspired to reach for your keyboard right afterwards!

    Edward Bell
    Edward Bell is the copywriter for people whose least favorite F-word is "formula". Because formulas are what? Boring. And no one buys from Same-y Sounding Susan. He's the writer you hire when you want your words to be heard, respected, and acted upon... without sounding like a hype man chuggging Red Bull at a frat party. He's known for believing your work's special before he's even met you. What you hire him for, is words that make the world feel that too.
    Working With Edward In His On Words: My absolute favorite thing in the world (and when I do my best work) is collaborating on copy like we're in a Netflix writer's room. I call it the Word Wizard Apprenticeship. If a medieval blacksmith and Ernest Hemingway got hot and steamy, this would be their baby. It's 3 months, 1-on-1 with me, where I help you write the best copy of your life on projects you already need to get done. No extra time out of your calendar, and you walk out with copy you not only want to shout into a megaphone, but know will attract the right clients to you.
