Podcast is live!! Episode 1, called "The Leadership Journey", explains the overarching mission of this podcast -- that is, to help moms take care of themselves, so they can be best equipped to take care of their kids. My foremost goal has always been to take care of mom - because if we take care of the mom in the family, we really hold the power to take great care of the whole family -- and if we can teach a mom to take care of herself, we really unlock a power that self-sustains.
