The Podcast

Listen in as we interview moms and share their stories of triumph and challenges—providing their 360-degree view of motherhood and encouraging ourselves to grow and develop while chasing after our dreams. We aim to intersect mothers right where they’re at, providing opportunities that complement her already-full to-do list (podcasts in the carpool line, anyone?) and hold space in her busy schedule for her personal growth and ambitions.

The weekly podcast breaks down the business of being a modern mother tackling topics from career/business alignment, regaining confidence and resilience at work post-baby, negotiating job offers, redefining success, work and life as you create space for motherhood to pitching your business and investing in high-growth businesses. We cover it all. These raw and honest conversations with powerhouse moms, thought-leaders, investors, entrepreneurs and CEOs is exactly what you need to stay encouraged, inspired and excited to take actions on your dreams.
