Managing Your Family Finances, with Meghan Rabuse

Living with a Chronic Illness, with Kelli Raleigh

Kelli Raleigh is a personal friend of mine whom I’ve deeply admired as long as I’ve known her. She’s inspirational, fun, and has a deep love for the village of people she surrounds herself with. Kelli also has a chronic illness, and has been a single mom for most of her eight year old daughter Ruby’s life. We can all agree that mom-ing is hard for everyone, but I keep trying to imagine what the added layer of a potentially life threatening illness AND being a single mom must be like for a woman, and it makes me admire Kelli even more. She’s sharing stories about making the decision to be a single mom, parenting a gifted child, and facts about her illness, Type 1 Diabetes and what she’s doing to advocate and fight against it.

Living with a Chronic Illness, with Kelli Raleigh

Fighting the "Frump," with Corina Holden

What does the word “Frumpy” mean to you? Have you ever felt frumpy? Have you ever seen the mom in the pick up line at school who just always looks so put together, and you just wish you had a fraction of her wardrobe or fashion sense? Meet Corina Holden, founder of Frump Fighters:a resource for moms fighting the frumpy monster. It’s worth mentioning that Corina is a mom of three boys, all five years old and under. So you would think that style might be the last thing on her mind, chasing after littles. Not so. ThroughFrump Fighters, Corina encourages moms to dress intentionally every day, even if you’re not leaving the house or seeing humans older than five every day. Shortly after becoming a mom, It became frustrating for Corina to feel "the frump" threatening to take over. In 2016 she decided to do something about it and started researching what her wardrobe was missing. She wanted everything to mix and match easily and needed to work with what she had, being on a family budget! Turns out she wasn't the only mom feeling this way. Frump Fighters (atnowthaticando.com) has become a popular place for moms who need fashion simplified for everyday life. I love talking about clothes, and this conversation with Corina was no exception. We talk about practical ways to look and feel your best, through simple changes in your closet. Listen to the end of the show to learn about how you can get 20% off Corina’sStay at Home Moms’ Year-Round Outfit Guide or the Frumpy to Fabulous Course.

Guilt-free Nutrition and Eating FOR Your Hormones, with Gemma Clark

Understanding Your Cycle, with "The Period Coach"

Our monthly visitor. Aunt Harriet. Aunt Flo (why is it always an ‘aunt?’) The curse. Lady problems. Plumbing issues. Catch my drift? This is a subject I’ve been learning more about, even though my “visitor” has been around for well over two decades. I think many of us learned everything we know from that one class or video in the 5th grade, and then never really talked about it again, other than the occasional time we complain to our friends about it. But did you know that our cycle is a month long process, that not only affects our bodies, but how we think, feel, and behave? Did you know that there are specific phases where we have more energy, and when our body is asking certain things of us that we ignore or feel guilty about? Stasha Washburn is known as The Period Coach. She’s a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Visionary Business Coach. Her Life Vision is to reconnect women to the power in their cycles and end the taboo of menstruation, sono big deal.Stasha is changing the conversation around periods from whispers in the ladies room to empowered public discussions. Stasha spent 20 years searching for a way to relieve her Endometriosis, and in the process discovered how to help women balance their hormones, through both science and ‘woo’. Knowing this she could no longer keep quiet, becoming a speaker and using her voice ever since to bring relief to women worldwide. She and I talk about the different phases or our month-long cycles, how we can pay attention to them, and actually use them to our advantage. There’s so much information here, including how we can include and teach both our girls AND our boys on the subject, and maybe even get a little TLC out of the deal. I took more notes during this interview than any other so far, and gained so much knowledge about how our cycles work and how we can learn to, as Stasha says, get in a lazy river inner tube with a cocktail in hand, and learn to use the current to our advantage. You ready to dig in and learn more than just what your middle school health teacher taught you? Me too! Let's go.

Being a Working Mom Again with Peg Theobald

Peg is a mom of 2, a foster mom, a blogger, and she has recently decided to re-enter the workforce full time. Peg and I talk about what it was like to make the decision to go back to work, the pushback she got from social media, some mom guilt she's received, and we dig deep into some ideals we both had growing up about what a mom "should" do when it comes to raising her kids and working. It's really good stuff. I loved Peg’s vulnerability. It’s interesting how the ideas we get in our head about how things ‘should’ be can really affect us. Definitely find Peg online. She’s such a sweet soul. FACEBOOK COMMUNITY: www.facebook.com/groups/wannabenation INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/thesupermomwannabe SHOW NOTES: www.supermompodcast.com/peg
