I’m not going to pretend that boundaries are easy. They are tricky and sticky and often intimidating. But boundaries are also the KEY to liberating our time and energy and mental space.

Ever since I read Michelle Obama’s book two years ago, I have been obsessed with this notion of becoming. We are always becoming. There is no way around it.

5 years ago today I launched the first episode of The Shameless Mom Academy.

People are going to tell you NO. You will be rejected. Over and over and over. One of the gifts of being an entrepreneur is that you get rejected so often (especially early on) that you get a little callous to it - meaning, you let it roll off you easier and faster each time. This is a blessing. Without this gift (which definitely doesn’t feel like…

We are coming up on a full 12 months of enduring a pandemic that we initially thought would last 2-6 weeks. How are you? No, really?
