A few months ago, the unstoppable Lael Couper Jepson of SheChanges asked me to be a part of her annual (and extremely popular) SheSpeaks women’s storytelling event that came to pass just two weeks ago, in early December. Of course, I said yes – because I KNOW about the power of women’s stories (and I also know that it’s a good thing to get out of our comfort zones every now and then #introvert).
Now that the dust has settled (and my nerves have mostly gone back to base level), I wanted to share the LIVE audio of my SheSpeaks story here, as it’s really the story of my journey to starting Who’s Your Mama Media.
The (Re)Discovering Creativity After Motherhood Workbook is for mothers who desire to pursue personal fulfillment through creative hobbies, outlets, and activities, but don’t know where to direct their focus, feel guilty taking the steps to go after their dreams, or cannot logistically figure out how to fit creativity into their already busy lives.
Inside you will find:
• A little bit of self-discovery and self-care journaling
• A little bit of creative best practices
• A sprinkling of productivity hacks and logistical planning
• A handful of hands-on activities to get those creative juices flowing
• A whole lot of much-needed encouragement and permission while you work toward the goal of reclaiming intentional, and ongoing, space for creativity—because you deserve this, mamas!
Hi there, mamas! So, I’ve admittedly been a bit under the radar for the past year or so…adultin’ but also workin’ away on The (Re)Discovering Creativity After Motherhood Workbook– which is ALMOST READY OMG! In the meantime, some super-exciting, big freakin’ announcements:

MOTHER’S DAY SPECIAL EPISODE! An intertwined chat with Lesli Weiner – former weaver and SAHM-turned-working-mom, current social butterfly and busiest “retired” person I know…who happens to be MY MOM! We discuss her artistic schooling and transition into SAHM…then again into working mom, how the biggest challenge for her creativity was (and still is!) “time,” memories of her mother (my Nana) and how she pursued her artistic hobbies, how all of this relates to society on a larger scale (then and now), mixed in with some delightful family disagreement with how both of us remember any of the above. Good times!
SPECIAL SOLO SHOW – Announcements on Season 2, the Who’s Your Mama Workbook and what’s next. Thank you SO much for tuning in to Season 1 of Who’s Your Mama, a podcast dedicated to creative mamas! I’m hoping that the last 21 episodes, and the awesome mamas interviewed therein, have inspired you to give quality time to your authentic selves. You deserve it, mamas! (Full transcript available below show notes…)
SEASON ONE FINALE! A well-fed chat with Kathleen Harper – certified life coach for mamas and author of The Well-Crafted Mom*. We dust off expectations to reveal hope, discuss owning our feelings (and recognizing the root causes), shifting the “shoulds” to wants and wishes, the importance of recharging first before jumping into what will feed your soul, reframing your brain and rescheduling your life and how forming connections with a tribe of mamas reveal more similarities than differences (not to mention, inspires camaraderie and healing):
An igniting chat with Lisa Porter – CEO and founder of The Women’s Coaching Academy and the newly rebranded Spark and Profit coaching company and companion podcast. We discuss starting (or ending) the day with yourself and your needs, the importance of designated work time and family time (and scheduled time off from both!), turning passions and skills into income on your own terms, making a plan (sticking to it not required), letting go of perfection and the magic of just doing it:
