Motherhood is a challenge. Daily. Being shameless is required if you want to build a life and a legacy you love. I am here to give you the tools to bridge the gap between motherhood and living the life of your dreams.

The Top 10 Episodes of 2017

I put together a list of our most downloaded episodes of 2017 and I couldn’t be more excited to share them with you.  I know it can be hard to keep up with alllll the shows that come out in a year, so I thought this would be a great reference for those of you who might want to catch up on the best of the best that you may have missed in 2017.

These Shameless Moms (and one very Shameless Dad!) lit up my year.  In addition to being ridiculously inspired by each of these guests, learned a ton from every one of them.  I am delighted to have these friends and colleagues in my life.  And I am PUMPED to share them with you again.  ENJOY!

Oh, and feel free to share this list with friends you want to introduce to The Shameless Mom Academy.  These shows would be a great place for a new listener to start!
