For many women, becoming a mother begins the search and desire for a more meaningful, purposeful, and successful life. But with that desire comes a feeling of not knowing WHAT you want or HOW to get the life you want, all while facing the challenges of raising young children and a demanding career. Using my own experience as a test case, I will share in real-time my path to finding a deeper purpose while balancing motherhood and career. Be prepared for honest insights and a healthy dose of skepticism as I take on uncomfortable exercises, new challenges, and (hopefully) discover a more bold, confident, and successful ME.
