Every mom struggles with the pressure to be present and connected while also excelling in our businesses. 

We all want to have it all, but honestly, it can leave us feeling like a rubber band being pulled way too thin. That nagging feeling creeps in – are we doing enough for our families or our careers?

How do we figure out our limits and make peace with the fact that we can’t do it all? Can we switch up our mindset a bit?

In this episode, GM of Innovation at SamCart Olivia Herron joins me to talk about how to shift from a martyr mindset, why we need to be okay with not having control all the time and why it’s okay to have off days. We also talk about the aspirations outside of being a mother.

Not everything requires you to be in control. -Olivia Heron
