Do you have a hard time letting go of the relationships that don’t serve you, the labels that restrict you, and the pressure to be the “best” at everything you do?

When was the last time you put YOURSELF above everything else in your life? When was the last time you asked yourself, “what do I really need?”

To get right into the thick of it, without filters, I’ve asked my dear friend Sophie Jaffe to come back on the show. In today’s conversation you’ll hear a real and honest conversation about motherhood, entrepreneurship, breaking up with friends, marriage, releasing ourselves of mama guilt, moving through hard things and so much more.

Tune into this wildly inspiring conversation to get her insights on what to do when you’re faced with an identity crisis, navigating a business and babies and how to do both, how to ask for support, why it’s so important to fill yourself up first, moving through friendship breakups with strength, how she’s moving through hard things (and you can too!), and what it means to live life FULL OUT.
