It's been such a beautiful journey discovering all these beautiful women who share our vision, passion, and love for womanhood. Today's episode is no different because we sit down with Amy Cothren, the founder of The Mama Mindset podcast. We had such a good discussion that we lost track of time, but we're sure you'll love it! This episode is filled with nuggets of wisdom and empowerment that all women should hear! Stay tuned!
Amy is a mother of 3 beautiful girls and a wife. She left her dream job a few months after her first daughter was born to be a stay-at-home mom, and never looked back. Without a mentor or a solid community to guide or assist her on this new path, it was up to her to direct her life down the course she wanted it to go. Her passion is to shift the mama mindset, one woman at a time.
The Mama Mindset podcast was born from Amy's passion for creating a growth mindset among moms, and I feel that is the key to leading a fulfilled life. At some point, someone decided women should be talked to softly, kindly, and gently. She says we need to put a stop to all of that.
