Hello there. Welcome.

I’m so glad you are here. Come on in, kick off your shoes and make yourself comfortable.

My podcast is currently on hiatus so I can focus more of my time and energy on my family and my work with private clients, but there are well over 10 hours of inspiring interviews to enjoy here.

Episode 13 :: Lisa Work

by eringoodman on January 17, 2013

Lisa Work of Visionary Mom is my beloved web designer. (New site update coming soon!)  She has at various times and in various wonderful ways been my coach / mentor. And I am absolutely delighted that I get to call her my friend.

In this episode, Lisa and I talk divorce, starting over, going back to college (at almost 40), public school, self-esteem, money, turning a hobby into a business and making peace with people unsubscribing from your e-mail list.

(Plus a whole lot of other good stuff.)

This episode was recorded earlier this week and is just over 45 minutes long.

Lisa Work believes in dreams. And laughter. And love.

In magical possibilities. And being nice.

And truth. And the courage it takes to tell our own truths.

She’s all about helping as many moms as possible to rock their lives, make some rally cool shit happen, and become the women they dream of being.
