We have another incredible guest today – Charlotte Avery! We discuss the raw truth about finding balance in life, potty training tips for parents, what it looks like to raise empowered children and prioritizing your romantic relationships.
Before we dig in, I want to send you a reminder that the holidays are a time when a lot of people take their foot off the gas. SO many people carry stress through the holidays and don’t take time to enjoy the season. Take time to move your body, get endorphins flowing, and take 30-40 minutes to shift your mood every morning. My Virtual Gym is open and ready to support you, even during the Holidays!
3:00 From Sports Career to Family Strategist
Charlotte’s life looks nothing like she thought her life would ever look like. Before children, she was working outside of the home and had big expectations for herself. When she became a mom and had her first born, she made the decision that she didn’t want anybody else raising her children. At the point that she was pregnant again, the decision was made to stay home. Over the course of time, she found she was losing herself as a mom.
