Episode 35: Danielle Bettmann
Our guest this week is an early childhood specialist. Wait! We know you’re here for mom-related content, and we guarantee this episode brings it.
Danielle Bettmann puts her whole heart into her work. Her company is even named Wholeheartedly.

As moms, we often put ourselves last. Danielle encourages finding what makes you, you. She helped us look at the concept of following passions as something productive, and necessary, rather than as a luxury.
(And as a little bonus, Danielle basically provided us with a mini-counseling session during which we both had revelations that will help us in moving forward. Wooohooo!)
