Episode 23: Morgan Seaman, This Empowered Mom
Morgan Seaman loved her job, and loved being a working mom. After eight years of balancing work and parenthood, though, she felt like there could be a better way to approach things. Morgan sought coaching and counseling for herself, and that led to the birth of This Empowered Mom.
Women, especially moms, struggle with confidence more than any of us would like to admit. Morgan’s coaching helps moms rediscover their confidence, so they can make the best decisions about career and family. One of our favorite takeaways from this episode is: eliminate the word just from your vocabulary. You’re not just doing a thing, or just a mom. You’re so much more (as we say in our intro, you’re a mom and so much more!).
We talked about naming and owning your superpowers. Oh, you have them, trust us. Morgan has brilliant advice around crafting your story and knowing who you are, superpowers and all. Another favorite moment was the idea of taking a compliment, and embracing it, like the five-year-old you would have.
We’re keeping this a No Spoiler Zone, but you must listen to the section about reframing the shoulds. It’s good stuff. (Around 23:30)
