On the podcast we discuss how having a baby has changed her business and her mindset, as well as her priorities.  We discuss the guilt of motherhood, the need to make art, and the struggle to find identity after baby.  I hope you’ll listen to the podcast and if you like it, tell a friend!

Thanks for stopping by!
