It’s July, y’all! On this summer day, my guest is Sara Dean, the creator and host of the Shameless Mom Academy Podcast. I was a guest on her podcast and we became instant friends. In fact, Sara matches me in energy and in talking speed (seriously). And, I am just so happy to have her as my guest this week.

In this episode Sara and I cover a wide range of topics including, how and why she launched The Shameless Mom Academy, walking into fear, and living bigger lives. Plus, we talk all about the power in motherhood. This episode is NOT just for moms! I know even if you don’t have kids, you’ll get a lot out of this interview!

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Sara’s pivot out of the fitness industry and into the launch of Shameless Mom Academy (7 minutes and 15 seconds)
  • Performing well in fear; plus walking into fear and upleveling your life (20:41)
