Laurie James is a mother, caregiver, and divorcée turned author and transformative coach. She wrote the book Sandwiched: A Memoir of Holding On and Letting Go, and she joins me today to share her story in the hopes that we can all learn from her experience.

Listen in as Laurie describes what it was like to struggle to “do it all” while her ideal life and family crumbled around her, the epiphany she had that changed everything for her, and the importance of understanding our worth as human beings.

Motherhood is hard, and Laurie gives some great advice for those listening who may be struggling with their own motherhood journey, so get comfortable and listen in to Laurie’s message about getting unstuck and finding the life you belong to.
