There’s a saying: if mama ain’t happy, nobody is happy. One of the worst things in the world is a miserable mom - for her AND for everyone around her. 

Denise Hamilton launched WatchHerWork, a digital platform that understands that when moms are happy, they can do amazing things and is working to close the achievement gap for professional women. She also has 25 years of executive professional experience in Fortune 100 companies, small businesses, and educational institutions, and is a highly sought after speaker and coach.

In this episode, we’re talking about the struggle of working moms trying to balance work, family, and personal needs, how we can support the authentic needs of women, and why we need to stop focusing on fixing our weaknesses and instead name and own our genius.

If you struggle with trying to juggle it all and need a reminder that it’s ok to say no, this is an episode you cannot afford to miss.
