Episode 22: Valerie Friedlander

This week we are chatting with Valerie Friedlander of Unlimited Mom.  Valerie is a mom of two young boys, and certified life coach specializing in helping entrepreneurial Moms break though their self-defeating patterns and take confident action towards their goals.

Listen as Valerie shares how:

  • She differentiates phases vs. being “stuck”
  • Labeling things as “bad” is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • Arguments are important.
  • Where she finds community as both an entrepreneur and mom.
  • Motherhood impacted her relationship with her husband.
  • Intimacy was drastically affected when she became a mom and steps she’s taking to restoring it.
  • She chooses how to show up for herself, kids, and relationship.
