This week Heather Vickery of Vickery & Co and the Podcast, the Brave Files shares how she is a mother of four who cherishes the time she has left before they leave the nest, how navigating a difficult time allowed her to be open to asking and accepting help, and how she chooses to live her truth each and every day.  Heather Vickery is an award-winning entrepreneur, business owner, and transformational life and business coach. Heather’s world turned upside down after a major life transformation and divorce, suddenly, she had the freedom to be her most authentic self. She discovered that this same authenticity empowered her with the confidence she needed to repair, rebuild, and reach her life’s vision and goals.

Listen as Heather shares how she:

  • Came out after being married and having four children.
  • Learned to ask for and accept help during her time of need.
  • Navigates mothering her children through her divorce.
  • Relinquishes control and let’s her children make choices.
  • Uses bedtime as a time to reconnect individually with each of her children.
  • Institutes boundaries to preserve herself and priorities.
  • Eliminated the word “should” and “need” from her vocabulary and focuses on the want.
  • Gives herself grace and forgiveness.
