This week we are talking with Angie Martin.  Angie Martin is mom to two and wife to one. In addition, she is an attorney of 11 years and a Certified Life Purpose and Leadership Coach for Mamas. Her coaching is focused around JOY and her primary goal is to partner with you on your journey to let go of comparisonitis and guilt, and start feeling more confident and secure in who you are as a mom.  Angie shares her struggles with mom comparison, birthing herself as a mom, and the effect of social media on parental confidence.

Listen as Angie shares:

  • She struggles with comparison: comparing herself to other moms.
  • The pervasiveness of mom shaming in our culture.
  • The value of relying on her intuition.
  • How she “balances” work and family life.
  • The intensity of becoming a life coach.
  • Parenting buzz words: are you believing it?
  • Its ok to be you and not fit into a “mom” stereotype.
  • The effect of social media on motherhood.
  • How she was forced to ask for help with her kids.


“I know my inadequacies about my abilities as a mom and as a person, are not based on reality, but it’s hard to control.” – Angie Martin

“It is very easy to default to what’s not going right…but, we forget to look at the evidence that we are doing amazing.” – Angie Martin

“A lot of us are wearing a mask and laughing things off, but not dealing with what’s really underneath.” – Angie Martin

“When you have your babies, you welcomed them into the world, but maybe you haven’t welcomed your current self into the world yet.  You haven’t given birth to yourself, who you are as a mom.” – Angie Martin
