Today, I’m republishing an episode with my dear friend, youth advocate, internet crusader and incredible human, Collin Kartchner, which was originally recorded in April of 2018. I’m putting this back out in the world with a little bit of commentary and whole lot of love.
Collin’s message and mission touched hundreds of thousands around the world as he taught parents to connect with their kids in this digital age, fought against the dangers of social media and spread the joy of 8 second hugs. I will never know the reason he was taken so soon, but I will continue to be inspired by his passion and support his mission in every way I can.
He wanted parents to wake up to the dangers that surround our kids and families. No one will ever fill his red Nike shoes, but I have listed below some accounts and organizations who are also spreading messages of hope and healing. I’ve also linked to Collin’s 2018 Tedx talk and his podcast. Please get educated and inspired and let your voice be heard. This is a fight worth fighting! #savethekids #savetheparents #forcollin.

In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Dana Malstaff, the original Boss-Mom and discussing all things Boss-Mom! She talks about how you can have great success in family life and business and what that actually looks like. We talk about what it takes to manage both of these important priorities without feeling bad about it and she gives great advice to new entrepreneurs on sticking with it, even when it seems like no one really cares.
I love how she deals with hate mail and negativity and the legacy she hopes to leave for her children. And, it’s really fun to hear about how this successful woman starts her day. Her answer might surprise you.
