    I’m addicted to these podcasts already! It’s great to listen while working at my desk. I love to multitask! I love hearing that Kelsey isn’t afraid to chase her dreams & show other women that it’s okay to be more than just a mum. I applaud you both for endless encouragement & success. Can’t wait for the next one!

    Loving this new podcast! I’ve been blogging for eight years, but recently took a sharp left turn and started brand new with a few things and feel like I’m starting ALL over again. Totally inspired by this series.

    How inspirational is she- mom of 4 girls at 26? I am turning 25 this year and no kids yet…can’t imagine having 4. Can barely keep up with my own stuff. Lol- I really want kids though, within a few years. She is very inspiring- some people have this crazy energy to do everything like I wonder where they get it from- it’s so inspirational! Hope I am this motivated with kiddies 🙂
