Dr Kate Dow (PhD) grew up surrounded by anxiety, it was inherent in her home life as a child and seemed to be an integral part of who she was.

Not surprising then, that when she became a mum at the age of 35, anxiety hit her hard. It was understandable. Her children were born just 13 months apart and she was caught in a difficult marriage which later fell apart. Kate ended up raising her two children - who are now 18 and 19 - as a single parent and was constantly gripped by anxiety.

But Kate didn't want this life and worked hard to combat and overcome her fears. She's devoted her life to supporting women, especially mums, through her multidisciplinary, heart-centered approach. She's a successful Mind-Body Psychologist, Consultant, and Empowerment Coach and the author of the book Fear-Less: The Art of Using Anxiety to your Advantage.

In this episode, we talk about how prevalent anxiety is amongst mums, and how anxiety can negatively spread through your world in a downwards spiral. You'll understand how anxiety impacts you and learn how to notice the signs of it showing up in your life. Kate's 'Fear-Less' approach has been created specifically for women, and through it, you'll discover how to transform your anxiety.

It's easy to look at Anna Parker-Naples' hugely successful life and think that some people were born lucky. Many times has she walked the glittering red carpet of Hollywood during her Voice-Acting career. She's also an Award-Winning Audiobook Narrator and has worked with hundreds of best-selling titles and authors. To top it off, she now runs a thriving online business helping mums around the world.

Inspiring Mummy Club is an award-winning self-development membership for mums. It provides positivity, support, and personal development tools and techniques to enable mums to reclaim some time for themselves, so they can focus on their dreams, their ambitions and their sense of self.  She does this by using meditation, mindfulness, mindset, hypnosis and visualisation tools so mums can start living a happier, more balanced life.

But what amazes me most about Anna, is that in the thick of it all, she became wheel-chair bound. As a result of a problem during her third pregnancy, she was told she would never walk again. Times were hard. Her eldest child had just started school and she had a toddler and baby at home. Anna endured the long and gruelling process moving from the inevitable negativity to finding a new path, but through positive thinking, she defied all odds and started to walk again.

Today Anna shares her incredible story, and how she turned around her feeling of despair to pull herself back, start a new life and inspire other mothers along the way.

Since she was  a young girl, Alex Miles always had a passion for writing. Before having children, she worked as a script writer for Neighbours; was a ghost writer for Zac Power, the popular secret-agent series for boys; and published her first book under her own name, Sixty Secrets for a Happy Bride.

Alex landed a dream contract for her Starring Olive Black children’s books, being asked to write four in the series. Having small children is all consuming, but at the same time, Alex didn’t want to give up a golden opportunity that she’s been working towards for a decade. Letting this go could be a decision she’d always regret, so she bit the bullet and said yes.

In this episode, we talk about how Alex achieved the enormous undertaking of writing four books in just 16 months when her eldest son was a toddler, and she was pregnant with her next. We discuss how to get your partner on board  with your passion and the importance of good communication. We look at the practical elements – how to get that volume of work done with children around, why being organised is essential to success, and the importance of having a supportive tribe of like-minded people around you. We delve into the opportunities that open themselves up to us as mums, as well as the inevitable challenges you face when you mix following your dream with motherhood.

Alex has successfully combined her passion for writing with being the mum of two children under three. Today she shares how she achieves it, so get ready to be inspired and motivated by her incredible story.

Like many mums, Lucy Parsons didn’t want to return to her full time job as a high school teacher once her children came along. But she also couldn't find a fulfilling part time job that fitted around her kids, aged 8 and 6. So she looked at the online world.

As a straight 'A' Cambridge (UK) graduate, Lucy decided to pursue the thing that she was best at in the world; passing exams. But how can being good at passing exams help you create the dream of having a thriving online business, and still be there to pick up your kids from school? Well, Lucy is testament that anything is possible if you want it badly enough.

Lucy became an Academic Coach and started Life More Extraordinary where she empowers ambitious students to get the top grades in their exams and into their first choice of university.

In this episode Lucy shares the key components to her success. Structure, discipline and making sure she cares for her own needs before ever pulling out her laptop. Lucy teaches you the importance of structuring your time and not frittering it away, whilst at the same time not allowing your self-imposed goals to overwhelm you. She explains how she came to realise that the most important thing in her day is self care and how she disciplines herself to make sure she fits it in.

Lucy knows that the most important task is the one that will move you forward the fastest and that outsourcing things that aren't her strengths makes her happy. By being savvy with how she plans her work, she's able to spend maximum time with her family as a result.

Lucy thought having a life doing the things that she dreamed of as a child was reserved for the 'chosen few'. Now she knows that you can have it all, and today she'll show you how to make it happen.
