In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’re going on an adventure. Back in time to the 18th Century where we follow the extraordinary story of a mother of yesteryear. If Mary Wollstonecraft was around today, she would be considered a pretty normal mum. But back then her actions and choices caused plenty of tut-tutting and twitching curtains, and her bad reputation preceded her.

My guest today is SuperMum Bee Rowlatt.

Bee is a writer, journalist and broadcaster who has worked for the BBC for over two decades. She’s a regular contributor to the Daily Telegraph, and the author of several books including ‘In Search of Mary’ which we’ll be talking about today. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, she also has four children aged between 6 and 15. Bee, her husband and four kids moved from London to New Delhi a couple of years ago in search of their next life-experience.

In a moment of ‘mum-life crisis’ and sick of the endless piles of laundry, Bee whisked up her 10 month old son and set off on an extraordinary adventure in search of the life and legacy of Mary Wollstonecraft, the first celebrity feminist.

In her quest to find a new balance between careers and babies, Bee also discovered the importance of celebrating the radiant power of love in all our lives.

In discussing motherhood in the 1790’s, Bee brings the joys, challenges and craziness of being a mum right back into the 21st Century. We talk about ‘having it all’ as a mum; the influence of culture on your experience as a mum; and creating adventure in your life despite the restrictions of motherhood.

Bee is the most down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is, frank, honest and open mum I’ve had on the show, and I know you’re gonna love her. So hold on to your hats, we’re going on an adventure!

Nov 23, 2016

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be discovering how to set the burning desire in your belly ablaze.

As a busy mum with competing demands and limited time you often feel torn and pulled in different directions. You pour out so much of yourself, your emotions, your energy into your family. It can feel like you’re carrying so much, but at the same time being ‘unproductive’ in the world’s eyes, despite wanting to make your mark.

But we’re going to give you another perspective.

My guest today is SuperMum Kate Greenstock

Kate, her husband, and their three children, who are 13, 11 and 7, live near Richmond Park in Greater London where she loves to breathe, cycle and deer stalk. Transitioning from a calling-the-shots career woman, to being a mother with no rule book to follow, proved to be more of a challenge than Kate expected.

But she found a solution, and along with it, her calling to help other mothers who were also feeling lost in motherhood.

At Wild Rubies, Kate helps mums to feel like they’re truly living, rather than just existing; re-discovering themselves and re-imagining their work lives in the process​.

If you’re tired of being seen as just a worker or just a mother, Kate will help you find a way forward. Then you get to be seen by the world full and whole, and in creative technicolour.

Kate gives you permission to ​take the space to breathe ​and​​ ​find the clarity ​needed ​to set your eyes on what’s ahead for you.

I’m so excited to welcome Kate to my show because she will teach you to be more like your children – incomplete, imperfect, curious, daring, outrageous and completely loved – and in doing so, fuel that fire in your belly.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about how to discover, understand and use your true strengths. As women we’re often quick to identify our weaknesses, but are much more reserved when it comes to seeking out our strengths. The thing is, if we can play to our strengths and see them as our superpowers, we can use them to our advantage.

My guest today is SuperMum Nikki Smith

Nikki is a Psychologist and Career Coach, and the mum of two daughters who are 7 and 4. She’s a keen surfer loves to catch the waves at the beach near her home in Barwon Heads in Australia.

In her work, Nikki focuses on helping her clients get to know their true strengths and encourages them to leverage those strengths to transform their work life into something that they’re passionate about.

In todays show, Nikki teaches us that your true strengths are activities that energise you, and that you find ease with. The great thing about understanding your strengths, is that you can employ them in all areas areas of your life, including your role as mum.

When you discover your strengths, you gain clarity, confidence and momentum in your life; and when you play to them, you double your productivity, resilience and creativity.

I’m really excited to talk to Nikki today because she will help you understand your strengths and in doing so, discover the best possible you.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about abundance. Often in life, we’re bombarded with messages of scarcity, so much so, you might start to feel the optimism, hope and belief in yourself starting to drain away. But don’t despair, because it is possible to make a shift to the abundance mindset where you stay positive, keep smiling, and have your eyes wide open to all the possibilities, freedom and choice you deserve.

My guest today is SuperMum Julie Ann Cairns

Julie, a former economist for the Reserve Bank of Australia lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and 12 year old daughter. She’s been working in the finance and wealth-creation industry for over 25 years and has taught more than 10,000 people how to create wealth and trade the international financial markets.

Her financial knowledge, alongside her own personal story of both making, and loosing fortunes, lead her to write, produce and direct her own documentary film called The Abundance Code which we’ll be talking about today.

The Abundance Code brings together over a dozen experts to bring you practical tips and inspiration to stay out of scarcity and keep moving into abundance. To connect and create. To collaborate instead of competing. To find purpose and meaning in your life instead of feeling lost, confused and alone.

I’m so happy to welcome Julie to the show today because she will inspire you to transform yourself and your life, and empower you to live an abundant life free from limiting beliefs.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about the value of planning when you have kids. Now I know organising your everyday life – creating routines, setting up systems, sorting your cupboards – may seem time-consuming and dull, but stay with me on this one, because seriously, it’s a gift that keeps on giving.

My guest today is SuperMum Nicole Avery

Nicole lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and five gorgeous kids ranging from 7 to 17 years old. She more than most knows the importance of organising the chaos of family life, and by pulling together her business know-how, hands of experience as the mum of five, and the things she’s learned from other families to bring us ‘Planning with Kids’. She’s written a book by the same, is a sought-after speaker, and has created a blog, a podcast, a menu planner app, an e-course called ‘Planning and Present’.

Today Nicole will teach us why careful planning acts as a safety blanket in our life as a busy mum. Mess and disorganisation brings and extra layer of stress to our lives and so planning for the known components of family life means you are better able to cope with the whole host of unknowns that family life constantly throws up at you.

Nicole leads by example because although she has a tribe of kids and a busy family life, as well as running a business, she still finds time to run marathons and carves out relaxed and fun time with her children.

I’m really grateful that Nicole has agreed to talk to us today because she will share with us the simple way to plan ahead, get organised and find your me time.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be finding out how to put your child’s well-being first in a competitive world. By doing so, you’ll get permission to take your foot off the gas and reclaim a more relaxed family life.

My guest today is SuperMum, Tanith Carey.

Tanith is an award-winning journalist and writes for many of the major UK broadsheets. She’s a best-selling parenting author of seven books, and has appeared on the major UK morning shows as a parenting expert. Tanith and her husband live in London with their two daughters who are 11 and 14.

Today we’ll be taking to Tanith about her critically-acclaimed book called ‘Taming the Tiger Parent: How to Put Your Child’s Well-Being First in a Competitive World’.

From the moment the umbilical cord is cut, today’s parents often feel trapped in a never-ending race to ensure their child is the brightest and the best. Mozart in the womb, Baby Einstein DVDs for newborns, and learning apps for toddlers is just the beginning. And while it’s completely natural for us to want our kids to reach their potential, at what point does too much competition become damaging not only to our children, but to us as mums?

In this episode, we’ll explore the effects that competitive parenting has on us as women, how the extra work load of out-of-school activities is affecting us, and the impact it’s having on our relationships with our partner, our children and our family life.

Tanith will help us examine more closely the choices we make for our children’s free time, and look at it from a bigger picture perspective. She helps us question whether, in trying to do the absolute best by our children, we might actually be creating unnecessary problems for ourselves and them.

I’m overjoyed to have Tanith with me on the podcast today, because she can teach us so much about how to tame our inner tiger parent which will free up more time for the things that really matter.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be finding out how to re-balance our busy lives as mums with the use of self-care. It’s so very important, because when a woman feels alive and whole and connected to her essence, she’s unstoppable.

My guest today is SuperMum, Renée Trudeau.

Renée lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and teenage son and is an internationally-recognised life balance coach and speaker. She’ also the president of Career Strategists, an award-winning coaching and consulting firm and her corporate clients include Fortune 500 companies such as Dell, Ernst & Young and IBM.

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing how to create the strength of mind of an athlete to use in your life as a mum which will help to create balance and harmony in your busy world.

My guest today is SuperMum, Sara Robinson.

Sara has two small boys aged 4 and 1, has a Masters Degree in Sports Psychology and is a Mental Skills Coach. After learning first hand how hard it is to juggle everything that comes with the job title of Mum, Sara worked out the solution and went on to launch ‘Get Mom Balanced’ an online community of mums.

In her work, Sara brings together her professional skills and knowledge helping athletes, plus her experience as a mum, to help other busy mums create balance and develop the mental skills needed to survive and thrive in motherhood.

Today Sara will teach us why Mental Skills Training is so beneficial, and gives us some practical tools that we can use to strengthen our minds as mums. And I don’t know about you, but some days I need some of that in extra large doses.

Sara will help us understand why it’s important to look under our own bonnet, to find where our own passions and interests lie. We can then use that as a springboard to find out what makes us tick and then harness that to create a life that we love. A life that’s fulfilling to us as a woman, instead of simply fulfilling the needs of everyone else all the time.

I’m excited that Sara is joining us today because she’s passionate about helping mums to seek balance and give them support for the challenges of mom life. And I’m confident that she’ll help you too.

Oct 16, 2016

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be discussing a research study that is currently being conducted into the well-being of mothers of pre-school aged children.

My guest today is SuperMum, Lauren Wills.

Lauren has an 8 year old daughter, and a son who is 5, and is a Life Coach for Mums. She’s passionate about helping women reclaim their inner spark and live a life they love.

Lauren has a Master of Social Work from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and is currently a PhD candidate studying the well-being of pre-school mothers.

In her work, Lauren has discovered that there’s a tremendous amount of research into the institution of motherhood, but sadly, we often don’t get to hear about it.

But she’s determined to change that, because Lauren believes that when more information is readily available to us mothers, we’ll stop feeling like our problems are exclusively ours, or that we have to work out a solution and deal with those challenges by ourselves.

Lauren’s research has shown that a mother’s well-being has a more positive an impact on her child than her education, her employment, the number of hours her child spends in day care or any other factors. Read that again. It’s really significant.

I’m excited that Lauren is joining us today to share her knowledge and findings, and in doing so, gives us the kick-start we need to start prioritising our own well-being.

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is about managing the inevitable stress that goes hand-in-hand with being a busy mum. We’ve all felt it when the demands build up and up to the point where they overwhelm us.

My guest today is SuperMum, Kate Snowise.

New Zealand born Kate lives in Houston, Texas with her husband and their two small boys who are 4 and 2. Despite writing her Masters thesis on stress and wellbeing, Kate readily admits that being a parent is the toughest job she’s ever had.

Before becoming a mum, Kate was a Corporate Psychologist and started her own business as a Life and Executive Coach after being a stay-at-home mum for two years.

Kate will help us identify what stress is in simple terms, how we can recognise whether it’s building up within us to the point where it might be a problem, and how we can eliminate the inevitable stress that seems to be integral to our lives as a busy mum.

Kate’s fusion of professional knowledge, her education in the field of Positive Psychology, and the hands on practical experience she’s gained from the trenches of motherhood, makes her the perfect person to help us understand and combat the stress we deal with as mothers.

I’m so pleased that Kate has joined us today because her advice really will help you to eradicate stress and make a big difference in your life making it happier and healthier.

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is about having self confidence in your ability as a mum.

SuperMum Barbara Liquorish is mum to 5 year old James and 2 year old William, and although she freely admits she doesn’t always gets it right, she has a deeply ingrained believe in her ability to succeed.

16 years as a mental care nurse has given Barbara insights and first hand knowledge of people who are vulnerable and desperate, but she’s taken the experience, knowledge and observations of her work and transferred them to her life as a mother.

In this episode you’ll discover why Barbara doesn’t use parenting books, but instead looks closely at what’s under her nose to find the right answers. She talks about how we mums can figure out what the right course of action is, despite the huge amount of information that is available to us. And we discuss why in our generation, we can often feel isolated as a mum, and left alone to work it out the whole motherhood thing for ourselves.

I love that Barbara is such a confident parent. I love that she won’t be bullied. I love that she holds onto her own core values and has a real understanding of herself, and that she puts that into her parenting.

I know that you’ll love listening to her insights on the show today.

True teams are made when you put aside individual wants for collective good.

That quote certainly sums up my Mum-to-mum Monday guests today.

SuperMum, Angie-Newby Stubbs and her husband Ian Hunt have been together for 14 years and have two adorable daughters aged 8 and 2.

Angie and Ian both work in the construction industry. Angie as a designer, and Ian an architectural designer.

This time last year, Angie and Ian agreed to make a radical role change when Angie returned to work full time and became the family breadwinner and Ian took on the role of caring for their children and managing the home.

Listen in to find out why they made this decision, the effects it’s had on them as a couple and a family, and how things are working out one year on.

If you’re a regular listener of The Friday Café, you might just recognise today’s guest on Mum-to-Mum Monday.

Earlier this year, SuperMum, Michelle Dawson and her husband Nick attended ‘Unleash the Power Within’ in London, a four day conference hosted by Tony Robbins, the incredible American motivational speaker and self-development author.

Tony and his team tour all four corners of the globe each year with the event, and bring about huge life changes to the thousands of guests that attend his conferences.

And if you haven’t heard of ‘Unleash the Power Within’, you’ll certainly have heard about his famous Firewalk, where attendees walk barefoot over white hot coals. It’s a symbolic experience that proves if you can make it through the fire, you can make it through anything.

Well, Michelle and her husband Nick, who had two boys aged 4 and 2 at the time went along in April this year when Michelle was 5 months pregnant with Rafferty who was born last month in August.

Like so many others, the experience changed their lives dramatically, and Michelle is here today to share her incredible story.

And so impressed was I by Michelle in her interview, and her attitude to her life as a mother, I invited her to co-host The Friday Café each week. I love that this episode will give you an opportunity to get to know her a bit better.

Listen now to find out whether Michelle did the Firewalk literally whilst barefoot and pregnant.

Sep 12, 2016

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about fulfilling your goals and ambitions – the key word being fulfilling. That’s right, we take those dreams right out of your head and make them come alive.

My guest today is SuperMum, Victoria Kate. Vicky and her 9 year old son Finley live just a stone’s throw from the beautiful beach in Bournemouth, on the south coast of England.

Vicky is living proof that our dreams really can come true as she follows her life long passion to work for herself as a Life Coach whilst looking out from her desk to the sea. And after 24 years of having the dream of being an author in her head, she is finially writing the book that she’s always wanted.

Today, Vicky will ‘give your heart eyes’, as she so eloquantly puts it. One of the foundation stones to this is learning to understand what your goals really are and making them your own.

Not what your family, or your partner or society think your goals should be. Just you.

This way, when you attain them, you’ll finally be truely fufilled, rather than left cold and wanting the next big thing.

Through the use of positive thinking and visual images Vicky will step us through the process of how to be successful in achieving everything our heart desires, and not be restricted by limiting beliefs.

Using the metaphore of a lighthouse, Vicky will teach us how, as a mother, it’s important to keep our own light shining strong and bright so we can light the way for our children rather than casting dark shadows behind us and letting them find their own way.

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about putting the sparkle back into your marriage.

When you first met your partner, life was so much fun. So carefree. So spontaneous. You could jump in the car and catch a movie at a moment’s notice. You could go out for dinner on a whim. You could stay up late, drink too much wine and not have to worry about getting up early in the morning.

You love your husband, but since your kids arrived and life got busy, your marriage isn’t as much fun as it used to be.

That’s why I invited SuperMum Shawn Fink onto my show. Shawn is mum to 10 year old twin girls, a family wellness coach for mothers around the world, the author of ‘The Playful Family’ and ‘The Abundant Mama’s guide to Savoring Slow’ and the founder of The Abundant Mother Project which inspires mothers to find their happy place so they can raise happy, thriving children in a peaceful home environment.

From her own personal experinece, Shawn realises how hard it is to maintain a marriage while raising kids and keeping a home running day after day. You can feel isolated and alone because between all the to-dos and deadlines and the children’s needs and phases there really isn’t much time left at the end of each day for anything, let alone your relationship.

But Shawn teaches us that with a change in our mindset, a shift in our interpersonal habits and by looking at our communication we can gain a deeper understanding of each other and have a marriage that thrives. A happy marriage filled with joy, fun, connection and teamwork.

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about managing to eat nutritious food in spite of being rushed off your feet.

Now, I’ll be honest with you, but whenever I hear anything about healthy eating, my eyes start to glaze over. I’m not sure why, because I’m a complete foodie. I love to cook, I love healthy natural ingredients, heck, I even like grocery shopping.

But that whole healthy eating monologue I find, well…. kinda dull.

That was, until I met Mandie Spooner. Mandie is a Nutritional Therapist, living in the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. Mandie brings a special sparkle to eating great food, and she doesn’t even mention quinoa, or chickpeas.

You’ll love this show because Mandie teaches us about how we can incorporate more broccoli into our busy life in a fun and informative way.

And the best bit? Mandie even gives you permission to eat CAKE!

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about overcoming the challenges of the early years. We’ve all been there, your baby won’t stop crying, smelly nappies need changing, toddlers having meltdowns in the middle of the supermarket, negotiating red shoes versus blue shoes with your three year old and all topped off with a copious sprinkling of sleepless nights.

It’s a really busy time, and as mums we can often end up feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. But don’t despair because my guest today will help you see through the fog.

SuperMum, Libby Lennon and her husband have three busy boys aged 6, 3 and 2, and for a while there, they had three children under four. Libby’s eldest son started school this year, which is the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. It adds a new dynamic with getting out of the house on time in the morning and she still has two pre-schoolers and a part time job to contend with.

Despite all the balls that Libby keeps in the air, and the huge volume of work that she faces every single day, she does it with a spring in her step and a positive attitude. Libby has such a bright and energetic soul, and I know you’ll love her.

Even if you’ve come out of the chaos of the pre-school years, Libby is well worth listening to, because you can nod in agreement and say, ‘I remember it well’.

Libby’s really frank and honest about the challenges that the early years throw at you, but she gives us her own real life examples plus the actionable steps that she took. Amongst the chaos, she’s managed her own needs in the scraps of spare time that she’s able to scrape together.

By being personally fulfilled and happy, Libby’s better able to serve her family. Because of this, she’s successfully been able to stay positive, manage her mindset, and in years to come she’ll be able to look back at these intense early years with fondness because she’s genuinely enjoying the journey.

If you’re feeling apprehensive about returning to work after a period of time off with your children, this show is for you.

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about returning to work after being on maternity leave and the challenges and concerns that mother’s face now they have to take responsibility for not only their child, but their career.

Today’s guest is SuperMum, Lucy Pollard.

Lucy is wife to Chris and mother of Charlie who is 3. Lucy works for a leading investment bank in the City of London and part of her role involves leading workshops called ‘Returning with Impact’ to help women intergrate back into the workforce after being on maternity leave.

The brilliant thing about what Lucy has to share today is that it can be applied irrespective of the length of time you’ve been out of the work force. It might be that you’ve stayed at home with your kids throughout the pre-school years and and beyond.

So whether you’ve been away for 6 months or 6 years you’re going to be hanging onto Lucy’s every word becuase what she has to tell us is massively useful and relevant, whatever stage you’re at.

Lucy has some real gems of wisdom to share with us today, for example, she gives us some actionable steps on how you can remind yourselves just how good you are professionally to really boost your confidence. She talks about how to free up precious time and get things off your to do list so you don’t feel bogged down by tasks. And this one you’ll love, Lucy not only gives us the green light to have some ‘me’ time but acually argues that it should be manditory to keep our sanity. Lucy will also teach you how you can realisically hit the ground running when you re-enter the workforce WITHOUT working late or stressing out about playing catch with the time you have lost. She also talks about how setting expectations on day one is the key to success in the long term.

In this very first episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, you’ll find out about the life of an ordinary mum, thick in the trenches of motherhood and dealing with the highs and lows that come with the job title of mum.

My ‘guest’ today is SuperMum, Lisa York. Yep, that’s me!

English born, I live in Canberra, Australia with my husband Bernard, sons Fred (6), Alex (5) and Benny (4) and daughter Elizabeth (2). My husbands Navy job takes us all over the world and we moved to Australia in January 2016 after living in London for three years. Next, who knows where.

Passionate that the traditional definition of a SuperMum is flawed, I’m on a one-mum-mission to change it. I mean, really. It’s impossible to impeccably keep so many balls in the air at once, hold it all together and never shout at your kids.

But finding out my son had leukaemia just days before his third birthday was a life-changer. And it gave me confidence to shout from the rooftops that a positive attitude is all you need to be a SuperMum.

Easier said than done I agree. But in this episode, you’ll find out how to begin on that journey as I weave it into my own personal story of having four children in four years and eight months.

Get to know me, my life as a mum, my positive mindset, and how The SuperMum Podcast came about. And I’ll teach you the single most important thing about being an incredible mum and how to go about achieving it.

I’m so excited to share my story with you today. It’s about mindset. The super highs and the crippling lows. It’s about motherhood in real-time. Warts and all.
