Stephanie chats with Sara Dean from the Shameless Mom Academy about how moms can step into their power and gifts in bigger ways, how they can cultivate a deeper sense of self-trust, and how all this creates space for us to train people how to treat us. They share how to have more powerful conversations with others, lower the unreasonably high expectations we have about what we can accomplish (especially now during the pandemic) and all be a little more shameless.

Enjoy the listen! You can find us on iTunes, Stitcher or Spotify. We’d love to hear your thoughts on Instagram or Facebook.

Topics Discussed:

  • What it means to be a shameless mom
  • Why asking for help is a gift you give to others
  • How to identify if you’re being a mommy martyr
  • How we can use our voice more powerfully and make requests
  • How “B- work” can give you more space and time
  • How to outsource work to be your best self
  • How leading with curiosity and compassion can reduce defensiveness
  • How we can all be a little more shameless

Show Notes:

Sara Dean is a transformation coach, community builder, speaker, and host of the Shameless Mom Academy Podcast, a top-rated podcast with over 2 million downloads where she inspires women to stop shrinking and start shining in all aspects of their lives. After enduring her own identity crisis following the birth of her son, Sara took her background in psychology, health, and wellness and rebuilt her identity, one step at a time. When she’s not serving women inside of her thriving Momentum Mamas membership community, her Tenacious Mamas business & leadership mastermind and her annual event, Shameless Mom Con, you can find Sara with her husband and 7-year-old son, building Legos and pretending to understand Pokemon.

 Show Notes

Ara Katz is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Seed Health, a microbial sciences company pioneering applications of bacteria to impact human and environmental health. Their foundry model partners with leading scientists to translate breakthrough science into live biotherapeutics and innovations for consumer health with a portfolio targeting conditions where bacteria can become or replace the primary standard of care.

Its environmental R+D division, SeedLabs, taps bacteria to solve some of the biggest challenges facing our collective home.

Translation: Seed is disrupting the BS in the $50B global probiotics market and stewarding the future of how we will use bacteria to restore and sustain human (think: gut, skin, oral, vaginal, and more) and planetary (think: honey bees, soil, water, food supply, plastics crisis, and space) health with serious science.

Ara is a serial entrepreneur, dot-connector, first-principles thinker, and lifelong questioner. She combines an incessant pursuit of truth with her translational storytelling ability to steward the future of science communication—and change the way we discern evidence versus evangelism in making choices for our bodies, our health, and our world.
