Embracing Motherhood in Every Season with Kristina Kuzmič

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 49

Are you being super honest with yourself? Are you hiding your truth?

If you are hiding who you truly are you’ll never able to heal. This is the advice that our guest today gives. Kristina Kuzmič says that you won’t escape other people’s judgment … so stop trying to. Leave behind what people think of you and say about you and take care of your sanity, yourself and your kids.

Then go a step further and be kind to yourself. Leave the negative self talk behind by asking yourself … would you talk to a friend like that?

These are two key elements that allow you to embrace motherhood, yourself and your truth. Let’s dive into this encouraging conversation with Kristina.

About Kristina:

Embracing-motherhood-in-every-season-with-kristina-kuzmic

Thirteen years ago, Kristina Kuzmič (that’s KOOZ-mich; it’s Croatian), was a broke and defeated mother of two; recently divorced; juggling jobs and sleeping on the floor next to her kids. She never imagined that a lo-fi cooking show she pieced together to reach other moms in the trenches would get Oprah’s attention. Today, she speaks directly to her 2.8 million Facebook followers in honest, funny parenting videos on topics from “Mind your own Motherhood” to a satirical PSA “4 Reasons women should NEVER breastfeed in public.” Her star is rapidly rising, and she recently took her message of acceptance and resilience on the road to 22 sold-out cities. Her witty, knowing, and sympathetic voice is captured on the page in her first book HOLD ON, BUT DON’T HOLD STILL: Hope and Humor from My Seriously Flawed Life.

Episode 29

Ditching Self Sabotage to Fully Love Life with Veronica Cisneros

 

Today’s episode is a conversation with Veronica Cisneros.

Veronica Cisneros is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, motivational speaker, and queen hostess of transformational women’s retreats. Through these retreats, Veronica helps women answer the question: “how did I lose me?” She lovingly calls out insecurities and doubts and teaches women to challenge them for what they are, a mythical assault to their true femininity.

When it comes to stepping outside of your comfort zone, Veronica is your best bet. Yet, she ensures that, by stepping out, women are able to experience true transformational change; uncovering the inner goddess and, let’s be honest, bad ass, they’ve always been. Veronica helps women truly become empowered and unapologetic’ through unique challenges and personalized coaching.

It comes as no surprise, then, that Veronica is also CEO (a.k.a queen hustler) of Empowered and Unapologetic; a hardcore ‘girl gang’ of women aggressively supporting each other on Facebook. Her focus is to continue to expand this community, filled with authentic women who know their worth and who are unapologetic about putting themselves first. Veronica’s true aspiration is to help multitudes of women learn how to let go of perfectionism and, instead, face their emotional wounds and insecurities.
