The Mother Flipping Awesome Podcast
Season 4, The Before & After Series;
Episode 1: From Depletion to Abundance, featuring Tara
In this special series, Abigail focuses on what transformation really looks like for the families she mentors.
In this episode we meet Tara for the second time, having originally been introduced to her in Season 1, Episode 2 of the MFA Podcast.
In that original episode, Tara was filled with doubt and even grief, and now 18 months later we see a changed mother - one filled with confidence and grace. With her journey, Tara shows us what is possible for us all.
This week Abigail speaks with Tara, a mother she interviewed back in Season 1, episode 2 of the Mother Flipping Awesome Podcast. The first episode was recorded at the very beginning of Tara's mentorship program with Abigail, and this one 18 months later, post-graduation. The time between them may be small, but the difference in Tara is immense. For any mother feeling overwhelmed and depleted, this episode will illuminate what it can look like to change the trajectory of your life and aim yourself towards confidence and abundance.
