Flushing It Out with Samantha Spittle, the Introvert's Extrovert. She talks to people so you don't have to...for now.
This week, Samantha talks with business owner and mother of 3, Julie Nicholson Burke. Motherhood was much more difficult for Julie than she ever imagined it to be. Her oldest son has been challenging to raise, and then she also has twins. So, when it came to running a business, she had to have patience. This wasn’t being carried over to her kids, though. She didn’t have patience for them the way she did for her business. Her daughter reminded her that “we’re just small,” which was a harsh reminder that she needed to rethink how she treated her kids. The lessons you can learn in business can be applied to personal life and vice versa. Everybody is always looking for the “secret sauce” for their business, but it always comes back to you being your own secret sauce. Customers come back to you because you are the “secret sauce.” As a mom, she needs to be the “secret sauce” for her children, too. She doesn’t want her children to look back at their childhood and think, “mom yelled a lot.” Listen in for more parenting knowledge as Samantha and Julie "Flush It Out!"
Samantha sits down to talk with Rebecca Burtram about the origins of the podcast, why potty humor can be an invitation to genuine connection and vulnerability and how we can cope with feelings of being enough.
