So many moms struggle with their identity after having kids, and not many know what to do with that shift. It comes with a shift in values, purpose, and time, and many moms get stuck in a spiral of not knowing who they are and how to align with the various roles they have in their life. In this episode, I talk with Sara Dean, who is host of the well known podcast Shameless Mom Academy, about her journey into finding her balance, personally and professionally. What started as a career in the fitness industry, Sara pivoted to podcasting and coaching, in which she went from guiding women how to get smaller, to supporting them in living fully, unapologetically taking up space and learning to create the life they want to be living. We cover everything from identity struggle, parenting during Covid, overcoming the shame narrative, and the harsh reality of time flying. If you’re mom, this episode is for you.


About Sara: Sara Dean is mindset, business and leadership coach. She is also the creator and host of the Shameless Mom Academy Podcast, a top rated podcast with over 3.5 million downloads. Sara’s biggest passion is helping women own their space. After enduring her own identity crisis following the birth of her son, Sara took her background in psychology/health/ wellness and rebuilt her identity, one step at a time. Sara motivates and inspires women to stop shrinking and start shining. She is on a mission to inspire women and moms, in particular, to live bigger, bolder, braver #everydamnday. Sara serves women through her podcast, her thriving Momentum Mamas membership community, her Tenacious Mamas business & leadership mastermind and her annual event, Shameless Mom Con (coming this spring!) When she’s not supporting Shameless Moms, you’ll find Sara with her husband and 9 year old son – building Legos and pretending to understand Minecraft.
