My friend Natalie Ellis, CEO and co-founder of bossbabe, is back on the show to discuss how her approach to business, relationships, and life, in general, has shifted so majorly since becoming a mom. 

She describes the identity awakening she went through after giving birth to her daughter and gets real about how she and her husband overcame some of the challenges they were facing in postpartum life. Natalie talks about how these experiences have taught her to become an empowered advocate for herself and her gifts, which includes streamlining her calendar and calling in connections that are in alignment with her priorities. 

Trigger warning: Natalie talks about her traumatic birth experience from 18:09-19:31.
