Upcoming Podcast Guests!

Hey friends,

This summer has been a busy one--with lots of interviews, website construction, writing, and more! But I couldn't be more thrilled about the upcoming 5 Minute Mom Podcast launch. Here's a sneak preview of some of the guests waiting in the wings:

Jessica Honnegar, Nicki Koziarz, Jen SchmidtKim Walker Smith, Ellie Holcomb, Hayley Morgan, Jessica Turner, Cherie Lowe, Emily Stroud, April Graney, and Dorena Williamson.

I've been swimming in wisdom these summer months, just from short chats with these powerhouse women. We tackled so many issues----everything from hospitality to diversity, from anxiety to renewing our minds, from money to balancing work, from postpartum depression to mini-donkeys. Yep--we covered a lot of ground! I promise you that these interviews won't leave you unchanged and are worth every second of listening.

THIS IS JUST THE START so sign up for updates to stay in the loop and find out how to listen when the show launches. There's many more great guests to come and I can't wait to tell you about them.

Love, Audra

P.S. And, just so you know that I actually came out of my podcasting cave and spent some time with my family--here's one of my favorite pics of sweet Lydia from the beach this summer!
