Gotcha Mama Podcast episode 28 – How To Shed the “Shoulds” and Gain Clarity with Regan Walsh

Do you ever feel like you’re doing something because you “should”? Not because you want to do it or even because you need to do it. But because of some unspoken expectation that you should do it?

If you said ‘yes’ (that’d be me too, friend), then hang on for this episode of the Gotcha Mama podcast.

In this episode, I’m chatting with wife, mother to two beautiful girls, and executive and life coach Regan Walsh.

Regan definitely has impressive professional credentials and experience to back up her successful career. I also want you to know that she is open-hearted and kind. She is honest about how her past decisions have shaped her into the woman and mom she is now. 

I have no doubt that you’ll feel energized and more confident to take on your day after listening to Regan’s episode.
