Oh my goodness, No Guilt Mom fam, there is so much to say about this week’s episode of the podcast.
But I honestly don’t think anything I could write will come close to what our guest Venus Morris Griffin has to say for herself. Venus, a single mom of seven, has overcome more than her share of devastating hardships.
You simply must listen in as she shares her story of her blink-of-an eye transition from blissful stay-at-home mom, to being thrust into the workforce with no experience and hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, to then successfully supporting herself and her family.
She vulnerably opens up about growing up with a mother who was an addict and her journey of saving herself and her family from an abusive marriage. This episode is real, raw, powerful – and a must-hear.
Key takeaways from this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast:
- “No matter what happens to you, no matter what you’re going through, as long as you do your part, there’s nothing you can’t get through and thrive from.”
- “Sometimes quitting is not quitting, it is actually winning.”
- “In life you can either repeat the patterns you’ve been exposed to, or you can choose to try to find a better solution.”
- “Life is beautiful, but it’s hard. Nobody has it all together. We’re all trying to figure it out the best we can.”
- “The first thing to do to take care of our kids, is to take care of ourselves.”
- “You are not defined by what happens to you. You’re defined by your core values.”
