Podcast Episode 108: Failing Forward with Elle Cosimano

Have you ever thought of just leaving it all? 

You know… quitting your highly successful job, packing up your entire family in your car, taking only what fits in said car, and moving to the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico?

Does this sound like the plot to some amazing book? Well, believe it or not, it’s the short version of Award-winning author Elle Cosimano’s real life! In addition to book club fav Finlay Donovan is Killing It, Elle – once a real estate agent – has written 9 mysteries and thrillers for adults and young adults (with more on the way!). Elle is also a homeschooling mama of two teenage boys and we are totally fan-girling having her on the podcast this week!

Elle shares with us how she left her lucrative career in the DC metro area when she felt like something big was missing. So she took a sabbatical and found her happiness in Mexico, with her family of four (and dog!), writing her first book. Through that experience, Elle discovered what was truly important, how to appreciate a simpler way of life, and most importantly, to teach her kids how to fail forward!

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • The joy of raising teens and tapping into their soon-to-be adult psyches
  • Mid-life career changes are possible even when you’re successful in your current gig (but that doesn’t mean it’s easy!)
  • What a life of simplicity was like for an American family of 4 on the beaches of Mexico (and how vastly different it was than life in busy Northern Virginia)
  • How dealing with rejection in the literary world became a great example of resilience for kids
