INTRODUCING THE PODCAST
'MUM: YOU'VE GOT THIS'
Providing a source to hear real-life stories from kicka$$ women currently managing the balancing act between being the best mum they can be, whilst still maintaining or progressing their professional careers
ABOUT THE PODCAST
My name is Elle and I'm a mum of two beautiful girls (aged 3 and 1) who works full time in the banking and finance industry in a senior sales role that is both highly rewarding and highly demanding, but I absolutely love it. In addition to managing this role and trying to prove myself as a powerful female in my employment sector I also strive to be the absolute best version of myself and in turn mum I can be, manage a healthy relationship with my husband of 5 years (16 years together) and aim for ‘date nights’ so that our lives aren’t all about our girls (who are our world!!), build my relationships with and regularly catch up with friends and family, be a good mum to my fur babies (2 dogs, 1 cat), work out, eat healthily, meditate, read, travel, cook, clean, relax, volunteer, Marie Kondo my home, study, enjoy life, participate in self-care (I could go on and on)……it’s a lot! I want it all and I’m working and trying constantly to have it all but sometimes (much of the time) it’s a real struggle.
I’m a huge fan of podcasts and have been on the search to hear from other women in my position – those trying to juggle it all with family/partner/friends whilst also building a career. My search for such a podcast proved futile so with the support and encouragement from some amazing women in my life, I’ve decided to create my own podcast series (why not)!
In this series I'll be interviewing a range of women working daily to try and ‘have it all’; to hear of their successes, challenges, any advice they can offer and really allow them a platform to tell their stories. Because sometimes it feels too much and a little lonely and it's comforting to know you’re not alone and that you’re being heard. The purpose of the podcast is aimed to help other women currently in similar positions and offer some words of wisdom or encouragement to those who will soon be or in the future be 'working, career-focused mums' and might be thinking it won't be possible to 'have your cake and eat it too'. Because whilst it can be a real challenge, you can make it work and its oh so beautiful and rewarding when it does - PLUS what role models we are to our babies.
I hope you enjoy the series and you find it valuable to you and your life, whatever stage you’re at.

We’re all in this together ladies and always remember, You've got this!
