Do you ever wonder if you're doing the "right" things as a parent?

by Sarah Argenal

Episode Summary:

I’m so excited to welcome our guest today, Chris Ducker. Chris has been a business mentor for me for a couple of years now, and one of the biggest things that drew me to him was his candor about his experience with burnout many years ago. Obviously as a working mom I can relate to that situation well. But what really impressed me about Chris was his dedication to transform his life to be more healthy and congruent with this values. I love how he used this experience of complete burnout as a catalyst for change. I can relate to that experience as well, and at the core, that’s what the Working Parent Resource is all about.
