This is episode 39 and today I’m here with Aubrey Hargis talking about Mompreneurship.

Aubrey Hargis, M.Ed. is a parent coach, Montessori advocate, and homeschooler best known for her empathetic approach and appreciation for the magic of childhood. Aubrey lives with her husband and two children under a blanket of San Francisco fog, where the coastal cliffs and nearby redwood trails are always beckoning for another adventure. You can connect with her at ChildoftheRedwoods.

I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.
