The Get Down and Get Real with Natashia McLean
Season 4, Episode 5[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS] Since the time of this recording I have been to Burning Man, a wedding in Portland, and now in Asheville, North Carolina. Kaliana has started school and we haven't seen each other in about two weeks. It's been a whirlwind of travel with plenty of ups and downs, not unlike the theme of today's show. The other parallel to my journeys and this show are the people I met. One in particular shared with me her recent loss - a miscarriage and the path of healing it took her on. She had no idea that I had done this interview. Welcome to season 4, episode 5 of the #mumboss podcast a show dedicated to enhancing your super mama powers. I’m your host Rachel Maskell and today’s guest is Natashia McLean of Canary Jane, an illustrator, blogger, and Instagram maven. Natashia is a mother of four and is an incredible inspiration and artist. In today's episode she gets personal, like really personal, and shares with me the ins and outs of freelancing and a recent loss that she's still recovering from. There are moments in the show where we talk about blood and female anatomy...like I said...we get real. I know Natashia is not alone and we women need to come together and tell our stories to connect more deeply with our tribe. The woman who shared with me at Burning Man was given a pearl of wisdom and understanding that I want to pass on here...that her loss was a preparation to contain what is to come. Mamas, women, we are incredible and the power that we hold and can give birth to is not always in the form we imagine. But we give birth more frequently than we realize and we are paving the way for great things. Expect to learn how following your passion can have positively profound impacts, the not so fun aspects of working for yourself, and what happens when the unexpected happens.
What we cover:
- Why freelancing rocks
- The challenges of being self employed
- The realities of a miscarriage
- Why it's important to share
