The Avenue of Mindset - LIGHT - One Day Soulful Retreat in Texas Cohosts Shannan Hale and Annie Vovan- Recap

The Avenue Mama Podcast

After less than 72 hours in Texas, I came home with a full heart after co-hosting "LIGHT- One day Soulful Retreat" and the addiction to saying, "y'all." This episode is a recap of the retreat and where the imperfections were, and what happens when women rally around each other without fear or judgment.  A huge thank you goes out to Shannan Hale who had the vision to create this event and inviting over 50 women to her brand new home (of just 3 weeks) and inviting me on board. This is magic when like minded women gather and hold space for discomfort, growth and healing. I can't wait for the next retreat! Sign up here to be notified when we do it again!

We talked about leaping from a safe career to your passion and what she’s learned about photographing women. Annie talks about how to put a value on her time, what surprised her about being a mom and how her childhood baggage came up when she had kids. Annie talked about asking for help and how you’re not strong for doing everything on your own. She also talked about self care and how important that is. She opened up about her experience with a miscarriage and her struggles with infertility which she’s so willing to talk about to comfort other women. Lastly we talked about how to do something your family isn’t supportive, her advice to other moms, how she helps other moms discover their passion in their own businesses, and so much more.
