Wherever you are, I've been there (or maybe I'm there now!) We're all doing our best  at trying to do our best.  We're a bunch of imperfect people trying to figure it all out as we go. And sometimes we need a little help from some friends, right?!  Those who  are simply a few (or a lot of) steps ahead of us to encourage us, inspire us, and help equip us so we can do our life's work. 

about Annica – former corporate mom, trying to do it all at 1000% turned podcast host and expert encourager.

I'm a small town girl who has had my fair share of deer in the headlights moments. So often I felt like I was navigating  twists and turn along the way without a guide.  Perhaps you do too.  I'm pretty sure that I created "my path" based on what the world told me it should look like.  While I've had lots of friends and mentors along the way, it's taken me some time to let the dust settle on the outside voices.  I wasn't sure where to look for guidance and support to get back to where I needed to be, less exhausted and confused and more aligned, and I struggled to find a place where it ALL existed - a little bit of help in a handful of areas in my life, a place that  didn't make me feel overwhelmed or behind.  So I created this sacred place filled with mentors, friends, and experts  who share my ambitions, beliefs, and passions so we can learn, grow, live abundantly, and dream big TOGETHER.  

Me, too! Literally all the time. About LOTS of things...

Have you ever found yourself saying, "I wish I had someone in my life who...?"

& Truth

recent podcast guests 


I love the format and length as well. As busy women/mothers/wives we tend to put off listening to podcasts because we don't have the time. Annica has crafted the perfect dose of truth to feed our souls. Bravo! I will most definitely keep this on my list.  

Wow! I absolutely love this podcast. I found each episode to leave me feeling both recharged and motivated. 

You address topics that are very helpful for my personal and professional growth. I've shared the link with my coworkers and family. Continue to spread your transformative messages. 

Thanks Annica for such motivational and inspirational podcasts. 

My new go-to podcast. After each listen I can't help but feel recharged and refreshed :)
