Stripping it All Away to Find Self Love with Jennifer Wilson
Today on the show Jennifer Wilson is joining us for a conversation about motherhood, career and self love.
Jen and I have been friends for over 5 years now. When I first had James I discovered her amazing collection of organic kids clothing. Her company, VonBon was growing really quickly and had become a household name around North America. Jen lived down the street and kindly offered to take me to Mama Mondays at The Juice Truck store. On the way we talked about married life, mom life, work and everything in between.
Since that day, a lot has changed for both of us but today we dive into how one Jen gave it all up on the journey to find herself.
