As two women who reinvented ourselves to start Cool Mom Picks, we love hearing stories of other women doing the same, particularly the challenges and obstacles they had to overcome to achieve success. So much can be learned from sharing those experiences. That’s why we were so thrilled to chat with Mallory Kasdan, who often does just that on her popular M.I.L.K. (Moms I’d Like to Know) podcast. We’re fans ourselves, and we bet you will be too after listening to her own personal experience, as well as her helpful advice.

You can listen live now (do it!), and then make sure you’ve subscribed to our podcast on iTunes (or wherever you listen to podcasts) so that you don’t miss an episode. When you subscribe and download our episodes, it actually helps more people find us. Cool, right?
