new podcast episode:

Childless not by choice and how to still leave a legacy with Laura Payne-Stanley

Today’s episode is focused on being childless, not by choice. How that aspect has affected Laura and her husband’s life. From corporate jobs to entrepreneurship, the numerous attempts with IVF (or ICSI for them) and the different stages of grief and processing emotions along this journey. Things you should and shouldn’t say to those going through these variations of grief, and dabbling into the dangers of isolation when working towards recovery and healing. We also dive into legacy, and how to still leave a legacy when childless. Laura is my former business coach, and a truly amazing human being! I hope you enjoy today’s episode.
