I’m so excited to have Jamie Otis (you may have heard of her) back on to chat about life, love, and all the things in between. Jamie was on Married at First Sight and The Bachelor, but today we talk about life beyond the silver screen. Fair warning – this episode may feel heavy at times as we discuss trauma-related topics, therapy and more, so please listen with care. Whether you’re a biz owner or not, this episode is packed with wisdom that’s relevant to every stage of life. We talk about therapy being a key element to Jamie’s healing journey, her authentic online presence, building her personal brand, and the lessons learned along the way. Most importantly, Jamie shares key advice on the power of pausing. Join me and listen in to one of my favorite body-positive influencers and momtrepreneurs.
