“Being a Mother today is an equivalent to having 2.5 full-time jobs for 90 hours a week. Research shows that people burn out after 4 hours a day of work.” -Stephanie Jhala
Stephanie Miranda Jhala is a multidisciplinary force in the realm of business, social impact, and leadership. She brings over a decade of experience in Strategy, Corporate Social Responsibility, Culture, and Coaching. Pre-baby, she propelled purpose-driven companies with a bold vision to make a difference in the world. Upon becoming a mother, Stephanie shifted her focus to building a community of empowered mothers.
Motherhood whooped her butt. She deeply mourned the loss of her old identity and felt desperately lonely. When she hit rock bottom, she decided to gather mothers to learn if she was crazy, only to find out that we were all in the same boat.
What started as a personal quest for support, grew into a much bigger mission to empower mothers around the globe. All the Mama Feels (NOTE: rebranding to “A Mother’s Movement”) was born and has since blossomed into a deeply connected and healing community. The ultimate vision is to activate maternal power, rise up to positions of leadership, close the gender gap, and restore balance to the planet: boardrooms, governments, oceans, and forests.

WOW. This episode got me fired up to take back our POWER and DIVINE WORTH as Mothers. You’re not “Just a Mom.” Nurturing a child is the most important gift for both a child and a Mother.
This conversation was so rich, you’ll want to share it with your Mom friends. It’s time to pursue balance for the Modern Mom because living in the masculine structure doesn’t work anymore. There should be a #MeTooMom Movement for this.
Open your mind to essential oils. Kelly Schott from The Oil Dispensary shares that she was skeptical about oils at first. Her success with peppermint oil inspired her to learn why these oils work. This episode is an overview of what essential oils are, how to use them, and why we might care- especially as moms.
