Today we talk with Jen Oliver, founder of LoveFitMama.com, the platform through which she educates, inspires, and transforms busy moms into loving, fit mamas by restoring their core, igniting their passion, and designing their ideal reality. Jen has made it her mission to passionately teach women to love their bodies and take loving control of their lives. Fueled by her genuine zest for life and adventure, our conversation naturally touched on mindfulness, bedtime routines (for entrepreneurs, not kids), as well as the logistics of packing up your life, and traveling around the world with a two-year-old and four-year-old in tow. This episode could truly be a rule book for living the good life.
