The Power of Your Intuition E4
On this episode of The Messy Middle, we welcome guests Mary Foran and Jill Petersen of Girls Mentorship. We discuss the messiness of teenage years, from the perspective of both what they are seeing now and the lessons they learned from being a teenager themselves.
Jill and Mary drop so many valuable nuggets of wisdom. We share stories of how our intuition guides us and the power of listening to our gut. Jill describes the moment she knew she had to quit her dream job and Mary gives us a glimpse into how she has become the strong and resilient woman she is today.
If you are the parent of a tween or teenager this is a must-listen. Mary and Jill offer a few tips for parents on how to show up for our kids in a way that will honor and nurture their souls. If you are an entrepreneur or thinking of starting your own business, Jill’s story of listening to the voice inside of her and pushing for more will inspire you. This is a great episode full of tangible advice!

About The Messy Middle Podcast & Radio Show
“Beginnings are usually scary, and endings are usually sad but it’s the middle that counts the most.”- Hope Floats
We often talk about the beginnings and endings of things. We celebrate our firsts and mourn our lasts. We often ignore the in between, or what we like to call the messy middle. In this nebulous space, often there are no awards or recognition.
It is frequently characterized by the long days, hard work, uncertainty, self-doubt, small wins, setbacks, persistence, and sheer determination to simply keep moving forward. And, yet, it is also where the magic happens. The middle part of our journey is what shapes us, prepares us and fills our lives with meaning.
Welcome to the Messy Middle Podcast & Radio show! Each month we invite guests to share their own version of the Messy Middle and the lessons they’ve learned along the way.
Whether you’re in the messiness of growing a business, healing from trauma, or navigating the wild world of parenting; this show is for you! We’re so excited to celebrate the messiness of life and business with you!
