060 Tidying Up Your Life With Rachel Friend

On today’s episode on the Ambitious Motherhood Podcast we talk with Rachel Friend from episode one of the Netflix show, Tidying up With Marie Kondo. We talk about her time on the show, the process, is the house still clean and how the method has not only helped her home organization but life in general.


Meet Rachel

Rachel Friend is a communication professor, mindset coach, & mother who is all about creating more joy on this journey. She accomplishes this through her mission of teaching others the tools to get out of their own way so they can feel more empowered in their choices and build stronger connections to others--all of which lead to more joy.

Parenting has been something that has taught Rachel even more about herself and what she is passionate about. As a special needs mom, positive communication is something that is very important to her. She is a huge advocate for attachment parenting and loves sharing her perspective on different ways to promote more bonding with your children. She hopes to inspire you and move you to take action on your life in areas that aren't serving you. Whether it's with your spouse, yourself, or your children she's ready to help you get clear on what you really want for yourself & your life.
