I’m Taking Maternity Leave — Welcoming Co-Host Cary Fortin: The Friendship Series
#081 — Honest Conversations About the Hard Things With Co-Host Cary Fortin
Deep female friendships are one of the greatest blessings of my life. But I didn’t really have meaningful friendships with other women until my late 20’s.
Then I discovered what a gift it is to have judgement-free, deeply thoughtful conversation partners who engage in honest conversation about the hard things—sex, the patriarchy, aspirations, feminism…
And for the next few weeks, I am sharing some of those conversations with one of my best friends, Cary Fortin.
Today, Cary describes the genesis of her business, New Minimalism, explaining the psychology behind letting go of ‘stuff’ and the ins and outs of a service-based business. She shares her incredibly difficult parenting journey, discussing how dealing with the loss of two pregnancies shaped the person she is today and taught her how to have honest conversations about complex issues. Listen in for the story of our friendship and understand the value of being open with close female friends!
