Mom Wants More Episodes

Visit the Mom Wants More Website

The Mom Wants More Podcast is for women who have a dream in their heart and a passion they want to pursue, women who believe that motherhood is their most important calling but not their only calling.

Co-hosts, Alana Dawson and Amber Salhus, discuss the tough topics that no one talks about when you set out to follow your dreams. Listeners will gain inspiration and encouragement from bi-weekly interviews with women who are uncovering and pursuing their passion in the middle of a messy life. Women who have made their passion into successful businesses, side-hustles, or simply something they love to do.

We encourage moms to uncover & pursue their passions, trade mom-guilt for joy, have fun along the way!
