The Creative Life Podcast: Episode Twenty-Five
I’m welcoming my first guest for the second season today – Nicole Avery. Nicole is the creator of Planning With Kids, one of the biggest and best parenting blogs in the country. As a mother of five, she brings a wealth of experience to her content and advice and what I’ve always liked about her blog is her willingness and drive to self-improve and to find balance in our hectic lives. Other places you can find her are on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
