001: Secrets of a SuperMum | Lisa York

Learn to be a SuperMum, simply by changing the way you think

[Lisa York]

Lisa York - SuperMum Podcast

In this very first episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, you’ll find out about the life of an ordinary mum, thick in the trenches of motherhood and dealing with the highs and lows that come with the job title of mum.

My ‘guest’ today is SuperMum, Lisa York. Yep, that’s me!

English born, I live in Canberra, Australia with my husband Bernard, sons Fred (6), Alex (5) and Benny (4) and daughter Elizabeth (2).  My husbands Navy job takes us all over the world and we moved to Australia in January 2016 after living in London for three years. Next, who knows where.

Passionate that the traditional definition of a SuperMum is flawed, I’m on a one-mum-mission to change it. I mean, really. It’s impossible to impeccably keep so many balls in the air at once, hold it all together and never shout at your kids.

But finding out my son had leukaemia just days before his third birthday was a life-changer. And it gave me confidence to shout from the rooftops that a positive attitude is all you need to be a SuperMum.

Easier said than done I agree. But in this episode, you’ll find out how to begin on that journey as I weave it into my own personal story of having four children in four years and eight months.

Get to know me, my life as a mum, my positive mindset, and how The SuperMum Podcast came about. And I’ll teach you the single most important thing about being an incredible mum and how to go about achieving it.

I’m so excited to share my story with you today. It’s about mindset. The super highs and the crippling lows. It’s about motherhood in real-time. Warts and all.
