025: A Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal | Renée Trudeau

It’s your birthright to live the life you desire

[Renée Trudeau]


In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday we’ll be finding out how to re-balance our busy lives as mums with the use of self-care. It’s so very important, because when a woman feels alive and whole and connected to her essence, she’s unstoppable.

My guest today is SuperMum, Renée Trudeau.

Renée lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and teenage son and is an internationally-recognised life balance coach and speaker. She’ also the president of Career Strategists, an award-winning coaching and consulting firm and her corporate clients include Fortune 500 companies such as Dell, Ernst & Young and IBM.

Her work has been featured in the New York Times, US News and World Report, Good Housekeeping, Spirituality & Health and more.

She’s also the author of three best-selling books on life-balance including The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal: How to Reclaim, Rejuvenate and Re-Balance Your Life which we’ll be talking about today.

Renée has been creating and facilitating transformational events for women for more than 20 years. She and her team have trained hundreds of RTA-Certified Facilitators in more than 10 countries around the world to lead self-renewal groups for women based on her award-winning curriculum.

Renée has a kind and beautiful soul and genuinely cares about the needs of mothers, so she is the perfect person to set us on the road to self-renewal.

I’m overjoyed to have Renée my show today, because as a sought after life balance expert and highly acclaimed author, we can learn so much from her.

    Beautiful Angie–so powerful to model this for your daughter. I love to draw “Goddess Cards” (Doreen Virtue) with my young nieces in the morning and invite them to open up to support/live more in flow with life. You might check these out :).
