Parenting Leadership

DJ has such a compassionate heart for parents. Being a guest on her podcast showed me once again how she is all about helping parents be their best. In turn, those children grow up learning how to love. Leaders help others thrive. DJ has an eye for people going that extra mile to reach the parents for that special support they need. What a treat to be with her and know the important work she is contributing. HIghly recommend Imperfect Heroes Podcast.

Protecting Your Children When You Are Not There

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Chuck shared some excellent and important information. DJ and Chuck made it easy to listen to this difficult subject by interjecting stories that helped the listener understand that the reality of this subject is important to consider. The option of will versus trust was clearly explained and additional information about finding suitable and willing adults to step in if something should happen that would leave your kids without you was shared with sensitivity. Excellent presentation. Thank you.

Down to earth real advice

DJ does an amazing job of keeping the advice real and applicable to all parents. Definitely something for everyone no matter what the age of your kids. Highly recommend!!!
