The Connected Mom Life with Emily Siegel is a podcast all about learning how to live a life full of authentic connections. Because real connection is all any of us really want. We want to belong. We want to be seen. We want to know we matter. We tell moms that it takes a village. But what we don’t tell them is that villages don’t just happen. We have to create them. And each week, we talk about how.

I’ve always hated the expression “early is on time, on time is late.” Why can’t I just be on-time-ish? But recently, someone casually mentioned to me how she’d stopped being slightly late to things and it had removed a ton of low-grade stress. And that was enough for me to give it a try. So […]
