Meet Susan Eckstein, empowerment coach, badass, mom warrior and advocate. Eight years ago she divorced her husband and made the brave choice to be the non-custodial parent, a heart-wrenching decision she made for her two boys. For years she hid her decision from her social circle, until she decided, only recently, to release her shame, define motherhood for herself, and share her journey with the world.
And for all you non-custodial dads out there, listen to this! This episode is also for you.

How many times have you texted your ex and gotten no response? Or when you ask for reimbursement on something and you lose track of all that you are owed? Or what about all those texts between the tow of you and you can’t keep track of all that back and forth? Finally, there’s a solution and it’s called Fayr – a robust app that makes coparenting easier. I talk with Michael Daniels, founder of Fayr and divorced father of two. He shares his personal story of his divorce, losing everything, living out of his car and his big idea that got him back on his feet, helping millions of parents struggling with coparenting.

Many people tell me all the time, “Lindsey, I really should write a book on my life, how do I get started?” For starters, you will need a writing platform, a website, and a good number of subscribers and followers so that you can SELL your book, or whatever service you have. Since so many people asked me how to get started, I figured I’d do a podcast episode and share the behind the scenes on how I got started, and how I keep it going.
How many times do you tell yourself things like, “I’m never organized, I’m not good at money, I’ll never find love again, or I’m so stupid….” These are what I call ‘negative labels’ and you tell yourself these things because they were likely put on you by someone else (your ex, parent, sibling, etc). So how do you overcome these labels and find a more positive label for yourself? Take a listen!
Research shows that we when are raised by a narcissistic parent, we will likely get into a romantic relationship with a narcissist. I explain the many reasons why this might be true, but the focus of this episode is about looking at your past and what baggage you brought into your relationship that didn’t work out. And until you heal those childhood wounds, you will continue to manifest yet another narcissist in your life, romantically or even professionally! I call this baggage “The ghost of our fathers (or mothers)” and how they continue to subconsciously haunt us, but also how to let them go!
How many times do you get derailed when someone criticizes you, puts you down, jabs at you, etc? And how often do you get hurt when it’s your ex, spouse, parent, or someone you care about (or used to care about)? This episode is all about how to NOT take it personally, and understanding WHY people actually put you down (hint: it’s not about you, at all!). If you’re struggling with emotional boundaries, then this episode is for you.
