Like a Mother:
A chat with Julie Cole, co-founder of Mabel’s Labels
In this episode I am chatting with Julie Cole, co-founder of Mabel’s Labels. Julie recently published her book Like a Mother: Birthing Businesses, Babies and a Life Beyond Labels. As a mom of six, a successful entrepreneur, a mentor in so many things, Julie has an incredible perspective to share. Her book is a blend of personal stories, sage advice, life hacks, and humour. It’s awesome.
This is a fantastic chat and Julie is one of those people you could talk to forever, about anything. We talk about her book, the pros and cons of labels (the title type of label, not the awesome physical labels Mabel’s Labels make), self-care, parenting autistic kids…we cover a lot. Grab your earbuds and your beverage of choice, and join us for this great conversation.
