Deeper Dive Into Taking a Break

featuring Jabina Coleman LSW, MSW, CLC, IBCLC
Course Description
Join Annie & Leah from the Lactation Business Coaching Podcast for a 1-hour conversation with Jabina Coleman LSW, MSW, CLC, IBCLC, also known as The Lactation Therapist, to learn how to give yourself permission to take a break.

One more task...and then you'll sit down and enjoy that book in which the bookmark hasn't moved in weeks. Owning a private lactation practice means there will always be tasks that need tending. Granting yourself permission to take a break can be difficult with so many balls in the air. 
Jabina provided a special lens during this one-hour deeper dive - understanding the demands faced by lactation professionals in private practice and her expertise in the field of mental health. Combining these two gives vital insight into how lactation consultants can say yes to their needs so they can meet the needs of others.

We know that where there’s community, there’s power - and we wanted a place where lactation business owners could join in on authentic and candid conversations about what running a business in our industry really looked like.

If you’ve been looking for a place that doesn't feel like another “boss babe” business networking event, but instead a true connection with other lactation consultants cheering you on while offering their help and experience, our Deeper Dives are for you.
