Episode 58: Motherhood + Work: The How with Jesse Coulter and Akia Ng



Today Indiana is chatting with two of her real-life friends about the logistics of being full-time working moms. Jesse Coulter and Akia Ng join us to discuss the tightrope act of daily life, how they juggle childcare drop-offs and pick-ups, what they’ve had to “let go” of, and more. You’ll also hear Jesse share how she prioritizes time with her husband (day dates!) and Akia admits she sometimes has stay-at-home-mom envy. Plus, we hear what moments make it all worthwhile.

Shipt grocery delivery was a game changer for Akia.

These moms love: Akia is currently reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, Jesse stores all her kids’ shoes in a giant basket, Akia is digging an oil diffuser with a glowing light, and iPad doodling and chocolate are some much enjoyed little luxuries.
