This week I'm honoured to be joined by YouTuber, podcaster and epic momma bear, Amanda Muse. We talk about how Amanda got into YouTube, what it was like having and raising babies in Malaysia, what self-care has looked like at different stages of motherhood, building your own career, trusting your gut in all facets of your life and more.
