As moms, business owners, and HUMANS in the 21st century - there's a whole lot to keep mental track of in this lifetime.

Thing is - when we let #allthetasks build up, keeping squillions of mental tabs open at a given time, ...

In this episode I'm asking you to get HONEST about the why, where, what, when, and how of your online presence.
