Episode 55: Latham Thomas: Own Your Glow

Listen on iTunes and Subscribe!

Today’s show is a super special episode – a sneak peek behind-the-scenes of the Origin™ Collective!

We’ve never opened up any of our content to the public before, but today you’ll be getting a look at something we offer monthly to members: the Maven Masterclass.

This Maven Masterclass is with my friend, Latham Thomas, founder of MamaGlow.com. Latham is the author of the brand-new book, Own Your Glow, a member of Oprah’s Super Soul 100, is on tour with Glennon Doyle and Abby Wambach for Together Live, and is a self-care and health advocate to Alicia Keys, Gabrielle Union, and more.

This conversation was really amazing and went into a lot of different (and unexpected) places, and you’ll be blown away by what Latham has to say!

I especially want you to listen for:

  • the totally unexpected way Latham has connected with world-class influencers to further her mission
  • how she’s created a support network to grow her business as a solo mama
  • the revolutionary approach to women’s health, reproduction, and self care that she teaches
  • her thoughts on fertility after 35 and the humdinger one-liner she has about the age of your eggs – you’re gonna love it!

Listen in and leave us a comment about which nugget of wisdom from Latham you loved the most!

  • Thank you for this — it is delightful, as I am soon becoming a Mom, to here about birth interrupters and re-educators, because this is the way we need to move as a culture. Thank you!

  • Amber Bishop-Kainu

    Lovely! “Slow activists!” I laughed & cried. Thank you so much.
