Lets Be Honest Before We Start Pretending

Apr 26, 2021

I am thrilled today because we have an amazing guest who is a best-selling author of “Ignite Your Parenting” and an all-around amazing human being. She is releasing her new book tomorrow April 27, 2021,  “Building A Legacy of Love: Inside the Sandwich Generation” and I am so excited we get to have her here today to start a conversation that is so important, and not many of us are thinking about. Her commitment and follow through on her passion is absolutely extraordinary.

Christy Byrne Yates is the mother of two – now adult – children. She is an expert in navigating the challenges and opportunities in life including living in the “Sandwich Generation” (those

raising children who are also caring for an aging parent), special needs education, and

parenting. She incorporates meditation, mindfulness practices and Emotional Freedom

Techniques (EFT) into her work along with other evidence-based practices to support

growth, goal achievement and a pathway to living your best life now. In California she is

a Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP), a credentialed school psychologist, a certified coach,

speaker, and author.


Christy and I had such a great conversation, she is a wealth of knowledge and support. This is such an important conversation and our request is that you share this with the people in your life and know that there is support for you.
