Brief summary of show:

In this episode of the Motherhood Village podcast, I speak with Holly Daniels Christensen, mother of two and the founder and CEO of Dune Jewelry Co., to discuss her journey in building her successful experiential jewelry brand. 

She talks about her difficult childhood and how it prepared her for the hard work required in running a business and raising a family at the same time. Holly emphasizes the importance of celebrating little wins, remaining passionate about one's work and living purposefully. 

She also provides advice to listeners on maximizing one's numerous roles, highlighting how women can multitask effectively. Apart from her business, she discusses the challenges of raising tween girls and letting go of expectations. Holly ends the conversation by encouraging women to lift each other up and reinforcing that there’s enough room for everyone to succeed.
