[EP11] Why A Mommy Bought Daddy’s Digest | Zoe Share
In this episode I’m joined by Zoe Share. Zoe is the Founder of Schmooz Media and the CEO/Owner of Daddy’s Digest, a parenting publication focused on Dads that is changing the narrative around active conscious parenting (where men are not only involved on the periphery but involved in the day to day).
We spoke about why she decided to acquire the Daddy’s Digest publication and her vision for creating a space for Dad’s (and men in general) to be able to search for answers that difficult to find in the online space. Some of the topics discussed include how to become a better Dad, mental health challenges, personal relationship dynamics and how to balance work & parenting.
