Lessons from the SugarMama®

Lessons from the SugarMama®

It isn’t every day that I lay on a treatment table with my nether regions exposed and a podcast is born. But…this is how I operate; we talk about the topics that many avoid. I loved recording this episode with my friend and SugarMama®, Shannon O’Brien. We discuss body image, getting your swagger back, and the weird things that many of us wonder about. We ponder the vulnerability phenomenon - that situation where you find yourself sharing the most intimate details of your life when doing a basic thing like getting your nails or hair done, or like me - getting my bikini sugarwaxed. Something changes, the conversation gets REAL.

Our guest: SHANNON O'BRIEN AKA The SugarMama® is a certified Body Sugaring Professional, Founder of Love2Sugar.com and TheSugarNetwork.com, Host of The Sugar Show podcast, and overall badass boss babe.  She's a sassy and fun loving educator with 20 years of experience as a licensed esthetician and 12 years sugaring. After sugaring thousands of people from all walks of life, she has an interesting perspective on what people really feel after the door is closed and they jump up on her treatment table!
