#55 – Being a Part of Something Bigger, with Susan Quinn

I’ve wanted to have my mom as a guest on the podcast ever since I first had the idea to do it, and I’m thrilled to say that today’s the day!!

Our Zoom call for the pod

My mom, Susan Quinn, is so many amazing things rolled into one. She’s just retired from a very successful career as an optometrist (yes, she’s the original Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman!), but also throws herself into organizations to better our world. She is a passionate gardener and bread baker, and I knew we’d have a fun conversation for all of you to be a part of, too.

We talk about how she began her entrepreneurial career (partners in small business with my dad), and investing ourselves in the world in a way that makes us feel proud to be a part of our communities. We talk about that to-do list that’s looming over so many of us in COVID isolation and how to deal with it, and we even get a special guest appearance from my 95-year-old grandma 🙂 Three generation on the podcast at once!

Happy Mother’s Day (in the US) — to my mom and all the moms out there. <3 <3 <3
