The Balanced Life podcast is a place for honest conversations about what it REALLY looks like to find a sense of balance in the midst of busy lives. Each week I interview women who appear to be "doing it all." We get real and practical to reveal what they DO and perhaps more importantly, what they DON'T do, to find their own unique sense of balance. We talk health, wellness, self-care, work/life balance, and everything in between. Tune in to see how others are making it work and gain practical insights on what it means to create a healthy, happy, uniquely balanced life.

In a world where we can pick up our phones and look at what everyone else is doing right, it’s hard not to compare yourself to others, especially as a woman of color! Today’s guest, Sandra Chuma, has built a platform that highlights and celebrates the successes of women of color in a way that no other media platform does. In today’s interview, she shares her journey with creating NDINI, navigating insecurity and inadequacy, and overcoming the challenges of having an emotional connection to food. Sandra shares what it really looks like to sacrifice and prioritize yourself throughout the chaos of every day life. Join Sandra and your host, Robin Long, in this raw and intimate conversation.  Listen all the way to the end of the show for Sandra’s Rapid Fire Session!
