Watch for Kiersten Hathcock, Mod Mom Founder, at TEDx Sedona on November 3rd

We are excited to share the news about Kiersten's forthcoming talk at TEDx Sedona next month, "Become the Carpenter of Your Life.As she will explain there, "becoming the carpenter of her own life meant doing things she never imagined and discovering buried truths along the way." Eleven years ago, this 34-year-old ex-TV network executive & mom of two unexpectedly went from corporate to carpentry. She faced the typical entrepreneurial challenges as well as personal personal realizations that rocked her world.
