Get ready to meet a media maven who runs four magazines (four!) for the Meredith Parenting Network including Parents, Fit Pregnancy and Baby, Family Fun, and Parents Latina, is the mom to social media-savvy tweens, and somehow still finds time to fit in her workouts (whew!). Liz Vaccariello is a very busy woman who has learned some incredibly useful lessons that we can all use to make our lives healthy and happier.
Jenn and I were lucky enough to chat with Liz about her advice for new moms (sometimes you just have to leave the kitchen counters alone and take a nap!). We also discussed how she speaks about food and body image with her young daughters, plus how she manages to put out several magazines a month and keep her cool. (Big hint: hire amazing people who want your job!)
