Inspiring TED talks for moms
Books, LIFESTYLE, Motherhood
You are busy! Kids, work, husband, shopping, activities, birthdays and and and... But once the kids are in bed or the grandparents took over and you are ready for some much needed and deserved “me” time, we have a great inspirational idea for you today.
Have you heard about TED Talks? You probably have. But have you taken some time and browsed through their library?
Probably not and that is why we did that job for you and found some truly inspiring talks that are informative, challenging and entertaining. Inspiring TED talks for moms.
Talks that get your wheels turning.
Download the Ted app on your mobile, and you can watch talks anywhere you are.
On the sofa, at the airport if you travel lots for work, during diner preparations or when you go for a run (more listening than watching in that case).
By the way: TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design!
