Description

With seven kids between the two of them, Cat & Nat know just how lonely and isolating motherhood can be. So, they set out on a mission to bring women and moms together by hosting dinner parties and events - with wine and without babies. The events garnered huge success in Toronto and were talked about all over, leading Cat & Nat to take things to the next level and break into the online world to reach more people and connect women and moms everywhere. Cat & Nat's rapidly-exploding community of like-minded moms tune in every day to watch them rewrite the paradigm of “the perfect mom.” With honesty and humor, Cat & Nat dismantle the unrealistic portrayals of motherhood that are often presented throughout social and traditional medias. Through their virally famous video series #MOMTRUTHS, which have garnered hundreds of millions of views around the world, and their daily Facebook Live show, Cat & Nat share everything moms think but are too afraid to talk about. Join them in Season 1 as they bring it back to the beginning and walk you through how they accidentally became mom millionaires by just being themselves.

#30: Our Definition Of "Killing It"
2377

Well for the first time...maybe ever...we didn't go off the rails this episode. We talk lots about our business and social interactions on our platforms. Social media is like a mutual relationship. We are here for you, and you are here for us. But what exactly are we here for? What is our mission? We break it all down in this podcast.

#29: You Have To Go Get What You Want
2308

This week's episode starts off with some serious chats about being relentless and fearless in business and life (and raising kids with the same characteristics), and then it naturally moves into stories about the best night out in Chicago, no-phone policies and eye- f*cking.  Turning insightful conversations into sex talk, it's what we do best over here!

#28: We Must Be Doing Something Right
2235

This week's episode is all about sharing positive and consistent messages with your partner and kids in order to turn the mom guilt into pride. But of course we experience a few interruptions from flying squirrels and dick talk...

Come join the conversation live on tour! Head to catandnat.ca/tour to find out what cities we're in next and follow us over on Instagram

TOP QUOTES from this episode:

  • "There are 700 different ways to parent, but the one you choose will be the right one. As long as you believe it, your kids will too, because they trust you and look at you to be the leader. "
  • "That's why it's our job as parents to teach our kids to be okay, and to be happy, with life and the situations we're in. That's why it's our job to flip the script and squash the guilt and shame that we, as moms, carry around with us every day."
  • "How we describe our job and our unique situation to our kids is opening up the conversation and bringing light to how all moms do it differently. If you sit there and you beat yourself up, talk negatively about yourself and apologize for going to work, your kids will think it's a bad thing. Instead, we choose to look at our situation and think that it's amazing, and we say out loud that it's amazing, so that our kids believe the same."

#27: Continue To Search For What Feels Right
2642

No matter what anyone says, we will always deliver the message we're trying to convey in the only way we know how - the message of acceptance, and that "you are enough". And one thing about us is that we aren't afraid of changing things when they don't feel right. We know we don't know everything. We're not afraid of continuing to search for what feels right if we're exploring new things and land somewhere that doesn't feel secure. Anywhoo....that's a whole lot of deep conversation but don't worry, we still manage to talk about sex in this one.

#26: Making Our Kids Resilient
2455

We want to ensure we're not just teaching our kids to be kind but also teaching them that keeping their voice and being true to themselves is just as important as being kind.  Being resilient is at the core of both who we want them to be and what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

#25: We're Done Being Nice
2206

As two women tackling a heck of a lot on a daily basis between our business and our families, we got to a point where we realized we are just done being nice to individuals before we've been nice to ourselves.  Don't compromise yourself to try and be nice to someone else because that's when people get exhausted and defeated.  Stay true to yourself and you'll be much better off. Oh, and swallow your balls.....that's an inside joke for anyone who listens to the full episode.

#23: Living for Mondays vs Fridays
2498

Do you think we could actually get through an entire episode being serious about entrepreneurship? Well, we didn't, BUT we did talk a lot about the types of jobs we've had and what our motivations behind them were.  Lots of entrepreneur talk, but also the occasional masturbation discussion.

#22: Women Need to Hire Other Women
2223

It's so rewarding to us to hire other women to help us grow this community of women. We understand each others pressures.  We understand each other's work ethic. Women will communicate when they have something to say. And we understand each other's circumstances, without judgement. We're all about it, and we tell you a little bit about our approach in this episode. 

We also get into what makes us "good moms"....whatever that means. Plus a phone call from Nat's Mom as we tell her we made #1 on the Globe and Mail Bestsellers List again.  To get the book head over to catandnat.ca/book

#19: We Went Off The Rails
2493

So we set out to make this podcast about our book coming out today but kinda went off the rails and ended up talking about some pretty explicit shenanigans. So instead, listen to the podcast and then go buy our book for more off the rails conversation. Have you bought our new book "Mom Truths" yet?  It's out TODAY!!! Buy it online over at catandnat.ca/book or anywhere books are sold.

We also want to give a special shout out to the company that completes our dinner plates.  Because yes, hummus and veggies as a side to chicken constitutes as supper.  Summer Fresh Salads, Hummus and Dips are “Real food, you can feel good about everyday”.  We find them in the refrigerated deli section of our local grocery stores.

#18: What's Relatable?
2522

We've had some people reach out to us over the last little while about whether or not we're "relatable" and we want to set the record straight about what "relatable" looks like for us and how we don't think "success" should diminish your relatability.  We're still the same women. We're still the same moms. And we're still the same dream chasers we've always been.  Listen on to hear our tell-all. 

We're also stoked to have Summerfresh on board this season because what's not to love about a company that supplies dip.  Summer Fresh Salads, Hummus and Dips are “Real food, you can feel good about everyday”.  We find them in the refrigerated deli section of our local grocery stores.

#16: It's A Soulmateship
2507

How do we work? Like how does Cat work with Nat, and Nat work with Cat? It's not always simple to describe but we're going there. It's stronger than a friendship, or a relationship, it's like....a. "Soulmate"-ship.

#15: Trying to "Find Yourself" After Babies
2415

This might be a bit of a controversial one because it doesn't really follow popular opinion about how to "find yourself" after babies.  Listen along to hear what we think happens after babies and how we navigated through that just after we had our kids and even now.

#14: How Did We Become A Brand
2594

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves that what we do is work and a business, because we enjoy ourselves so much. And what's usually a hard topic for people to talk about publically (like sex), we're comfortable with, while what might be easier for others to talk about (like business) it doesn't always come naturally to us.  Join us for this one as we jump into how we became a trustworthy and reliable brand.

#13: Our List of "Failures"
2535

You know we're back, like we never left....... (anyone get that reference?)

Season 2 ya'll!  It's like we never left.  Maybe because we didn't actually. Pretty into podcasts over here. So in this one we get into the Mom Rut a little bit more and explain why we felt so compelled to book a vacation with our kids for two weeks in February. Spoiler Alert: It's all about smiling. We also go on a nice little tangent about what some of our "failures" have been and how we don't let them become setbacks. 

We're also stoked to have Summerfresh on board this season supporting the podcast because 1) They're a Canadian Company 2) They were started by a woman. What's not to love about that?

BONUS EPISODE #2: Working Moms vs Working Dads
2119

When things started to take off for us in our business, our husbands and our moms stepped in big time to help support us and for that we couldn't be more grateful.  But the minute we get back home from tour or meetings, all of the initial responsibility we used to hold comes back on us.  Here's an episode dedicated to just a bit of our thoughts on how "Mom Guilt" shapes Working Moms vs Working Dads.

2371

We're not singers, we're not dancers, we're not comedians, we're not actresses.....Hollywood's still trying to figure out where we fit in, but all we know is being ourselves is the only thing we know how to do now. When we decided to be ourselves, that's when things really took off for us.

#7: How The FUN Show Came To Be...
2526

So we left off without any representation.  We had our lawyer, we had Sam & Lindsay, and that was it.  Over the course of the summer when most would expect things to fall apart, they actually started to come together after getting an email from a local venue in Toronto looking to host one of our Facebook Live shows. From there, we started to create the concept of the FUN show without having any clue what it would come to be at the time. Think male dancers, brazilian dancers, and all the free wine and cocktails your heart desired.

#6: "You're Going To Be Nothing..."
2957

You know what they say, what goes up must come down.  Well, we didn't really come down but we did hit a few snags along the way.  After going viral we knew exactly where we wanted to go, but it was a learning curve trying to get there. This is the point in our story where we learned the difference between the people who wanted to be a part of our growth and the people who could actually make it happen. And for everyone who said we'd be nothing, we said "Watch".

#5: We Went Viral...
2187

This is when we "made it".  Well....not really because what the heck is "making it" anyway.  But we did have one of our #MOMTRUTHS go viral which was the biggest thing to happen to our business up until that point and everything sort of took off from there.

#3: We're Over Events...
2313

This is the point in the story where Cat & Nat decide that they know moms far better than brands do and that they could create something far bigger than events. The ladies read emails from the naysayers, get a big television appearance, and then things almost fall apart...
