Tell us about yourself: My name is Sarah Wright Olsen. I am an actor, a writer, a podcaster (The Mother Daze podcast) and I own a company called baeo.com which is an organic skincare line for the whole family. I have 3 children. Wyatt is 9, Esme is 6 and Winter is 2. My first Children’s book just launched and its called Happiness is the Journey!
What have you learned about yourself in the process of telling Clover's story? It's just been a constant reminder to do just that— to be grateful for exactly what's happening right now and to notice the world around me and to be present and I just love that it's just as much a teachable story.
How do you balance motherhood alongside pursuing your creative endeavors? You know, with all of these people around I think it allows me to show up in the way I want to as a Mom. And it allows me to go when I have that moment where I'm like I really want to try this thing— I have all of these people, all of these dear friends, these women friends and my partner going "yeah you should try that!" And it makes me feel a little less afraid and gives me that boost of courage to do it. I have so much gratitude for those humans and there is no me balancing it on my own.
