If you’re a parent living in an empty — or almost empty — nest, this episode is for you. Lisa Heffernan, co-founder of Grown and Flown, has made it her life’s work to support parents during what can be an extremely difficult transition.
In the midst of guiding their own kids through this crazy transition, Lisa and her biz partner, Mary Dell Harrington, launched what has become the largest website and Facebook group for parents of fifteen to twenty-five year olds, earning them a spot on People Magazine’s 25 Women Changing the World in 2017.
Now they’ve compiled new takeaways and fresh insights from all that they’ve learned into a handy, must-have guide.
