A real, raw and unscripted conversation about the lessons Karly has learned in life and business, from beautiful Northern New South Wales on the east coast of Australia.
First and foremost, Amy Wright is a mom and has been her entire freaking adult life. She didn't used to drink at all... and then she had a teenager. It was self medication or the nut house, ya'll.
Amy and her husband have 5 kids in their blended family and yes, they know what causes it so please don't ask or she'll make shit real awkward for you.
She started her online business in 2009 and tried to fit into a little box of elevator speeches and niches and "5 secrets to blah, blah, blah" for yeeeeeears. And shit just didn't work out for her the way she wanted.
She got sick of trying to squeeze her ass into that little box. So she gave it the double bird and ripped that box apart, piece by piece.
She finally embraced her gift of humor and became The Drunk Mom, making videos about life, parenting, embarrassing moments and brutal honesty. BOOM... awesome explosion!

Trish and her team at Plastic Surgery Hub genuinely believe in the physical and emotional benefits that can come from quality plastic surgery. They also believe that surgery is not the answer for everyone. It is their hope that everybody will be able to make confident informed decisions about plastic surgery and through their forum, find the support and friendship that makes the process more rewarding.
Trish has long provided advice and support for women considering and undergoing plastic surgery. After her own experience with weight loss surgery and significant breast and body procedures, she came to the realisation that quality and first hand information about surgery was difficult to come by.
She sets about compiling real stories of men and women undertaking procedures as well as interviewing surgeons to provide a balanced, useful perspective on plastic surgery choices. Cutting through the sales pitch and hype, she continues to bring home the real issues around plastic surgery and helps you get the most out of your surgical procedures.
