Serious question: Have you ever felt called to start something? Maybe even to finish? Well STOP RIGHT THERE (or keep moving—just pop in your earbuds as you go) and join me at The Messy Table. Today I’m chatting with my brilliant friend, Lisa Pinnell, who’s an entrepreneur, politician’s wife, and mama of four.

Lisa is the visionary and mom inventor behind the ingenious Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock, which has been featured in Parents magazine, named a “must have” by celebrity Tori Spelling, and called a “top mom hack” by BabyCenter.

But don’t let that fancy language fool you—she’s as down-to-earth as they come.

In Episode #4 of The Messy Table podcast, this successful “mom-preneur” talks openly about the messy process of innovation, her non-Instagram worthy beginnings, where faith fits into business, and how she juggles it all. Believe me, this is one conversation you do NOT want to miss! And the good news is, you don’t have to.

If you’ve ever felt called to START or FINISH something, this episode is especially for you.


You can find the Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock on Amazon, Instagram, and her Binxy Baby website.

Finally, if you’re enjoying this little podcast, would you mind doing me a small favor? I would SO APPRECIATE IT if you would take a few seconds to rate and review The Messy Table podcast on iTunes. Apparantly that helps other women find these encouraging messages, so I’m going to swallow my pride and ask for your assistance. 🙂

Thanks a million, and enjoy your week! Remember to surround yourself with messy tables. Because that’s where the good stuff happens.
