Ep. 65 Shownotes: Coffee Talk With Momma Durkin

Momma Durkin is one of the most LOVING people you will ever meet. She’s 86-years old and is a pure spit-fire of energy who will make you laugh, smile and feel lots of love. Mom raised 8-kids in a single-parent home in Brick, NJ, and worked 2-jobs to make ends meet and put food on the table. I’ll be forever grateful for the sacrifices Mom made to make our home the most loving and compassionate place possible. It also still fuels me today on every level. 

I had the opportunity recently to be down in Orlando, FL, and spend an entire day with the most loving woman on the planet. When I asked her to record a podcast, she replied, “What’s a podcast?” 

Folks, you are in for a special treat today as Momma Durkin knocked it out of the park and you are absolutely going to laugh, smile and get a chance to see the LOVE that my Mom epitomizes.

You will also better understand where I come from and what makes me tick by listening to today’s episode.

Let’s go down to Orlando now and hear this once-in-a-lifetime interview with my beautiful Mom, Mary “Muffy” Durkin. Please light up the social media LOVE after you listen to the episode and give Muffy Durkin a shout-out.
