About This Episode
In 2008, Stephanie O’Dea made a New Year’s Resolution to use her crockpot slow cooker every day for a year and write about it online. This simple idea resulted in 10 books, 6 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list, and a brand new career she could do at home, in her pajamas.
I am a New York Times best-selling author of 10 books. I live in the SF Bay Area, and am a mom to three amazing girls, and a basset hound puppy named Sheldon.
I feel as if I’m living My Version of the American Dream. I believe in Slow Living — I got my start writing online in 2008 when I started my A Year of Slow Cooking website.
I now write, teach, and speak all things Slow Living. I coach busy people who need to get their “Have-Tos” completed efficiently and effectively so there is time for the “Want-Tos.” I work primarily with moms who are trying to feel and function their best while juggling “all the balls.” I believe that at the end of the day, we all just want to feel calm, cool, & collected, and like we did our absolute best.
It starts with learning to Live Slowly. We live in a pressure cooker world. Let’s be more like the crockpot.
