This week, we talk to #Momboss, and Warrior of Life, Krissy LeFevre who is Vice President of Ludo Management, Inc.  Krissy is the mother of a twin boy and girl that were delivered via surrogate.

In this powerful episode, she talked to us about her long seven-year journey to becoming a mother, after surviving cervical cancer, a hysterectomy, and a failed adoption.

She goes in depth into the process of retrieving her eggs, finding a surrogate and the surprising egg donor that made her dream of motherhood a reality.

She talked to us about her career trajectory from being an attorney, to being on The Apprentice, to building a worldwide food brand that includes multiple restaurants, and spearheading innovative food experiences across the country with her husband Chef Ludo.

Her experience on The Apprentice and how it prepared her to raise twins.

The reason why she posed for Playboy magazine and the role it played in her becoming a mother.

She also has a candid conversation with us about how to talk to kids about difficult subjects.
