The Trials and Tribulations of Kaye Parker


Have you ever reached a point in your life where you’re left wondering how you got there and you’re looking for change, but not sure where to start? Kaye Parker is a Toronto-based creator and media personality. She’s chatting with Nelson (who’s flying solo) in this raw and emotional episode of Cast of Creators.

Kaye was adopted and grew up in a small town in Niagara Falls. She openly shares the trials and tribulations of being a young musician, a mother of three, and the power of authenticity when growing an online community. In turn, Nelson shares on the struggles he and his wife had trying to conceive. There’s a lot of sharing and it’s honestly quite beautiful. 

From experiencing the feeling of not being enough, dating, pregnancy, getting married at a young age, having kids, and getting divorced — it’s all here.

Kaye’s authenticity is endearing and a revelatory expression of what it feels like to have it all and still not feel happy. And yet, Kaye is still out there, creating valuable content and putting her positive, quirky spin on things. This is Cast of Creators going deep into the feels!

I really allowed my inner thoughts and my inner narrative that I wrote about myself (‘I’m not enough’) and all of the trauma that I experienced, I let that override my success and my potential .
