What Are You Letting Go Of?

January 4, 2018

Hello 2018! So, as we all set our resolutions/goals/mantras/focus areas, what we often forget to do is to figure out what (or who) we're going to let go of in order to actually achieve that goal. 

Today's episode is all about how to do that, what to choose, how to implement it, etc. 

I'd love to hear what you let go of. Tag me on social @girltrieslife

That’s Inappropriate, Hot Mess Express and Not Being Alone with Meredith Masony

December 22, 2017

"You might have cancer."

Those are words that none of us want to hear, especially not if you have three kids at home. When Meredith Masony heard those words, she initially went into productivity mode - cooking freezer meals for her family, considering creating an online dating profile for her partner - but thankfully the surgery proved that she was cancer-free.

The result of an experience like this for Meredith was that she examined the life that she was living and decided that she wanted to do more. She created That's Inappropriate, a community built around ensuring that women don't feel alone in the craziness that can be motherhood, partnership, and general life.

Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has The Time with Brigid Schulte

October 26, 2017

This week on the podcast we're joined by bestselling author and director of the Better Life Lab, Brigid Schulte. Brigid and I mainly talk about her book, Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has The Time.

Sound familiar? 

I fall into the constantly busy category, so Brigid and I discussed how this happened to women in the first place, where women can find more leisure time, how the average worker can try and change their working environment, and how to diminish the desire to 'be it all all the time'.
