This week we meet with Candice “Candy” Harper, professional love coach and matchmaker, to discuss what finding love is like in the year 2020. Between cancel culture, social injustice, a pandemic, and quarantine – how does someone begin to make a genuine connection with another human who wants to make a difference in the world alongside them?
In our first episode of our F*ck That series, Carrie tells us about the time where she was mercilessly bullied in school and how she dealt with it… and we touch briefly on where the bully is now. (Spoiler alert: she may be a few fries short of a happy meal - and she’s still pretty mean).
Since we’ve talked a lot about layoffs and job searching quite a bit since the pandemic broke out and unemployment shot through the roof, we decided to continue that thread with an episode on the dreaded job interview! We throw a fun spin on a terrifying topic by round robin-ing some interview questions -- both typical and off-the-wall -- to each other. Maybe someone out there will take some tips away from our “mock” interview, or maybe we just spouted a lot of nonsense, but either way, it was a good conversation
Parenting in a pandemic is a new experience for all of us. Some of us are dealing with life changes well. Some of us... not so much. Either way, it’s thrown all of us for a loop. We are spending a lot more time with our kids than we had originally planned and thinking about what school is going to look like in the fall is anxiety-inducing. Listen to this week’s episode to hear us chat about what our parenting life has been life on this pandemic rollercoaster.
This week we are lucky enough to have another wonderful guest, Pranali Lad, a business analyst/product owner and cancer survivor who has become well-versed on the twists and turns of the immigration process since she and her husband moved here from India. Plus, she makes a mean cupcake! She shares some inspiring stories of perseverance and offers solid advice for finding the strength to keep going when things get rocky.
