The three of us have all found ourselves working at home in the past several months, rather than the on-site, in-office situation we were previously used to. We’ve enjoyed some of the obvious perks — PJ pants all day everyday? Love it! But how do we really feel about our makeshift home offices, and what’s it like starting a brand new job remotely? Work life has changed drastically for many of us in the past several months, and this week we talk about some of the strange new ups and downs of working from home.
Our country feels anything but united these days. The political and social issues in the news have been sparking strong feelings and intense conversations; it’s safe to say passions are running high. You know how it goes: One minute you’re casually scrolling Facebook and see an offensive meme, the next you’re being ALL-CAPS screamed at by your old college roommate’s uncle. In this episode we talk about the ways social media and rampant misinformation play a part in today’s struggle to have a civil or productive discussion.
This week, we talk about an unexpected and sudden hobby that all three of us inexplicably started up this summer: running. While none of us consider ourselves “runners,” listen in to find out why we consistently choose to struggle through the streets of our neighborhoods, panting and sweating and swearing, rather than hang out on the couch and watch Netflix like sane people.
Have you guys seen the pics of the amazing new fireplace Danie and her husband just built in their house? Many of us have found that spending more time at home has inspired us to get some projects done around the house, whether because we all finally have time to tackle those big chores on our list or because we just need a change after staring at the same living space for months on end. But when spouses or partners take on a big project together, things can get tense pretty quickly. This week we talk about working with our husbands on some recent DIY undertakings and things we’ve learned about them — and ourselves — in the process.
What better way to follow up a series about overcoming childhood struggles than to interview someone who has built a business around the idea of leveraging trauma into success? We had the pleasure of chatting with Cassandra Shuck, an entrepreneurial guide and business coach who helps female entrepreneurs work through their past in order to knock down the internal barriers holding them back from building thriving businesses. Cassandra is a serial entrepreneur herself and has launched several successful ventures, four of which she is currently running — not to mention her podcast, blog, speaking engagements … and she has a toddler! So, if you’re in the mood to be inspired, tune in!
