Lowering the Bar and Laughing Through the Hard with Joanne Jarrett

Joanne Jarrett smiling in a pretty pink sweater

My guest today is a family physician, turned stay at home mama, turned podcaster and clothing designer. She has many talents, but my favorite is the ability to find humor in the everyday. She teaches women how to lower the bar for each other and share their foibles and most embarrassing moments to connect and create more joy.

Joanne believes that no matter what you are experiencing, you are not alone. Reach out to those who look like they feel how you feel and let them now that they are not alone either. I loved this episode and I know that you will too.

After you listen to this interview, please head over to her Fancy Free Podcast and listen to my interview with her about How To Raise Capable Kids. I share my most embarrassing and mom fails and reassure you if you are struggling with any phase of mom life, that you are definitely not alone.
