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.

How to Be a Boss-Mom with Dana Malstaff

In today’s episode, I’m sitting down with Dana Malstaff, the original Boss-Mom and discussing all things Boss-Mom! She talks about how you can have great success in family life and business and what that actually looks like. We talk about what it takes to manage both of these important priorities without feeling bad about it and she gives great advice to new entrepreneurs on sticking with it, even when it seems like no one really cares.

I love how she deals with hate mail and negativity and the legacy she hopes to leave for her children. And, it’s really fun to hear about how this successful woman starts her day. Her answer might surprise you.

BONUS: My Interview with Steve Cook of The Biggest Loser Republished

Today I’m republishing my most downloaded and popular episode over the past 2 years. It was also my very first remote interview, so the audio quality is not the best. I tried really hard to clean it up for you, because the content is really great.

I’m interviewing an old friend and super successful public figure in the fitness community, Steve Cook. Steve is a coach on this season of The Biggest Loser on USA Network, so I hope you will all tune in and watch along with me. Steve talks about his biggest failures, picking up the pieces, struggling to find balance and his philosophies about motivation, losing weight and getting healthy. He also talks about insecurities, critics and how he tricks himself into getting a workout in.

You can find Steve Cook on Instagram, YouTube or most other social media channels @stevecook. You can also watch him on The Biggest Loser or find his app, Fitness Culture on your mobile device.
