    This is a tape-in extension hate podcast with Lexie Rainholt | Ep.64

    This is a tape-in extension hate podcast with Lexie Rainholt | Ep.64

    Lexie Rainbolt (hairbylexie) has been running my FYP, so it was only natural to have her on the podcast to talk about all things hair as we approach the holiday season. She shares her experience moving to Florida from her small town in Illinois, (without her 7 year boyfriend!!!), the importance of social media for hairstylists, and her do’s/don’ts. We talk extensions - hence the title, how to grow your hair, trends, pet peeves, and which trend Lexie wants to leave in 2022.

    My acne is stressing me out - does cycle syncing really work | Ep. 63

    I’ve struggled with acne for years, but lately my breakouts have felt much more personal.

Doctors appointments, Europe trip recap, and work updates, enjoy a solo episode today!

Favorite Podcast and Person on the Internet!!!

Jenna has done such a fantastic job with this podcast and the FOW brand! I have been following Jenna since her first viral video about applying to work at Tik Tok. It has been so fun to watch her and the FOW brand grow! Jenna approaches each topic with grace, vulnerability, and honesty. Even when the topic of the podcast is maybe more serious, I still feel a weight lifted off of my shoulders by the end.

BFF in your pocket

My only issue with FOW podcast is that I didn’t find it sooner! Love listening to Jenna’s take on entrepreneurship, corporate life, transitioning into adulthood, and more. I recently found FOW on LinkedIn (of all places!?) and now tune in weekly for her raw and unfiltered commentary. As a corporate gal who also owns a small business, I’m here for Fun on Weekdays everyday! Hoping for an event in Georgia to meet Jenna!

Fun podcast

Ok this podcast is so fun. I rated it a 4 because there are some episodes that I don’t feel are beneficial at all but it might be my age too. I’m 29 and married. But I love the episodes with opportunities to learn and take great advice! I also find Jenna’s voice relaxing. Sometimes I listen to podcasts and the voices of the girls are cringe. LOL.
