    Episode 80: Yes, You Can Look Great on Zoom Calls: Tips and Tricks with Marsha Redmon

    Episode 80: Yes, You Can Look Great on Zoom Calls: Tips and Tricks with Marsha Redmon

    This week on the High Wire Woman podcast, Rosanna Berardi is letting listeners know the tips and tricks to looking good on Zoom. Her guest is Marsha Redmon, a communications expert and CEO of LexTrack Directories Software. Marsha works with lawyers and executives on communication, business development training, and marketing. In this week’s episode, Marsha shares her story, and insights for High Wire Women on improving their virtual presence. 

    You’ll hear Rosanna and Marsha talk about:

    The most important thing about virtual presence and communication is that you need to be good at it, Marsha claims. She firmly believes that the workplace will never go back to being 100% in-person, so it’s necessary for people to master their skills in virtual communication going forward.

    Looking into the camera makes your audience feel like they’re having a one-on-one conversation with you, which builds your relationship with them.

    Overhead lighting is ideal - underhead lighting casts shadows around your face and makes you look old. Furthermore, it’s better to have light shining toward your face rather than behind you; the latter shrouds your face in darkness, and your audience will be unable to read your expressions.

    Sometimes, you don’t have a lot of options when it comes to places to have a virtual call in. In these cases, it’s best to try to minimize your audience’s view of your background as much as possible. You can also try unconventional places like a closet.

    Virtual backgrounds are, more often than not, more distracting than a messy one.

    Great lighting and a clean background are the most necessary components for a professional virtual presence.

    Episode 79: [Replay] How Much Stuff Do You Truly Need?

    Episode 79: [Replay] How Much Stuff Do You Truly Need?

    This week The High Wire Woman is pleased to offer you a replay of one of our popular episodes from last year: How Much Stuff Do You Truly Need. As many of us are considering the post-winter spring clean, it's the time of year to consider what we want taking up space in our lives. Please enjoy this replay, and we'll be back with a new episode next week

    Rosanna Berardi is talking about material things versus interpersonal relationships. In this era of consumerism, it’s easy to get swept away focusing on the gifting part of Christmas instead of what it’s truly about: spending time with your loved ones and sharing experiences together.

    You’ll hear Rosanna talk about:

    How we remember and cherish experiences more than material things. She talks about the trips her family has been on together, and how fond those memories are.

    The instant gratification we’re familiar with. We no longer have to wait for anything, so the holidays and gift giving aren’t as meaningful as they once were. Rosanna emphasizes the importance of gratitude.

    Rosanna’s craving for deep and meaningful relationships over material things. She urges listeners to remember the spirit of the holidays and identify what Christmas means to them.

    Episode 78: Stop Counting Calories and Start Losing Weight with Amber Sandberg

    Episode 78: Stop Counting Calories and Start Losing Weight with Amber Sandberg

    This week on the High Wire Woman podcast, Rosanna Berardi is exploring healthy and sustainable weight loss. Her guest is Amber Sandberg, a certified weight loss coach. Amber is passionate about helping mothers lose weight - for the last time - by tuning into the body’s hunger and fullness without feeling deprived. She is also the host of the Mom Inspired Show podcast, where she creates lasting conversations among moms. In this week’s episode, Amber shares the challenges that prevent women from sustaining weight gain, and what High Wire Women can do to overcome them.

    You’ll hear Rosanna and Amber talk about:

    A major factor that influences someone’s ability to sustain weight gain is their mindset, Amber claims. Sometimes, your weight is a symptom of other things that are happening in your life.

    Women, in general, are prone to eating for comfort - hence the term ‘comfort food’ - because it’s easily available and an enjoyable way to unwind.

    Cutting certain foods out of your life completely may not necessarily help, but at the same time, there may be foods you should avoid due to the state of your health. Having a balanced diet is one of the best and safest ways to lose weight. 

    Amber recommends that listeners drink half their body weight in water each day. If this isn’t feasible, then drink 64 ounces.

    Applying the all-or-nothing mentality to weight loss hinders more than helps - people are so paralyzed by perfection that they would rather do nothing if they can’t achieve ‘plus’ work on the first try. Allowing yourself to do ‘B minus work’ gives you the grace to make mistakes while actually doing what you committed to do.

    Snacking during meals can sabotage your weight loss.

    Episode 77: Women & Sleep: How to Really Get a Good Night’s Sleep with Soda Kuczkowski

    Episode 77: Women & Sleep: How to Really Get a Good Night’s Sleep with Soda Kuczkowski

    This week on the High Wire Woman podcast, Rosanna Berardi is educating listeners about the importance of sufficient and quality sleep. Her guest is Soda Kuczkowski, a certified sleep coach. Soda is the founder of Start With Sleep, an organization that advocates for sleep health and provides resources for health professionals, school systems, and corporate wellness initiatives. In this week’s episode, Soda shares insights about the sleep challenges unique to women and how High Wire Women can push through them.

    You’ll hear Rosanna and Soda talk about:

    Women have a higher threshold for sleep deprivation due to the numerous roles they play, Soda says. Though they sleep more than their male counterparts, they are twice as likely to have issues like insomnia and sleep-related tiredness. 

    Exposure to natural light is important when you wake up in the morning. It’s the start cue to several physiological processes, including the production of serotonin.

    To improve the quality of your sleep, limit your exposure to artificial light from things like your phone and the TV after the sun sets.

    To manage your energy levels, you need to be able to understand your body.

    Soda recommends that listeners wear blue blocker glasses at night when using digital devices. It helps prevent overstimulation.

    Taking supplements isn’t a bad thing, but if you aren’t hydrating enough then you could be depriving your body of magnesium.


    Sleep affects all areas of your health, from physical to mental. It can be challenging, but there are many ways you can improve both your quality and quantity of sleep.

    Episode 76: Get Your Financial House in Order with Caroline Yuki

    This week on the High Wire Woman podcast, Rosanna Berardi is encouraging listeners to get smart with their finances. Her guest, Caroline Yuki, is an award-winning female entrepreneur; she is also a former chemical engineer who helps women build their money and investment platforms. In this week’s episode, Caroline shares money tips all working women need to know, as well as insight on investment and why women should engage in it.   

    You'll hear Rosanna and Caroline talk about:

    You should never let anyone else take control of your finances. Invest confidence in your own decisions, and never leave it up to someone else. 

    It's important to know and understand the basics of finance. 

    Caroline talks about creating Cash Flow Queen to help educate other women about finance, and help them build confidence in their decisions. Cash Flow Queen is about building a holistic view of wealth building. 

    Wealth building is not just about being frugal. It's about making more money, spending less than you earn, and investing smartly. All these aspects have to work together. 

    Caroline talks about the importance of having multiple streams of income. 

    The goal of making your money work for you is so that you can lessen your hours of work.


    As working women, you can't ignore your finances. Finance is confusing and a lot to take in at first, but there are tools to help you and those tools can help make your money work for you.
