    S3E17: Wine with Me: Talking Student Loan Forgiveness

    S3E17: Wine with Me: Talking Student Loan Forgiveness

    Disclaimer: This video/podcast contains explicit language and covers topics that might cause you to use explicit language too. I might hurt some feelings and make folks mad. These are my own thoughts and opinions and do not reflect the views of my employer/previous employers. I am not a financial advisor, certified coach, or medical professional. Just wanted to make sure you knew these things upfront today.

    Now to the show...

    Today I’m drinking wine and talking through student loan forgiveness. I lay out the basics of what student loans are, the different types of loans, the calculators, etc etc. Then I talk through my journey. Then we cover the Student Loan Forgiveness information that was released on August 24, 2022. I go through some articles and finally...I review some of the posts that made me...fiesty.

    This is a 2.5 hour episode so grab your beverage of choice and chill or listen while you the chores you hate. I’m happy to keep you company either way.

    Laughter, Love, and Blessings,
    Heather

    S3E16: Do a New Thing w/Christa Hutchins

    S3E16: Do a New Thing w/Christa Hutchins

    After almost 3 years, Christa and I finally got to sit down for a conversation. We met at Blissdom in late 2019 and I was instantly drawn to her passion for helping others. She is a project manager by trade, then was called by God to help His girls. Christa started to volunteer with Proverbs 31, using her project management skills to help them grow. Over the years, she has continued to work in the corporate world and build her business. Christa shares how God has lead her through all the twists and turns of stepping into her calling. Doanewthing.com is the go to spot to see Christa’s book, journal, podcast, and mastermind.

    S3E15: Book Review - How to keep house while drowning by KC Davis, LPC

    S3E15: Book Review - How to keep house while drowning by KC Davis, LPC

    After seeing so many people online recommend the book, “How to keep house while drowning” by KC Davis, LPC, I decided to pick it up and read it. I really enjoyed her approach to cleaning and organizing. I had a lot of things marked in the book to mention but did not get through them all. I definitely recommend picking up this book physically or e-book style.

    You can find KC Davis online at https://www.strugglecare.com.

    Laughter, Love, and Blessings,
    Heather

    S3E14: Unscripted Fun - Deep Thoughts on Nothing

    Today’s episode is all about nothing. I mean it’s not dead air, but I just had some fun talking about the random things going on in my life. It’s just some unscripted fun catch up from the last few weeks. I cover mocktails, sunscreen, the account that might make me get TikTok, and more randomness. Come along for laughs and fun!

    S3E13: Talking Creativity w/Martha Arrington

    On today’s podcast, I welcome Martha Arrington. She is a painter, a certified zentangle instructor, educator, and amazing human. I met Martha on Instagram awhile back and instantly became a fan of her work. It’s truly beautiful and unique, just like Martha. Through our conversations over DMs, I knew that I wanted to learn more about her story and her take on creativity. I hope you enjoy this creative conversation.

Authenticity that Inspires

I love listening to Heather because she is so obviously authentic and shares her experiences in a relatable way. She inspires me to be authentic and not hold back in turn. She’s like listening to a friend and I’m always nodding along like, “yep” “Say WHAT” “oh I’ll need to google that later.”
