    37. Look Good Feel Good with Sarah LaMont

    37. Look Good Feel Good with Sarah LaMont

    In Sarah LaMont's own words: "When I graduated college with a degree in Graphic Design from the
    University of Washington I had a hard time finding a job in my field,
    that is when I secured a second job at Nordstrom in Downtown Seattle as a
    Salesperson in the Women’s Petite Department. Admittedly, I didn’t
    think it was a real job… on my very first day I tended to a 5 feet tall
    woman who was overwhelmed trying to find something memorable to wear to
    her son’s wedding. By the end of the day, not only had we found
    something that made her feel beautiful but had accomplished the same
    challenge for her husband. They were so happy I remember them tipping me
    $100 and told me to use it to buy myself a bottle of vodka because 'I
    deserved it!' This experience was eye opening to me… I always loved
    getting dressed and saw it as a way to express who I was and how I
    wanted people to see me; I cared more about body shape and proportion
    and how fashion could be incorporated into your every day
    lifestyle. While working at Nordstrom I encountered people who didn’t
    see getting dressed as a creative expression but as a stressful hassle…
    and I wanted to help. I do what I love: Styling for both men and
    women, not just for special occasions and events, but for their Saturday
    mornings and casual evenings with their family and friends. I believe
    style should be part of your everyday life and doesn’t have to be full
    of rules and “dry clean only” labels. I started this business so that I
    can help each one of my clients find function and creativity in their
    existing closets and never feel embarrassed to bump into people they
    know while out doing errands again. Why style?… Why not!"

    an "intrapreneur." Her career path has been more of a jungle gym than a
    ladder and she has served as a children’s librarian, trademark

    her career, she excelled and collected all the gold stars. Until she got
    “the promotion that changed everything.” In the midst of overwhelm and a
    massive case of imposter syndrome, Becky found coaching. It changed the
    way she manages her day, leads her team, and loves her family and friends.
    She’s never looked back, and now brings all that goodness to her
    clients.She has more than a decade of experience managing
    multi-million dollar projects, brand new programs, and both in-person
    and remote teams. Becky combines this experience, a degree in leadership
    studies, and a coaching certification to help her clients navigate the
    evolving work landscape by gaining confidence, building resiliency,
    better managing relationships, and developing their unique leadership
    style with less overwhelm and frustration.Becky lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia with her husband, daughter, dog, cat, and growing herd of cows.

    35. What’s a Good Euphemism for Over-Modulated?

    After two guests cancel, Kristen & Sylvia fill the void with a
    fun-filled and informative conversation ranging from the lessons learned
    from the Adam Grant book "Think Again," to a discussion about the
    people in our lives, including "illuminators" and "diminishers," all
    brought to you by our new sponsors: Naked Attraction, Yellow Legal Pads
    & No. 2 Pencils, Coach and Tumi (not really).

    34. Unread e-mails, a Snooze Alarm and Unmade Beds with Jennifer Gonzales

    34. Unread e-mails, a Snooze Alarm and Unmade Beds with Jennifer Gonzales

    Jennifer Gonzales is the Chief of Police of Napa, California, despite the fact that she doesn't make her bed every morning. As our chiefs Kristen and Sylvia try to understand how a person so accomplished can be so negligent toward her own bed, they are blindsided by the number of unread emails in Chief Gonzales' phone and how many snooze alarms she has set every morning. The lesson is that there are many different ways to be the right person for the job, and many different right ways to do the job. We hope you enjoy our conversation with this admitted Star Wars nerd. May the force be with you.
