    Take the Chance with Jen Mann

    Take the Chance with Jen Mann

    Have you ever wanted to punch people in the throat? Of course, you have. So has our guest today. Jen Mann started blogging because she wanted to punch people in the throat but writing about was a better option. Tired of the perfect parenting blog depiction of parenting, Jen set out to tell her truth. When her blog about the Elf on the Shelf went viral in 2011, she found herself with new followers and a new focus. Jen reminds us to use our anger for good, how to not take yourself too seriously, and how showing up as your real self, is freeing. Listen in and laugh along with April and Jen as they discuss life, motherhood, and living in today’s world.
     
    Highlights of today’s show:
    ·       Think about what deserves your outrage.
    ·       Use your anger for good.
    ·       Find humor in things, even the hard things.
    ·       Step back from fights when you’ve said what you have to say.
    ·       Remember to laugh and drop the f-bomb when necessary!

    Don’t Compromise Who You Are with Dr. Kay Banks

    Have you lost your identity in your job? In your marriage? It’s not fair to call it a midlife crisis because it’s not quite that. It’s a realization that you aren’t happy, being, or doing what you want. What do you do when this happens? Today Dr. Kay and April discuss a path forward when you have that moment. Sometimes, you need to figure out if you really need to compromise or if you’re just incompatible with your job, partner, or life choices. Listen in and get ready to get back out there and be your full self. It’s time to start living again!
     Take Aways:
    ·       Realize things happen in different stages.
    ·       Set a routine.
    ·       Acknowledge the feelings.
    ·       Pivot to happiness.
