    More than a High: A Medicinal marijuana discussion

    If you're like the hosts of Trash the Checklist Podcast, then you probably grew up inundated with information about how bad marijuana was for you. But within the past 10 years, the research and some of the social taboo around marijuana use, especially for medicinal purposes, has led to some great discoveries about how the plant can benefit so many people in so many way.

    Trash the Checklist welcomes Ms. Amber Demby, of Ash and Ember dispensary in Centreville, MD to take them on the beginnings of a journey to understanding and respecting the ways that the plant can be good. #CBD #MedicalMarijuana #LegalWeed #PlantBased #RemoveTheStigma #HowHigh

    Girl, Get your Money Right: A Conversation for Financial Empowerment

    Girl, Get your Money Right: A Conversation for Financial Empowerment

    Yolanda and Tiffany take a moment to evaluate how far they've come since 2021's Financial Literacy Awareness month. And they admit, they're coming along, but have a way to go.  But they know they aren't the only ones who find dealing with wealth and finances to be a challenge. Thankfully, there are people like Jayne Ellegard, the founder of Ellegant Wealth, who have taken the step to fill in the gap for women where their finances are concerned.

    Jayne has over 30 plus years of experience in the financial management world and has brought her expertise and wealth building philosophy to her own company to coach and help women pursue their visions for financial happiness. She uses her own "Six Pillars" approach to breaking down many of the barriers that women often have to breach in order to feel empowered about their own money. #GetMoney #FinancialLiteracyMonth #EllegantWealth #TrashTheChecklist

Real Talk

Dr. Yolanda and Tiffany speak so passionately about their life experiences in a way that captivated the listener and leaves you nodding your head along with what they’re saying because there’s so much truth that people our age identify with. This is one of those podcasts that people in their 20s need to listen to so they don’t get caught up in their own checklists.

Blessed Growth!

I finally finished the 1st season of Trash the Checklist. I truly like the actionable future items detailed in the expansion for SEASON 2 coming soon. This is real life talk and walk and I for one have been on a TRASH THE CHECKLIST drive for self motivation.

M LeGrande ,

Refreshing and honest!

I loved the opening episodes of “Trash the Checklist” and I’m ready for more. Yolanda and Tiffany bring a familial vibe to the podcast and it feels like I’m just relaxing with my close friends. Their commentary about how life is ever-changing is refreshing. And their honesty about their own selves and their friendship is just fun. I’ve loved the topics so far - people pleasing, owning your own goals, boundaries. It’s all been great. Can’t wait for more!
