    Refresh: I know I needed a refresh this week and so I am delighted to share this conversation with Reena Friedman Watts: Entrepreneur, podcaster, mom of four kids, wife, coach, community grower, storytelling junkie. You’ll want to listen for the recurring chorus of fail better, keep doing your best, tell your story, your voice matters, shine on.

  • Renewal: Loving the Unlovable — Conversation with Tamara Brown

    Renwal: Our theme for the week led me to a new podcast series: “Loving the Unlovable” First up, a conversation with my sister, Tamara Brown. Her MA in Human Development is what got me to call her but it was our relationship as sisters that helped us talk about the unlovable. What makes us lovable? Why is that such a cringey question?

  • Persistence: Conversation with Stan Smith

    Persist! It’s those little efforts we make that, over time, move mountains. Today I get to share the first part of a two part conversation with Stan Smith, social worker and adjunct professor of social work at USC (University of Southern California). So, awhile back, I asked Stan about children as possibly the most vulnerable members of our society. He responded with: “We are the vulnerable ones who are afraid of that vulnerability.” I start this episode off with that exchange, and we go from
