If you are going,  or have gone through, a divorce, this episode is for you.  It is time to loose the shame you may have and realize that a divorce can be your new beginning.  Divorce is not something that we need to feel bad about or believe that we have failed.  A divorce may just be the path you needed to travel, in order to get to the life you want.  We discuss how to be open and honest with your children, and why being honest is not teaching them that you don't believe in the value of marriage.  We, of course, talk about dating again, and how and why you need to be real about why you are dating, and what you want from your dating experience.  We also discuss why you don't have to box with your ex, just because he invites you in to the ring.  That was a lightbulb moment for me!

Don't feel guilty about wanting to look Hot, Lose Weight, Get in shape, with Lauren Hubert
Episode 87, and you will love listening to this fun talk with Lauren Hubert MS, RD, who is the Registered Dietitian and Weight Loss Expert behind The Sorority Nutritionist. After gaining nearly 20 pounds as a freshman at Florida State University, Lauren was left struggling with her self-confidence and insecure about the way she looked. Determined to lose the weight, Lauren began her weight loss journey sparking an intense interest in food and exercise. Like many young women, to shed the weight she began running for hours every day and cutting out calories from her diet, leading her to being super restrictive with her food choices and scared to go out to drink with her sorority sisters. It wasn’t until she began studying nutrition and changed her degree to Dietetics that she totally realized the self destructive dieting path she was going down. Lauren and I talk about why there is a stigma today about wanting to look hot, lose weight, look good.  Like there is anything wrong with that?  Listen while we break down some of these barriers and have real talk about how it is OK to want it all, a career, a family, and still look, um, HOT!  You can find Lauren at or on Instagram @sorority.nutrionist You got this.

She has recorded over 400 audio books for various publishers.  She has appeared as an actor in  The Good Wife, Law and Order SVU, and Virgin River for Netflix. This episode is a reminder and proof that it does not matter what path you have chosen to walk in life, that we have all have a desire to make a connection, and to find our passion.  Listen as  Therese shares with us how she kept on the path to follow her dreams.  She went to New York by herself at age 26 and found the courage by overcoming her fear, and staying on track, even though many believed she was too old to pursue this dream.  She had those voices in her head, telling her she was crazy to think she could do this, but chose not to believe that voice and keep following her passion. She believes getting out in nature and staying grounded helped to keep her out of the crazy of NYC. She reveals the challenges she had as an adolescent and her recovery, which she shared for the first time on a podcast.  That success has motivated her to keep finding the peace.   She also discusses the important of having a support group around her and her brave bitches, the Lady Fingers.  This episode will resonate with you on so many levels, we hope you love the time with Therese as we did.

Turning Your Health Around, with Suzanne Carpenter
Episode  73  .  We are talking with Suzanne Carpenter,  who helps us clear up food confusion so you can win at losing weight. She created CarpenterOne80 to equip people with the tools they need to help them lose weight while living a lifestyle they love. She knows that people want to lose weight, usually to feel more confident in some area of their life. The problem is, food is everywhere and there are many misconceptions about how to eat, when to eat, or what to eat. That’s why she calls it food confusion!  There are two problems people face when creating change; one, they don’t have the resources to devote to it and, two, they experience information overload. Suz, as her friends call her, can’t stand the idea that people are waiting on weight. Waiting to wear the clothes they love, waiting to stand in the front of the picture, waiting to be IN the picture, waiting on the job or the raise, waiting on the relationship. It must end. You need to live NOW!  We hope that our listeners resonate with her message.I. Maybe you want to do something but you’re not sure what. Maybe you need help getting started. Maybe you’re on the verge of burn- out. Wherever you are, If any of these apply, get ready, sit back and listen as Suz takes us through how she can help.  She named her company CarpenterOne80 because: CARPENTER: A person who builds, makes, and repairs ONE: A single decision or action 80: Number of days required to form a solid habit Suz has a special offer for our brave listeners who sign up for her SOS, if you put in the code BRAVE, at checkout,  she has 4 different amazing grocery lists for you.

Abby started her career in Wildland fire, on an elite Hotshot Crew.  Continuing on in her career she became a helicopter rappeller, Engine Captain, and moved up the chain of command to battalion chief.  Abby fought and managed fire beside the best of the best in the industry. In 2012, while on assignment, Abby was sexually assaulted by a firefighter who was not a member of her team. Her trust in leadership quickly went up in flames.  She realized not only would she have advocated for herself in this situation… as a leader, she was going to have to be an advocate and teach others how to lead with F.I.R.E. (fearless, integrity, resilience and empathy). In her quest for justice, Abby spent countless hours searching for solutions and found none.  With that realization, she set out to create the resources that were lacking.  Abby now draws from her experience in leadership, as well as the wisdom she learned as a firefighter to coach others how to lead with fire in their lives, in the workplace and beyond. Abby is dedicated to inspiring community, moral courage and a new generation of great leaders.  Her powerful keynotes and workshops include:  Lead with F.I.R.E: Be the leader you would want to go into a fire with, Ending the Crisis of Harassment: Inspiring the Hard Right over Easy Silence, Speak Up to Stand Out: Creating an environment of courage and integrity in the workplace.

Carpe Diem, with Riane Puno
Episode 53- Riane Puno is the host of Alma Matters, a unique podcast that explores the school experiences and career trajectories – the good, the bad and the ugly – of some of the greatest entrepreneurial and creative minds. She's also a girl in her early twenties, who was plucked out of the Philippines and planted in New York, trying to navigate adulthood, mental health, her identity, career, love and life. Riane graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and, after hating her first job and listening to podcasts to make the day go by, she realized that there was nothing that really captured the highs and lows of the whole path to success, from the days at school to being at the helm of a company or being the star of a TV show or being a change-maker in (insert industry here). Being unhappy at work, being lost when it comes to your future ambitions, joining a company out of pressure and not passion – these are all cyclical trends that people don't talk enough about. Through Alma Matters, she wants to try and break the cycle by asking accomplished people all the questions that students, young professionals and whoever else struggling in a job wants answered too. What classes shaped their future paths? What were the biggest lessons that still resonate today? What pivotal experiences have defined their careers? Most importantly, what advice do they have for people wanting to follow their passions in the same way? She sets out to educate and inspire, and hopefully she's done her job.

Finding Balance is a load of SHIT!
The elusive work-life balance everyone tries to find.......It does not exist. Bev & Heather discuss why you need to stop chasing it and instead, recognize that we have work-life rhythms. Sometimes, we have peaks of craziness and other times we've got it nailed, but you can’t schedule that ebb and flow; rather, you need to recognize different seasons in your life. By trying to BALANCE our lives, we are setting ourselves up for failure. We are looking at social media and comparing ourselves to a perceived balance. Stop. Be you. Be present and be authentic and your life will unfold in a beautiful harmony. Find Bev & Heather at: Instagram: BitchesBeBrave, Facebook: Bitches Be Brave and Email us at:

Protecting Our Kids In A Digital World, how much is too much, how to go from mean to mighty, with Katey McPherson
This episode is MUST to listen to if you have kids or teens. Katey discusses how this generation is the least courageous and resilient of all times, and we need to look at how we parent our kids to change this. Parents need to model good digital behavior for our kids and set blocks of time that are digital free. Before our kids get a device, we need to identify: What is the function desired?, What is the value of the device? and What is the desired outcome? We need to create boundaries and restrictions with our kids and show them that we support them, so they will come to us when there is an issue. Learn why not all screen time is bad. Kids want us to listen, strategize and give them tactical solutions. We need to learn to acknowledge their needs and offer support and understanding. Criteria, markers for digital success: Grades, Behavior, Social/Emotional wellness Katey tells us that If we do 1 thing: Randomly check our kids phone, Have a central charging station - NO Phones in the bedroom (parents too!).  To improve communication: The No Trouble Bubble, Tech Night Tuesday and Crash & Tell For more information on how to stay on top of apps and social media, check out Katey's recommendations: Websites:, Documentaries: #Being 13, Screenagers Books: Glowkids, Untangled, Saving our Sons, The Self Driven Child, IGEN Routers: Apps: BARK Find Bev & Heather at: Instagram: Bitchesbebrave Facebook: Being Brave Email: Twitter: Bitchesbebrave
