WPR056: Random Updates and Summer Break!

WPR056: Random Updates and Summer Break!

Episode Summary:

Just wanted to record a quick message for you all, and let you know that the Working Parent Resource Podcast will be taking a little break for the Summer. I have a lot of different things going on in July and August which I'll share about here, and I also know summer is a busy time for all of you families out there too. So I thought it would be a good time to take a little hiatus and come back all refreshed and energized in September. In this episode I talk about what's going on for me personally, professionally, and what's coming in the Fall.

WPR055: Practical Relationship Tips to Increase Communication and Connection in Your Marriage with Dr. Yael Schonbrun

WPR055: Practical Relationship Tips to Increase Communication and Connection in Your Marriage with Dr. Yael Schonbrun

Episode Summary:

I am so excited to have Dr. Yael Schonbrun back on the show with me today. I interviewed Yael back on episode WPR024 about Striking the Right Balance Between Career Ambition and an Engaged Family Life. Today, we are diving into the topic of communication in relationships. I’ve said this before on this show, and I’m sure I’ll say it a hundred more times: I believe the foundation of a family starts with the parents who are leading it. There’s so much to do as working parents, and I know from first-hand experience how easy it is to put your marriage on the back-burner as other demands take over. So I’m thrilled that Yael was able to return to the show and offer her advice and insights around how to really connect with your partner as you juggle your career and kids and running the household and everything else that you do on a daily basis.

Yael is a clinical psychologist in private practice and an assistant professor at Brown University. In her spare time, she is a stay at home mother to her three boys. Her book exploring the psychology of straddling ambitious professional and engaged family life is coming out soon as well.

WPR054: The Courage Habit: The Key to Breaking Free from Your Limitations with Kate Swoboda

WPR054: The Courage Habit: The Key to Breaking Free from Your Limitations with Kate Swoboda

Episode Summary:

Courage isn’t a topic that I’ve talked about a lot on this show, but after learning a little more about the work that Kate Swoboda is doing, I was excited to invite her on the show. One of the things I really want to do on the Working Parent Resource Podcast is pull back the curtains on what’s REALLY motivating our behavior as working parents. I see a lot of solutions out there to help overwhelmed working parents, but a lot of them only address the surface level of the complex issues that parents are facing. Today Kate and I are diving much deeper into what really holds people back from pursuing a life that feels really GOOD for them. We talk about the reality of establishing new habits, and how our habits really are the foundation of the life we live. Kate not only offers some really interesting insights, but she also offers very practical action steps for you to take as you begin to implement these things into your own life.

Kate Swoboda is the creator of YourCourageousLife.com, Director of the Courageous Living Coach Certification at TribeCLCC.com, and author of the book, The Courage Habit. Her work has appeared in USA Today, Forbes, Entrepreneur, MindBodyGreen, and more. The Courage Habit discusses the connection between the psychology of courage and the neuropsychology of habit-formation, and the tools can be used in leadership, parenting, with creativity, and more.

WPR052: Getting Your Kids Organized with Susie Salinas

WPR052: Getting Your Kids Organized with Susie Salinas

Episode Summary:

Today’s episode is all about getting your kid’s stuff organized! I don’t know about you, but one of the biggest challenges my husband and I have is keeping all of our kid’s stuff in order. As soon as my older son was born, we immediately started accumulating kid gear: strollers, toys, clothes, books… the list is endless. And now that there are two of them, it’s multiplying exponentially. The conversation I have with my guest today, Susie Salinas, was so helpful in creating some structure in our home when it comes to our kid’s stuff.

Susie Salinas is a mom of 3, military spouse, and owner of “Systems by Susie,” a business that helps busy moms develop long-term, easy-to-maintain solutions to keep their homes, their lives, and their kids organized and stress-free. She also has an online shop where she sells School Memory Boxes and other ready-made organizing solutions.
