GUEST POST: Insights from 5 Weeks of Remote Work

GUEST POST: Insights from 5 Weeks of Remote Work

Meet Jessica Trainor - a classically trained singer, voice teacher, and Career and Life Coach. She used to underpin this trifecta with a day job. But, she realized that if she kept treating her passions as a hobby (underpinned by a toxic work environment), she would not hit the goals she had for performance and teaching career. She ditched the traditional career path, hasn't looked back for almost a year, and just travelled for five weeks and worked remotely during that time. Here are some initial insights from her time away! 

RAR Ep. 19 - Real Women Are Mothers, Featuring Chaele Davis

RAR Ep. 19 - Real Women Are Mothers, Featuring Chaele Davis

We live in a crazy world, and it's getting crazier. For many women, it's not a world they want to bring a child into - and that's just ONE reason why women are having fewer and fewer children. In the 1970s, one in ten women reached menopause without giving birth to a child. But by 2010, it was one in five, according to data gathered by the Pew Research Center, and one in four for women with a bachelor’s degree. In Episode 19, we interview Chaele Davis, who has known she didn't want children since she found out that was an option. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Chaele is a Sarah Lawrence graduate and Institute of Culinary Education trained pastry chef and baker. She chats with us about the stigmas she has faced, how she handled those encounters, and why not having children is right for her. Please have a listen, and let us know what resonates with you!

Ep. 16 - Everyone Celebrates Differently, Vol. 2

Welcome to Episode 15, the first of two special holiday episodes that have one singular purpose: to find out how people celebrate the holidays? Everyone celebrates differently, and there's no right way!  We picked several spectacular humans, and asked them if and how they celebrate this time of year. Do they make margaritas on Christmas Eve? Do they swallow 12 grapes before midnight? Do they carry empty suitcases around the block? You'll never know unless you listen!
