April Topic Talk

A great conversation with Jenna, Bentley and Sherry as they share their experiences with anger and fear. We talk about women and the societal pressure to not express our anger, or emotions while in a business setting, or most any other public setting. How many of us internalize and repress our anger, fear and so many other emotions and how we can learn from that and find paths to be better for ourselves and to ourselves.

I mention a couple of books in the episode, one exclusive to Audible and one available anywhere you buy books as well as on audible. I am finding that Audible really helps me to stay focused and I can listen on the road, while walking etc.

Mel Robbins: an Audible original, Take Control of your Life https://www.audible.com/pd/Take-Control-of-Your-Life-Audiobook

Carol Dweck: Mindset, the new psychology of success

Episode 27: Laura Preston

Show notes:

Laura joins Sherry to talk about her life on the road living in a vintage airstream and how that led her to creating her company, Vacilando Quilting. She and her husband have been living on the road for 6 years and have seen a lot of changes over the years with the campsites and roads filled with more people living the same style of life.

Laura also speaks about teaching herself to quilt, dealing with insecurities around her knowledge and experience and how she has moved beyond those to writing her first book for beginning quilters. She also speaks about trying to keep creativity fueled and stay fresh and excited about her work.

You can find her work on her website: https://www.vacilandoquilting.co/

Laura also “broadcasts” as she says her life on Instagram: vacilando quilting

Today Sherry speaks with Bentley and Jenna about pivotal and defining moments in our lives. Please be aware that there are references to mental health issues, including self harm. I wanted to be clear about that up front so that if you have any triggers around any of that you are aware before you listen.

Jenna talks about losing her mom unexpectedly at a young age and her struggle to process through that. Bentley talks about her marriage falling apart, having an affair with a woman, therapy and finding her way to start over with almost nothing from her previous life. Sherry speaks about her bout with depression, medication and finding her way beyond while having to go back and deal with some lingering issues.

Episode 11: Tamra Brannon of Outlaw Woman

Show Notes:

Tamra has incredible stories to share, we touched on topics of her journey to her present company and work, mental health and anxiety, PTSD, trauma and her heart wrenching story of holding a 15 year old teen as he died from gunshot wounds on the street. You will be touched by her indomitable spirit, her capacity to face adversity and find a way through, her work to give back, and her desire to live unapologetically as herself every day, in all aspects of her life. I love talking with this woman and can’t wait to have her back to share more. I believe she is an angel walking among us, shining her light while wearing sweats and a bandana and only shaving one leg a month! Do yourself a favor and listen to this several times, there is so much here to absorb.
