March Topic Talk

We’re back for another episode of Topic Talk for March. This time we are working with a grab bag of questions and discuss empathy for others, friendships and the strangest question we have ever been asked. As usual we have fun, get serious and laugh.

Thanks for listening!

Episode 23: Bentley

Bentley is one of my co-hosts for the monthly Topic Talk series and a total rock star who has been creating her life after some changes. Her honesty is inspiring and her firm belief in herself is so badass! I always love our conversations and her input. This is her solo episode after all of our Topic Talk episodes, it was time for her to shine in her solo conversation.

Episode 22: Pat Bailey

Joining me today is Pat Bailey, my friend and mentor who helped me harness all of my abundant ideas into the spaces I have created so far. She talks about how she kept following the “Hell Yes or it’s a No” philosophy to create her business of helping other women find their way. Pat is also a travel writer, who goes to far away places and last summer moved to Paris as her home base.

Episode 19: February Topic Talk

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.

You can find us all on Instagram.

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.
