Season 2, #19: Summer Sauciness
Summer is winning at both Adriénne’s & Jenifer’s homes. But these two everyday experts keep challenging one another to level up in work & life… with the usual fun & ferocity of their trusted friendship. This month, they look for the light at the end of the summer tunnel, in the form of travel plans for Adriénne’s krewe and school starting soon for Jenifer’s kids. They discuss parenting, professionalism, and the many things that inspire and comfort them in times of difficult transitions.
At Brazen BFF podcast, blog, & community, we help each other level up in work and life. If you want more out of your work or life, you have come to the right place!
In an effort to embrace her new homeschooling lifestyle, Adriénne planned a family vacation around the total solar eclipse, and also booked a house in Asheville, NC for a month when presented with attending two different weddings taking place there 3 weeks apart.
Jenifer took herself on a date!! She abolished negative self-talk, visited a consignment store (Sassy Fox), took herself to dinner, ordered the duck, took a walk, & went home after the kids were in bed to eat ice cream by herself & watch TV.
Take-away: Treat yourself the way you would expect to be treated by others on a date!!
Adriénne’s Brazen BFF is her husband Manoli – for his unconditional support. Also, Jenifer reminds us that it was Manoli who helped encourage the Brazen BFF friendship in the first place! Thanks, Manoli!
Jenifer calls out Neisha Himes – who started GROW foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps victims and survivors of domestic violence find the resources needed to lead a safe and productive life and the encouragement to believe they deserve to. She was the guest on Brazen BFF Podcast Episode #10: Beautiful Dizaster. She also introduced Jenifer, Adriénne, and her daughter Maia to the sport of boxing!
