Episode 154: Melanie Dale



It’s that time again for another crossover episode with my good friend, Melanie Dale. Each month, Melanie and I sit down and have a conversation about a topic that we are both surviving and that we could lighten up about. So one part is here and the part of the conversation is on her show, Lighten Up with Melanie Dale. So be sure to hop over there when are you are finished listening to this one.

Today, we talk about the jobs we dreamed of having as kids, what work looked like for us before and after having kids, ways to be present wherever you are, tips to be more efficient and some survival skills when it comes to managing your family.

I feel like sarah is always talking to incredibly relevant, intelligent and awesome people with very relevant and helpful topics. There really is something for everyone here. I’m so addicted that I’ve started going back in time and listening to all the old ones.”
