Girls Night #236: How She Does It: Behind-the-Scenes with HGTV Designer and Builder, Jasmine Roth
Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night! Friends, I’m so excited because today we’re starting a brand new series on the Girls Night Podcast! The series is called “How She Does It” and in it we’re sharing profiles of women we look up to. Here’s what I’ve been learning over the past decade or so of my life — Women, including myself, feel an intense pressure (especially between the ages of 25-40ish) for their lives to look a certain way, and it can be crushing. It’s even more crushing to glance around at the women ahead of you in life, and for it to seem like they’re somehow doing it all without breaking a sweat. So that’s what these episodes are going to help us with. About once a month, I’ll have a woman come on the show to talk through the story of why she is who she is today. We’ll hear everything from the pressures and pushback she’s faced to what she’s had to give up to be where she is today. We’ll also talk about what things she does or, maybe more importantly, doesn’t do to make it all happen! I’m so excited because our first “How She Does It” profile is with my guest, Jasmine Roth. Jasmine is a California-based designer and builder. You might recognize her from her HGTV show, “Help! I Wrecked My House!” I’ve been following Jasmine and watching her show for years now and I absolutely love the work that she does.  In this conversation you’ll hear about her job as a designer and builder, but you’ll also hear about her time in corporate America, the areas of life where she’s needed to ask for help, her battle with overcoming mom guilt, her experience with going to therapy, her best tips for having success, and so much more! My hope is that by hearing what life looks like for women like Jasmine, you’ll be able to see women who are living in beautifully unique ways that are all their own — and feel permission to do the same.

Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night! I’m so excited about today’s episode. Today we’re talking about how to take charge of your finances and actually enjoy the process! I’m excited about this episode because if you’re anything like me, figuring out what to do with your money – how to save, how to invest, where to spend, where not to spend — can feel a bit overwhelming at times, especially when you don’t have a degree in finance or you weren’t taught this information in school (anyone else wish there was a budgeting 101 class in middle school, or, you know, college?! 😂)  But, thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way! Taking charge of your finances is easier than you think — and can actually be fun! And I have the perfect person to walk us through this! Our guest for today’s episode is Katie Gatti Tassin. Katie is the founder and host of the growing personal finance media company Money with Katie. I’ve been following along with Katie for years now and her advice on money has been invaluable in my journey of becoming more confident in my finances! (Her content is also just so much fun. She’s this dynamite combination of brilliant and hilarious. You guys are going to love hearing from her!) So make sure you grab your coffee and a notepad — you’re going to love this conversation!

I’m talking about New Year’s resolutions, or lack thereof (More about that in the episode!) and how to ask for help this year!  Here’s the thing, I love a reset as much as anybody, a fresh start. But the expectation that it all needs to happen on the first day of a new year is a lot of pressure. (And leaves you feeling like you’ve already failed just two weeks in). So today I’m sharing what I do instead! Along with that, we’re talking about what it looks like to ask for help in the new year and why it’s one of the most important things you can do for yourself! Oh, and make sure you stick around until the end of the conversation, because I will be sharing a super exciting announcement about the podcast that you won’t want to miss!

Girls Night #229: How to Find Joy When You’re Feeling Stressed and Anxious — with Raquelle Stevens
Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night! I’m so excited about today’s episode. Today we’re talking about how to find joy when you’re feeling stressed and anxious. I don’t think it’s any secret that there’s a lot happening in our world right now. There are heartbreaking things and scary things and heavy things happening in other people’s lives and our own lives. And on top of that, there are pressures each of us face on a daily basis at work and at home. It’s a lot to carry. And it really doesn’t help when we are scrolling through social media and seeing hundreds of people who seem to be doing it better than us.  So, where is the hope in this? How do we find peace and joy even when life seems a bit crazy? And is that even possible? Today’s guest is going to help with this! Our guest for today’s episode is Raquelle Stevens. Raquelle is an author, producer, and host based in Los Angeles, California. You might recognize her from starring in the Apple documentary called, Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, and the HBO Max series Selena + Chef. This year she released a book called, The Sunshine Mind: 100 Days to Finding the Hope and Joy You Want. I love the word “sunshine” because that’s what this conversation felt like to me. In this episode, we learn how to embrace our path and stop trying to measure up to everyone else, how to manage our stress and anxiety in practical ways, and how to experience just a little more joy in our lives, even when everything else feels crazy. Friends, I left this conversation feeling lighter and so encouraged and I hope you feel the same.
