I appreciate what this podcast aims to do. But the way it is delivered and the sentiments the host shares are mostly relevant to middle to upper class privileged individuals. I hate to be “that person” that brings this up... but I’m truly having a hard time listening to the host without cringing at how egotistical she sounds. (Her nanny, her children’s activities, her 3.1 mile daily run, etc.) These are lovely things, don’t get me wrong, but not a perspective that many people can relate to. Perhaps this is her audience, but she’s lost me. I had high hopes!
Helpful and SHORT 👍🏽
I’ll be at honest I’d rather be listening to something about a more interesting topic but the reality is I need this help. But I don’t want to listen to it for an hour so the small little tips are little bite-size chunks that I can work on or at least think about working on. ;) Thank you Laura for helping me with my crazy life!
Look forward to this in the morning
The episodes clock in around 10 minutes, which is just right for cleaning up the kitchen or folding a load of laundry. Laura is easy to listen to, shares thought provoking ideas, and it feels like chatting with a friend. For reference I’m a SAHM with young kids, so you don’t need to be career focused or even have the same circumstances as the host to find value in her ideas (in other words ignore the review that slams her for having a nanny).
