Working Parent Resource

The Working Parent Resource podcast explores the "New Rules" of Working Parenthood. Society is changing at an unprecedented rate, and working parents are struggling to keep up. We're faced with challenges that didn't exist even 10 years ago in our careers, our relationships, as parents, and as individuals. We don't have a model for how to blend all of the different areas of our lives in a way that really works in the modern world. This show draws wisdom from areas such as personal development, learning theory, productivity, leadership, relationship management, and psychology in general to help build meaningful lives, connected families, and more dynamic workplaces... one family and one company at a time.

Episode Summary: 

Today we are chatting with Rebecca Gregerson, who runs Pieces, an art and décor business.  She also has a brand new organizational app out called My Proxy Fox.  She is always bursting with new ideas and loves finding creative ways to bring them to life.  Outside of chasing her career dreams, her heart belongs to her super supportive and all around awesome husband, two spunky and fabulous littles (and two of the sweetest fur babies in town). 

Rebecca has designed an app that I think can really be a game-changer for a lot of working parents.  We talk a lot about it on the podcast so I won’t go into too much detail here, but I’ve been trying this app out recently, and it has seriously cut down on so much preparation time and has allowed me to stop re-inventing the wheel for everything I do to manage my home.  Right now the app is a free resource on iTunes, but that may change in the future so I encourage you to check it out.

What You’ll Learn in This Episode: 

  • We talk about a new tool created by Rebecca, My Proxy Fox, which is an app that allows anyone who helps you in your life (babysitters, housekeepers, dog-sitters… even spouses, etc.) get access to all of the important information they need when you’re unavailable so things can run smoothly.
  • How you can save time and gain peace of mind by having your family systems, processes, and logistics thought through clearly ahead of time, written down, and available for other people at the touch of a button.
  • How to get organized in your life so you don’t have to re-invent the wheel every time you leave town, have to work late, or go out on a date night.

Episode Summary: 

Robin Kegerise is a Career and Life Coach with nine years of Human Resources consulting experience. She has a Master's degree in Human Resources, and is a Change Management Specialist.  In this episode, we dive into a topic that I think just about every working parent can appreciate: recovering from work burnout.  I don’t know about you guys, but I spent most of my adult life going through a pretty unhealthy cycle of working super-hard, burning out, and then recovering before I started the whole cycle all over again. 

Today Robin and I talk about how we both went through some pretty intense experiences as new working moms, and how we were able to climb out of that black hole of burnout.  Robin is so thoughtful and honest, and I think the advice and insights she shares in this episode will really hit home for a lot of you.

What You’ll Learn in This Episode: 

  • We chat about how Robin created a new work environment for herself to manage the levels of stress and burnout she was experiencing.
  • Learn common red flags that might indicate you’re experiencing burnout yourself.
  • The surprising moment when Robin was able to let go of a life of overwhelm and how she started moving toward a life of balance.

Episode Summary:

Today I’m talking to all of you over-achievers out there.  You know who you are.  You’re not just ambitious, you take ambition to a whole new level.  You’re the one who can handle everything.  You’re the person everyone comes to when they have a problem or need something or aren’t sure what to do.  You’re the problem solver. You GET THINGS DONE and you get a lot of confidence from that.

But as most of you know, there can be a downside to being an overachiever that many of us don’t really talk about.  It can be stressful.  It can be draining.  We can very easily push ourselves beyond our limits and we’re highly susceptible to burnout as a result.

And after we have kids, being an overachiever can get tricky really fast.  So today I’m going to be talking about how to manage your inner-overachiever so you can find some peace in your life.  I don’t necessarily think you need to abandon that inner-drive you have.  But I do think there’s a way to manage it so it doesn’t drive you to unhealthy levels of stress and burnout.  And that's what we'll talk about today.

What You’ll Learn in This Episode:

  • The main distinctions between a “High Achiever” and an “Overachiever” and how I have learned to identify the difference in my everyday life.
  • What I got out of being an overachiever. What motivated me to continue working beyond my limits, and the reasons why it took me so long to realize how much stress and anxiety my high standards were creating in my life.
  • How I finally let go of being an “Overachiever” and was able to harness my inner-drive in a healthier way while increasing my energy and results. 
  • How you can build check-points into your life so you can avoid falling into your natural tendency to push yourself too far.

Christin Morgan is a Registered Dietitian with a Master’s of Science in Nutrition from University of Memphis. Having lost 80 pounds through healthy diet changes and taking control of emotional eating, she strives to help other women do the same.

It takes a lot to stay healthy, and trying to fit in healthy meals, fitness, sleep, and all of those other things that keep our bodies moving seems to take up precious time, right?  We all know it’s important, and even more than that, we all know our health is critical to keeping up the pace in our busy lives.  But for some reason, these seem to be the areas where it’s easiest to cut corners.  We tell ourselves we’ll exercise tomorrow, or we’re exhausted from a long day at work and grab take-out on our way home.  Well today we’re going to be going over some of the things you can do to integrate healthier habits into your busy workweek.  These insights and tips are specifically designed for the busy working parent, keeping in mind all of the other demands on your time, so hopefully you’ll get some value out of today’s interview. 

What You’ll Learn in This Episode: 

  • What makes staying healthy as a working parent so challenging, and how to overcome those challenges so you can prioritize your health.
  • How to approach your health in a holistic way to increase consistency and motivation.
  • How your unconscious and underlying feelings about yourself factor into your habits around your health.
