The Power of Pussy with Mama Gena

Earlier this year I interviewed an incredible woman, someone whose work has changed the way I feel about my body, sexuality, gender and life: Regena Thomashauser, aka Mama Gena, who, throughher in-person and online workshops called Mama Gena’sSchool of Womanly Arts, and books by the same name, Thomashauer offers a fascinating history on the power of female sensuality and sexuality, biology lessons on female anatomy and the possibilities (and fruits of) hours-long orgasms. Our interview, re-released here, hinged on the release of her latest book,Pussy: A Reclamation, which was released a few weeks ago. Leading up to the book launch, I noticed on social media that Thomashauer and her team pleaded with fans to promote her new title, since Facebook banned her doing so, since it contained the lewd word,pussy.I got a little worried for her, knowing full well that paid social media promotion is considered one of the most powerful marketing tools today. How would she get the word out about...

How this work-at-home mom launched a 7-figure social media business

In the 90s, social media entrepreneurKim Garst was sick of being broke, so she launched a seven-figure business from her dining room table with no marketing. When she maxed out on that web design business, Garst became involvedin a wildly successful networkmarketing business, which morphed into consulting, and eventually Boom Social, a social media marketing firm that is considered a leader in its industry. In this episode, Kim and I discuss: How the heck she is such an involved mom of two, and wife, while building these killer businesses. Her innate comfort with making money. Why her derailment from plans to attend law school by motherhood was the best thing that happened to her career. Why selling your knowledge is often far more lucrative and impactful than doing the actual job. The importance of surrounding yourself with other positive, ambitious people. Her husband's attitude about her professional and financial success. How this work-at-home mom launched a 7-figure social medi...

Jean Chatzky is a personal finance journalist, bestselling author of eight books and financial editor for NBC's Today Show. Here we talk about: Focus on earning vs. skimping - especially for women. "Your financial life doesn't work how much you save if you're not bringing in money." "I enjoy earning money, it makes me feel safe, confident and independent."

How to get dads involved with shared parenting after divorce

This is an important episode. Terry Brennan, co-founder of Leading Women for Shared Parenting, an activist organization responsible for introducing legislation in 20 states, that makes equal, shared parenting the presumption in family court. This is a critical issue for children, who suffer from absentee fathers in alarming figures, as well as men, who are automatically reduced to paychecks and an afterthought in family life. Shared parenting is critical for women, too, as involved co-parents, both inside and outside of marriage, mean women have far more support at home, which allows us to thrive as parents, as well as professionals and earners. After all, we can't be equals at work, if men are not equals at home.

The practical guide to marriage for alpha females with Suzanne Venker

Suzanne Venker's New York TimesBestsellerThe Alpha Female's Guide to Men and Marriage: How Love Worksis only a testament to the fact that there are a lot of alpha women out there — women with difficult marriages, women searching for romantic love, women who worry their skyrocketing career and direct ways threaten her marriage — or the prospect of finding one. Progressives, I hear your objections. I get that women should not hold themselves back for the sake of their relationship. That men need to step up and accept strong women. But what if you are just an intolerable, domineering bitch who needs to be called out? What if you are just annoying? What if you tried an experiment, and simply tried a new way of interacting with the men in your life? Just as a test, to see if it works?

This Syracuse, New York married momof four was living the American dream ... 3,500 square-foot custom house, two luxury cars parked in the driveway, new furniture, dinners out ... and $40,000 in credit card debt. Fast forward through slinging steaks at a local restaurant, selling off everything she and her husband owned, clipping coupons and budgeting like a mo-fo and relocating to a tiny condo in a communitywhere she wasshunned by moms who lived in big, newly furnished custom homes. All along this family has chronicled their journey out of debt, thanks to her platform for helping families live a fantastic life within their means — most famously for her slow-cooker Aldi meal plans (20 meals for $150 = mind blown). What I love so much about Lauren, is that she is so freaking honest and real. Also, that she has parlayed her passion and authenticity into an incredible, profitable online business, and media appearances on TODAY, Fox & Friends, Rachel Ray...
