It's no secret that Brie, Britt, and I are in newer leadership roles. In fact, we are slowly closing in on one year of being in these positions. Trust us when we say it hasn't come without its challenges. It's beneficial to talk about challenges with friends or family.

In this week's episode, we talk about why accepting compliments is always such a struggle.

I used to think being a multitasker was awesome. In fact, it’s written in my Twitter profile: “Master Multitasker of all the things.” I was kick-ass at working while going to college (sort of). When I became a mom, I thought it was awesome I could prep dinner while being on a conference call and working on client projects and also helping my kids with their homework.
