TNW Live! with Sasha Gray

TNW Live! with Sasha Gray

JOURNEY WISE GUIDE, MOTIVATIONAL HUMORIST, BUSINESS COACH

Welcome to Season 1, episode 4 of The Notable Woman Live! I’m starting to get more into a groove by this time, and I also love Sasha so it’s not hard to have an amazing time. That’s right, I interview Sasha Gray of Scattered Sasha, and we talk about the importance of your journey.

Who’s Sasha?

Sasha is a Sassy Southern Belle, who never met a stage she didn’t love. Her favorite color is glitter, and she loves to tell a story (and what a good job she does!). She speaks sarcasm and Southern fluently, and her favorite exercise is running her mouth. She’s also a motivational speaker, a writer, a business consultant and a motivational mindset mentor, who loves to scatter as much joy, happiness, laughter, and glitter into the world as she can each day and see where it falls.  She believes 100% in Your Journey.  Sasha believes we all have one, and we all traipse through our own journey at our own pace, stopping, pausing, turning left or right or around and speeding up and slowing down. But since it’s Your Journey (yours and mine!), and yours is very different from mine so you own it and know that you have the map in your back pocket.

In this episode of The Notable Woman Live!, that is exactly what we discuss!

TNW21: Meet the Boy Expert with Janet Allison

TNW21: Meet the Boy Expert with Janet Allison

About this episode

Boy expert Janet Allison is a former teacher and mother of girls. How did she end up being an expert for boys? From teaching! And from what she saw, boys were failing education, or more accurately said, education was failing them.

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, Janet Allison educated me on the many, many ways that boys’ brains are different and gave me some strategies for dealing with my son and… my husband.

This episode is for anyone wondering how to bridge the gap between male and female communication styles, as defined by certain biological traits. In particular, if you have a school aged boy who’s having a tough time, this is a great episode to listen to!

About Janet Allison, Boy Expert

Boy Expert Janet AllisonAfter receiving her degree in Elementary Education from the University of Maine at Farmington, Janet Allison began her teaching career in a Waldorf School with a class of 10 boys and 2 girls. She quickly realized she had NOT been prepared for the differences in the way boys learn and the way girls learn. Through trial and error, extensive reading and research, and sheer determination, Janet was at last able to understand those parts of her boys that were hard-wired (and therefore unchangeable) and the things that she could change – by making lessons more active and interactive and providing plenty of outside time and movement in the classroom. With her many years of classroom experience, she is able to ‘talk the talk’ with teachers in both public and private schools – including those following Waldorf and Montessori principles.

Wishing to reach more people with this vital message, she wrote Boys Alive! Bring Out Their Best and has collaborated with many international experts to create virtual educational summits, interviewing experts and sharing wisdom with thousands of parents and teachers. She hosts BOY TALK, interviewing parenting experts and expert parents on a monthly theme.

TNW20: Intimate Partner Violence with Kelley Rainey

TNW20: Intimate Partner Violence with Kelley Rainey

About this episode

Intimate partner violence. No matter what walk of life you come from, no matter how educated, intimate partner violence can affect you. Woman, man. Gay, straight. Black, white. Intimate partner violence does not discriminate.

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview Kelley Rainey, Director of Domestic Violence Programs for Family and Children’s Services of Central Maryland, Inc. Kelley and I went to college together, and I have been impressed from afar in how committed she is to improving the lives of women through her work. When I asked her if she would do an interview with me, she immediately said, “YES!” and also that this topic, intimate partner violence, was what she wanted to speak with me about.

I truly love doing this podcast, and this is my favorite interview to date. We talk about a heavy, important, and impactful subject in a way that I think can help, not harm, while also being respectful and still having a laugh and a chuckle because that’s what we do.

This is an excellent resource for people who want to be better prepared for how intimate partner violence is already affecting their lives, if they’re concerned about someone they love and don’t know what to do, or just want to experience solidarity with a woman who cares about you and makes it her life’s work to say, “I see you.”
