ExMoShow Podcast: New Episode, Janet Baruch

In the latest Expressing Motherhood podcast episode I interviewed Janet Baruch.

Landscape Designer Janet Baruch. Owner of Greenway Gardens.
Landscape Designer Janet Baruch. Owner of Greenway Gardens.

She is a landscape designer based out of Richmond, Virginia. After going through a divorce, years ago now, she went and earned her certificate to become a landscape designer and started her own successful business, Greenway Gardens.

A parterre garden Janet designed years ago now flourishing.

Janet has two girls in their 20’s and 3 stepsons in their late 20’s and early 30’s and is happily re-married.

She’s also my Aunt and one of my favorite people!

We covered how she built her business, at first working for free. How she tells people right up front how much she charges and sends over a contract before beginning work and she admits she needs to do more with social media. She does have an Instagram account but tends to post a lot of photos of her dog.

Her dog Oliver and flowers!

We had a great conversation and it’s quite informative, if you listen to it and have the time please leave a review on iTunes and subscribe to the show. In this day and age toughness seems to be defined by tattoos and hair dye, though my aunt only sports blonde hair and no tattoos she is tough, smart and cool while also offering some Southern charm.

Enjoy!

New Podcast Episode With Megan Dolan

In this episode Expressing Motherhood speaks to Long Beach mom/writer/actress Megan Dolon.

u_30165_i_1854124

I recently watched Megan in her one-woman show, “Snack.” She performed it as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

It can’t get any more real than this. Megan Dolan is a powerhouse storyteller, a veritable “Desperate Housewife” coming to terms with own fears and anxieties in the most practical and careful ways, through vivid, lively writing that strikes a beautiful, emotional balance between past and present. Highly Recommended. —Tracey Paleo (Gia on the Move)

Sunday, July 12th at The Asylum Lab you can grab her show one more time as it has been extended.

We talked about how she would write for 10 minutes each night after her two young kids went to bed and that’s how she wrote her show. We covered a lot more and you can listen to the episode here. It’s also on iTunes. Please subscribe! You can also listen to it by clicking below.

Podcast: Expressing Motherhood Talks To Elizabeth Soutter

Last night in my hot closet I talked to Boston mom Elizabeth Soutter for the Expressing Motherhood podcast.

We talked about:

  • Why she shut down her popular blog in 2011.
  • How she was blogging about motherhood, before Dooce.
  • Why she doesn’t trust a lot of what bloggers are writing anymore due to so much sponsored content.
  • Paying for an office outside of the home.

Elizabeth has been in Expressing Motherhood twice, once in the Boston 2010 show and then the second time in Chicago in 2013.
