Filed in Business Strategy, Emotional Intelligence, Podcast — April 12, 2022

About the Episode

Welcome back to the Shamelessly Ambitious Podcast. Today’s episode is an interview with my husband and I am so excited to share it with you all! We recently celebrated 8 years of marriage, 12 and a half years together in total, and some major business & life milestones. 

If you’ve been hanging out here – you’ve heard that these celebrations don’t come without their fair share of hardships, as well. Jake and I are sitting down to recap everything we’ve been through together and give you our take on what it means to be both ambitious and devoted in our relationship. 

We’re talking about all the juicy stuff: what it’s been like being married to me, how parenting does NOT come naturally to either of us, how we handle guilt and judgment from others to ultimately put our relationship first, and so much more. I want to get into it shamelessly, have the conversations that more people ought to be having, and maybe spark conversations between you and your partner as well. 

So without further ado, tune in and meet my husband: Jake. We’re so excited to have you here!
