44: Happy Hour and Coffee Date Conversations
Play • 50 min

It’s here, the launch of Season 4!

Jill Devine took some time over the last couple of weeks to reflect on Seasons 1, 2, & 3 and think about what she loved and what she felt was missing from those Seasons. That reflection led to some changes for Season 4.

Jill will still have guests and experts on, but she’s going to include more “happy hour and/or coffee date conversations” … you know, the types of conversations where you have no idea what you’re going to talk about, but you know something good will come out of it? Adding these types of conversations was inspired by a DM she received through her Instagram (@jilldevine) from Cabanne Howard:

Welcome back! I have loved following you and watch you reinvent and emerge stronger than ever after a career pivot. Since I have two kids and a career, I thought I’d drop you a line to say if you are ever in need of a guest, I’d love to talk all things motherhood, being a wife while still managing to kick professional ass (and not have a mental breakdown in the process!). If this – or another topic – is of interest, just let me know. Thanks and keep shining!

Here are some of the topics you will hear Jill and Cabanne talk about in this week’s episode:

*Jill and Cabanne becoming parents later in life, or as doctors like to say, “advanced maternal age”. Insert eye roll here.

*Infertility

*Parenting in your 20’s vs. 40’s

*Parenting pre-pandemic, during quarantine & pandemic

*How parenting is SO hard. Cabanne has started writing about her thoughts and feelings and posting the blogs on her website.

*Trash TV

*Raising girls vs. boys

*Being a female entrepreneur and small business owner to a marketing firm, Kaleidoscope Management Group.

*Growing their Faith

New to Season 4, the Supermom Shoutout! Jill would like to acknowledge and recognize the hard work moms put in on the daily. It can be a thankless job at times, and Jill wants these moms to know their worth. This week’s Supermom Shoutout goes to Robyn of Wildwood, MO! Her husband, Mark, nominated her and said:

Since March we had both been working from home while also keeping a 3 year old safe and (relatively) content.  While we identified the privilege of having that option, it was still stressful navigating all of it with an immuno-compromised daughter.

Now that classes are back in session, Robyn is working extra hard.  She's a clinical nursing instructor at Maryville University and took on a behavioral health class (that she's never taught) this semester to help with the transition to online many schools are taking.  She is typically talking to herself about how she can make things easier for her students without sacrificing quality. I am also in classes, so a few nights a week she solo-parents after work so I can focus on my own schooling.  

Robyn – YOU are seen and YOU are supported!

To nominate a Supermom (or you can nominate yourself) email hello@jilldevine.com. Submit the name of the Supermom, where they're from, and a brief description as to why Jill should shout out this particular Supermom.
