New Must-Listen Podcasts

This is not a list of podcasts that are being promoted everywhere and you are tired of hearing about. This is a list of podcasts that have me hooked. They are compelling stories with binge-worthy episodes.

Happy Face

Summary: “For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.”

Why I Like It: We don’t hear from the family of a serial killer…ever? It’s mind-boggling how Melissa’s father could kill so many women, yet have a wife and kids. She takes us through her childhood, what kind of father her dad was, and how being the daughter of a serial killer changes your life in ways you never thought or asked for.

Broken Harts

Summary: “Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart—six beautiful black children, ranging in age from 12 to 19—were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white. On Jen’s Facebook page, it looked as if they were the perfect blended family, even earning the nickname “Hart Tribe” from friends. Then, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1. The news of the murder-suicide shocked their friends and made national headlines, leaving many wondering what possibly led to the fatal crash.”

Why I Like It: I had never heard of this story before, however, the story of their seeming murder-suicide isn’t the first time the Hart family was in the news. Jennifer and Sarah seemed like doting, loving mothers and wives. After all, they adopted two sets of siblings out of the foster care system. But as friends and family are interviewed about the couple and their children, it appears to have been an incredibly crafted facade.

Over My Dead Body

Summary: “Dan and Wendi are two good-looking attorneys whose wedding is featured in the New York Times. After two kids, their marriage falls apart. This leads to a bad breakup, an even worse divorce, and a murder case involving a menagerie of high-priced alters and unexpected co-conspirators. This is a story that says as much about love and marriage as it does about justice, revenge, and the lengths some people will go to get what they want.”

Why I Like It: This case is shocking and had twists and turns that I was not expecting. It’s a terrible story of how far some families will go to get what they want – no matter the cost.

The Dropout

Summary: “Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs” find herself facing criminal charges — to which she pleaded not guilty — and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way?”

Why I Like It: I had never heard of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes before this podcast (I’m not one to keep track of new medical devices). Listening to this podcast, episode by episode, I was floored by her level of deception and lack of care for humanity. HBO also recently released their documentary on this story. Definitely adding it to my watchlist.

  • Being brave and growing your business does not come from staying safe and never sharing your work.

I work with a lot of service-based business owners and one common mistake I see across all of their websites is they are not presenting their services and business with confidence.

It can be scary to act confidently. I get it. I face this fear every week!

However, if you want to reach more people because you *know* that you can help them in a real way, then start by showing up and putting your work out there.

So where do you begin? Head over to my blog where I’m sharing how I push past the fear of putting myself out there (link in profile). #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurship #smallbiztips #goldencolorado #denverco #webdesigner #mondaymotivation
  • So much for autumn 🍂 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • Seeing as today is #MentalHealthDay I thought I'd share a little bit about my ESA dog Jax, what being an ESA dog means, and the difference between an ESA, therapy, and service animal.

Over the years Jax has traveled with me all across the country and even did his first international trip last year!

So to start, here’s the difference between the three…

A THERAPY dog is a dog that is trained to offer comfort and to interact with people to help them feel better. They often have the training to be calm around medical equipment (things like IV lines, wheelchairs, and oxygen tanks). These dogs can be certified at different levels and could potentially work at a children’s hospital or nursing home.

A SERVICE dog is specially trained to perform a function or job for an owner who has a physical, intellectual, or emotional disability. This can be anything from seeing-eye dogs to medical alert dogs trained to sniff out seizures, heart defects, and other medical issues.

An ESA dog is an emotional support dog that offers comfort to people who are diagnosed with an emotional or mental health disorder. In order to qualify for an ESA dog, you must be certified as emotionally disabled by a psychologist, therapist, psychiatrist or other duly-licensed mental health professional. Unlike service or therapy dogs, ESA dogs do not have to go through a specific training but MUST qualify by not causing a disturbance or hardship while out in public spaces and for a property manager/landlord.

I won’t go into the details of why my doctor, therapist and I decided that certifying Jax as an ESA dog would be a great option for me, but ever since Jax has been by my side I haven’t had one major panic attack since. I mean…look how cute he is! He has no travel anxiety whatsoever - in a plane, in a car, on a train, nada. He’s very calm in public and has excellent leash manners and the temperament to go with being an ESA dog.

Even though traveling with Jax definitely brings more stares and all the extra attention from fellow travelers can be uncomfortable, having him by my side is 100% worth it.

Swipe to see photos of Jax at werk and a puppy pic!

  • When I started working with Caroline of Linden Co. Floristry, she wanted a new website design that would represent her business in a sophisticated way, but still capture the elements of her brand that are unique and unusual.

She needed a website that would not only attract the attention of future clients, but also inspire them and cast the vision of what it would be like to work with Linden Co on floral design for their event.

In this website visual guide I put forth two options of what the vibe and feel of the new website could look like. I do this so that before any coding beings, we are on the same page. Same page = streamlined project + less stress!

Which one is your favorite? Tell me in the comments!

  • The minute I sit down to take an online course a pile of pups arrive 😂it's getting colder each day up here in the mountains so I don't mind the cuddles.

Every Friday I've begun taking some time out of my work day to continue learning and polishing up my skills as a strategic web designer.

Here I'm finishing up a course on conversion copywriting that has COMPLETELY changed the way I write sales pages, client websites, and even my own website! So glad I decided to take it.

Do you take any online courses? If you could take a course on anything in the world, what would it be?
