This week’s interview is with powerhouse Alicia Menendez - news anchor, author, podcast co-host, and mama of two. We talk about how she balances her multitude of jobs with raising her daughters to the meaning behind her book, “The Likeability Trap” and why it’s more complicated for women of color to feel likeable at work. In Bricia’s words, Alicia “takes us to church” during this episode with the gems and advice she shares for working women and moms alike.

Bricia is back from maternity leave! It’s been a while since the two of us kept it real. This week we talk about how we need to communicate our feelings with our spouses during all stages of our relationships - just dating, postpartum, or married for over 50 years. We can’t expect them to do things everything we need; they can’t read our minds! You shouldn't be afraid to ask for help, and our latest vent session will help remind you it’s okay to do just that.

A mother always knows best and when it comes to Bricia’s birth story, she really spoke her daughter's, Augustina, birth into existence.

We’re also talking about breastfeeding, how she is nourishing her body postpartum, and the difference between her first & second pregnancy.
