Stop SHOULDING on Yourself


This week's show highlights:

  • Keeping our kids safe on and offline
  • Stop "shoulding" on yourself

For 14 years Heather Ryan was a Special Agent with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). During that time she investigated felonies such as child abuse, sexual assault, narcotics, homicide, and espionage. After all those years catching bad guys, Heather was missing time with her kids and knew she had to make a change. So, she turned in her badge and gun and started Safe in the City, where she teaches women & girls safety workshops and self-defense classes. Recently Heather has partnered with Janel Patterson, the CEO of Frienedy (a private social media alternative) to form Get Safe Academy. Together the two moms are teaching other parents how to keep their kids safe physically and online. They also teach parents how to help their kids have a positive digital footprint to impress colleges and/or to land that perfect job.

Britt Reints is the author of An Amateur's Guide to the Pursuit of Happiness. She has shared her practical approach to happiness on The Huffington Post, Yahoo, Redbook, and Countless other media sites, as
well as on her award-winning site Britt enjoys teaching audiences at conferences and corporations all over the United States and has-been a featured speaker for TEDx Pittsburgh, Google, and Fox Studios. In 2011, Britt and her family sold their home and traveled around the country in an RV for 10 months. Today she lives in Pittsburgh and tries daily to balance her own commitment to
happiness with her real-world obligations.

So pull up a chair, shake up a cocktail, and kick up your heels while you tune in to the refreshingly real talk about what it takes to be a functional - and fun - parent in today's wild world of raising kids.
