What if every moment of your adolescence could be captured in a snap? What if every thought you had as a teenager could be sent in a few thumb taps?

With smartphones in hand, kids today are experiencing a level of constant connectedness the world has never known. Unfortunately, many experts say it's causing never before seen levels of anxiety and...


no. 38 - The Social Skills Episode

He doesn't get invited to birthday parties. She says nobody wanted to sign her yearbook. He reports sitting alone most days at lunch. She can't tell you a single "good" thing that happened at school. Lessons about getting along as a kid used to be learned playing hide-and-seek in a neighbor's backyard or picking up a basketball game on the street corner. But as today's children spend more time indoors and on screens, many experts say it's hurting their development of social skills. As...

Her clients include Fortune 500 executives,...


no. 34 - The Apps Episode

A phone used to be the thing you hoped would ring and your best friend would be on the other line waiting to tell you about her day. Now, it's your taxi service, shopping cart, yogi and to-do list. No matter what it is, there's always an app for that. The question is which ones are the best apps for your life? In this episode I'm flying solo... or rather, giving voice to all the unmillennials of the This Unmillennial Life Facebook group who shared with me their fave "best apps" for their...


no. 33 - The BeachBody Episode

BeachBody may sound like the kind of program only the young, supermodel striving types should try. But the ease, affordability and workout-anywhere nature of the program actually make it an ideal choice for many unmillennials. Or at least that's what one fan of the show thinks. Today's show is her story. In this episode I interview Julie Staley -- a talented entrepreneur, mom and newbie to the BeachBody workout program.

no. 31 - The Peloton Episode

If the phrase "home-based fitness" makes you think of DVDs and ellipticals collecting dust in the corner, you haven't met a Peloton owner. The internet-connected spin bike has reached almost cultish status in a very quick time, but is it worth the hype (and price tag)? In this episode I interview Kim Nelson -- owner and creative director of Red Chalk Studios, a brand development, marketing and creative agency in Virginia Beach, VA. After years of a traditional gym membership, Kim found...


no. 30 - The Thinx Episode

Surely you've seen the ads in your Facebook feed. You know the ones -- the lady in the unassuming panties with a caption along the lines of "underwear for women who have periods." Those are Thinx panties and today's podcast gives a real-life recap of what it's like to buy, wear and wash them.

Today's podcast features friend of the show, Deanna...


no. 25 - The Uber Episode

The Jetsons told us growing up that the future of our car experience was up in the air, literally.

no. 23 - The This Is Us {Foster Parenting} Episode

When real life finds its way onto your TV screen at night, how accurate does the portrayal feel?

no. 22 - The Getting Organized Episode

A digital society with no mail and no clutter may be the stuff millennials dream of. But the reality for many unmillennials is we're still drowning in a sea of our own stuff. Having spent years accumulating the day-to-day goods that make up a 40- to 50-something life, GenXers now find themselves at a crossroads of wanting more order while living an otherwise unordered life. Today's podcast features a leading expert on all things organizational, Lisa Woodruff. Lisa is a home organization...
