Episode 27

The Millennial Career Struggle

In this episode we chat to four millennials who currently struggle or who have struggled with their career. Millennials get a bad rap for not settling in one career or trying to do too many things at once. Is it a millennial thing? Are we just indecisive? Do we just have FOMO? Or do we just take on too much because have one steady job is no longer realistic?

Jessica Roberts-Farina

Jessica Roberts-Farina is a communications and marketing professional born and raised in Vancouver. Her journey into tracking her cervical fluid began in May after experiencing a complete breakdown of her health and a decision to take control of her health and wellbeing. When not tracking her menstrual cycles, Jess spends her time dancing, birding, and trying to be best friends with all the dogs in her neighbourhood.



Sabrina Miso

Philip Volna

Philip is a Ukrainian digital content strategist, self-help consultant, and entrepreneur. He is also the author and founder of the website lifetomake.com.

From a very young age Philip felt very lost and suffered from depression. At around the age of 14 he felt pressure to figure out what career path to take but didn’t know what he really wanted to do. At such a young age he noticed his family and other families struggling from paycheque to paycheque and he knew that he didn’t want the same.




Torry is a young professional working in Victoria, BC. She hosts a podcast called Ready to be Petty, which discusses reality tv, celebrity gossip, pop culture, and stories that have happened in her life (all things petty, after all). In a world that often deems women’s interests as superficial and fangirl culture as unintelligent, Torry is attempting to be real and honest about her passions and interests, in hopes that you will join her. She is ready to make your morning commute a lot more fun. You can listen on your favourite podcast app and follow her podcasting journey via social media here: https://linktr.ee/rtbppodcast.

I hope that you enjoy each of the conversations but as always there is some adult language so when listening, it’s recommended that you pop your headphones on!

Episode 30 – Being a Traditional Wife

In this episode we chat to Nadia La Russa. Nadia describes herself as a “spiritually traditional” wife, meaning that she lives by the bible’s definition of being a wife: ” Wives must submit to their husbands as is fitting in the Lord”. (Colossians 3:18). Nadia explains what this means and how it works for her relationship and how it doesn’t mean that she isn’t a feminist.
