I know a lot of us have seen this and this especially affect those of us with kids in car seats. Its just annoying to think how did you park knowing i may well absolutely cant get back into my car?! The crazy thing is the person driving the enromous monstrocity would be thd one with the attitude and you shouldnt be because your part of the problem. You want the latest humongous safe automobile they offer but you dont realize the world is not setup for that crap. The world needs to build bigger parking spots that take into account this issue! I shouldnt havd to climb in my car through the damn trunk to put the carseat or child in the car!!! Just needed to vent. with love TCML.

We recorded this show at the end of 2015 after meeting LaFern Batie at the Women’s Conference in the Fall. LaFern was a speaker, let me state that again. LaFern was A SPEAKER there and the minute she started talking Wendy McGinnis started to text me telling me we just HAD to have her on this show. I couldn’t have agreed more so we damn near tackled LaFern as she walked out the door and she said yes.
Sadly this is Wendy McGinnis’ last show. Wendy has taken a position in law enforcement and we are sad but happy for her so if you think I was hogging the microphone and the interview, not true. It was during this interview that the phone call came in offering Wendy the position so she left the room to discuss her new future.
In this show we talk about so many different things. LaFern shares many different thoughts and gives great advice to anyone starting out on their own, anyone who has a dream, anyone who wants to be their own boss, take a look at our show notes here and then ready? Set? Listen!
